If there was any doubt that the NCAA was investigating Auburn Football or that the investigation wasn't over, it was confirmed today. According to the New York Times, during the SEC meetings in Destin, Fla., there was a heated exchange between Auburn head coach Gene Chizik and NCAA vice president for enforcement Julie Roe Lach.

Roe Lach was there at the meetings for a presentation with all the coaches, and when the question portion of the meeting came about, Chizik quizzed Roe Lach about their investigation into Auburn and when would it be over. Roe Lach apparently got testy with Chizik’s questions and replied: “You’ll know when we’re finished.”

The report of the exchange between the two has been confirmed by head basketball coaches Andy Kennedy of Ole Miss and Kevin Stallings of Vanderbilt.

Auburn football has been under the gun recently for its dealings not only in the Cam Newton situation, but recently with questionable recruiting in South Florida and Louisiana.

Chizik still denies all allegations.
