Does the NCAA's knowledge of or an institution's attempt to comply with regulations have any effect on a student athletes eligibility? Is the NCAA knowledge's of an incident enough to change a ruling on a case from the athlete being ineligible to the athlete being eligible.
For example, lets imagine that what happened in November 2009 is an NCAA violation that would have caused eligibility issues. Does it matter the timeline in which the NCAA found out? I guess what I am asking is are there certain actions that are only violations (thereby threatening eligibility) if the NCAA is not made aware of the actions that took place?
Let me add one more question:
Cam Newton is currently eligable. What does the NCAA have to do or say if he remains eligable? Do you think they would publically affirm his already eligable status?
Phillip, Do you know how much of this mess Auburn may have known about in July ?
