so Cam Newton is turning "pro" after his "junior" year at Auburn. what a shock. and what better illustration of why the SEC keeps winning Nat'l Champ games.
Newton enrolled at Florida, reportedly got caught cheating academically on multiple occasions, bought a stolen laptop (which he heaved out the window in front ot the campus police who came for him). Newton got out of Dodge before the posse came for him, and holed up at Blinn Junior College.
At Blinn (known as the Harvard of Texas), Newton lead the football team to a Nat Champ and must have had enough of an academic awakening that he magically was back at Div 1 academic standards, despite his academic problems at Florida.
(Unbeknownst to sweet innocent Cam, Preacher Dad is shopping his prime meet to the highest bidder) Cam turns up at Auburn, does not have to sit out a transfer year, kicks ass on the field and then leaves Auburn with a Heisman Trophy, a Nat Championship, having only had to waste a few months of his life with actual college classes.
Gee, how come we cant rebuild on junior college talent ? (that was rhetorical) Even if a 6' 8" running, passing stud wanted to come here........between the academic BS at Florida, the admissions department disallowing junior college credits, and the Big 10's rule about transfers sitting out a year (so they can prove they go to classes!!).......Cam Newton could never have played for Michigan. He was barely a student at Auburn, and I suspect he aint wasting time in class right now.
so lets not praise the SEC teams too much.
