    MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The NCAA said it found no major violations committed by Auburn regarding Cam Newton or other pay-for-play allegations and has concluded multiple investigations of the football program.

    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 up to $180,000.

    The investigation hovered over the program during the Tigers' national championship run.

    The NCAA also cleared Auburn in allegations by four former players that they received payments during their recruitment or careers.

    The NCAA never finds any serious wrongdoing. It's like the fox guarding the henhouse.

    Anytime something serious is uncovered, whether we're talking about Reggie Bush and USC or Ohio State or Miami or whatever, it comes as the result of a news media outlet doing their own investigation, and then the NCAA is essentially shamed into responding with sanctions.

    This is especially true when it comes to the SEC.
