All I was stating is that the NCAA said he is ineligible, after they said his dad was guilty for asking for money. Auburn, not the SEC, talked with the NCAA about retracting it, claiming Cam as well as Auburn weren't aware of the dealings that his father did. He was then eligible again. All the SEC did in any of this matter (mediawise) was state that this type of behavior wouldn't be tolerated in the SEC. That's it. This is why I made my comment since it was really between the NCAA and Auburn, not the NCAA and SEC.
Of course, the majority of this has to do with money. The NCAA is fully aware that a Newton-less Auburn team is no where near as strong as they are with him. Taking away 80% of the offense would kill that team. The bowl they would play in would have lost money for all involved.
The best irony in all this situation is that there are players for all top college sports teams getting some sort of benefit. It is about who gets caught and who doesn't. Even if they do get caught, they only sit out for a couple games and get to play again (see the UNC/Georgia/Alabama agent scandel at the beginning of the year). It is also great irony that Mississippi St fired Rogers. They probably talked him into bringing it to life. Now the guy won't have a place anywhere in college football. Good work... you lose your career and the guy still plays
