In a Thursday interview with ESPN's Chris Fowler about the ongoing NCAA investigation, Auburn Tigers QB Cam Newton denies talking to his father Cecil about whether anything uncouth happened. Not during his recruitment, mind you -- now. Cam Newton would like you to believe that as of right now, Dec. 9, he still hasn't asked his dad about the multiple allegations that Cecil asked for money from Mississippi State, jeopardizing a SEC Championship, Heisman Trophy, and BCS National Championship run.â†µ
Because why would they talk about that?
My favorite part: "Auburn possessed what's best for Cam Newton." I've made several jokes on Twitter that are long gone because Twitter is one big memory hole about how much Newton is like Dwayne Johnson's "The Rock" character, from appearance to playing to the crowd and camera obsessiveness to build and athleticism, but there you have it. Cam Newton speaks in third person. Cam Newton is The Rock.â†µ
UPDATE: Of course Cam speaks in third person. And of course Cecil types in all caps.â†µ
