There is a substantial difference between Newton and everyone else in the conversation. When Newton is found out and it will happen, he will not be eligible this season and as a result will not be eligible for the Heisman.

The comparisons are completely and totally inconsequential. O.J. Simpson is still a recognized Heisman winner. Reggie Bush is not.

Are you really pretending like he didn't know about it? Come on now.

If Cam knew nothing about what his dad was doing, how could Cecil ensure that Cam would turn down his better offers and sign with Mississippi State?

Absolutely pathetic to think that Cam Newtown didn't know what was going on.

Surely Cam knew what was going on, and surely most guys who are in Heisman contention also knew there was money coming in, either to them or their family.
It might be considered "an infraction", but so is a coach or recruiter from buying a soda and all kinds of trivial petty bullschit.

The NCAA makes billions from these great players and they get banged up and risk injury, pain all the time. I'd rather the players get something than these pricks like E Gordon Gee and the rest line their pockets even further.

Maybe that's just me though.



Now, who's gonna start our 2011 Heisman Hopeful Thread?
I'm afraid to start another thread...... lol

Someone fire one up.....assuming no Luck back next year.... fave's gotta be who? Denard Robinson? He looked to be the guy 5 games in. Pryor will be back right? Or is he gonna get suspended over this tattoo scandal?

UPDATE: Yeah, cross of Terrelle Pryor now!

Marcus Lattimore has to be a contender. But he faces a lot of tough defenses in the SEC and racking up huge stats is tough.
Ingram won it last year because the team was #1, not because he racked up huge numbers.

Denard Robinson could pass for 4,000 yards, rush for another 2,500 and score 50 touchdowns and still not win the Heisman thanks to Michigan's "defense".

Well, he was recruited as a corner by almost every school in the country. Michigan and Kansas State were the only teams who recruited him as a quarterback.
