    NCAA: Cam Newton eligible

    Weird ruling today...they acknowlege the "shopping" as an NCAA violation but because they can't show that Cam Newton knew about it, he is eligible.

    Interesting.

    The NCAA needs a child to tell them that the Emperor has no clothes!

    Re: NCAA: Cam Newton eligible

    I don't understand...he was ruled ineligible because his amateur status was not valid, but then he gets reinstated? WTF? How is this different than Reggie Bush?

    Did Auburn know?

    Assuming yes: Hypocrisy.

    Re: NCAA: Cam Newton eligible

    Cam Newton is an amazing athlete and a very good collegiate quarterback. I'm glad he can play and I enjoy watching Auburn run their offense. I would be disappointed if he was ruled ineligible. He deserves to win the Heisman.

    How does that even work. He passed the buck to his dad so since when is willful ignorance a valid defense?

    "I would like to come play there, but it is just too much money to say no." (paraphrased) = Does not deserve the Heisman according to the Heisman guidelines.

    Re: NCAA: Cam Newton eligible

    Auburn can and will still get chizzed IMO. They just haven't found anything yet, so the NCAA has to let him be eligible. The NCAA will make tons of money off Cam playing in the SEC Championship and National Championship, and then they'll take all the losses and the NCAA will keep its money.

    Reggie knew about it.


    BTW- This could be exactly like Reggie Bush as it tkes time to do the investigation and new evidence comes up in the future.

    I'll bet CPR's phone is ringing off the hook with parents who want to be paid!
