Cam Newton Scrambles His Way To The Heisman

I could sit here and trash Cam Newton, calling him a cheat, a thief and every other name that journalists have called him over the last two months. But for one night, I am going to refrain from doing that.

Rather, tonight is about celebrating a football player that has nearly completed one of the greatest statistical seasons in SEC history. He has helped carried a football program out of oblivion and back into the limelight for the first time since the days of Cadillac Williams almost a decade ago.

Newton became the third Auburn Tiger to win the Heisman Trophy, and the first since Bo Jackson in 1985. Newton was left off over 100 ballots, but received 1st-place votes from 93 percent of the ballots he was listed on. That combination led to 729 first-place votes for Newton, leaving runner-up Andrew Luck in the dust by nearly 1,200 points.

So now the comparisons will begin from blood-thirsty reporters, calling this new superstar athlete “the next Reggie Bush,” regardless of what the NCAA may have said and done in recent weeks about Cecil Newton’s actions. But from the eyes of this young blogger in the radio industry, I say we let Cam Newton enjoy this moment with his inner circle and leave the¬†allegations to the NCAA.
