NCAA investigation of Auburn isn't over

If you thought that the NCAA's investigation of Auburn and its recruitment of Cam Newton was over, then it seems you'd be wrong. At least, that's the impression NCAA Vice President of Enforcement Julie Roe Lach gave Auburn head coach Gene Chizik last month. That's when football and basketball coaches from the SEC were in Destin, Florida where Lach made a presentation to the group.

According to a report in the New York Times, after Lach opened up her presentation for discussion, Chizik had quite a few questions for her and then she dropped a bombshell on him.
[Chizik] peppered Roe Lach with a flurry of questions about the N.C.A.A.’s investigation into Cam Newton and why the N.C.A.A. had not publicly announced that the investigation was over. Chizik complained that the inquiry’s open-ended nature had hurt Auburn’s recruiting and he followed up at least three times, leading to a testy exchange.

“You’ll know when we’re finished,” Roe Lach told Chizik, according to several coaches who were at the meeting. “And we’re not finished.”
Well then!

While neither the NCAA or Auburn would confirm the exchange between Chizik and Roe Lach, according to the New York Times report, four fellow SEC basketball coaches -- Vanderbilt's Kevin Stallings, Arkansas' Mike Anderson, LSU's Trent Johnson and Ole Miss' Andy Kennedy -- did confirm the exchange to the paper.

Of course, just because the investigation isn't over, that doesn't mean the NCAA is going to find any new evidence than what it has already and use it to punish Auburn. Still, the fact that the NCAA is still digging around can't be all that comforting for Auburn faithful.

 My argument is it was incomplete because there is nothing there.
If this was true, the investigation would have been over. But as we have all seen, the investigation is NOT over. Come up with whatever conspiracy theory you want, the investigations continue...

GAME ON!!

And for the millionth time, the reason it wasn't in the reinstatement process was because it was incomplete.  My argument is it was incomplete because there is nothing there.  Notice how Ohio State never tried to reinstate Pryor and those guys?  That's because they were staring down the barrell of overwheling evidence.  Auburn isn't dipstick.
NO dumbass..for the millionth time, the reason it wasn't in the reinstatement process is because it's not part of the process. It never is, never was. Again, wether there was zero evidence from and investigation or CAM was caught on tape by the NCAA, it is not part of the proceedings, and would not come up, no one would talk about it at the reinstatement process. What I will say is this...

As for the NOI, unless you are Jay Jacobs, Gene Cheezedic, or Lord Lowder, or another higher up, you have no idea if the NOI has been recieved, Auburn has no burden to make that public. period.


Again, your point is pointless.

So, instead of talking out of your ass, how about put up a link that shows me the evidence, or lack of,  that apparently the NCAA has provided to you and no one else.


Right back at you.  These things seem to move pretty quickly when there is actual evidence and leads to hunt down (see Ohio State).  All we have heard about Auburn's investigation is the same things for the past six months (that it continues).  MEanwhile, Auburn has never even been sent a letter of inquiry and nothing has changed, but you want me to just assume Auburn is guilty of something?

This is why nobody cares for Auburn fans..... you base what to brag about on what you personnally like.  I like crawfish, but I dont brag to others that it is the best food out there.


This doesn't even make sense.  Listen up dipstick.  You entered the room hell bent on proving Auburn was not an elite program and said all we had was football and baseball, and that nobody feared our basketball team.  I then responded by saying that our swimming was good.  That's all that happened.  I never called us an elite sports school.  I never bragged about anything.  I simply pointed out that another program at Auburn is good.

You are a fool.

Yeah cause there is nothing there. 

Proof that they found nothing?

I've made no claims that they found anything. All I have stated is that wether they found anything or not was is irrelevant to the reinstatement of CAM. Whatever information they did or did not find was not introduced to the reinstatement committee because the only thing considered is the information provided by the school, as I have alreay proven to you by SHOWING YOU THE RULES SET BY THE NCAA on this matter.

So, instead of talking out of your ass, how about put up a link that shows me the evidence, or lack of,  that apparently the NCAA has provided to you and no one else.

Spare me the drama.  Because I mentioned the church, rightly or wrongly, does not mean you get to throw out all of my other points.  For the sake of argument, let's completely ignore the church aspect.  Cecil Newton propositioning Mississippi St is enough to warrant investigating any school Cam signed with.


Correct.  And they have.  Auburn has never been sent an official letter of inquiry.

So what? It reanders your point...well..pointless.

Yes, the NCAA was and has been investigating Auburn...yes they had talked to Cecil, Cam, Aubrunf, while doing ther (still ongoing) investigation. The point is that none of that had anything to do with the reinstatemnt of CAM NEWTON as you claim.

I never said you should be worried..I just said you were wrong in your point..and I was right, you are wrong.


Nah it is pretty obvious what you want from this.  Keep dreaming.  Cam was ruled eligible because nothing is there.  You call it incomplete.  I call it mythical.  We will see who wins this argument.

Oh my gosh.  I give up.  There we go with Cecil's church again.  Goodbye folks.

I said "not to brag about swimming" because I don't even like swimming

I still cant believe you are replying to my posts, you are seriously addicted to Auburn. I know a place that can help....
