The bottom line is this: we are all human. The college sports world in particular is a demanding and unforgiving sort--i.e. Oklahoma just fired Capel in a season fraught with coaching changes. AD's, coaches and even university presidents are under pressure to keep the NCAA ATMs running. It may be wrong to bend the rules, but it is understandable given the climate.

Ha! Look at this. Former Buckeye and now talking head Kirk Herbstreit has moved from Columbus to Nashville.

Nobody in Columbus likes Herbstreit though

Used to be one guy that did but he moved to Nashville

Remember the 13 year old that Lane Kiffin offered last year? Well now the kid has attended his first practice. Go Lane!

If I remember correctly his dad and the recruiting video service he hired to pimp out his kid are already doing all the handling at this point.

So, then. Everyone is bending the rules. Or found a loophole they could drive a Big Wheel through anyway.

I should make it clear that no rules are being broken here. Kiffen never actually offered him a scholarship, basically the kid made a verbal commitment which Kiffen accepted. As far as going to practice is concerned, Kiffen is in the clear on this as well as the kid is still in 8th grade...once he completes 8th grade he will no longer be able to attend practice, you know, since sane coaches don't cozy up to 8th graders anyway.

I hate Kiffen and I think he's morally wrong here but no rules were broken.

I wonder if a new rule will be implemented because of this?

The real laugh here is how do we really know this 8th grader's talent won't plateau early? If it does won't Lane look the fool

You are probably spot on, but I can't really comment, since I am not an expert on NCAA rules violations. However, I submit that no rules were broken because even the NCAA in its wildest imaginings never considered something like this occurring.

Exactly.

Yeah the article mentions that. It's interesting because it could put Lane (or another coach if he's canned in the future) in a tough situation. Kid hits his peak after his sophomore year and is more of a Sun Belt or a 1AA player, Lane pulls the scholly and the kids dream is shattered. He's proven himself to be scummy enough to do such a thing. On the flip side though he could try to save face and give the kid a scholly anyway but he's just taking up a scholly that could be used on a better player.

It'll be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out in 4 years.

Could this be the tip of the iceberg? I still predict that Auburn will eventually lose their crystal ball.
