Has the worm turned on the SEC?

Recently, the SEC has seen their defending champions have a top shelf DL suspended, South Carolina has lost their stud TE indefinitely and we've seen arguably the best WR in the nation suspended for 4 games.  You can also count, geographically speaking, half of UNC's student body under investigation.  Now this: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/mensbasketball/sec/2010-09-10-tennessee-ncaa-investigation_N.htm.  Basketball implications for UT aside, the relevant (read: football-related) news is in the 11th paragraph. 

Maybe it's me but when the NCAA starts investigating your 2 flagship programs and then just lumps in all the rest, it's not a far jump to the dreaded "lack of institutional control" tag.  Perhaps this is why we haven't heard much rumbling about the hookers "hostesses" employed by "unknown to" Lane Kiffin that visited the recruits at their high school games or the cover up "internal handling" of the bar brawl.  Perhaps the biggest axe has yet to fall.

The larger question may be, "Is this the result of the NCAA investigators without a leader, or is the Mark Emmert era going to be the Stalin to Brand's Lenin?"  Frightening possibility.
