Mississippi State speaks about Cam Newton scandal

Are Mike Slive and the SEC now covering their asses? You be the judge:

Statement from the Mississippi State Athletic Department: (source)

Mississippi State University acknowledges that it contacted the Southeastern Conference office in January of 2010 regarding an issue relating to its recruitment of Cam Newton.

Shortly after the initial call, the SEC office requested specific information to include interviews with involved staff from MSU.

Due to MSU dealing with ongoing and time-consuming eligibility issues involving non-football matters in the winter and spring of 2010, the specific SEC request went unfulfilled. Some additional information was provided to the SEC during July of 2010. Once the NCAA enforcement staff became involved, Mississippi State University cooperated fully with its investigation. MSU is confident the SEC office has managed this process consistent with its established procedures and the university is committed to the conference’s ongoing efforts to ensure compliance with SEC and NCAA rules.

    Dream on, BP – you guys have no offense without Cam – Trotter would never be the threat that Cam is as QB. The best Aubie could do would be to put Kodi in the wildcat and hope he didn’t fumble the ball or throw an interception every play. Without Cam this year, Aubie is at best a 6-5 team with a lower tier bowl to look forward to. Never underestimate the value of a Heisman caliber athlete in your backfield – especially one that’s healthy.

    No way is Aubie’s offensive line as capable and dominant with a lesser athlete playing QB. When there’s always a threat that the QB can run the ball well himself, the OL doesn’t have to work anywhere near as hard – there’s always a mismatch when a LB has to pick up a runner out of the backfield and at least one LB is dedicated to watching the QB at all times. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that Aub has somehow taken that sow of an OL and made a silk purse. Your whole scheme is dedicated to that one player.

    Faith in AU…..Why?
    Give up Aubbos.
    The primary reason I cant cheer for Auburn is always the same.
    The Auburn talking heads and fans are always on the cusp of something big and glorious. Always right there, almost on the verge of a defining glory and victory, but wait…..Hold on one second there partner. There is always some reason why they cant quite push it over the top.
    How many times in history has Auburn had a unbeaten season shot down due to NCAA sanctions? At least 2 that I can remember. And then there was the big 2004 season when Auburn was embroiled in “sociology-gate” (Free grades) and was at there usual low tide of credibility and respect. And poor little Aubie was overlooked for the BCS title game.
    Therein lies the rub.
    Auburn will never have a National Championship. If they do it will be just like the 1957 debacle and of course be tainted by the ol “play for pay” “free grades” or something else.
    Auburn fans. On behalf of your freinds and nieghbors let me enlighten you.
    You have been lied to and led astray for years now. You are making fools of yourselves.
    While Auburn propaganda websites preach the “feel-good” rhetoric about everyone hating your rival BAMMUR and of course EVERYONE loving Auburn University as its universal brother, the reality is a totally different thing.
    MSU has turned Auburn in for suspiscion of paying players.
    FLORIDA has “leaked” information concerning the second coming of Jesus (Cam Newton). Perhaps it is to counter some of the spin about how “unfairly” Cam was treated in Gainesville, (that has been thr own out there by the Birmingham new outlets and “Auburn-Freindly” websites.)
    ARKANSAS is standing in line too. (Dont think for a minute that they have forgotten Walt Williams/Michael Dyer player/pimp thing.)
    All fo these programs that you thought hated Bammer are lining up like Jason Voorhees waiting to get a shot at Auburn.
    The list of people who are sick to death of Auburn Universtiy is growing.
    Auburn is losing the PR wars about Can Newton, and as soon as the Cam thing starts to Clear Michael Dyer will be the next focus.
    And guess what Auburn fan, the real problem has been built -in and festering at Auburn for a couple decades now.
    The central focus and damning nail in the coffin is that patriarch of the Auburn Family himself.
    Pat Dye.
    You can spout off all of the excuses you want about “where’s your proof” but years ago national media outlets were making expose’ after expose’ on how corrupt the Auburn program was. And instead of cleaning house the powers that be @ Auburn KEPT Pat Dye around. They even saw fit to name the field after him.
    Fast Forward>>>>>
    Exit Tommy Tuberville>>>>
    Re-enter Pat Dye and his cronies>>>>
    Big Cat Weekend>>>>Rumors start to come to light>>>>>Investigations start>>>>>
    This will not end well for Auburn University.
    If the Cam thing goes south, others will start coming forward and since Auburn has a known cheater on the Payroll Its going to get ugly quick.
    Auburn if this doenst just go away, In 5 years you will be so decimated a win a over LaMO will be a season highlight.
    Take it from a bama fan who has been there.
    There are Dark Days ahead for Auburn University.

    good post almighty, Dye still believes things are the same way they used to be but they aren’t, instant communication twitter facebook blogs etc. etc. he will not be able to do the things he used to everyone knew how dirty he was, years later even Bowden admitted that he was shocked at what he found I just wonder if they were smart enough to cover their tracks the way they did with sociologygate

    the miss state asst coach followed up and knows exactly how au funneled the money to camdad and it was a very complex scheme and scam using construction company – subcontractors massive construction materials delivered and undelivered…now what camdad has done with the profits is in question – do not assume all that money went into repairs

    Hammah, where the hell do you come up with all the shite you spew out? Shite that no one else in the whole country has said a word about. That phucking stuff just makes you look like a fanatical phsyco and destroys any credibility for anything you say. Who are you, ‘Deep Throat’? Or are you sleeping with Camilla’s mama?

    Auburn fans.
    Write this down.
    3 years from now Cam Newton will be playing football somewhere. Probably in the CFL. he will be making his money.
    He wont care if the truth comes out.
    On the other hand, Auburn University will be reciving an NCAA jackboot to the teeth.
    Aubs much like Eric Ramsey, you will loathe the day you first heard the name Cam Newton.
    What does $200,000 get you?
    One glorious season that has to be vacated and years of sanctions and having to appease the all-entitled NCAA.
    Take it from a Bama fan. You guys are in for a lot of very, very sad times ahead.
    Look at it on the bright side…. at least you are taking some of the pressure off of UcheaT. 🙂
