Although NCAA rules (Bylaw 13.10.6) bar the introduction of visiting student-athletes during any function, videos of the event posted on two Web sites show the crowd cheering as the players are introduced by name, position and hometown. The man yelling the introductions does not appear on the videos, but assistant head coach Trooper Taylor is shown leading the crowd in cheers immediately after the introductions.
Introduction of student-athletes would be a secondary violation and would not affect the athletes’ eligibility.
NCAA Bylaw 13.10.5 prevents schools from publicizing an athlete’s visit or allowing the visitor to “participate in team activities that would make the public or media aware of the prospective student-athlete’s visit to the institution (e.g., running out of the tunnel with team, celebratory walks to or around the stadium/arena, on-field pregame celebrations).”
This can’t happen…Auburn can’t be allowed to do this…how many recruits were there? Well guess what, we did…and we’re about to own the state again come November. Spin your propaganda all you want bama media machine, your about to be SOL (Thanks Lache). Bottom line, everyone is talking about Auburn (again) for the second time in the offseason, get off our jock bama.
