Is it any wonder with the wide open offense Auburn plays that he is the favorite.
Then you come to OSU that plays a controled offense that Tressel hs to keep under his thumb no surprise to me.

Perhaps they need to develope a drop box to return the Heisman like at the library.

Cam, pssst, you knew Daddy was asking for money. Be a real man and stand there tonight and do not accept it.

If he should not accept it, then Troy Smith should send his back. he took money for the pay to play system at Sucknut U. You pay'em he plays. Just have to love the double standards that sucknut fans have. If it is someone else, then do not do it. But, if it is their player all is fine.

Cam Newton is Michael Vick II. And sadly, the media, which hasn't continued to conscientiously investigate the circumstances of his recruiting last year, nor more openly and repeatedly talked about all criminal and academic mischief he engaged in while at Florida, is once again complicit in giving someone a pass simply because they are an athlete. Pathetic really but not unsurprising. The fall of Rome coincided with such deification of athletes..........

Can you explain all your hate for Troy Smith and the OSU football program? Troy Smith paid his punishment, has Cam Newton? All you do is dish hate. Double standards is trying to say someone who the NCAA said is guilty of violation of their own By-Laws. By-Laws that do not mention whether the player has to know about them or not, similar to the ones that Reggie Bush violated. Yet he was cleared to play becuase he didn't know? Those are double standards and a loop hole that they've made large enough to drive a truck through.

With all the allegations and facts, such as what happened at UF, as a Bengals fan, why do I get the feeling he will be wearing stripes? lol

Forget the others. Troy accepted cash. Now, I'm not saying that he didn't deserve a second chance. In my opinion, a cheater should not be recognized as being the greatest player in college football, repentant or not.
