Just a touch more intrigue leading up to the 3:30 Georgia-Auburn kickoff, because if there's one thing this game is lacking it's extraneous distraction: Auburn's Rivals outfit is reporting that "at least one representative of the NCAA" questioned Cam Newton and his parents on Thursday. Salient tidbits:
The source could not confirm if the NCAA came to any definitive conclusions on Cam Newton's eligibility following the meeting.
Jay Jacobs, Auburn's athletic director, would not comment Friday when asked if Cam Newton was eligible to play against the Bulldogs.
Newton was seen boarding the team bus Friday in Auburn.
Beyond that, we know that Newton's taken the field for warmups with the rest of his team, and is getting a riotous reception from the home crowd. All indications point to him starting for the Tigers this afternoon, but university officials remain closemouthed, and Gene Chizik has canceled his pregame interview with CBS's Tracy Wolfson.
