Report: Five SEC Players Received Extra Benefits, Violated NCAA Rules

mrsec-breaking-newsAccording to an investigation by Yahoo Sports, four former and one current SEC player violated NCAA rules by receiving extra benefits.  Yahoo says the recipients of those benefits were:

- Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker

- Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray

- Tennessee defensive lineman Maurice Couch

- Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox

- Mississippi State wide receiver Chad Bumphis

Fluker, Bray and Cox are now in the NFL. Bumphis was recently released by Miami.  Couch is a senior at Tennessee.

Yahoo says identities of the player were revealed from financial and text message records belonging to former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis. A source alleges Davis was acting as an intermediary between college players and multiple NFL agents and financial advisors.

Yahoo found financial records, including Western Union wire transfers and flight receipts, linking Davis to the five SEC players. All told, Yahoo says records show agents and financial advisers moved at least $45,550 to Davis between September 2011 and December 2012.

For D.J. Fluker – Yahoo Sports authenticated multiple transactions tying Fluker to Davis and others, including cash transfers, hotel stays, furniture, airline flights and other expenses.

For Tyler Bray and Maurice Couch – Yahoo authenticated six transactions – all were cash transfers.

For Fletcher Cox and Chad Bumphis – Yahoo authenticated airfare purchases.

If proven by the NCAA, the organization could retroactively nullify a portion of each player’s eligibility.

What the heck is wrong with SI and Yahoo with these reports based upon evidence with actual documentation, multiple named sources and a money trail? Don't these guys know that they will never become an ESPN investigative reporter doing all that silly stuff like following leads and doing background checks on sources. Like Rovell will tell you, don't let facts get in the way of a good story.
