An official test wasn't available until 2011. Auburn actually assisted in the development of the test.
Auburn learned of the availability of the drug in stores. Auburn helped develop a test for it because one wasn't available. Auburn began testing for the drug a couple of days after a reliable test was available. Michael Dyer wonders how ESPN could argue Auburn didn't penalize players who tested positive for an illegal drug.
Here's a brief rebuttal of ESPN. You can also assume the the timeline from Jacob's statement is accurate.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
