Cam Newton was ruled ineligible yesterday by the NCAA. Today, he’s been ruled eligible by the NCAA. Tomorrow, Auburn fans will be even more insufferable than they have already been.
“Auburn University football student-athlete Cam Newton is immediately eligible to compete, according to a decision today by the NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff. The NCAA concluded on Monday that a violation of amateurism rules occurred, therefore Auburn University declared the student-athlete ineligible yesterday for violations of NCAA amateurism rules”
There are no penalties against Auburn or Newton, and no wins are in jeopardy.
Auburn has limited the athletic access to Newton’s father, Cecil Newton. Mississippi State disassociated itself from former player Kenny Rogers, who, with Cecil Newton, tried to “actively market” Cam Newton to Mississippi State.
So it’s finally over…….For now.
