"The IOC and FIFA have learnt a great deal from each other," he said, also noting their collaboration within the Olympic Movement on "a number of important issues around the world all for the betterment of sport".
Will any of us forget that USC destroyed Oklahoma in the championship or that Auburn was an undefeated SEC team that didn't get a chance to play for a title. I'll leave the playoff discussion for another day (I will go off for hours).
In the same situation, would you be okay with your school winning a title with "ineligible" players and having said title revoked years later. Would you be ashamed or still proud. Would you try to justify it somehow. I honestly don't think I would care, 20 years from now, I think people will remember the title more than the scandal.
It will be interesting listening to Auburn people talk about how they should be awarded the 2004 title now in the same sentence they defend Cam as being eligible. Can't we all agree that Auburn will be going through this exact same thing in the next 5-8 years.
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Herschel got paid but I don't really care, we won a title and should have won 2 others. Look in mirror and join me saying, "win a title at all cost".........hey, I'm just being honest.
