Kind of like him saying he paid three different prices for a laptop that was "stolen property" then finding out "stolen property" is the lessor charge he pleaded guilty of versus be prosecuted for breaking and entering, which he would have been found guilty.

Yea ... he wasnt taking any cash ... sure.

December 10, 2010  11:42 AM ET

I don't really know enough about the laptop thing but I think something stinks here...he always talks about his dad being involved with everything he does...I don't think it could ever be proved he knew about the pay to play, but we can all have our personal opinions, honestly I love watching the kid play but I don't believe him...

I don't think he was taking cash but I do think he knew about the offer his dad asked for...

same thing ... as soon as his dad asked for the money he was ineligible. TCU should be in the NAt Champ Game.

I do agree with the fact that as soon as they found out about his dad he should of been inelgible, I think the NCAA understud there were going to be lawyers involved....NCAA was protecting theit ****..so they let him play....the investigation still going on..too bad for TCU..

Why not close the investigation if he has been ruled eligible?

Is something bigger looming in the future?

Do a Google search for "Cameron Newton Milton McGregor," or "Cameron Newton FBI" and you can probably find out the stories that are still only rumors. The FBI supposedly found some evidence that has nothing to do with MS State but does involve a big payday for Daddy, a dog track, and a corrupt bank on the Plains. The other case is still underway, so the NCAA has not accessed the FBI's alleged evidence yet. Personally, I think the NCAA and SEC are trying to keep the investigation from seeing the light of day until after the season is over. Auburn and Newton bring plenty of drama, controversy, and the absolute guarantee that the BCS Title game will be sold out.

Don't know about that story......but I got a feeling something stinks and your right after the season this story is going to bust out....

December 11, 2010  07:55 AM ET

The McGregor story is still out there and most people think it will resurface. Problem could be the FBI does not care about football and will release evidence as they are ready and the othe pieces will fall into palce.

Some extra fodder to chew on....

AU fans have this illusion that "AU did not know" so they will not get in trouble...

Has any athletic department ever been caught with recorded conversations???

Yep. Most recently, AU.

Google Pat Dye (AU head coach) and Eric Ramsey.

Who is still an active part of every part of AU Football.....

Pat Dye.

Who do all the power broker alumni (McGregor, Raines, etc...) support internaly for decisions?

Pat Dye.

Just a thought......

Many colleges "didn't know" or did what they were supposed to do when they found out and still got the book thrown at them. Right, Bobby Bowden? I can't stand Cam's arrogance, and I hope that he IS guilty. For all the bashing I did to USC for their dirty deeds and they finally came out, Auburn deserves the same...bwahahahaah!

THE QUOTE "....TAKE MY SKILLS SOMEWHERE ELSE...... SORT OF STRUCK ME AS ARROGANCE TO THE MAX...TALENTED FOLKS ARE USUALLY ARROGANT BUT THIS PHRASE COMMING FROM HIM WAS A BIT MUCH, YOU WOULD THINK HE BE DOING A LITTLE PR WORK AND TONE DOWN THE MOUTH...JUST SAYING..
HE IS A LITTLE BETTER THAN VINCE YOUNG, I DON'T KNOW IF HE WILL BE A STARTING QB IN THE NFL BUT YOU KNOW HE WILL BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY....

December 11, 2010  10:23 AM ET

It's hard to believe that Newton, Jr. knew nothing about what his father was doing given his repeated insistence that he & his father are close! I smell another Reggie Bush type scenario coming up. As for Newton making it in the NFL, he may well go the way that Jamarcus Russell & Vince Young have gone & turn out to be a complete bust, just as they have. By the way, I agree that Newton is absolutely "full of himself".

As far as the NFL goes he will not make the transition.

It's all a means to an end. That's it. Cam Newton doesn't care who gets ******* - Auburn, TCU, the Auburn fans, his team mates. He'll get drafted high, get a big bonus, fail, but still have what the goal was all along - a big payday signing bonus next year.

A "dual threat" SEC quarterback coming out after one big year? What's the worst that could happen?
