NCAA Says Danny Sheridan Shameless Self-Promoter; No One Surprised

Cam Newton is definitely allowed to make money now. Danny Sheridan apparently doesn't really know if he improperly made money last year.

There are times when you would just like to be a fly on the wall. The NCAA's meeting with Danny Sheridan was one of those times.

As a matter of due diligence, the NCAA spoke with Sheridan this week to determine if he had any facts pertaining to the investigation. Sheridan, however, did not provide any information to the enforcement staff and certainly did not provide a name. Instead, he unsuccessfully attempted to gather information for his own use.

Aside from giving us all some comic relief by picturing that ridiculous scene, the NCAA essentially said that Sheridan was a shameless self-promoter and full of it. Not in those words, of course; the NCAA is too courtly to actually say that. But, you know, they were thinking it.

Danny Sheridan continues to make vague, unsubstantiated claims without backing them up with proof. Contrary to his claims of having an inside source with details on the Auburn investigation, the NCAA has not provided information to Sheridan or anyone else.

It's not clear if this is positive or neutral news for Auburn fans, though it's almost certainly not bad news. It confirms that the Auburn investigation is still going on, but we already knew that, so that's not anything more for Auburn fans to worry about.

But if Sheridan doesn't know what he's talking about, it calls into question his entire bagman story, whether it's true or not. That doesn't mean there's not a bagman out there, just that Sheridan's claims that there is and that he knows the name are probably not worth the airtime that Paul Finebaum devoted to them.

Danny Sheridan is unlikely to clear any of that up by himself. Unless, of course, you're willing to tell him what you know about the investigation or give him a way to extend his fifteen minutes of fame.
