Auburn Erecting a Cam Newton Statue

Auburn announced its plan to erect statues of its 3 Heisman Trophy winners, to include Cam Newton. When asked if erecting a statue of cam Newton was a little premature, the Auburn spokesman responded with the following:

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs says he has no reservations about erecting a statue for Cam Newton while an NCAA investigation continues.

Jacobs says "technically it's still an open issue." But he says nothing has changed since NCAA President Mark Emmert's comments in February that "there was no evidence that Auburn University had anything to do with" Newton's father soliciting money during recruiting."

Anyone who knows anything about journalism or politics KNOWS 'words matter'. The words you choose always have a purpose. Jacobs did not say 'Auburn did nothing wrong, Auburn did not pay Cam Newton or his father, or Cam Newton's father was never paid by anyone for Cam to play at Auburn'. He said 'there was no evidence'!

Cam Newton is now a Panther. I think he is an awesome athlete, and can potentially be the best Panther QB we have ever had. As long as he wears the uniform and his name is on the roster I will continue to pull for him because the Panther's success depends on his success. There is no way, however, that anyone will be able to convince me that Auburn did not pay Cam Newton's daddy for cam to play at Auburn or that Cam Newton never knew what his daddy was up to or did not end up with some of that money.

1st of all, NCAA violations in college football are not a matter of who is doing it but rather who does and who does not get caught.

- Look at Ohio State. Jim Tressel writes his book 'The Winners' Manual', and now it is being reported that as many as 50 (FIFTY) players and their families are being investigated for receiving cash, goods, and/or benefits while the players are/were playing for Ohio State!

2nd, there have already been ex-Auburn players who have said Auburn pays its players:

3rd, you can't tell me Papa Newton shopped his son to several different schools EXCEPT for the one he ended up playing for?! :roll:

As I said, the guy is a Carolina Panther now, and I can get behind him and pull for him to be a great player and QB for Carolina...

....just don't ask me to hold my nose, close my eyes, and 'swallow' the bad tasting story that the guy is completely 'clean'.

The end of the Lockout, however, and ths start of the NFL season will mark the end of one era and the beginning of another for Cam Newton. In his new era of playing football for the carolina Panthers, I hope he brings as much success to carolina as he did to the 2010 NCAA College Football chamion Auburn Tigers.

What's with all these statues lately?

Not saying he doesn't deserve one, but with all these statues it sort of devalues them.

Yes, all these sports statues. I am talking about UF's trio of Heisman's, Scottie Pippen, Saban...

I just feel like the statues are the thing to do now. I feel like with the way things are going someone is going to get statue that isn't worthy. It can be a slippery slope. I personally think they should be rare.

I'm good with said statue...

Here's what I'm not good with...

Once he starts rolling for us, and then the inevitable happens... It's discovered that he was in violation and they take his Heisman... That will effect his psyche and in essence OUR team! Im all about Cam, I'm just dreading the day that all of this happens. And it will. Mark my words... Heisman taken, Nationsl Championship stripped from Auburn, and the school put on probation... I can just hear every MAJOR outlet already asking Cam after a horrible Monday night performance... Cam did it have anything to do with them taking your Heisman, or knocking your statue down like they did Sadam's in Iraq!?

Obviously I don't think it happens this year, being I envision it to happen on a Monday night game... So that way they can chew him up and spit him out on the grandest of stages.

Time will tell in the end... And I honestly hope that I'm very wrong. Something in my gut won't allow me to believe that I'm wrong though.
