    I just read a story on ESPN.com that said Bond will be speaking to the FBI about this. I can't figure out why this has anything to do with the FBI. What could possible have happened that would require them to investigate?

    I'm wondering if maybe $200K changing hands in this kind of shady manner may have violated some federal laws

    I figured it woud be an IRS issue, if the money exchanged hands, it's unreported income. Some perks and benefits are also considered taxable.

    Apparently no money did change hands since Rogers was not able to convince Newton to go to MSU.

    It's also possible money did change hands since he didn't end up at MSU.

    It's the least likely scenario given everything currently known.

    Does the FBI usually investigate tax evasion claims? I thought it was usually the IRS agents that did that

    I don't know why you'd say that. They are investigating to see if money changed hands. If they were convinced that no payoffs occured then I imagine Newton would be cleared and everyone would go home

    It's actually the most likely scenario. Since most of what has been alleged has turned out to be true, it's hard to ignore the other part of the allegations:

    that Cam told Mississippi State coaches he had to go to Auburn because "the money was too good to pass up."

    Considering the father has now partially admitted the story, it's a bigger leap to believe no money changed hands than to believe it didn't.

    I don't know why you're acting like they found something. I imagine Newton will be cleared concerning getting money and everyone has probably already gone home. The FBI is poking at Rogers BTW and is likely looking for evidence pointing toward his other shenanigans.

    A fan of NCAA football wouldn't wish such allegations to be true of any NCAA team but given his comments re: U of Tenn allegations, WMR clearly isn't that type of fan

    I don't know if they've found anything but I do think that's what they're looking for
