Embattled MSU alum/agent Kenny Rogers admits that he made "a stupid decision" when he sent Bill Bell a text of Cecil Newton's alleged payment plan to make sure Cameron Newton would attend Miss State.
Doug Zeit says Rogers sent the text after Cecil Newton told him to do it. Zeit says Rogers sent the text to Bill Bell requesting the 80/50/50 plan we talked about yesterday.
Zeit, however, also says no money ever changed hands.
Thus, the rub... or one of them...
What's that old question our mothers used to ask us about jumping off a building...???
The Newtons' family attorney, George Lawson, told Atlanta's WSB-TV that he is "one million percent" certain Cam Newton - who signed with Auburn - did not take any money. Lawson says if Cecil Newton discussed money, his son "knew nothing" about it.
The HQ admits that while that may be all fine and good, Cameron Newton's eligibility may still be in question by the letter of the law if Cecil Newton can be found to have solicited the moneys in question from MSU.
Here's the interview Secret Squirrel, aka Auburn grad Mark Winne, had with Lawson.
It's Winne at his best...
More later... we have more to talk about...
