Auburn Wins the West, Committs Suicide

Official Time of Death: 2:46 CST

Auburn makes the decision to play Cameron Newton even as his father, the good reverend Cecil, is reported to have admitted to soliciting a bribe for his son's signature on a national letter of intent.

Newton, the elder, claims neither his son nor the staff at Auburn knew anything about this scheme of his.

What makes that claim questionable is that the NCAA's investigation has been underway since at least July of this year and this was known to the University.

More importantly, requests had been made to the Newtons for financial records so he obviously knew that the investigation was underway.
