    No, and you know he didn't just stop once he got to LSU.

    He is dirty, but the NCAA has shown time and time again that nothing will happen.

    Well it is out in the open now and it seems like there is no way around it, you would think they'd be forced to do something this time.

    There's no proof. What are they going to do?

    These days you pretty much need a check, signed by a coach, with the words "paying player to come play for us" written on the check, to get in trouble.

    It's the wild west. I am sure the SEC has rampant cheating going on which is the main cause of esophageal spasms I hear.

    Proof...8 former players admitting they were paid.

    Ncaa will figure out a way to do nothing about it .

    Not new to it, but who came out to speak against Manziel? Miami is just another story, how they're dragging their feet on that one is beyond me.

    If they want this stuff to end start lifetime banning coaches who are involved in addition to the schools punishment.

    The slow-moving NCAA just let Miami beat us with ineligible senior and redshirt junior players paid by Nevin Shapiro when they were freshmen. When is the hammer going to fall, and when do we get awarded a forfeit victory to erase that injustice we saw on Saturday?

    At this point I'd be shocked if there wasn't a top-tier college football program that didn't dabble in money, sex or drugs at some point during their reign of success.

    Wasn't current NCAA President Mark Emmert at LSU when Miles was hired from Ok State? I know it was close. Either way they won't do crap. The NCAA has no subpoena power and very little recourse to deal with liars. Bruce Pearl's mistake wasn't lying - why not lie? It was allowing photographic evidence of a violation to be taken in his house. They are not a court of law but still act like their proof has to be beyond a reasonable doubt to administer punishment to anyone and of course, conflicts of interest abound such as with Emmert.

    Since it's beyond the statute of limitations, there's nothing the NCAA can do to Les, unless they find it has continued at LSU. However, at Okie St. it is alleged to have continued until 2011, so we shall see. NCAA is taking so long to handle the scUM situation that the statute of limitations will run out before they make a decision. Before someone takes this last statement seriously, I'm kidding, maybe.

    No kidding...so is every other Top50 college program paying players. Do you think these coaches make millions by reinventing football with marginal players that don't take money? Of course not, you make millions by getting the best players...and that costs money.
