The coach for Auburn Gene Chizik was fielding a steady stream of questions regarding the ongoing NCAA investigation as well as a testy exchange taking place with the governing body’s enforcement director. This is quite surprising that the topic did not pop up during the Southeastern Conference media days back on Thursday. Baseball betting lines

Many of the key players from the Tigers’ national championship are now gone and the most notable one of which is Cam Newtown the quarterback as well as the defensive tackle Nick Fairley. The NCAA investigation into the recruitment of Newton still casts a shadow over the program and Chizik which is why it was the subject of nine of the barrage of 21 questions he had to field when at the podium. But Chizik was very confident even if he was not entirely accurate regarding the portrayal of the current situation. Baseball lines

He said “The NCAA on more than one occasion said that Auburn has done nothing wrong in the recruitment of Cam Newton,” “Nothing’s changed. I can’t control everybody’s microphone, can’t control every opinion. I don’t try to. But I feel very good when my head hits the pillow at night.”

The NCAA have reinstated Newton after it was Auburn which briefly suspended him prior to the SEC championship game, they said that there wasn’t enough evidence to suggest that he or the school had known of their father’s efforts to sell the services of his son to Mississippi State. Since then the President of the NCAA Mark Emmert has explained this as a judgment call by the reinstatement but not an enforcement. He did however acknowledge that he does find the decision “morally objectionable”

Back in February Emmert said “There was no evidence that money had changed hands and there was no evidence that Auburn University had anything to do with it,”

Chizik said “I was simply asking Julie, who is the top enforcement official, to clarify some process,” he said. “I was just very appreciative that she was willing to give me some clear answers.  “I was just looking for clarification of the process, which she was happy to do,”  However Auburn has yet to get an official letter regarding the inquiry by the NCAA and its findings.
