Considering all the recent transgressions regarding the improper use of memorabilia, I really hope that each Auburn football player received a special note regarding their recent jewelry package -- a reward for their dominant run in the 2010 season.

Players began receiving their commemorative hardware over the weekend and wasted no time showing it off to the world. This photo comes courtesy of offensive lineman Jorrell Bostrom.



Now would be an appropriate time to note that NCAA Legislation Cite 16.1.4.2 says that the total value for any single award received for a national championship may not exceed $415, and the total value of any award for a conference championship may not exceed $325. The hope, obviously, is that most of these rings find their way into safe-keeping. After all, $415 is a small price to pay for a lifetime of getting to end arguments with "Kiss The Ring!"

Actually, gramp's, I was dogging Aubarn to an Aubarn fan, and then slightly defending them to an OSU fan in a later post. Albeit it was a small defense, but none the less a defense. Anyway, don't you have some cows or chickens or something to look after for a school project or something? How is that cow college doin now a days? Do they still mark your diploma on a piece of slate? I heard they done taught ya'll to underline your X now! whoopie
Ya'll might want to hold on down there, this year is going to be a little ruff!

You keep writing like you are trying to convince yourself that what you're saying might be true.

Daaammnn!!!!! You guys got owned by the SEC last year. OSU saved the Big somethings butt, you pulled a squeaker out over Arkansas, I remember that game now, Arkansas beat Arkansas, you guys had nothing to do with it. I mean, damn, did you guys evern win a bowl game last year besides OSU? Mississippi St. dogged Michigan, what was that, oh yeah, 52-14. MSU, were they Big nothing champions or co-champions, hmmm, I don't think it really matters, 49-7 against a 9-3 BAMA. You all need to just play with each other up there and let the boys that know how to play football, play football down here. Draw a big oval from Georiga to Texas, and there's the heart of football! Other than when your little criminal (Clarret) won you a championship, oh wait, you have one to, I bet you were'nt complaining about him when OSU was holding up the trophy, it had been what, 30 somthing years since your last championship?
The SEC has a contract huh? If that's the case and that's why Abarn isn't getting publicly humiliated yet, then explain BAMA getting slamed by the NCAA in the late 90's for stuff they had no control over. Your coach was caught lying, let me say that a little louder, LYING, to the school and the NCAA. What do you think was going to happen? Do you breath without somebody telling you to? Do you lick windows? So you have to have some inteligence. Figure it out.

No that would be USC, how many years did the NCAA let all that crap fly under the radar? USC=media darling, BIG 10, oh wait, big 12 with dumb azz logo and stupid azz hell conference names that still want to call themselves Big 10=NCAA darling. Everything that has gone on at OSU and you're complaining about Aburn and saying they are sweeping it under the rug? The only reason you're so pizzed is because everytime the Big what ever meets the SEC in post season play, we make them look like high school football teams. Once in a while you win one, but overall, you're winning % is horrible.

So go play all those weak azz football teams you have up there to make your self feel better. Just don't come down here, we don't want to hurt your feelings again.
BAMA alone whopped the crap out of two of your best teams last year. What did the rest of the SEC teams do to you last year? I think I'll look it up.

OSU still getting slammed over on ESPN.  And STILL shoving the Cam Newton story under the rug.  It's almost like you have a contract with the SEC or something....   OH WAIT!  YOU DO!    trash
