All I Do Is Read…

I saw this for the first time several days ago.  I knew it was something I wanted to post on this blog.  The perfectly timed allegations, distractions, and slander towards this tremendous player, Cam Newton, are getting to be too much.  How about the media spread positive news rather than aide each other in their efforts to report unreliable news resulting in a character assassination of an outstanding young man and athlete?

Watch this video.  Do you think Cam Newton lacks integrity?  Please.  Oh, and by the way, he has been volunteering at this elementary school since he arrived in Auburn.  He dreams of opening a day care center and helping children in need.  This video was made before the most recent mud slinging.

War Eagle!

  1. I just think this whole dumb thing is a case of sour grapes by "other teams" who are upset we are UNDEFEATED! :) We've played impeachable games, so question to star player...

  4. Abby i really miss you guys!!! I just posted this on the message boards about the up to date timeline.

    So far the timeline is like this. The initial ESPN story by Schalabach relied on a game of phone tag to the 4th degree that panned out to be nothing more than triple hearsay gossip, no reporter in the work would consider a 'he told his bud...dy who told his girlfriend who told me that..' to be a cr...edible 'source'. Then FoxSports' Thyer printed a story about cheating allegations which UF confirmed were false and it turned out the 'source' of that story was a guy working in the Film Dept of UF's football program. So, the first 2 stories are entirely unreliable and just not credible, but for some reason they were printed anyway. Only coaches can recruit players, so that means the two sources were MSU coaches or MSU violated NCAA rules by having outsiders recruit for them. If they knew about requests for money why did MSU continue to recruit Newton?
    That doesn't make sense and they wouldn't or they would be violating NCAA rules. Furthermore, if they were asked for money and supposedly told the SEC about it, why did they continue to recruit him? Simple, they wouldn't but they did which points to either a dirty and stupid MSU program or this is just not true. And if it is true why would Newton call another school and admit to being paid? No intelligent person would put their college football career and the reputation of their father in the crosshairs like that. And if Mullen's assistants are the sources of this story why is Mullen dodging questions. Simply put, the first 2 stories are totally bogus, and the latest pay for play story just doesn't add up. Chizik says NEWTON WILL PLAY vs. UGA!

  5. @Natalie-We miss you like crazy!!! How is newlywed life? I'm sure you two are really enjoying it. Thanks for setting the record straight. Now, if only we could get all of the other outlets to do the same. Judd and I just had lunch together and discussed how badly MSU looks either way. It's a sad day/week/month for college football.

  7. Natalie…..you rock! Miss you lots. Great assessment! Things definitely don’t add up. I choose to stay positive and support Cam and Auburn in any capacity I can. I believe that Auburn did its research on this matter and found no incriminating evidence. The fact that Cam is eligible to play speaks volumes. We have one of the best, if not the best, compliance departments in the nation. My beef is with the SEC and Slive. I think it would help matters for the SEC to make a statement no matter what the factual evidence is. My worry is that more teams and players will be drug into this mess and the mud slinging/smear campaign will escalate from allegations about one player into a league (SEC) free for all. I have to believe that the rest of the of the country would like nothing more but to sit back , relax, and watch the SEC schools battle one another until there is no credibility left in the league. Instead of winning national championships and taking care of business on the field, the SEC seems to be imploding. The longer the SEC lingers on the matter, the messier it could get. I’m not saying that it could get as bad as the old SWC, but I hope the SEC Commissioner will step in and not let it get to that point. Correct me if I’m wrong, but by my current count is that three schools have been pulled into this mess….MSU, Florida, and Auburn. Today I heard that there could be allegations released soon about the recruitment of Ole Miss QB Masoli. This was also from a MSU alum as well. If you add all of this up, it seems to me that the arrow points to one school……MISSISSIPPI STATE! Where there is smoke, usually there is fire. I think our neighbor to west is definitely “burning”. Throw in the troubles at Tennessee with their basketball and football program, all the stuff with Marcel Dareus at Alabama, A.J. Green at UGA, and the SEC has definitely been under the microscope this year. Needless to say, the SEC has seen better days.

  11. I'm so glad you posted this. I've seen it before, but I could watch it a dozen times without it getting old. If Cam had never played a down at Auburn, his legacy would still be tremendous, more than most athletes ever dream. He knows what really matters. War Cam Eagle!
