NBC’s Andrea Kremer, on loan to HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, joined PFT Live on Monday to discuss her recent report regarding four Auburn players who contend that they received money to go to and/or to stay at the school.
She shared some new details regarding a weekend conversation with former Auburn defensive end Stanley McClover, who declined to name names when interviewed by the NCAA.
Andrea also responded to criticism of the men who came forward, including comments from former Auburn and current Saints fullback Heath Evans on Friday’s edition of The Dan Patrick Show. Though she has no need to defend her report, the stuff she told us today makes the report even stronger.
And it’s not an Auburn issue. It’s a problem that the NCAA generally must confront.
The only problem? The NCAA doesn’t seem to be very interested in confronting it.
If the media continues to strike gold regarding the dollars that have changed hands, the NCAA will have no choice.
You can watch the full segment below. And you can catch Andrea’s full report on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT tonight, at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT Wednesday, and via HBO On Demand through April 25.
