More OSU "news" soon?

I have a friend who is a ND alum and who lives in Columbus. He said there is some local chatter about something coming out about a housing scandal. He has no inside info, but it seemed to fit with Spielman's recent statement that more might be coming out. This is just a rumor at this point and may turn out to be nothing, but I thought I would share what I have heard.

Hopefully, when our grandchildren (wearing 2062 Michigan Rose Bowl championship sweatshirts) talk back about the dark streak of OSU losses that have marred the last decade, they will speak of it as at least in part a product of OSU's blantantly dishonest booster culture.

I have a quick question. Wasn't Yahoo Sports suppose to be releasing another story about a major program. Did that not happen yet, or did the landslide coming out in Columbus over shadow it.

My recollection is that it's a "Top 12" program in the Midwest that otherwise has a squeaky clean reputation.  So I think that OSU is out of the picture when it comes to the "10 out of 10" story. 

My candidates are (in order of likelihood...)

1.  Iowa

2.  MSU

3.  Wiscy

4.  Missourah

I would agree that Iowa should be at the top of the list. Given all the drug-related problems last year, it would not be surprising to learn that some players were selling drugs to finance their "lifestyles" similar to the way some of OSU's players were selling autographs and memorabilia.

After that, I would guess Oklahoma, MSU and Oklahoma State. PSU obviously fits as well, but I would be shocked (and devastated) if it's them. I hope it's not.

The allegations of drug use, etc., within the Iowa program would have given every half-wit journalist a great big target to shoot at. Yahoo! Sports seems to be pretty good at the investigative stuff. I'm sure they were licking their chops at the thought of going after that story.

If it comes out that Auburn was funneling money to kids through rigged slot machines I will laugh for 3 straight days.

The only thing about that situation is the possibility of Auburn losing accreditation with Board of Regents involvement, which wouldn't be quite as funny because what do you do with the students etc.

Still pretty great overall though.
