Little News, Lots More Talk About Newton Case

The Cam Newton story is back in the news today, though no new shoes have dropped.  Here’s a quick update on the latest:

* The NCAA spoke with former Mississippi State graduate assistant Jody Wright — now at Alabama — yesterday.  Wright was at State during Newton’s recruitment and could possibly be one of the two “recruiters” referenced in Joe Schad’s story for ESPN.  (Actually, that’s quite likely.)

* The FBI met yesterday with former MSU quarterback John Bond.  Bond’s attorney said that he “has been interviewed by a state regulator and federal law enforcement.”  No one is completely clear why the FBI and Mississippi authorities are interested in this case, but it’s a safe bet that both agencies have a possible money trail on their minds.  If money did change hands, they want to know how it was moved, if it was laundered and if taxes were evaded.

* MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin declined comment yesterday when asked if State officials had been contacted by NCAA investigators in recent days.

* Alabama officials are quiet, too.  They would not comment on Wright’s involvement in the NCAA investigation.

* Kenny Rogers — who first denied and then admitted to hearing Cecil Newton’s request for $100,000 to $180,000 for his son’s services — met with NCAA investigators yesterday.  Rogers’ attorney told USA Today: “Nobody’s pointing a finger at Mississippi State for doing anything wrong.  And Kenny has said, ‘I had no discussion with Auburn regarding Cam Newton or anybody affiliated with him.’  He said, ‘I don’t know if Auburn has or has not done anything wrong.’  He’s not pointing a finger at them.  He’s pointing a finger direct squarely at the father.”

* Meanwhile, Scott Rabalais of The Baton Rouge Advocate writes what everyone is thinking – this mess needs a quick resolution.
