This weekend is Heisman weekend and it happens to coincide with the premiere of the 30 for 30 “Pony Excess”. I’ve seen the flick and it’s awesome! I’m sure ESPN put the 30 for 30 directly after the Heisman because of Cam Newton. I don’ t think this is a coincidence.
One of the biggest problems I have right now is everyone is focusing on Cam Newton himself. Why isn’t more attention paid to the Auburn program? If Cecil Newton shopped his kid around and steered him to Auburn, they have to be paying him in some sort of manner. Isn’t this illegal by the program. The NCAA found Cam Newton didn’t know his father was shopping him around, yet he steered him to Auburn.
In 5 years, I expect Cam Newton will no longer be a Heisman winner, the National Championship is forfeited and we won’t see Auburn for 2 years in a bowl game. Is it fair? In my eyes no, but I suspect it’s a financial decision by the NCAA and Auburn. College football is a huge business and decisions seem to point to the money all the way around.
