john bond (the whistle-blower) is interviewing with the fbi today. the FBI?!?! i didn't know it was a federal offense, dadgum! also heard that a guy close to the family admitted there was a pay-to-play scam in place with msu. if cam was tight with dan mullen, and the money was in place, wonder why he chose auburn. assuming auburn's deep pockets have nothing to do with it and neither cam or auburn knew anything about it. benefit of the doubt here. just thinking out loud.

"you're being tough on the guy."

You think? Honestly we all were complete dumb butts at that age. I've never stole but other crap I did was just as bad or worst in the eyes of the law i'm sure. I don't steal I don't lie. The other crap was fair game. I Like Auburn but whats got me mad is 1 He has not admitted to anything good or bad. He looks like he is revelling with the spot light like he pulled it off. It kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth to see him stand in front of the student section like he does. He has put them all in a bad place and they are loving him regardless. It's like he plead the 5th and everyone is ok with that. 2 (this might make you mad) Auburn fans turned into Florida fans over night! The excuses are out of this world. I just always had a ton of respect for Auburn and my anger is a product the lose of it.

Bull...seriously man. You have been drinking way to much of the media cool aid. Cam came out the first day or so and said and I quote "I have done nothing wrong". Chizik has said on several occasions that AU is ok and Cam is elgible to play. I know the media wants to forget that fact but they did say that and beyond that they need not say more. They guy is trying to run a division 1 football program that is #2 in the nation. There has yet to be any evidence beyond he said she said comments that implicate anyone. Im not nieve enough to say that there wasnt something wrong going on nor is any Auburn fan or Alum. Weather that falls back on Cam, Cecil, AU, MSU, Bell, Rogers, Bond or whomever at this point it doesn't matter yet. They are a long way from being done with this. It seems that the only people it does matter to are those who want to just bash Auburn or Cam. Its one of those a misery needs company deals it seems like. Everyone is wanting to break out the electric chair and fry the kid before he's even had his day in court. Why pick on him is my question? Im mean the #1 team in the nation is playing a guy who threatened to kill his gf and literraly tried to. To me that is way worse than anything Cam has done. No media coverage what so ever. All this is nothing more than a way for the media to make a $ right now. They play the half truths, squeek out tid bits of info each day, and are doing everything they can to run the story in the ground. Most people out side of the SE hate the SEC and any team in it. Dont buy into it. As a Auburn fan and 4th generation graduate Im going to enjoy the moment as most of the Auburn Family is doing. 11-0 in the SEC is a feat in itself. If we get to the big show and win...well we still won and everyone knows it even if it goes away from the record books. Just enjoy the ride and the moment. They are few and far between. Until Im shown something beyond reasonable doubt that the Tiger Tail Im riding.

Doesn't it feel good to be able to say that? War Eagle my fellow alumnus! I'm soon to be a Texas graduate too, my two favorite schools!

Ironic that Auburn got screwed out of a title shot by a cheating USC that had a title shot and two Heisman winners in '04. Seems like Auburn should get the same consideration. I like Cam and hope he's done nothing wrong but he should not be judged guilty prior to anything being proven. Seems like he's not letting it affect his play though.

This coming from a Gator fan and I don't much care for Auburn but fair is fair.

OK ! OK ! Its My turn on this soap box!! Would everybody please raise their hand if they think talented players from junior high all the way up arent watched, and tempted from agents all around this country. Tempt most people with a few hundred grand and see how many flat nos' you get. But I havent heard too many people who thinks we ought to pull the liscense from the agent who makes an offer to a minor.....
See the point. Really dont matter what school.
Yes I paid for a couple of deplomas. But I didn't have to pass the tests.

The NFL regulates agents.

I was listening to Kirt Herbstreit today and he seems to think the shit is going to hit the fan. And if anyone connected with the father or Cam has solicited $ Auburn loses all of their games and he will be out of the NCAA. What seems to have happened was this friend of his fathers sent in a pay schedule to a alum in a text. They are in the process of going through his phone subscriber to have access to this proof. 1 of 2 things this is the end and we will all know in a week or 2 or Mississippi will look bad. Read the link without you Auburn glasses on. Hurby also said they are rushing this so they can take action before the bowl season. I'm sure they will drag their feet again when they lose to Bama though.

Click on Kirt Herbstreit fast forward to the 2:45 minute left to go mark and listen. That guy knows more than all of us and does not talk poo and he said he does not expect Cam to play against Bama.

I heard from a very reliable source it was AU that called the FBI in after all the allegations and Cams school records being released. The Newtons lawyer also spoke today and said they have all met with the SEC, NCAA, and FBI. He said they have done nothing wrong and Cam knew nothing of the solicitation. The lawyer also said that there will a lawsuit for the release of Cams school records. My source also said that Cam, his mom and dad, the AU coaches and staff, ajd the ncaa met Thursday night for an extensive meeting in which Cam was given the green light. This was significant because had there even been an slight (and it was stated even the slightest) chance Cam had something against him he would have been benched.
Very good sign.

I've read the opposite. The FBI contacted the SEC after investigating (wiretaps, etc) a famous au alumni with regard to other charges about illegal gambling or trying to influence legislators with regard to legalizing gambling in alabama. (RICO or "racketeering" charges).

The FBI is not interested in Cam, they are interested in a cheezy alum, the Cam thing came out because of their investigation. The Cam connection is a secondary thing that the FBI found along the way.

I hope I'm wrong.
