You know all those Auburn people that like to pretend the investigation into Auburn’s recruiting practices is over.
Well they just got some bad news courtesy of the New York Times.
According to the nation’s newspaper of record, a clueless Gene Chizik went on the offensive where he attacked the NCAA for its handling of the Cam Newton situation. The confrontation took place during the SEC’s Spring Meeting.
The Times reported, “(Gene 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.”
The NCAA put Chizik in his place with a powerful response.
“You’ll know when we’re finished,” Roe Lach told Chizik, according to several coaches who were at the meeting, the Times reported. “And we’re not finished.”
And the Times reveals even more insight into what fellow SEC coaches think of Gene Chizik.
Everyone thinks he is a dumbass.
According to the report, “Arkansas’s basketball coach, Mike Anderson, said there was a visceral reaction in the room to Chizik’s questioning, with coaches shrugging their shoulders and looking perplexed.”
Of course they were perplexed. The only people who think Auburn did not cheat in regards to Cam Newton would be Gene Chizik and perhaps one or two callers to the Paul Finebaum Radio Network.
Not exactly the membership of Mensa.
And Chizik’s idiocy ranks right up there with Cecil Newton. Cam’s dad spoke with the media about the situation and created a host of new questions with a non-denial denial.
The NCAA’s probe into Cam Newton’s recruitment continues along with probes into other Auburn recruiting practices. These are facts that find new proof each day. The only question is how long will fans have to wait before something definitive comes from the NCAA.
