    Well you might as well scrap the whole sport then. How would schools without big pocketed boosters compete?

    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Seriously though, anyone want to picture Cam Newton replacing Tim Tebow in Florida right now?
    When he was at Florida he couldn't pass Brantley on the depth chart, sounds like he needed an event to get him focused on the game.
    Go Gators!

    If I wasn't so cynical about Auburn and the SEC I might not believe this story. But Auburn is dirty in so many ways. Most of their athletes honestly couldn't get into school at University of Phoenix.
    That's of course total BS. And, this is pretty much a non-story.

    Cam's Father tells him to go to Auburn and makes the decision and his church is suddenly rebuilt perfectly.

    Doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure this one out. If it smells bad and comes from the Auburn program it is probably bad.
    Seriously. Pause and actually look at the facts..... There is no connection between Rogers and the Newtons. There is no connection between Rogers and Auburn. Rogers actually approached someone on the periphery of MSU athletics-he's basically got little access to anything in this situation. The NCAA is not investigating Auburn's recruitment of Newton. Rogers has a history of misrepresenting his connections to players. These are the facts as of today.

    Auburn, the SEC, and the NCAA new of the Rogers situation in July. If there was anything substantial to this situation, you can be guaranteed that Newton would have never seen a down in the NCAA this season.

    A brain surgeon thinks twice and cuts once...and he makes sure he knows where his scalpel is pointing (i.e. the facts), before slicing.

    BTW, kudos for MSU for ethically reporting Rogers as soon as he tried his BS.

    No hard proof yet. But the dots are out there...will they be connected?

    (I have no clue whether this is true or not)

    Schools without big pocketed boosters don't compete now. Let's face it...9-10 schools every year have a realistic chance to play for a national title in football.

    If some nut fan with a bunch of money wants to give a player loads of money so his dad can rebuild his church, I don't see who loses there...

    From Wikipedia:

    In 2007, as a freshman, Newton earned the spot over other freshman quarterback John Brantley as the back-up for star quarterback and eventual Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. In 2008, During his sophomore season, Newton played in the season opener against Hawaii, then agreed to take a redshirt season. Cam Newton was arrested on Friday, November 21, 2008, on felony charges of burglary, larceny and obstruction of justice after allegedly purchasing a stolen laptop from a student at the University of Florida. He was subsequently temporarily suspended by the team after the laptop was in fact found to be in his possession. Newton was eventually welcomed back to the team. However, when Tebow declared he would return for his senior season, Newton and his father agreed it would be in his best interest to transfer.[2] All charges against Newton were dropped after he completed a court-approved pretrial diversion program.

    Trust me, as a someone who follows the Gators, he agreed to take the Redshirt because he had fallen behind Brantley, it was common knowledge in 08.
    Go Gators!

    I don't doubt it, but think of Cam Newton running the show now instead of John Brantley. I think you could debate if Urban Meyer or Gus Malzahn would get the most use out of Cam.

    At least you guys have Jeff Driskell coming in.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Foxsports.com is reporting that Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton had three instances of academic cheating while attending Florida and faced potential expulsion from the university.

    Newton was arrested for the theft of a laptop from a Florida student's dorm room in November 2008. The website reported late Monday night that Newton again violated the university's honor code by putting his name on another student's paper and turning it in.

    Newton then turned in a second paper to the instructor, but it was later found to have been purchased off the Internet.

    His father, Cecil Newton Sr., declined comment to Foxsports.com.

    "I wasn't there," the elder Newton said. "I cannot confirm or deny. At a time like this, I'm taking a defensive posture."

    The NCAA is reviewing the recruitment of Newton.
    This really has little to do with the current investigation of Cam Newton, but............. Cam Newton had some serious character issues before his rise at Auburn. And this story here doesn't really bode well for his character.

    Does anyone really think Auburn cared or cares now? That school is honestly embarrassing to good SEC institutions like Florida and Vandy. They are the one's who should be insulted by the rest of their league.

    So Urban Meyer is now the Secret Police of the SEC?

    Yes. And again, one wonders why you're grinding this axe.

    Florida doesn't exactly come out of this looking like a quality institution. How many times does a football player have to cheat there to get tossed out?

    That is true. I can't believe how that just gets swept under the rug anywhere. Marcus Hall at TOSU was declared ineligible all year because of one case of suspected plagiarism on a paper.
