The Twitter has been ablaze this morning with Cam Newton rumors, as you'd expect given all that is going on with the Auburn quarterback and Heisman front-runner. There were reports this morning that a radio station in Dallas was reporting that Newton would be suspended by the NCAA later this afternoon, though that report was quickly squashed by the same radio host who reportedly had said it.
Really, the only thing we know about Newton right now is that he's being investigated by the NCAA, and that he hasn't been suspended yet. We also know, thanks to his head coach Gene Chizik, that Newton will be playing this Saturday against Georgia. Chizik made that clear during his weekly stint on the SEC teleconference before letting everyone know he only wanted to discuss on-field issues.
Of course, that's the plan for now. Considering everything that has gone on with this investigation, who knows what the situation will be by Saturday? Hell, who knows what it will be three hours or twenty minutes from now? I'm just waiting for the report that says Newton was the second shooter on the grassy knoll, or that he kidnapped the Lindbergh baby.
