Default SBNation Article: Meet the Bag Man

"How to buy college football players, in the words of a man who delivers the money."

Really interesting interview with a bag man from an SEC team. I guess we know where all of those "insider sources" come from.

Read this earlier, and it's a great article. Sounds like an Auburn guy based on the clues. Small southern town, new coach, last coach was a yankee who boosters didn't particularly like. Could be wrong, of course, but seemed to be the best inference from the few specifics mentioned.

Little skeptical. How does a writer even find out who the bagman is? What does a bagman have to gain from this.

Lol um, that's false.

I Like How The Author Capitolized Each Word In The Title but lost interest in doing so as he progressed.

My guess would be Florida, then? Meyer was from Ohio. Possibly Arkansas, since their "interim" coach was from Michigan... I think.

Really good read. I have no doubt this happens at most, if not all, big time programs (ours included). Just some schools do it on a larger scale. With the stakes so high and so much money involved in college football it's silly to think this doen't go on.

I would guess LSU, Bama, or more likely Auburn. The kids being bid on are going to be the better kids, the better kids are going to lead to higher team recruiting rankings for teams. The teams ranked highest year in and year out are Bama, Auburn, LSU, etc. Then you have Tennesse's class last year and Missippi's a few years ago. You can't tell me some of those kids weren't bought.

Everyone's doing it for sure just not eveyone is doing it as well as say Auburn
