Title: Auburn cheating?
Post by: MAGA45 on January 30, 2018, 10:33:18 pm
Is Auburn cheating?  How do they have a team on the brink of being in the top 10 in that historically bad program with little fan support?  We have 18k coming to every home game as of late for the product we have after 7 years of building.

I heard commentators saying last year when Auburn was no good that their roster was filled with numerous 5-Star and 4-Star players... a whole roster full of them. But it’s like nobody was noticing last year what they were about to become.

It all starts and ends with recruiting.  Same as in football. If you get a roster full of 4 and 5 star players, you’ll be a contender. If you get the “diamonds in the rough” that you can coach up over the years, you’ll be competitive but you won’t be a threat to ever win a championship. That goes for football as well.  You’ve got to have the studs. You’ve got to have a roster full of Top 100 players. And with the incoming talent over the next several years, it looks like we could have a roster full of top 100 players, especially if that 2020 class decides to put Arkansas back on the map again in the basketball world. #ColdHardTruth

Of course they are. Didn't they lose an assistant before the year started bc of FBI investigation? And Pearl is said to not be cooperating with FBI now.

Well they had an assistant coach indicted for fraud and bribery....so I would speculate there is a chance something under the table is going on. It will be funny if they have this great season and right before the NCAA tourney it all blows up.

This is largely the exact same team that went 18-14 last year.  Only differences are they lost something of a locker room cancer in TJ Dunans to graduation, lost two of their best players to the FBI situation, and added a couple of decent graduate transfers.  One of them has worked his way into the starting lineup because he's a tenacious rebounder and is more physical.  So it's not like they got this sudden influx of talent.  The same players are just playing better.  There's more unselfish play on offense, more commitment to playing defense and rebounding, our free throw percentage has improved dramatically and we aren't taking terrible shots early in the shot clock.  Not sure how you can cheat your way to playing harder and more together.

It's all about the quality of coaching.  Quality of coaching isn't talked about much around here.

It is not like it hasn't happened to them before. What was that kid's name? Was it Chris Porter?

Its a shame that Auburn cheats so much.  Its so bad that its become a national joke like A&M used to be.  How many sports and how many times does it take for the NCAA to acutally do something that matters.  We need more death penalties, notice how SMU hasnt been caught cheating again.

Lol. So true. The FBI certainly thinks they are/were cheating. As soon as the task force packs up and leaves, they will be back to dealing from the bottom of the deck. Cheating is one of their strongest skill sets.
