NCAA Calls Out Sheridan's 'Vague, Unsubstantiated Claims'

This is getting sad and laughable. Danny Sheridan, a USA Today odds-maker who alledgely knows the "Bag Man" that paid Cecil Newton for his son's services at Auburn, met with NCAA investigators to tell his side of the story. Let's say it didn't end to well for him. 

The NCAA just released a statement putting even more holes in Sheridan's claims. 

Danny Sheridan continues to make vague, unsubstantiated claims without backing them up with proof. Contrary to his claims of having an inside source with details on the Auburn investigation, the NCAA has not provided information to Sheridan or anyone else. As a matter of due diligence, the NCAA spoke with Sheridan this week to determine if he had any facts pertaining to the investigation. Sheridan, however, did not provide any information to the enforcement staff and certainly did not provide a name. Instead, he unsuccessfully attempted to gather information for his own use.

Sheridan continued to stretch his 15 minutes of fame as he joined Paul Finebaum on Outside The Lines Daily today. More of the same. "I know the Bag Man"..."I can't release the name." 

Sheridan, please go the way of Scott Moore and don't bother us again.
