Charles Barkley yesterday said that race played a role in Auburn's hiring of Gene Chizik as football coach. "I believe race had a factor. Of course I do," said Barkley, who starred at Auburn before joining the 76ers in 1983. "I look at things from a common-sense standpoint, how do you interview Turner Gill and pick Gene Chizik over Turner Gill?" Athletic director Jay Jacobs denied race was a factor, saying he picked "the best fit for Auburn. " Chizik went 5-19 in two seasons at Iowa State after turns as defensive coordinator at Auburn and Texas.

FORMER NBA STAR Charles Barkley is furious that Auburn University didn't hire an African-American as its new head football coach. And, not surprisingly, he is being very vocal about it. On Saturday, Auburn hired Gene Chizik, the former coach at Iowa State, to replace Tommy Tuberville, who resigned earlier this month. Both Chizik and Tuberville are white. Barkley said he wanted his alma mater to hire Turner Gill, who is black. "I believe race had a factor. Of course I do," Barkley, who played basketball at Auburn for three seasons in the 1980s, told the Associated Press yesterday.

DON'T BE SURPRISED if Michael Vick sends thank you cards to Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o. Last year, Vick was tied for No. 1 with Tiger Woods on Forbes' 10 most disliked athletes in America list. This year, Armstrong and Te'o are deadlocked in the top spot. Armstrong has been vilified since admitting he used performance-enhancing substances after years of denying it. Te'o expected sympathy, but got none, after claiming he was the victim of a hoax involving an alleged online girlfriend and her alleged death.

For three weeks, Auburn's offense struggled to produce points due to a passing game that sputtered under the direction of Barrett Trotter. Frustrated with the offense's lack of production, the Tigers' coaching staff replaced Trotter with Clint Moseley to start the second half against Florida. Moseley responded by leading Auburn to the win. Auburn head coach Gene Chizik made the change permanent Tuesday by announcing that Moseley will make the first start of his college career Saturday against No. 1 LSU. Moseley has not made a start since he led Class 2A Leroy to an Alabama state championship over Sulligent in 2008.

AUBURN'S INTERNAL review into allegations by former players of academic fraud before the 2010 BCS championship game found no evidence of wrongdoing, athletic director Jay Jacobs said on Monday. Jacobs posted in a letter to fans on the school's website the results of a review by his department and the university's Internal Auditing department, which he said refuted a report by former New York Times and Sports Illustrated reporter Selena Roberts. Auburn worked with the NCAA in investigating the academic fraud, said Jack Smith, the athletic department's director of strategic communications.

AUBURN, Ala. - Contrary to popular belief, it's too early to write off the defending national champs. Auburn bounced back from a lackadaisical Week 1 effort, holding on to beat No. 16 Mississippi State, 41-34, when reserve safety Ryan Smith upended Bulldogs quarterback Chris Relf just shy of the goal line in the final seconds. After a brief celebration, the officials cleared the field for a review. They came up with the same conclusion: Relf was 1 inch short, sending the Jordan-Hare Stadium crowd into a tizzy.

Greg Robinson learned to bleed Orange. New Syracuse coach Doug Marrone already has that part down. "When I went into coaching, I always prepared myself for this," the Bronx-born Marrone said yesterday after being hired to replace Robinson as football coach. "This has been the job I have always wanted. " The offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints since 2006, Marrone is returning to the school where he played to try to resurrect a program that hasn't had a winning season since 2001.

IN THE PRESEASON polls, Auburn received no votes. Then again, neither did Missouri. Auburn went 14-0 in 2010. That was followed by 8-5 and 3-9 (0-8 SEC). Which meant Gene Chizik was gone, after 4 years. And Gus Malzahn, the offensive coordinator on the national-title team, was brought back from Arkansas State (9-3 in one season) to succeed his former boss. Now the Tigers are 8-1, ranked seventh (9-1 Missouri is ninth). This week they host No. 25 Georgia. On Nov. 30, following a bye, they'll host Alabama.

Gene Chizik led Auburn to perhaps the greatest season in the program's history, and two years later to maybe its worst. The rapid fall from a national championship to 3-9 and the Southeastern Conference doormat led to Chizik's firing Sunday, the day after a humbling, 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama that showed just how far the program has slipped. The Tigers went from 14-0 with a perfect SEC record with Cam Newton leading the offense in 2010 to 3-9 and 0-8, losing their final three league games by a combined 150-21.

GENE CHIZIK led Auburn to a historic season but couldn't keep the Tigers from descending to their lowest point in decades. The rapid fall from a national championship to 3-9 and the Southeastern Conference doormat led to Chizik's firing Sunday, the day after a humbling 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama that showed just how far the program has fallen. The Tigers endured the worst slide within 2 years of winning a national championship of any team since the Associated Press poll started in 1936 and hadn't lost this many games since going 0-10 in 1950.

Alpha and long shot Golden Ticket finished in a historic dead heat for the win in the $1 million Travers Stakes on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga, N.Y. It appeared as if Golden Ticket would pull off a huge upset all by himself in the field of 11 3-year-olds. But 2-1 favorite Alpha closed strongly in the final yards and the two hit the wire together. The photo finish sign flashed on the tote board, and a few minutes later, the crowd roared when the dead- heat sign made it official.

The NCAA is on the verge of going international. Meeting in Indianapolis on Thursday, the NCAA's executive committee paved the way for Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, to become the first member from outside the United States to join the sports governing body. All it will take now is a vote from the Division II President's Council when it meets next Thursday. If approved, Simon Fraser could be playing games as of Sept. 1 as an NCAA member. It's the first time since the NCAA adopted a 10-year pilot program for Canadian schools that a university has moved this close to full NCAA membership.
