Before last night’s BCS Championship Game, Auburn AD Jay Jacobs said that AU and Cecil Newton had “mutually agreed” that it was best for Cam’s dad not to be in attendance.
“Out of the highest respect that Cecil has for Cameron, he won’t be here today,” Jacobs said. Perhaps you heard Brent Musberger push this same line during the broadcast.
Well, it wasn’t true. The elder Newton was at the game, was on the field after the game, was photographed at the game, and was even ratted out by Auburn center Ryan Pugh.
The website SportsByBrooks.com — a site Auburn fans have come to loathe — writes the following:
“Now, with the indisputable disconnect between the Auburn athletic dept. and Cecil Newton, it isn’t unreasonable to wonder what else Auburn doesn’t know about.”
I will say this once more (with feeling):
God, I hope Cam Newton turns pro. I do not want to cover him or his father ever again. There’s just too much nonsense involved. Best of luck in the NFL, Cam. Go. Go now.
