In the SEC this is only an issue when you are not winning games.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

Is this Kiffin's fault?

How is this not a bigger deal than most of the "infractions" in cfb?

No way they are bowl eligible, not that it would matter either way.....

Tennessee get any Fulmer Cup points for this?

Tennessee 20 players arrested from 2004-2005

Lane Kiffins one year splurge of secondary violations, that he laughed off and claimed he didn't know the rules

basketball program out of control

now this

does make you wonder what it takes for the NCAA,  ESPN Outside the Lines, Yahoo, or Sports Illustrated to investigate

BTW The SEC is home to 3 out of the past 4 Fulmer Cup Winners.  South Carolina wasn't bad enough to over take South Florida in 2009 or the SEC would well be on its way to a 5-PEAT in the C-U-P!

Nothing will happen to any SEC school because they are the cash cow in the business of college football.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

says the guy who forgets USC fresh off a Bowl Ban, and OSU currently on one.  Cash Cow...not the reason.  Southern ethics and tactics maybe.  Wasn't long ago Florida State had 1/2 their team doing academic fruad, the still went to a bowl game, forfieted some games but otherwise  no other penalties.  Southern Hospitality must make NCAA "forget" what they were there looking for.

USC's fanbase is a joke compared to most traditional powerhouse programs. They don't generate serious revenue compared to most top schools. Watch a USC in conf night game, they can't fill their stadium. Most people that live in Southern Cal, have better things to do than watch college kids play football.  FSU was so blatant that it couldn't be covered up anymore. 

The SEC and ESPiN work hand in hand to promote themselves to make more money. ESPiN hates the B1G becuase we sought our own television network. ESPiN then took the top conference available and basically said, hey you don't need your own network, We'll be your network....wink wink. Hence the biased bullshit and national title matchup.

Sgt.- This is still one of the funniest things I have ever seen or heard. I love it.

I live in Tennessee and UT fans here are torn between still blaming Lane Kiffin for leaving after a year and leaving such a mess behind, and wanting to get rid of Dooley for not making an progress with the team since he's been there. Last year was an all time low for them, they lost to Kentucky for the first time since the 1980's and Uk was playing a WR at QB in the game.

I would think this GPA news is not gonna help Dooley's cause at Tennessee.

Now we know why S-E-C is incessantly chanted at games- not to rub their glory into the opponents face, but to teach the players how to spell S-E-C.

We should strive to keep thy name, of fair repute and spotless fame...
