CBS 8 Sports Analyst John Longshore was on CBS 8 News at 10:00 to talk about the reported NCAA investigation into the Auburn football program.

Longshore says news of the apparent investigation includes information that NCAA investigators were reportedly on the Auburn University campus to talk to an assistant coach and several players over possible questions involving recruiting.

Longshore says the question is if anything happened involving recruiting, what did head coach Gene Chizik know about it. He says the answer could affect the contract buyout Chizik gets if he is fired after the season. Auburn is currently 3-8 and is a 31-point underdog against Alabama in Saturday's Iron Bowl.
