    Someone should have told him to write a speech.

    Seems like a likable kid. Stumbled over his words though. Made a funny comment (Freudian slip?) saying something like "thanks to my parents, there are so many things that they do behind the scenes that go unnoticed."

    Maybe those actions were noticed after all?

    Stanford produces a Heisman runner-up in two consecutive seasons.

    Who thought that was possible 5 years ago??

    Well deserved. Listen, his dad tried to get money for him to go to MSU, he didn't and Cam didn't take part in it, or so the report goes. Seems like a good kid who just loves the game and it was no surprise that he won with his stats this year. **** he rushed alone for more than Speedy...lol.

    The sad thing is that he probably could have been in this position without the financial bargaining by his father. And anyone who thinks the son didn't know anything about the father's actions as decided by the NCAA needs some serious therapy.

    This young man appears to me to be a burgeoning LaBron James in a different sport.

    I'm not going to say that he didn't know about it but I'm not going to go out and say that because you can't be 100% sure. He didn't receive any money anyway since he went to Auburn and not MSU.

    Well, we don't have a law enforcement investigation leading to a prosecution, but after all these years of sanctions, Reggie Bush, etc., etc. etc. there is a pretty high probability that in some way, shape or form this young man, and his family have seriously benefited by the choice of Auburn.

    I wouldn't dispute that but I'd be willing to beat a LOT of players are.

    And how do you know Auburn didn't merely win the sweepstakes? They seem to be a likely candidate (read: motive) to bend the rules since Saban has Alabama back near the top. They were desperate.

    True but Newton deserved the Heisman. I'm sure all these big programs have players in there that are getting money, getting more than "tutor" help in their classes and other benefits.

    The heisman sucks ass, everyone knows long before the ceremony who wins it. It's as suprising as a DT rant.

    The Kids a thief and my bet a Liar. No damn way his "father" shopped him for cash without his kid knowing about it. He stole **** at the U and was shakey then but hey what the hell he has talent so all is forgiven in the world of sports.

    So Canuck, have you ever taught a North American Bison (AKA Buffalo) to ride in a car and/or drink beer? I'm not asking for any particular reason.

    I am trying not to follow this story all that close since it fits in the "I don't have time to give a ****" category. However, given the excuse that he knows nothing of his father's doings, I find it hard to believe that in every interview I have seen he underscores what a great relationship he has with his father.

    Things just don't add up on the surface and I suspect that this is far from over. Probably just a case of the NCAA wanting all of their money first and then they will deal with everything after the fact.

    Definitely will say that this kid sure does remind me of Vince Young in his highlights. No doubt he is an exceptional college talent.
