SEC: Potential football scandal at Auburn

Some SEC links for Thursday:

* A potential scandal has hit the Plains again. Selena Roberts, former New York Times and Sports Illustrated writer and an Auburn grad, reports on her website that the school changed grades to keep players eligible and players received money to stay in school under Gene Chizik’s watch. Auburn is denying the report, of course. Here’s a Q&A with Roberts, as well.

* Georgia basketball is awaiting word on two key situations. One involves SEC Player of the Year Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who has yet to decide whether to enter the NBA draft. The other involves Tony Parker, the Georgia native who is contemplating transferring from UCLA after the school fired Ben Howland.

* Marshall Henderson wrote a letter to Ole Miss saying he was coming back next season and apologizing for some of his behavior last season.

* John Adams of the Knoxville News-Sentinel writes that the Louisville women taught Tennessee a big-game lesson. That seems unusual for the Lady Vols, who did reach the Elite Eight in the first year of the post-Pat Summitt Era.

* A Vanderbilt football assistant coach isn’t letting an injury┬ákeep him from spring drills.

* It’s never too early for Mr. SEC to take a look at football commitments for 2014.
