Confident AU knew the allegation before the season and still played Cam Newton

Cecil Newton sounded tired Thursday night, which was understandable. Someone casts a shadow on your family’s integrity in a national media outlet, it has a tendency to wear on you.

“We’ve been down that road before,” Newton said, without offering specifics, or needing to. “We’re conditioned to bear it and live through it.”
Newton’s son Cam, who’s traveled from Auburn signee to Heisman front-runner in the last year, got dragged down a dirty road Thursday in an explosive story on ESPN.com.
