Bama hates the Barn



Via email:

While I hate to sound like a spoiled-sport, the facts are what they are – the BCS hasn’t said a word, not a single word, regarding the investigation of Auburn – I believe it is due to a couple of things –
1. The criminal case against Milton McGregor and Ronnie Gilley hasn’t been deposed yet, the case hasn’t even made it to court, but evidence of wrongdoing within the SEC has clearly implicated Auburn going all the way back to the days of Pat Dye in the mid-80’s. That said, the Cam Newton scandal is barely the tip of the ice burg, which brings us to the 2nd reason nothing has been said or done yet – money! The BCS would have lost millions if this had already been released and investigated, and everything hinges on the evidence collected by the FBI so far – since we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, I will refrain from saying much more, except a great deal of this information is available on-line and verified by more than one source.

While I am an admitted Alabama fan, I also hold anyone from the SEC up, and really want to be glad a school from Alabama gained the championship title… but given Newton’s criminal background, (convicted felon), and the message that sends to our children, and the depth of the damning evidence so far released, I am having an extremely difficult time feeling good about this particular outcome.
For now, all I want to say is I hope the evidence is wrong – it will be a real tragedy for all Alabamians if this thing turns out to be true.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.

  1. What felony was Cam Newton convicted of? I am pretty sure he was charged with a felony but never convicted. I may have my facts wrong because I am an Auburn fan and biased.

  2. Dan, that is a real rant from a real Bammeroid. I copied and pasted it. Amazing isn’t it?

  3. The only felony Cam is guilty of is ripping out Bammeroid hearts and pissing on them while flashing that incredibly goofy ear to ear grin…

  4. Dude the Gumps are going ape shit over this!!! A shout out to the Bear!! Roll Bitch Roll!!!

  5. Cam is a symptom. Pat Dye and his cronies (including the new coaches) are the disease. Better have them surgically removed before they lay waste to the entire program.
