    You know what would make StingTalk explode? If the NCAA violations really were about Dede and the NCAA cites the oh **** thread as the initial source.

    Re: Official GT Under Investigation Thread

    i think you were trying to preemptively stop 50 different threads about the same thing. but of course you failed in pleasing the lords of stingtalk because you forgot the fundamental rule

    you can never please the lords of stingtalk

    next time if you don't start one i'll complain about how you failed us by not starting an official thread

    Could this be an announcement that we are officially in the clear in regards to our last disciplinary action (wishing in one hand here)?

    An anonymous source known only by the codename "Walrus" was instrumental to the case.

    Per the Hive Insider .... I can, however, confirm that this press conference is in regards to agent activity during the 2009 season.

    Explode isn't the right word. Imagine every smallest portion of the matter that makes up every member, every server, every computer, every cable.. all collapsing together into a singularity before immediately erupting into an explosion that doesn't have the same mass as the original Big Bang but contains more than enough lulz to make up the difference. Every plane of existence, every dimension and all things that ever were, are and would be will instantly be devoured in a wicked nightmare of sounds and colors for which we have not yet begun to develop the mind capable of comprehending.

    In short, the universe will go ham.

    NCAA's investigating one of the games last year where some Tech players were doing homework during the game because their professor told them that he simply doesn't care.

    1) Could be secondary violations, but if it is, I would've expected the GT press office to make sure that's clear from the get-go

    2) If these are serious allegations (agents, etc), we're dead in the water. Because we would've heard about the investigation on one of the message boards if the compliance office and AA were doing their job. If we hear about problems and didn't even know they existed, we are screwed. Add that to the repeate offender for any violations prior to Nov. 2010, and we might as well hang up the cleats and take up soccer.

    3) Best case it is follow-up to our academic issues.

    4) Dede?

    If it is agent stuff, I don't know how we survive this.
