The Heisman Memorial Trophy

I can't think of a year that I was less interested in the Heisman Trophy presentation than I am this year.  The only real way this could be compelling is if they award the trophy to Toby Gerhart for the slight last year or if Cam says thanks, but no thanks, since his father isn't there.

In all reality, the only reason Cam Newton doesn't win it in the biggest landslide ever is the Reggie Bush factor egregious violations being ineligible, since he isn't an amateur  Cash Cam that stuff he didn't know about, he swears and how the voters feel about that.  There is no doubt he is deserving.  If any of this is true, and it looks like it is, there is no doubt he should have to give it back.  I don't believe  he will have to, just that it runs counter the both the logic of the decision about Reggie Bush, and the plain language on athlete eligibility. 

Not that Mike Slive cares.  He got what he wanted, Auburn in the BCS Championship game and Cam in NY.  What happens to the conference or Auburn after January 8th, well, he'll worry about that on January 9th.


  1. If they give one to Gerhart for the slight, how 'bout the two they owe Herschel?

    I'm just sayin'...the ball ain't heavy.
