MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The NCAA says it found no major
violations committed by Auburn regarding Cam Newton or other
pay-for-play allegations.
The NCAA released a statement Wednesday saying it has closed its
13-month investigation into Auburn's recruitment of the Heisman
Trophy-winning quarterback, whose father shopped his services to
another school for nearly $200,000.
The NCAA also cleared Auburn in allegations by four former
players that they received payments during their recruitment or
careers.
The NCAA says "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."
It also says the investigation could be reopened if evidence
surfaces.
