COACH SAYS THAT THE TEAM HAS NO CONCERNS REGARDING ELIGIBILITY
Fri, 17 Jun 2011 11:26 AM EDT

Coach Gene Chizik said in his latest book that Auburn would probably have never let the successful player Cam Newton play if they had concerns about his eligibility and he described Newton as a star player with a great character and what he said was “incredible focus” who used the football as an escape.

Chizik wrote “We knew we had done nothing wrong during the recruiting process,” “All In: What it Takes to Be the Best.”"If we’d had any level of concern regarding Cameron’s eligibility, we would not have put him on the field and risked forfeiting games for playing an ineligible player,” he wrote.

The APP got an advanced copy of the latest book which was co-written by the Fort Worth Star Telegram columnist named David Thomas and is due out later in July. Chizik devoted a good 2 pages out of the 282 pages he wrote regarding NCAA’s investigation into the recruitment and also described his reluctance to sign up a junior college quarterback despite his assistant coach Curtis Luper urging him.

The fact is that the signing of New Year’s Eve of this new player worked out better than what anybody could predict on field. Newton managed to win the Heisman Trophy and later led the Tigers to a national title prior to becoming the no.1 draft pick by the Carolina Panthers. But things were not as good off the field after reports later surfaced that the college was paying for their recruitment. The NCAA alleged that Newton’s father tried to get money from Mississippi state but hadn’t accused Auburn of any wrong doing.

The coach wrote “My complaint comes when some individuals in the media engage in irresponsible journalism that destroys someone’s reputation,” “It takes a long time to repair a reputation, and sometimes that damage is impossible to recover from. In this case there were a lot of assumptions being made and criticisms being spun out of those assumptions; it was harming Cameron’s reputation.”

Chizik wrote “Yet through all the speculation and all the insinuations, Cameron showed an incredible focus that few mature adults — let alone college students — could have maintained,” “In addition to the recruiting controversy, he was also dealing with the frenzy of media attention that goes with being favored to win the Heisman.
