Really, what would college football be without the little white lies, half-truths, boldface lies, and misdirection of coaches? — A lot less fun. After all, this is footballrumormill.com.

Auburn fans are quickly losing their God given right to make fun of Bammers for inflating the number of national titles they’ve won.
That didn’t stop ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt from doing it though. Check out SVP’s joking barbs at the Tide during U.S. Open coverage.
