I'd say it goes far beyond Saban and Cam Newton.  But anyway, that's really interesting to read.  And who can deny that he doesn't make solid points?

He makes sound points. When you are going to come off all righteous you have to be prepared to become the target. I don't think he has been even close enough to sainthood to be the figurehead on this matter. Everything he said is spot on. The fact is that if a lunatic tells you there is an axe murderer in the closet, you turn and look and the lunatic is the..wait, thats not right. If a preacher preaches, he has to be an example of what he preaches. Meyer wasn't rampant with over-recruiting, but he did have 30+ guys arrested from his team in his tenure. He can't preach character development anymore than I can preach about abstinence. The person to head this argument up would be no other than our coach but I don't like his stance on it, the fact that he doesn't think that it gives teams much of an advantage. People have criticized our coach because of the recent situation but I don't thin that incident is anywhere close to the negativity we saw at Florida or anywhere else in the SouthEast. The only problem with Tressel heading this up is that he is from the B1G. I think the B1G should only get involved if asked to take a stance with another conference. Reputation goes a long way toward accomplishment. The B1G has the "Holier than though reputation" already. It would take flight if someone like Mark Richt and Georgia pushed the issue or even a lesser offender like the Pac12. If they used the B1G as a model and asked that we piggy back, I think we could accomplish something. 

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.
