According to an Alabama radio host, there is allegedly audio that suggests Auburn quarterback Cam Newton was in the room when his father Cecil solicited money from Mississippi State for his son's services.
If true, Cam could be ruled retroactively ineligible for the 2010 season. Meaning Auburn would have to forfeit their BCS National Championship. You can expect this story to rear its ugly head for some time to come. Mon, Feb 28, 2011 09:15:00 PM

Cam Newton has decided to leave Auburn and get paid for his football services. He'll enter the NFL Draft.

This is not a surprise. It'll be interesting to see how Newton performs in the combine and where he lands in April.

Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn has turned down a reported $3M offer to coach Vanderbilt.

Heading to Vandy would have been a big risk. Instead he'll likely get a hefty pay raise from Auburn and have plenty of opportunities to be a head coach in the future.

A number of sources are the refuting the Washington Post report that Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn has accepted the head coaching position at Vanderbilt.

The job has apparently been offered, but Coach Malzahn has not made a decision on whether or not to accept the position.

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton is a scoring machine as South Carolina found out once more in the SEC Championship as he accounted for six scores in the win.  Newton threw for 334 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 73 yards and two more scores.

As I have iterated all season, we can only hope that he comes back for next year. Unlikely I know.

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and Tigers' fans everywhere received an early Christmas present when the NCAA ruled today in a released statement that Newton is eligible to play for the Tigers. "Auburn University football student-athlete Cam Newton is immediately eligible to compete, according to a decision today by the NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff. The NCAA concluded on Monday that a violation of amateurism rules occurred, therefore Auburn University declared the student-athlete ineligible yesterday for violations of NCAA amateurism rules."

Apparently both the SEC and NCAA acknowledge there was some hanky panky going on with his father Cecil Newton and possibly others but "B\based on the information available to the reinstatement staff at this time, we do not have sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or anyone from Auburn was aware of this."Thus ends weeks of speculation and innuendo. We can all get on with our lives now.

Cam Newton looked more like Mr. Heisman in the Iron Bowl as he brought his team back from a 24 point deficit to beat rival Alabama 28-27.  Newton was the offense as he threw for 216 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for 39 yards and a score.

Newton is unstoppable and, from a fantasy perspective, we can only hope he comes back for another season.

The FBI has apparently inquired about Auburn booster Milton McGregor and his possible involvement in the recruiting controversy surrounding Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, a source told TMZ.

Two things to consider here, first is the source. TMZ has thrown a lot spit balls at the wall since getting into sports journalism (cough cough) and not much has stuck. Second, there is nothing yet to suggest that McGregor has any connection to the Newtons. The drama continues.

In yet another gutsy performance, Auburn quarterback Cam Newton took the team on his shoulders and kept them undefeated.  Against Georgia, Newton threw for 148 yards and two touchdowns but did the bulk of his damage on the ground with 30 carries for 151 yards and two scores.

All we can hope is that he returns for his senior season...

WSBTV in Atlanta is reporting that "a source close to the situation" has told them that Cecil Newton admits he had conversations with an ex-Mississippi State player about seeking payment for Cam Newton to attend MSU. Cecil says that no money exchanged hands, there were no such discussions with Auburn and Cam had no knowledge of the talks.

Maybe he's telling the truth, but it is hard to trust Cecil giving full disclosure on the matter. NCAA rules state that no one is allowed to solicit money on behalf of a player. Since there is no connection to Auburn at this time, however, it is unclear how exactly this ambiguous rule would apply.

Despite the recent allegations and several "no comments" from the Auburn athletic department on quarterback Cam Newton's status, the Auburn Bureau states that he is expected to start this weekend.

Obviously this is an ever-changing story so this could change in the blink of an eye. If it does, you can bet it will be much publicized.

In a follow-up interview with ESPN 103.3 FM, Kenny Rogers stated that Cecil Newton was the one soliciting money from Mississippi State in exchange for quarterback Cam Newton's commitment, not him. Rogers says that he, Cecil and two Mississippi State coaches meet on Nov. 27. 2009 when Cecil brought up payment. Listen to the podcast in the below ESPN link for more on the story.

Why Rogers didn't mention this in his initial phone interview last week certainly warrants questioning. But no matter how you slice it up, it's not looking good for Cecil. Regardless of whether or not Cam or Auburn are involved, it is against NCAA rules for players or people associated with a player to solicit or accept extra benefits. This story obviously isn't going away anytime soon.

A Mississippi State recruiter claims that Cecil Newton, Auburn quarterback Cam Newton's father, commented that it would take "more than a scholarship" to bring Cam to MSU.  Another recruiter says that Cam regretted that he committed to Auburn over MSU but "the money was too much."  This information was relayed to SEC officials back in January.

This story is getting uglier and uglier and fingers are starting to point to Cam's father Cecil.  Many reports state that Cecil made the final decision for Cam to go to Auburn.

FoxSports.com is reporting that current Auburn quarterback Cam Newton had three separate instances of academic cheating during his short time at the University of Florida.

If the reports are true, and if one couples these troubles with Newton's theft of a laptop, then it's clear that he wasn't listening to enough of his father's sermons. And we should prepare for a whole bunch of noise between now and the announcement of the Heisman Trophy.

In a Heisman clinching performance, Auburn quarterback Cam Newton single-handedly dispensed of the Chattanooga Mocs with 317 yards passing and four touchdowns while also putting up a rushing score.

With Newton, all you can hope for is that he comes back next year so we can all enjoy his fantasy stardom one more year.
