The NCAA is closing its 13-month investigation into Auburn's recruitment of the Heisman Trophy-winning QB Cam Newton, saying they have found no major violations committed by Auburn regarding Newton or other pay-for-play allegations. The NCAA said in a statement....

"The NCAA enforcement staff is committed to a fair and thorough investigative process," "As such, any allegations of major rules violations must meet a burden of proof, which is a higher standard than rampant public speculation online and in the media. The allegations must be based on credible and persuasive information and includes a good-faith belief that the Committee on Infractions could make a finding.

"As with any case, should the enforcement staff become aware of additional credible information, it will review the information to determine whether further investigation is warranted."

It makes total sense. The Newton family turned down $180,000 from Mississippi State to play for Auburn for free.
