Who's talking about Cam Newton today?

Because this has now become the "Neverending Story", there are a few people talking Cam Newton today. Because what would a college football day be without it?

After all, noted un-friend of the OSG, Paul Finebaum asked the question "Is this the biggest story in College Football History". No, it isn't. And please spare us the histrionics.

However, the story is the biggest story of the moment...and it continues today.

There are a couple of nuggets from today: According to published reports, the FBI spent at least part of the day talking with Mississippi State booster and person who this all started with, Bond, John Bond.

Here is a wrapup of the day's events in this story from the Jackson Clarion-Ledger RIGHT HERE

The other interesting nugget: According to Al.com, the NCAA also spent part of the day speaking with Alabama graduate assistant Jody Wright. Why Wright you ask? Because he was Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen's administrative coaching assistant last season.

This is all very interesting and if I'm Mississippi State, I'd be a bit worried. Whether the Newton's get in trouble or not, it appears...at least on the surface that Mississippi State will. There were some things said that raised more than a few eyebrows and will probably come back to haunt them.

Blame it on impatience or whatever, but they should have waited to bring this up. Remember, the NCAA is a monolith and they don't do anything quickly. Unless it is in their best financial interest to do so.

This story will not wrap up until sometime in the spring. Mark our words. But it will wrap up. And there will be more than one person in trouble. It's just a matter of whom those people will be.
