This does not look good for Auburn basketball. Complaint alleges Person accepted bribe to steer player to agent, then gave player $$$

Unfortunately for some, we are getting ready to see the difference between an NCAA investigation and an FBI investigation.

Auburn president on Chuck Person arrest: 'This was an isolated individual'


Quote
Auburn president Steven Leath said in a statement Tuesday that the university was "saddened, angry and disappointed" in associate head basketball coach Chuck Person in wake of his arrest by the FBI and the allegations leveled against the former Auburn great.

Leath was shocked by the revelation but found relief in the fact that the university was not implicated and is not a target of the investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.

"I think it says clearly that they don't think there's some structural problem or some broader problem at the university, that this was an isolated individual," Leath told ESPN. "I don't think anybody else knew. I don't think there's any indication at Auburn that anybody else knew about this."

The apologists and sycophants out there never cease to amaze me. Shoot the messengers all you want, Bruce was hung out to dry.

Pearl: Auburn's defense 'must improve' after 1st scrimmage


Quote
eam went "best-on-best" right out of the gate. During the first five minutes of action, the score was 23-9. While Pearl was pleased with the offense from the one side, he described the defense that allowed 23 points that quick as "awful."

"So which is it?" Pearl wondered Monday. "It's probably a combination of both.... I think it's an area that must improve or change. We're not going to wave a magic wand and have it change in five days. We're on it."

Defense, particularly in transition, was one of Auburn's biggest issues last season. The Tigers allowed 79.6 points per game last year, which was 321st of 347 Division I teams. Auburn was 145th in points allowed per 100 possessions with 103.3, according to KenPom's adjusted deficiency rankings. It was the highest allowed during Pearl's tenure at Auburn.

Pearl looks to change those stats, among others on the defensive end, this season. The fourth-year Auburn coach has taken it upon himself throughout the offseason to be more involved in the defensive scheme and take on more responsibility on that side of the court. Still, he has had to find a delicate balance between working to improve the defense while maintaining his focus as the team's offensive coordinator.
