Newton Matter Not Closed At Auburn, But We Already Knew That

I love reports that really don’t report anything new… they just get someone saying on the record what we already knew.

Enter USA Today.  This morning they posted “news” that the investigation into Cameron Newton’s past is ongoing.  We’ve actually known since Friday that the NCAA is looking into the matter.  But Auburn AD Jay Jacobs confirmed that fact yesterday… which has led to the fresh headlines.

“It’s not a closed matter,” Jacobs said.  “It’s still ongoing.  … But we look for Cam to continue to play for us.”

So far, Auburn has found no issues with Newton’s eligibility.  As we wrote on Friday, the AU administration would not have OK’d Newton to play back in September if they believed their was a chance of him being declared ineligible.

“Any of our student-athletes, if we have any questions about them, about their eligibility,” Jacobs said, “We wouldn’t want them to play.”

The crystal clear point?  Newton is playing.

So while USA Today’s story might pop up in your Google news search as being “new,” it’s really just Jacobs going on the record with a fact that was already known — the NCAA is looking into the matter.  And so far they’ve found nothing… at least nothing that Auburn is aware of.
