With the HBO Real Sports special set to air in just a few hours, the SEC issued a statement on the roles of the Auburn Tigers and LSU Tigers (but mainly Auburn Tigers) in the report on money in college football. The conference is aware, and has ensured both schools have been in touch with the NCAA. I’d also prefer a serial comma in that second sentence:
We are aware of some of the information to be aired during this evening’s HBO Real Sports. Representatives from Auburn University, representatives from LSU and the SEC office have communicated with the NCAA Enforcement Staff. The involved institutions and the NCAA staff will pursue the allegations in a timely manner.
The special will run on HBO at 10 pm ET Wednesday night, and then frequently after that. If you’d like a sneak peek of the damage coming Auburn’s way, click here.
