Auburn Could Be Fined If Newton Doesn’t Meet The Press

Cam Newton hasn’t spoken to the press since November 9th.  But if Auburn’s quarterback isn’t made available to the media following Saturday’s SEC Championship Game, the school and head coach Gene Chizik could face SEC fines.

After the title game, the league calls for “all coaches and players” to be available to the press following a 10-minute “cooling off” period.  According to the league’s media policy:


“Failure to comply with these results and regulations may subject the coach and/or institution to a fine by the Commissioner.”


Gene Chizik has kept Newton off-limits to everyone — including SEC television partner CBS — in an effort to shield him from questions about his recruitment, his father and other rumors. 

But will the coach be willing to put his money where Newton’s mouth isn’t?

According to The Birmingham News, even Alabama’s Nick Saban made his freshman available to the media — a real rarity — following the ’08 title game with Florida.

Let’s suppose Chizik does keep Newton under wraps.  The policy states that such a violation “may” subject the coach and/or school to a fine.  Perhaps the SEC would choose not to fine anyone.  After all, it’s likely that Mike Slive doesn’t want his league’s championship game overshadowed by a postgame presser from Newton.  And you can bet that Newton’s grilling over his recruitment would be as big a story on “SportsCenter” as the game itself. 

One other possibility — Newton could go before the press but announce before hand that he will only take questions about the game.  However, the sight of him “no commenting” time and again would be bad for Newton, Auburn and the SEC, as well.
