Come on, Matt
Hey, I like Matt Hinton. He is funny, insightful and he lets Doug Gillett play in his sandbox. What is not to like?
Well, I have to say I disagree with him about this article. Taking Cecil Newton to task for showing up incognito at his son's last game in college championship game is just a bit over the top for my tastes. Yes, Cecil agreed with Auburn to stay away. However, by all acounts, he showed up on his own dime. He didn't cause a circus before or during the game. He didn't give ESPN endless opportunities to discuss the issues from his visit to Starkeville. To quote Brent Mustberger, "that didn't work out."
So what if he paid his own way in. I'm pretty sure he could afford the ticket price.
