According to Yahoo! Sports and Pat Forde, the NCAA is investigating the Auburn football program for possible benefits in exchange for play. A lot of people have been predicting this for sometime. Here is what the Yahoo! Sports report had to say: According to multiple sources, NCAA investigators have been working for weeks on potential improprieties involving Auburn recruits, players, coaches, representatives of the school’s athletic interests and third parties. Assistant coaches Trooper Taylor and Curtis Luper have been scrutinized by the NCAA, sources said. Taylor is the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach, while Luper coaches running backs and is the recruiting coordinator. Auburn has been long suspected of paying Cam Newton anywhere from 180K to 200K to play for the Auburn Football program by many sports personalities. Auburn is now winless in the SEC and the people in Auburn are calling for Gene Chizik to be fired. They are 3 and 8 so far this year. The jokes have rain...

  • It's Scam Newton. I always knew Auburn paid him. The BCS championship should be taken away from them. A theif and a liar are the same and Cam is both.
  • AMEN
  • THIS AUTHOR HAS NO CREDITABILITY. YOU SHOULD BE SUED FOR LIBEL.
  • KOKOLVSBAMA-YOU SHOULD FOLLOW YOUR OWN TEAM AND NOT ACT LIKE A TWO YEAR OLD. YOU ARE A BIG REDNECK AND AN EMBARRASEMENT TO THE TEAM YOU REPRESENT AND TO THE STATE.
  • QUIT CRYING SWISS 1! JUST SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND TAKE YOUR WHIPPING! ANY COMPETENT PERSON SHOULD KNOW THAT A LARGE SUM OF MONEY EXCHANGED HANDS TO PAY NEWTON OR ONE OF HIS FAMILY MEMBERS. IT WAS WRONG AND AUBURN SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUNISHED. I COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT WHO WINS A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. WHY HAVE RULES IF THEY ARE NOT FOLLOWED? ALL I ASK IS THAT THE RULES GOVERNING THE GAME ARE STRICTLY ADHERED TO. CLEARLY, THIS WAS NOT DONE. AND AS FAR AS CREDIBILITY GOES, AUBURN UNIVERSITY HAS LOST ITS CREDIBILITY AND AND A FOOTBALL STAFF THAT LACKS BOTH CREDIBILITY AND INTEGRITY. MOST OF US HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN AND SHOULD BE A BETTER EXAMPLE. WHEN WE AS ADULTS OVERLOOK OR SUGARCOAT WRONGDOING, WE ARE SENDING OUR CHILDREN A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT LYING IS JUST FINE - AS LONG AS IT CAN'T BE PROVEN! SHAME ON ALL OF US! AND BEFORE I TAKE IT BACK, I'LL ADD MORE TO IT!! STOP CRYING AND GET OVER IT!
