    So who checked it? The local bank?

    Seems like even the appearance of players accepting it would be a serious violation with NCAA.

    If it was real it's a problem. If it was fake get the hell over yourself.

    This is the thing I (dont) love about you, IDE. This is your schtick....no one should ever apply good, sound judgement to anything or anyone else's actions or they are being holier than thou or judgemental ...so we all get lowered a little bit by degrees...just accepting any kind of behavior in the name of making sure no one is being too high and mighty.
    The irony is, I've found most people like this are people who just want their free pass to sin and do whatever they want and dont want anyone telling them they cant or shouldn't so they cant stand it when anyone else calls anybody out on anything, ever. Most of these people have a problem with God but direct their criticisms to man...copout.
    You've always wanted your moral standard applied around here but everyone else's standard is wrong or high and mighty.
    I dont know who you were responding to but that schtick is so old and tired.
    I like plenty about you, your mind, and your views....been agreeing an aweful lot w you lately. But you're the same guy who got all bent out of shape when the subject of Herman and strip clubs came up and some of us didnt like it.
    Let me make this real clear.....If a person is so confident and has clear conscience with his or her actions then they shouldnt be very affected by another person's criticism or disagreement with them. And you sure shouldn't either when its not even you being talked about. Life experience tells me most people who are offended are only offended due to their shame or unwillingness to acknowledge the issue... not by the person who is "being so judgemental". If I am confident and have clear conscience about my behavior then there is no reason to be offended by anyone who criticizes.
    This is how we got in the mess we are in as a people. We use to challenge each other, hold each other to a standard...now this crap...Don't say anything about anyone or anything ever or you are like..this or that. So we all get a little lower.
    OBJ can do whatever he wants..so can you. And I can believe and state my views on it. ....But what we really should be working towards together is what is truth. ...not what makes everybody feel good about themselves. Almost every single great gain I've had in life has come from the humility it requires to hear good sound judgement and reason from persons critiquing my behavior.
    I stand by what I said whether it is notpopular, non PC or whatever. It was, in my view, classless, thuggish and inappropriate....like alot of other things I've witnessed around that program. I wasnt trying to just single out OBJ and the money thing. If you want to talk about me, IDE.. I'll be glad to tell you about all my sin, shortcomings. failures, and weaknesses. It may take a while...I'll warn you. You'll have to tell me about my blindspots, though...and I will gladly listen. I'm not too high and mighty to. Trust me. But are you??

    It's the SEC and no less than LSU, which is one of the least honest programs in the NCAA

    I know ESPN is not going to mention it but an LSU booster got 33 months from the feds this summer for looting a charity and spending the money on, among other things, $180k or so on a lineman's daddy. The NCAA has the matter under consideration.

    The LSU basketball coach has similar problems and the FBI wiretapped him and so it is hard to see how that gets kept at under advisement by LSU or the NCAA

    So if the colorful Mr. BJ is passing out money to players it should not come as any surprise.

    It's Louisiana, the crooked half brother of east Texas.

    Different situations call for different responses. I don't consider strip joints offensive or immoral. Anyone who does doesn't have to go. The passing out of monopoly money strikes me as harmless. I'm not defending anything that causes physical harm or severe emotional distress. I mean christ on a pony...

    Glad to see it wasn’t real. Can’t imagine doing that with real cash then opening my front door to come face to face with a pissed off Coach O.

    my question remains...if he handed real money out to seniors or those declaring early, does it matter to the NCAA?

    IDE...I, nor anyone else here whose ever taken offense or been bothered by anything you've posted would ever respond to you critically over your reason or opinions...Its the harsh and indicting tone with which you "attack" (maybe too strong a word) those who have their own views and opinions, especially on subjects related to morality or judgement or what is good or appropriate or whatever.
    That's all. You accuse them (or me or whoever) as being the very thing you're acting like by the way you come across. I would say you're playing "God" while accusing someone else of doing it...but, that's not it. You'd never want to do that. I mean, why does it matter and what is truth and you dont even exist anyway, right? But, at the very least, it always seems like you're the (a)moral superior person who's holier than thou.. except..not.
    I'll say this, you can say alot more with fewer words than me. I'll stop.

    If I come across as holier than I apolgize. It's not my intention. I'm among the last who have any business casting the first stone.

    And see there you go being reasonable. This^^^^ is something I really like about you. I was actually just about to post and say I do understand some about what you are saying and reacting to. I do.
    People just use words differently and mean different things. Took my wife and I a long time to figure out what we "mean" when we speak...lol.
    I get that you have a reaction to something you see as wrong just like I do.
    I think the disconnect on this particular subject was I was just mouthing off on something I dont like or respect...not intending to say I hate those people or I'd wish to condemn them to Hell or anything. You think people should be careful with words, especially when aimed at others. We both agree on this, so my apologies to OBJ...and his...posse.

    He was whispering in a player's ear...was it something like "This is monopoly but you'll get the real thing later tonight"

    Monopoly money easily exchangeable at special Bank of LSU.

    Members only, of course.

    I read somewhere that LSU players are given tokens to the gambling joint as a way to get their money.

    The monopoly money to be presented later would prove they were on the field that night and were on the list to get paid.

    Rain and IDE...

    I certainly appreciate Rain's comments yesterday regarding IDE's initial comments but also appreciate IDE's later comment at 2:36 pm regarding the 'stone'. We all should cast ourselves accordingly but sometime we get carried away form who we really are (or supposed to be) and maybe, just maybe we try to impress others the wrong way. Remember many players and parents see these and it probably doesn't faze any of them ....but there is a pretty good chance it may influence some in the wrong way...!! They are all key recruits regardless of the star power.

    If that was fake money, then the FBI needs to pay OBJ a visit. If the NCAA does not pursue this, then we need to start paying everyone we want because their rules don't exist.

    I think it's a free country and forum and we're all allowed our opinions, good and bad. EVERYWHERE there is college football there is passion. I assume that these players/parents get talked to personally EVERY DAY about where they're going to sign, sure wish it was school X, nobody should go to school Y, etc etc. Players and parents should know we all think highly of Texas, want them to come to Texas in a fanatical way (once again, at EVERY MAJOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL PROGRAM IN AMERICA), and, if they don't come to Texas, we may say good luck or good riddance in various ways. Getting offended by this board in any way hardly compares to the realities life brings. Hook 'Em!

    Zucker.....you are correct, we are fanatical about our football and players!!! Sure wish we were on the top.

    I read recently that someone said Texas is not consider one of the elite any longer....I believe Texas is still among the elite. If not we would not be given much consideration by the elite players everyone wants.
