I live in SEC country, and the most common refrain tha I hear, even before this came out, is that everyone pays players and everyone cheats. Shoot, I even heard one Tennessee fan say the problem under Dooley was that they might not have been paying players, so they couldn't get the talent to compete (that plushis terrible coaching, of course). So my question is: what are the general thoughts of fellow Michigan fans regarding the likelihood of us cheating? I mean, have I just been drinking the koolaid in adamently defending Michigan's program as a clean one that does not cheat? They claim that I am being naive in my insisting that the culture at Michigan is different than in the SEC, and cheating would not be tolerated. However, I just wanted to make sure that I am not just a homer (by asking a bunch of other homers) in my refusal to believe that we pay our players.
at least it's not just us?
