AU is on probation? What a crock!

Auburn University is on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). This is the association that gives the school accreditation. The same organization that gives The University of Alabama and most other schools in the southeast accreditation.

I believe OU gets its accreditation form the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. This is very serious and could cost AU and the state of Alabama a lot of money.

Their probation stems from a few boosters and Board of Trustee members being too consumed with their football program.

I am surprised the NCAA would even let them compete for the national championship considering the circumstances.

Links please, I thought Alabama was on probation, not Auburn. This is news to me.
