This could quickly become .75 of a year....

Deny everything and drag it out to the end of the season Cam!

combine these 2 statements and he should already be regarded a pro. 200k for 1 year is a mighty interesting salary

NCAA? If the kid actually had his hand out like this alleges, **** him.

SchizophrenicBatman 11-04-2010 05:20 PM

When you consider that college plays less games (and that he might not be finishing this season) it's basically the NFL minimum

Though you have to wonder if Auburn thought it would be a 2 year contract. That's why you don't front load the signing bonus dummies!

MY schadenfreude center is exploding.

Then, again, every bigtime football school is funneling big time players cash in one way shape or form.

Pretty much....you're not dumb for doing it, you're only dumb when you get caught.

I have no problem with this argument, but don't be pissed at the NCAA for doing their job when they catch kids doing it.

It's like being pissed at the cops for busting people for drugs. You may not agree with it, but it's the set of rules in place and they were merely enforcing said rules.

I also am so tired of the victim card being played for these kids (not that the quoted post does that, but a general frustration). They have their hands out and are looking to get paid.

Anyone think this affects his Heisman chances with a lot of voters minds still fresh on the Reggie Bush fiasco regardless of if Newton is ever proven to have done anything?

I think that they will focus on getting this figured out as quickly as possible

Oh, I don't disagree. And I think that the magnitude here is pretty crazy and is out of line for what a lot of the kids get.

However, if this stuff is true, Cam Newton is a complete turd of a human.

I don't want to throw stones when, as an OSU fan, we live in a giant house made of glass.

@SeanTaylor: Yes, I think you are right. He is tainted goods now no matter what evidence pops up or not.

TitanHope 11-04-2010 05:42 PM

I am shocked! Shocked an appalled!

SeanTaylorRIP 11-04-2010 05:44 PM

The funny thing though is that this guy would have never come out if Cam wasn't doing so well and a Heisman front runner. If he were the backup at Auburn I guarantee you wouldn't hear a peep out of this guy.

Maybe. However, rivals in the SEC love dropping the bomb on other programs.

The only thing surprising out of all of this is that Saban underbid.

good bye heisman and good bye season

SeanTaylorRIP 11-04-2010 05:55 PM

If Kellen Moore wins the Heisman I will shoot myself.

Seems like a weak reason to off yourself, but more power to you. Do whomever might find you a favor and do it in a bath tub for easier clean up.

Vikes99ej 11-04-2010 06:06 PM

Ho hum, nothing to see here

This. That's how my friend did it. Saved his mom a whole lot of trouble.

SeanTaylorRIP 11-04-2010 06:10 PM

I'll keep that in mind.

Yeah, you know Bond waited until now to hit Auburn when it would hurt the most. Looks like the NCAA is going to have just enough time to investigate this before Bowl season.
