A story published Wednesday by online media company roopstigo accuses Auburn University of fixing grades and paying players on the team that beat the University of Oregon for the 2010 BCS national championship.
The story by Selena Roberts said Auburn football created an atmosphere of arrogance that resulted in the school covering up violations during the tenure of former coach Gene Chizik.
Roberts reported that as many as nine players might have been academically ineligible for the bowl game and cited one specific instance of a grade being changed from an F to C for a star player.
Another player, receiver Darvin Adams, said he was offered cash not to turn pro. McNeil and Blanc said in the story that Adams was offered thousands.
Adams refused the money and went undrafted, in part, he told Roberts, because Auburn coaches spoke poorly of him to NFL scouts. He now plays in the Canadian Football League.
Of course, they're in the SEC, so i'm sure nothing will be done about any of this.
