Auburn must retain and strengthen this flight program! It's a shame to see such a lack of leadership within the COB and from the President's office.

Typical responses from Selena. She's been an attention hound since her own days at the Plainsman in the early 80's. Also very typical of her to take the side of the actual criminal in a criminal case, very much like her "work" on the Duke Lacrosse hoax. Once again, Selena goes about indulging her well-established hatred of male sports with unsupported rumors and innuendo in place of actual facts. More of the same from her. You'd think after being fired by two of the (alleged) top publications in the country of these antics, somebody in the national media would actually start questioning the shattered shreds of her credibility by now. But that would detract from bashing Auburn, so as Emily Litella would have said (look it up, kids), "Never mind!"

Good grief this was a simple beat up the reporter piece with nasty slants to the questions. "How do you feel about blemishing the Auburn name", "Did you approach this to HELP McNeil" the questioner comes across as a provincial don't look for dirt in our beloved football program which gives us reason to go on. She's an investigative reporter not Florence Nightingale come to hold a disgraced student athlete's hand. She can't blemish the Auburn name, it's the people involved in committing the crimes, making illegal payments that blemish the school, not the person who exposes the filth. All I want to know is who was the jackaxx that would hire a deeply flawed Iowa State coach, give him a new contract with huge bucks that are wasted now. Now just who was going to grab Gene'o and take him away

To let you all know where I sit on this, I am not an Auburn fan and believed there was serious funny business going on during the national championship season. That being said, anybody who ever believes a word of what Selena Roberts writes is taking a real chance. I believe that she writes fiction (as was the case in her reporting about the Duke lacrosse case) and makes things up out of whole cloth (as was the case when she attempted to cast herself as somebody who was very skeptical of the case against the Duke lacrosse players). I wouldn't put any credence into anything in the article until a reputable journalist begins to report it.

True. But I bet they had to write it and get it out ASAP.

"We would like to see our relationship with the Bammers take a more civil tone, but we’re not holding our breath." "We can only laugh at the behavior of a fanatic for so long until we realize we might just be laughing at ourselves. After all, the rivalry between Auburn and Alabama is all about proving who is better, but in that pursuit we lose what makes us great schools and football fans in the first place. Instead we all turn into Updykes." Those statements are very ironic. By your own definition, you are Updykes too!

It is disappointing to see a university not question the wisdom of an industry insider to speak of our food production and quality issues. The issues of Monsanto's practices are numerous and in many instances troubling. Coupled with the idiotic court ruling allowing the patenting of life, we have fewer and fewer companies creating a larger monoculture in farming; a bad situation from many perspectives. As to the health issues, how can we know when most testing is done by the industry and rubber stamped by the FDA. A good counter point for consideration would be the book "The World According to Monsanto" by Marie-Monique Robin.
