Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
Dave was there when I was in school. Good guy.
What a joke.
It would be too absurd for a sitcom. No one would believe it.
If you can't beat em, join em?
We can now call the kettle black.
Aside from knowing the guy personally and what not, does this not make you cringe on some level? This must have sounded like a joke the first time you heard if right?
And I never could figure out the whole Cam Newton thing.............
Absolutely no conflict of interest... Nope, none.
Same crap happens in politics too.
It's actually pretty common, very common in fact, for schools to hire someone to work in compliance who has experience at the national office. That said, Didion has a long history with Auburn. He wanted to come back and they wanted him back.
Didion had issues with former Auburn basketball coach Cliff Ellis. When we left Auburn for the NCAA, he busted Ellis. Didion is a straight shooter. If there's a compliance issue, he will deal with it and self-report.
I'm not passing out judgment, but the NCAA has been on Auburn's campus for three year looking at three separate sets of allegations. They were cleared in the Cam Newton investigation. They were cleared in the HBO 5 investigation. Now they have been cleared in the Memphis transcript investigation. Either there's nothing there or they know what they're doing. Or maybe a little of both.
The latest set of allegations was basically dismissed by NCAA head Mark Emmert:
"I think it's very important to recognize that in that case at Auburn, what that is is a newspaper story. That's it," Emmert said. "We haven't done anything with that case because we don't know anything about it. What we know is what we read in the newspaper."
Dave Didion, a good guy who knows the territory and knows the job, will return to Auburn for a second tour. This time, hell be associate athletic director for compliance.
Emmert surprisingly commented on a question about Auburn in depth, saying the NCAA needs more than a newspaper story.
The eagles are dirty.......as is the ncaa........i'm not shocked they were so in our faces about it.......all dirty

I didn't say that. I worked for him at LSU though.
That's fine. Just stating the truth. And Auburn's mascot is a tiger.
Auburn War Eagles. Everyone knows that.
