      NCAA president Mark Emmert called Auburn allegations "a newspaper story" at his annual Final Four press conference in Atlanta on Thursday.

      "We haven't done anything with that case because we don't know anything about it," Emmert said.

      Selena Roberts{}alleges that Auburn committed multiple NCAA violations in an article released on the website 'Roopstigo.com' on Wednesday.

      Roberts report is centered around former Auburn player Mike McNeil, who was dismissed from the school after he was charged with armed robbery in the spring of 2011. McNeil alleges that there were numerous instances of grade changes, impermissible benefits, and recruiting violations within the football program.

      The NCAA conducted a 13 month investigation into{}the Auburn athletic program, from{}September 2010 until{}October 2011.

      The NCAA found no wrongdoing.
