why are people harping on the auburn football players when most that received grades weren't players?
the faculty should be punished,not the student athletes who had such a wonderful season.The fact they didnt get a shot at usc was enough,when you win the sec with such dominance you deserve a shot.

It is the department that has been punished. Those responsible have been demoted and there may be more to come. And AU didn't have what it took this year. Where they a great team? Yes. Where they the same dominant team as last year? No. You're right, they got the job last year, but not this year. And, it does matter that players weren't academically disqualified when they should have been. Everyone cheats, especially in the SEC and the other big conferences, but AU's cheating was more blatant and rampant. Yes, the majority weren't football players, but the majority of starters just got too many favors and no education.Source(s): grad alum

auburn sucks. they didn't need a shot at usc because everyone knows they would've lost. LSU should've gotten a shot. they're ranked higher than auburn. and auburn didn't have dominance.
