NewtonPosted by Josh Katzowitz

As our brothers at the Eye on College Football blog have noted, former Auburn and current Panthers quarterback/rookie of the year shoo-in Cam Newton and his former Tiger teammates have been cleared of any wrongdoing in an NCAA investigation.

The NCAA announced today that it had interviewed more than 50 people to determine if Auburn provide Newton or his family with any improper benefits. The answer the NCAA came up with? Of course not.

Which was basically Newton’s reaction this evening when asked about it by Carolina reporters, including the Charlotte Observer’s Joe Person.

Said Newton: “I could have told you that.” Asked for an additional comment, Newton said, “Let’s let old wounds (alone).” And then, Person closed with this tweet: “Newton then smiled and got behind the wheel of his luxury SUV.”

@wvulax39...

you really think that Newton being found not guilty is on the same level as Casey Anthony or OJ Simpson?


Uh, my point was that obviously guilty people were found innocent - hence, the analogy fits just fine.  In no way did I apply that his charge was similar to murder. However I'm sure your ever-impressive 8th grade education couldn't see much further than your original argument.  How very Sarah Palin of you!

And please, no advice from you is needed regarding my vacation or "time off" schedule. You are a product of West Virginia, and the fact you are proud of it, is only more saddening. Be happy that you are one of the lucky minority in the state that actually owns a computer. Now go shoot some 'coons, hate everything you don't understand - which is a lot - and lay down on the futon next to your wife/sister/aunt and relax a while.

In the words of Bart Simpson, "I didn't do it, no one saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything!"

I agree...


All you racist haters want quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Cam Newton to fail because they are youn African American males. Most caucasians are jealous of Michael Vick and Cam Newton because they are young, BLACK, and make more money than them.

The NCAA probably interviewed the wrong 50 people. 

Auburn will never be good again so let's let them have their day in the sun Laughing

What?  Would anyone really expect Newton to say "I am surprised by the NCAA's ruling."?  This utterly meaningless column is only exceeded by the idoicy of those posters who turned it into a racial commentary.

lots of haters on here...

i don't believe everything i read in life - but if you have any common sense you would recognize that taking Joe Schad and the handful of others reporting rumors from faceless/nameless/baseless sources over that of a team of NCAA investigators spending countless hours interviewing 80 or more people and coming away with NOTHING is completely insane and makes you a hating mongrel.  And if you believe the rumors, many of those unamed sources came from the school that got spurned by Newton (Miss St) or had connections to that rival school up the road (Alabama).  Hmmm....

Part of me feels pity for you haters, but the other part thinks this is hilarious watching it eat you inside-out.

And the difference between THE OSU, USC, R. Bush, T. Pryor's tattoos is that those cases actually had this thing called "EVIDENCE".  After 80 interviews an no evidence...its time to stop the witch hunt.

HERPES4ETERNITY screamed:

All you racist haters want quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Cam Newton to fail because they are youn African American males. Most caucasians are jealous of Michael Vick and Cam Newton because they are young, BLACK, and make more money than them.

Which is why most of us celebrate their achievements and spend our money and time in order that we might do so. Please at least TRY to make sense, sir, so that we mightn't conclude that you are a buffoon. 

This white man knows the history of dog fighting, both here and elsewhere in the world. Even in today's America, it's hardly confined to inner city blacks. It has long had its enthusiasts among southern white trash, just as it did among the self-styled "gentleman sportsmen" of Victorian England. Cruel bloodlust is all too common among us.

That said, I am not myself obsessed with those who so indulge themselves, but a great many others are. At least do them the courtesy of refraining form miscasting their (more) tender sensibilities (than your own) as "racism." Just accept that they regard dog torturers like Michael Vick as if the "content of their character" were lacking, just as others might regard the unwillingness to enthusiastically embrace the "artistry" of the bullring as effitism. Different strokes.
