Auburn University Cleared of Academic Fraud

The Birmingham News reported Friday the results of an NCAA
investigation into claims that professors were helping football
players and other athletes stay eligiblein 2005 and 2006 through
directed-reading courses, which allow students to avoid classroom

The NCAA said the school did commit secondary violations
involving student-athletes who took those courses when they no
longer had eligibility.

The NCAA submitted its findings to Auburn on Aug. 28 and the
newspaper obtained them under an open records request.

An internal investigation in 2006 found that the problems were
limited to two professors.
