Cam Newton Investigation: Kenny Rogers Has An Appointment With The Mississippi Secretary Of State's Office

Silence the crickets, message boarders: The Cam Newton investigation, after a multi-day holiday break, is spooling back up in the public view. Kenny Rogers, the alleged runner in the alleged deal-brokering that went on trying to bring Newton to Mississippi State from juco, will be meeting with officials from Mississippi's State Department on December 9. It's not a meeting that sounds like it'll be particularly fun for Rogers:

Rogers' attorney, Doug Zeit, said his client will meet with officials from the secretary's office and has been interviewed by the NCAA.
[...]
The Secretary of State's office enforces regulations under the Uniform Athlete Agent Act, which governs sports agents in Mississippi. Violators can be sentenced to a maximum of two years in prison and pay up to a $10,000 fine along with additional civil penalties.

And so far, that's all we've got. This is the speed at which we can expect news to dribble out of Birmingham, Starkville, Auburn, and wherever else this case ends up putting down roots.
