Auburn didn't give Cecil Newton his ticket

Before Auburn took on Oregon in the title game on Monday, the school had come to a "mutual agreement" with Cam Newton's father, Cecil Newton, that he wouldn't attend the game.  Considering what the NCAA told Auburn earlier this year, about limiting Cecil's contact with the school's football program, it seemed like the smart decision for the school to make.

Of course, as we all know by now, Cecil Newton was at the game.  He may not have been found by cameras during the game, as he wasn't seated with his wife, but there he was hugging his son on the field after the game was over.  Which, as you'd expect, has brought up the question of how Cecil got his ticket.  Well, Auburn really wants you to know that it didn't give it to him.

So who did?  I don't know.  Maybe it was Mississippi State, maybe it was Kenny Rogers, or maybe he just bought the darn thing himself.  The better question is who cares?  I know that we may never know the total truth about what went on behind the scenes with Cam Newton's recruitment, or that we might find out everything in the coming years.

Do I think Cecil Newton violated NCAA rules when it came to his son?  I do, but when it comes to this instance, I don't care.  If he bought his way into the game, then he can do whatever he pleases.  Let's try to get past the hypocritical values of the NCAA for a second here and just approach this as human beings for a second.

The man was already forced to miss seeing his son win the Heisman Trophy.  Should he be denied the chance to see his son reach the college football apex as well?  The man didn't kill anybody, he asked for money.  Allegedly.

See, the problem is that you think you know...

...when you don't. You look at a picture that was taken after the game and draw a conclusion about events before and during the game. As beat writer Andy Bitter of the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer was informed today by multiple people, Cecil Newton was and watched the game from there. As the game ended, he made his way to the stadium.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but you have to use the right words. Next time, do some actual reporting. That means checking facts instead of jumping to conclusions.

Oooh that's so funny on your part!  You will be able to find Auburn University or University of Auburn right next to the University of OBSCURITY or otherwise known as USC!!!!!!

sCam Newton will eventually put UA in the dark ages.  UA will be The Tides door mat for years to come after the revelation is made.

Enjoy the title... for now!

wrong!  Auburn doesn't have to endorse it for him to be on the field.  Have you never seen a college football game where fans came onto the field before?

Where is this University of Auburn people keep talking about?  BTW, a school named Auburn University just won a National Championship!

see that's what haters continue to miss.  Cecil Newton was honest with the AU staff during the summer- before this even became public news.  It was submitted to the SEC office.  Somebody didn't like the answer the SEC office gave AU's compliance office after the review and made sure it became public the week before playing our two biggest games of the year.

You and i do not know how they made their peace since then and it's none of your business anyway.    &nbs

And as far as the prediction - get over it.  AU and Cam= 2010 National Champions.

It's amazing how Cecil Newton keeps coming up with money. Tickets were selling in the thousands of dollars. Add in airplane flights, meals, hotel accomodations, etc. I guess he just prays to God and bags of money just appear, huh?

As for being allowed on the field after the game, the reverend got down on one knee and prayed that all security would look the other way at the exact same time. Hallelujah!

How did he get on the field?  If he purchased a ticket to the game he can't go on the field?  Only able to get on the field if Auburn allows and indorses it.

But at this point...does it matter?  It doesn't to me, and it seems like the only people who REALLY want to keep dwelling on this are suffering a little "butt hurt".
well, let's just say it's a little weird that he lied about it which makes all the people who dont like Cecil to question. What ELSE did he lie about???? honestly, i can care less about Auburn and Newton, i didnt have a favorite in that game and just watched it and hope it was good, so i am not suffering butt hurt whatever that is, i am just wondering why he had to lie about this?? he should've known that if he did go that he would eventually be found by the media, even if it is after the game.
