SEC Responds To HBO Real Sports Auburn Football Special

Ahead of tonight's HBO Real Sports special regarding Auburn football and an alleged pay-for-play scheme, the SEC has released a statement about the program and the information that is to be discussed on the show.

"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."

So, it's your basic issue cookie-cutter statement. "Yes, we know that this is a thing that exists, and we care about it" is essentially what was said, if roughly 60 words is tl;dr for you. When it comes to any serious wrongdoing by the school, the NCAA might be able to come up with some information if shady bookkeeping or a whistle blower is present. However, the now famous "money handshakes" might be little more than one person's word against another.
