Cam Newton NCAA Investigation: Actually, Make That Cam Newton FBI Investigation?

TMZ Sports (wow!) reports the FBI has requested a meeting with John Bond, the former Mississippi St. Bulldogs quarterback whose whistle-blowing kicked off the whole Cam Newton recruitment investigation world tour. According to TMZ, the FBI says, “We are interested in whether young men are being shopped to colleges,” which, if that’s what the FBI actually says, our great nation is in a little bit of trouble.

The southeastern sports fan should’ve long assumed that the federal government doesn’t really care about college sports. Because if they did, they would’ve cleaned it up a long time ago. But apparently they do care and just hadn’t caught wind of this kind of thing before. Did the executive branch really need to be headed by an anti-BCS blockbuster before they got around to noticing what really goes on in college football?

Just wait til they watch tonight's 30 for 30 on Marcus Dupree.

What’s this mean for Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers? Nothing at the moment, but it can’t possibly be a good long-term development. He’ll play against the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday. No word on whether Auburn message boards have decided if this is just irresponsible journalism on the part of the United States government.
