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. 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.
The tone of the statement caught us off guard. Maybe the NCAA releases clearly-annoyed statements like this all the time that we never hear about...or maybe Sheridan just pissed them off that much. We have no idea why Sheridan keeps acting like he has this great inside information, all the while making it harder and harder to believe he actually has that information. Even if he just feels like messing with everyone, we're not sure why he'd want to do that, either. Whatever his motivation, though, he's doing it well. We're also not sure why the NCAA's statement took the tone it did, but then again: what's a troll without the ability to produce unnecessary anger?
