At the SEC spring meetings, Gene Chizik was told by NCAA top cop Julie Roe-Lach that the investigation into Cam Newton’s recruitment was still alive.
Today, NCAA president Mark Emmert refused to close the door on the investigation when given a chance by nationally-syndicated radio host Dan Patrick:
“We don’t talk about investigations, but when they’re closed, they’re closed. They will continue to look at anything they have available in any of these situations until they’ve reached a conclusion that there’s nothing more to discover in any of these cases.”
When Patrick suggested that he could then assume the investigation was still open because he hadn’t heard anyone say it was closed, Emmert said: “You can make your assumptions. That’s fine.”
