Last week at an annual gathering of SEC athletic officials it was reported Auburn coach Gene Chizik asked about the investigation of his school more than a few times and was given a pretty stern response. Well, Chizik is saying that wasn't the case...

Chizik said Thursday that the exchange was "not confrontational at all."

"I was simply asking Julie, who is the top enforcement official, to clarify some process," he said. "I was just very appreciative that she was willing to give me some clear answers.

"I was just looking for clarification of the process, which she was happy to do," Chizik added.

Auburn has not received an official letter of inquiry.
