NCAA Investigators Turn Up A New Cam Newton Violation
The NCAA’s investigation on Auburn and Cam Newton is entering it’s tenth month and their still turning up new stuff. Most recently investigators were down in Montgomery, Alabama in the last month of June interviewing people.
And one individual we know they talked to is Thomas Buckelew, a tailor at Buckelew’s Clothing for Men… who is rumored to have provided Cam Newton with suits, like the one he wore to the Heisman ceremony, at a discounted rate.
But that’s nothing… because word is the NCAA has discovered the Auburn supporter who gave Cam Newton’s dad approximately $180,000-$200,000.
During a radio interview with Paul Finebaum at SEC Media Day on Wednesday, Danny Sheridan of the USA Today said that his sources at the NCAA believe they have found a third-party “bag man” who helped Auburn University obtain the services of quarterback and 2010 Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton.
“There’s x-number of dollars to Cam Newton’s father’s church, and x-number of dollars to his father. And that’s the current investigation. That’s what they’re–I wouldn’t say trying to prove–but that’s what they’re investigating. So those are the two issues: x-number of dollars to his dad, and again, x-number of dollars to his dad’s church. Handled by a third party.”
Sheridan added that approximately $180,000-$200,000 allegedly exchanged hands, with $20,000-$30,000 going to Newton’s father’s church.
