Fletcher Cox and Chad Bumphis Named in Yahoo! Report Citing Impermissible Benefits

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

Charles Robinson at it again.

Rand Getlin and Charles Robinson of Yahoo! sports released a investigative piece Wednesday afternoon that included five SEC players, saying they received impermissible benefits from NFL agents while they were still enrolled in school. Fletcher Cox and Chad Bumphis were among the five including players from Alabama and Tennessee.

The allegations surrounding Cox and Bumphis feature airfare that was purchased for them in the amount of $1,259.20. The flights took place shortly after MSU won the Music City Bowl over Wake Forest.

I'll be honest, I didn't read the whole story. I just skimmed it and that was it. I'm a bit disillusioned to cheating, the NCAA, but most of all our compliance department that seems to be the only ones playing by the rules, putting MSU at a competitive disadvantage.

We'll see if anything comes of this. Maybe since the big boys are tied into this with us Slive will work his magic touch. MSU has already hired the lawyer they used during the Will Redmond and Renardo Sidney case. I didn't feel as though those cases turned out too well for us so I'm not sure why we keep going back, but whatever.
