Auburn Community Reacts To HBO's Reports Of Illegal Benefits

A rocky season in the public arena for the Auburn Football Tigers will be thrown into sharp relief Wednesday night, as HBO airs a Real Sports episode dedicated to college athletics and featuring a story on illegal benefits allegedly provided to four former players during the reign of Tommy Tuberville. As you might imagine, the Auburn community is in a bit of a tizzy over the revelations to be broadcast this evening.

SB Nation's Track Em Tigers obtained an advance review copy of the episode, and says, "It's a scathing report that whether true or not, will deliver a huge black eye to the Auburn program," while cautioning, "It's important to note that throughout the report there was never any proof presented of these allegations." While it takes only two comments for the sour grapes conspiracy theorists to emerge, a quick (though unscientific) poll of our Auburn community paints an interesting picture of where fans are landing on the credulity scale:

Real Sports airs at 10:00 p.m. EDT on HBO. Don't miss the roundtable panel with Billy Packer, Rich Rodriguez, and Jason Whitlock. There will be lots of shouting, we imagine.
