The NCAA ruled that Newton's father, Cecil, violated NCAA rules by soliciting money for his son to play football - but apparently that Cam Newton did not know of the pay-for-play scheme.

Looks like Cecil will be preaching to convicts for a few years. What kind of dad sells his son to the highest bidder and he's supposed to be a man of God?

yeah I have trouble buying that Cam knew nothing about it, though I would believe he shouldn't be held accountable for the actions of his father.

Not mad just wish that all schools were treated equally with infractions. But unfortunately this is how I assumed it would go down....

I think the best term for it would be disgusted. I'm disgusted that the NCAA spent five years trying to find anything and everything to hammer the SC program and they spend less then a month to say "nope, nothing to see here" at Auburn (which was a much more severe allegation). The 'AA had their agents practically living at Heritage Hall for the better part of four years. They even retroactively reversed O.J. Mayo's eligibility after their investigators deemed he was eligible before he even set foot on campus. They checked out all the issues with Tim Floyd and Mayo and said yea you're fine don't worry about it and then two years later changed their minds....But like I said I assumed it would go down like this so I'm certainly not surprised at all....

I'll agree that the NCAA dropped the ball as far as precedent goes, but in all honesty, they screwed up the SoCal situation. They definitely made the right call, but in hindsight, SoCal should have never gotten in trouble. There is no evidence that Cam knew anything. He denied any involvement and Cecil said Cam knew nothing about it. There is no proof to the contrary, so this panned out right. At least it is done, and we will be able to see Cam for AT LEAST one more week in an Auburn uniform! WAR DAMN EAGLE!
