From the ESPN.com article that broke the story:
When interviewed by ESPN.com Thursday at the family's home in Atlanta, Cecil Newton, Cam's father, denied any wrongdoing. "If Rogers tried to solicit money from Mississippi State, he did it on his own, without our knowledge," Cecil Newton said. Cecil Newton said he first met Rogers two years ago, when Cam Newton left Florida. He said he talked to Rogers on several occasions to find out more about Mississippi State, but never met Rogers until Cam Newton's official visit to Starkville, Miss.And then there's this from Thursday night from the Clarion-Ledger's Brandon Marcello:
CASE CLOSED, your Honor!
I'll have more detailed thoughts, over which I can already feel your rage when I don't post them soon enough, on Friday, but right now my aging body demands that I sleep (what a bitch) and it's probably not healthy to think about the Cam Newton story for eight consecutive hours.
