If NCAA comes out and says Cam wasn't eligible then what would be the chances then that the SEC would step in before the championship game and say AU cant go because of Newton being ineligible? Please tell me none :)
We are not under investigation by the NCAA. There is no chance that we will not play in the SECCG.
Thanks! I am paranoid now since all this crap. I fear that the SEC would say that since we would have to vacate wins (if he is ruled that he should have been ineligible) that we would not actually be SEC west champs and they would let someone else go. I know I am paranoid but after the last few weeks I trust no one with authority :)
In order for Auburn to have to vacate prior wins, the NCAA would first hace to declare Cam ineligible (which they have not), then start a new process to determine if the wins should be vacated (which they have not), and look very foolish for having allowed Auburn to play him up to this point with no recommendation that he be held out.
In short, it is almost unfathomable that we do not go to the SECCG. ("Almost" only in the sense that we are dealing with the NCAA.)
NCAA is short for No Concern About Athletes.

Fearless And True
This may be old to those who have seen me post it before, but the NCAA just ruled a UNC player ineligible about 10 days ago. The player was one that had originally been asked to sit. The he was cleared, so he played in 4 games.
now they have declared him ineligible after all. However, they did not ask UNC to vacate either of the wins the player partcipated in.
in other words, even if they were to rule Cam ineligible, that doesn't necessarily mean vacated wins.
