College Football GameDay: The Cam Newton situation
Now, to the week's big story -- the allegations that somebody representing Auburn quarterback Cam Newton asked Mississippi State for cash in exchange for Newton attending MSU.
Now, it's important to remember that Auburn has not been accused of any wrongdoing. Nonetheless, the Tigers are unbeaten and in line to play for the national championship, so you know this has to be a distraction for the school's athletic department.
Having covered the University of Michigan and having uncovered and broken several stories back in the late 1990s that ultimately led to the discovery that a rogue booster had paid more than $500,000 to several members of the famous Fab Five team, I have a little experience with this sort of thing. The NCAA is like the federal government -- they don't open a case unless they think there's proof there.
That said, I reiterate again -- Auburn hasn't been accused of anything. Auburn, the school. Auburn's quarterback, though, might have some questions to answer. It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.
