Report: Failed Drug Tests Kept Secret At Auburn

InvestigationA dozen players on Auburn’s 2010 football team failed tests for synthetic marijuana and while former coach Gene Chizik and A.D. Jay Jacobs were aware of the tests, they kept the results secret, even from players’ parents.  That’s what ESPN The Magazine and the cable network’s program “E:60″  are claiming after a six-month investigation into Auburn athletics.  

ESPN says freshman tight end Dakota Mosley failed seven consecutive weekly tests for the drug but was never punished.  He was, however, suspended in a separate incident.  The network obtained text messages between Mosley and his father, Harrison, from March 2011.  Mosley had just met with an NCAA investigator after meeting with Chizik.   His father was concerned about a photo circulating on the Internet showing Dakota with stacks of bills:

 

Harrison: “Did you ever visit with the NCAA lady?”

Dakota: “Yeah, I did.”

Harrison: “So what was said?”

Dakota: “Just asked about the trips.”

Harrison: “What about the picture?”

Dakota: “Just told them it was from my mom selling her car.”

Harrison: “That was it?”

Harrison: “Call me for a minute.”

 

An Auburn spokesman there was no connection between Mosley’s meeting with Chizik and the one Mosley had with the NCAA.

In an interview with the network, Auburn A.D. Jay Jacobs says because synthetic marijuana, also called “spice”, was new and it was not part of the university’s official drug-testing policy. Therefore, it was not something coaches could punish students for using.

Regarding the meeting with Chizik, Mosley told ESPN, ”The whole time, I was thinking, ‘They can’t do nothing about the spice,’”  The day after the meeting, Mosley took part in an incident that left him and three other players charged with armed home invasion robbery.

A report from Auburnsports.com disputes the ESPN contention that test results were kept secret from parents.  The Rivals site spoke with the parent of a former player who said he was informed by the school of his son’s positive test. “I haven’t seen the ESPN story, but if they said the parents weren’t notified, that’s not true. I was called and I know two other parents that were notified, too.”

Man, can we just get back to playing football already so reporters and analysts have something to cover besides allegations and innuendos?  On a side note, maybe the NCAA should outsource their investigations to private companies, since they seem to have a better record of uncovering dirt than the NCAA does.
