Something about a cadillac escalade he got and who payed for it.

Not a smart move on McFadden's part. Why not just wait a week or so? This will bring McFadden's intelligence into question and may hurt his stock in the draft. I like the kid, but this was a dumb move.

Did he just recently receive the Escalade or has it just now been found out about?

Arkansas officials are looking into allegations that running back Darren McFadden received a car from an agent, as the agent and McFadden's father denied the report and the TV station that initially aired the story issued an apology.

The report alleged that McFadden had received a Cadillac Escalade, a luxury SUV, with the help of an agent, Mike Conley.

Graylon McFadden, Darren's father, insisted Friday that the reports were "a bold-faced lie," adding that the car belongs to McFadden's mother. The junior two-time Doak Walker Award winner has been borrowing the car, he said.

Conley, who said he does not represent McFadden and is not a certified football agent, also said the report was untrue. Conley is registered as an agent with the NBA and represents his son, Mike Conley Jr., and Greg Oden, who was the No. 1 overall draft pick in the 2007 NBA draft.

"I got a call and was told that somebody is saying I walked into a dealership in Fayetteville with Darren and helped him purchase a car," said Conley, a former track and field star at Arkansas. "I haven't been in Fayetteville in a while, and I certainly haven't been in any car dealerships with Darren McFadden."

Arkansas, however, is still investigating the allegations, as they could affect McFadden's eligibility for the Cotton Bowl against Missouri. According to NCAA rules, signing with or having improper contact with an agent could affect a player's eligibility.

"We always want to take the higher road in any of these situations, and whether they're rumors or not, let it play out in the arena it needs to be done," Arkansas interim coach Reggie Herring said, according to the Dallas Morning News. "They're going to get to the bottom of it as soon as possible so everybody can rest easy."

Meanwhile, KARK-TV of Little Rock backed off its report, issuing a public apology on its Web site Friday.

It was reported that a sports agent was accused by a Little Rock news station of purchasing a Cadillac Escalade for McFadden.

It was then reported that they retracted the report with an apology to said agent.

I don't know what to believe, especially after ESPN gets ahold of this rumor.

How is this related to the Falcons?

It's not, we're taking a QB.

Hey Bird, how come your avatar doesn't do the slap thing anymore? It is just a picture of stick figures now.

I've noticed that, but it seems all animated avatars have become still frames.
