GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Urban Meyer says he
didn't leak any information about Auburn quarterback Cam Newton's
academic record in Gainesville.

Meyer adds that no one on his staff would have leaked
confidential academic information, calling it a "ridiculous claim
and simply not true."

Foxsports.com reported Monday that Newton had faced possible
expulsion from Florida for academic cheating before transferring to
Blinn Junior College in Texas. The report also says Newton was
caught cheating three times and was to appear for a hearing in
front of Florida's Student Committee during the spring semester of
2009.

Meyer says "for anyone to think that I or anyone on our staff
may have leaked information about private student records to the
media doesn't know us very well. It's a ridiculous claim and simply
not true."
