More Auburn Off-The-Field News

Over the weekend, it was reported in a tweet — there’s a reason I don’t believe “tweeted” reports — that Auburn had hired former chairman of the NCAA Infractions Committee Gene Marsh.

According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports, Auburn “intend 2 fight it all the way.”  Meaning the Cam Newton allegations, of course.

But according to Kevin Scarbinsky of The Birmingham News, Auburn has not hired Marsh. 

You take your pick.  Do you trust a tweet?  Or a man who doesn’t limit himself to 140-character bursts?

In other off-field news, Auburn does not have any avenue for appeal regarding the one-half suspensions handed down to Mike Blanc and Michael Goggans for tossing punches in Saturday’s win over Georgia.

When you throw a punch, you’re automatically ejected and you automatically sit for the next half.  In Auburn’s case, their two defensive linemen will miss the first half of the Iron Bowl a week from Friday.

There is no appeals process at the SEC or NCAA level.

Lesson?  Don’t throw punches.
