Despite claims to the contrary, Daddy Newton apparently pops up at championship game

It wouldn't be news, but Auburn made it so -- as did Brent Musburger and the ESPN crew: Cecil Newton, they all said, would not be at the BCS Championship Game. The reason: Let's just say all parties agreed it would be better if the father stayed away. Musburger said the elder Newton, at the center of a pay-for-play controversy involving his son, would watch the game at a Phoenix bar.

Lo and behold . . .

And this from Thayer Evans' one-man crusade against Auburn and The Newtons.
