News broke today that the NCAA is investigating the recruitment of Cam Newton, and what part a potential runner, church donation, and Mississippi State played in it. Former State quarterback John Bond was apparently called by one of his former team mates ‘representing,’ Newton, and was asking for money to the tune of $180,000. Shockingly, the former-athlete-asking-for-money to deliver goods he might not have the rights to – this time – was not Ed Davender.
ESPN wrote a pretty detailed story on it – which you can read here – but the only thing that it’s really showing is that the NCAA is in all likelihood investigating the situation. I mean, you don’t request financial records from the father if you aren’t investigating do you?
But Kentucky fans should know better than anybody at this point, just because there are rumors out there does not make them true. We will have to wait and see.
Unrelated: I posted the James video a couple weeks ago, so I figured it was only appropriate to post the parody. Some salty language, but it’s South Park, what do you expect? Overall funny, though I don’t know that it’s Matt and Trey’s best stand alone bit.
