First, it was Mark Ingram. Then Ingram left for the New Orleans Saints via a first round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
They moved on to Trent Richardson, taking pictures of cars, driving by his house and generally creeping everyone out.
Now that Richardson has left for the Cleveland Browns via a first round pick in the 2012 Draft, Auburn fans need a new target.
Auburn fans like stalking bammers, for some weird reason or another.
Before all of this was Operation Red Dog. Before Operation Red Dog, there was Stump Thrower bribing former Alabama football player Gene Jelks to make up pay-for-play allegations in the 1990’s. This goes way back, sports fans. Nutty Auburn fans have been trying to entrap Alabama players since before McCarron was a twinkle in his daddy’s eye.
Never mind that Alabama’s compliance department has a solid policy for documenting vehicles driven by student-athletes. If a Bama kid is driving a decent car and wearing decent clothes, it must be an NCAA violation, or something.
