    Best in the land… hmmm, it would seem not even best in the WAC as of this week. Great program, but not even close to best in the land. I doubt they would keep their image in any stronger league in the country, considering how quickly they buckled the first time they experienced any real adversity this week against Nevada. They can not be said to possibly deserve BCS berth considering their weakness of schedule. The point of the National Championship is to pit the two most proven schools in the country against each other – not to give an albeit skilled and popular underdog a chance to prove themselves on the big stage for the first time in their season. Cam Newton and the Tigers have done this, as has Oregon. They went into and came out of the season as the best in land, and they deserve the chance on the big stage, and that is regardless of any allegations (b/c allegations are ALL they are) as well as any mistakes made when they were 18 years old, immature, young and stupid.

      Andrew: Yea, at the time of the writing they had won 21 straight—beat Virginia Tech and Oregon State, They blew a 24-7 lead to then #19 Nevada to lose in OT. Unfortunately, we will not get to see them play a top 10 ten team in a bowl this year, because despite their weak conference they are capable of beating anyone. As far as Cam Newton—best college football player that I’ve ever seen! However, If I had a vote, I’m waiting until the last day (December 6) to submit my ballot.
      These allegations if proven true would make him ineligible. That means his Heisman award would be vacated as well as all of Auburn’s wins. That is a lot to chew on. Most likely the NCAA will not release any findings before then. Plus there is always the appeal process. So those voters have a huge decision—vote for Cam and down the road risk having to take back another Heisman or cast their vote on a safer candidate.
      We all should hope these allegations are just that and the NCAA returns no finding of fact, because if the do the rest of those Auburn players and their families will suffer too.
      No matter what–Cam Newton still wins—he will earn millions in the NFL. So there is no reason to feel sorry for him.

    Enjoyed this. It would be a shame if they go undefeated and still don’t get picked to play in the championship game. That would be crazy. Can that really happen?
