the NCAA and will not face penalties.
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

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.

limited to two professors.
