Less than a week after ESPN.com reported that someone claiming to represent Cam Newton was accepting money for his signature on a National Letter of Intent, FoxSports.com is reporting a new back story as to why Newton left the University of Florida.
According to their source, Newton was involved in three violations of the academic honor code, including writing his name on someone else's paper and purchasing a paper from the Internet. Although the Newtons have claimed that the quarterback decided to transfer because Tim Tebow opted to stay in school for his senior year, the source told FoxSports.com that Newton was in fact no longer enrolled at Florida before Tebow made his decision.

A week after big upsets of Stanford and Ohio State, the USC and Virginia Tech themselves fell to less-talented opponents. Georgia also fell to South Carolina after pummeling Clemson in the opener.
