Auburn is going to enjoy this. Big Time

Glendale, Ariz.—There was joy. There was relief. There were smiles of happiness. There were tears. There was incredible exhilaration. There was utter exhaustion.

 
You could see it all on the floor of University of Phoenix Stadium in the aftermath of Auburn’s 22-19 victory Oregon which gave the Tigers their first national championship since 1957.

 
Ted Roof, who took more than his fair share of criticism as Auburn’s defensive coordinator the past two seasons, had his arms around his two sons as confetti rained down around him. The former Georgia Tech captain could not be happier. For it was his defense that held the mighty Oregon offense to only 19 points, 30 points below its average.

 
Oregon’s offense had 12 possessions in the game and Auburn’s defense got nine stops: five punts, two interceptions, and what will become two very big plays in Auburn football history: In the second quarter Mike Blanc stuffed Oregon’s LaMichael James in the end zone for a safety. In the third quarter Auburn stopped Oregon on fourth and goal at the Tigers’ one-yard line.
Oregon came into this game averaging almost 245 rushing yards per game. Auburn held the Ducks to only 75.

 
“I am so proud of our guys. They stepped up and played the best when we needed it the most,” said Roof. “We didn’t do anything fancy. It was all about effort. All I know is that we’re the national champions. Nothing else matters.”

 
A lot of people wondered if Cameron Newton had one more great game left in him. He did. Yes, he had a late turnover that allowed Oregon to tie the score make a game-winning drive necessary. Still, it has been an extraordinary season for the Heisman Trophy winner in every sense of the word. He became the flash point of a great debate in college football and it was not pretty. There was a significant portion of the populace that believed that Newton should not be on the field but there were also those who believed in the presumption of innocence. The debate will never be resolved unless more facts in the case emerge down the road. That is another discussion for another day.

 
Regardless of where you came down on the Newton issue, there was no denying that he was one of the greatest college football players we have seen at the quarterback position. I say WAS because Newton will soon close the door on this controversial chapter of his life and declare for the NFL Draft. We may disagree about Newton’s legacy, but we will certainly never forget him.
“I have never seen a football player go what he went through and continue to perform so well on the field,” said former coach Pat Dye, who beamed during the post-game awards ceremony. “People said a lot of bad things about that kid but it never affected the way he played. He is something special.”

 
Then there was Gene Chizik, whose hiring in 2009 brought rounds of criticism from those who thought he was not dynamic enough or tough enough to stand up to what Nick Saban was building at Alabama. But when the sun rose this morning in the state of Alabama, the schools had the same number of national championships since Saban arrived in 2007. Chizik has proven to be a rock solid manager of the program who surrounds himself with very talented people.

 
“It was never about me and proving anybody wrong,” said Chizik, who was the defensive coordinator when Auburn went 13-0 in 2004 and did not get a chance to play for the national championship. “That’s not the way I live my life. From the day we arrived it was about doing what was best for Auburn. I am so proud to be a part of the Auburn family.”

It’s been a great season at Auburn but has also been a draining season for all concerned. The weekly scrutiny which came with the Newton case was not an easy burden to bear. The SEC has won its fifth straight national championship. But the conference had to routinely defend itself against the criticism that it did not exercise due diligence in the Newton case. Now that the SEC has won another championship, that criticism is not going to go away. Such is the nature of success. Off the field, it has been a tough season for college football as a whole.

 
And what about Auburn for 2011? As is our nature, we will quickly move on to next season. Auburn loses 24 seniors including Wes Byrum, who kicked the winning field goal at the buzzer. Newton will leave as will defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who is more than ready to play at the next level. If you had to guess you would say that Auburn will take a dip next season but such dips are easier to take when you have a crystal football in the trophy case.

Both those issues can wait at least a day or two. Auburn fans will celebrate and know that for the next year they are the national champions while Alabama is not. And if you don’t think that’s important, you do not know the state of Alabama. Auburn is going to enjoy this. Big time.

Yes, they will enjoy it right up until the time that it stripped from them, a la Reggie Bush and USC. Perhaps lost in all of the excitement of the last few days was the news that the NCAA investigation into the Cam Newton “situation” continues, with two additional “potential witnesses” having been interviewed this week.

I can already see your article when Auburn loses the championship and Cam loses the Heisman, Tony, you fat cracker. You’ll be foaming at the mouth about “What happened to the good old days when there was ethics in football?” You’ll be moaning about how money has replaced getting an education and “sportsmanship” as the most important thing in the minds of today’s “student athletes.” You’ll be gnashing your teeth about how Auburn and the NCAA let Auburn fans down by not properly investigating this situation and dealing with it when it happened, instead of putting the Auburn faithful through this.

You’ll probably even be riding Furman Bisher’s nuts for the 1,000th time, talking about how back when Furman used to give you a ride to church on Sunday mornings in his Pontiac GTO, you and Furman used to listen to “Afternoon Delight” by the Starland Vocal Band and Furman would entertain you with stories about how his daddy used to whip his butt with a razor strop if he even mentioned “money” and “football” together in the same breath. You remember, Tony, how you’d sit there with your mouth agape, your good eye focused directly on Furman’s already-sagging face while your lazy eye looked off in an entirely different direction, mouth-breathing with excitement as you thought to yourself: “This geezer is going to make my whole career. I’m going to be milking this old sumbit*h for the next 40 years!”

I was at the game last night and am so very, very proud of our school, coaches, teams and fans. Coach Chizik said it all last night and it was a great win for the Auburn family — I just wish that everyone could have been here to experience this. This was a memorable game to attend, and a VERY loud stadium with both sets of fans loudly supporting their teams. AU fans outnumbered Ducks about 65/35 and there were thousands of fans there outside without tickets, many of whom watched from the big screen set up outside at the Hockey Arena next door. The support of the Auburn faithful was remarkable. It is also an amazing feat that the SEC has now won the last 5 NCs, with 4 different teams and something ALL SEC fans should be proud of — no other conference has, or will come close to that feat. The “SEC” chants after the game were heartfelt.
I was up all night and now getting to attempt to fly back to Atlanta via Texas — could be a very long day, but we don’t care. This continues to be a lot of fun and we will enjoy this and have a great time today on the road with fellow AU travelers. Just as said as we were cheering inside and outside the stadium last night — It is indeed “great to be an Auburn Tiger”.
Hope everyone has a GREAT day — I know ALL of the Auburn family around the world will…..

TCU gets my vote for NATIONAL CHAMPS. They have a better defense than both teams and they are a much more complete team. Without Newton, Auburn is a slightly above average team, not national champs. They have Newton for now — until the FBI gets done. This whole system reeks with corruption.

Boise State would crush either of those teams on a neutral field. One bad quarter knocked them down to the Vegas bowl against Utah, where the masterminds could bury their talent in a meaningless bowl. Enjoy the victory now, Auburn, because it’s gone as soon as they find the money.

I think Oregon wins. Auburn does not have the dominating defense that we’ve seen out of past BCS Champions from the SEC. In fact, their defense is average at best. And I don’t care what all the draft experts say. I think Fairley is overrated. Georgia was able to contain him so I’m sure Oregon will have no problem either. In all fairness, there’s not much any defensive lineman can do against Oregon’s fast paced offense. Most of you probably haven’t seen them play. They are the real deal.

The SEC was decidedly down this year and Auburn benefitted. I think this is the year the SEC run finally comes to an end.

When I have talked to regular guys over the last few months (aka: not Auburn fans or media types who have a personal interest in pumping up internet/radio ad sales or TV ratings) there have been two common themes: 1) Cam Newton is a heck of a player 2) He still should have been found ineligible. This comes from tons of different conversations with tons of different regular fans from various different schools. Most people have a ton of respect for Cam Newton as a player, but don’t respect at all what is happening in letting him still play. It goes beyond jealousy to justice. Most of your regular guys out there are not respecting this championship as counting anymore than Mark McGwire’s record counted. Common sense was thrown out the window, and the NCAA has proven yet again to be sorely inconsistent. This deal went down on the tail of lawyer speak in the long line of deals where good old fasioned common sense knows better: a) Bill Clinton – I did not have sexual relations with that woman b) OJ Simpson – If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit c) Barry Bonds – I thought it was just the “clear” d) Auburn/NCAA – Cecil Newton solicited the money, but didn’t agree to take the money.

I was impressed by Oregon’s defense last night too. They shut Newton down Big-Time in the rushing game. It was a pass-heavy game plan in the first half, Malzahn knew they would be stacking the box against the run. How about Michael Dyer, running hard between the tackles all night, then he busts a big one on maybe the strangest run ever. Just goes to show you there were other players on our team this year that contributed besides Cam Newton. Oregon’s D did what no SEC defense (Other than MSU) could do all year: Shut down Cam’s running game.

What about TattooGate at OSU? Play for TV Bowl but not early games next year? Seriously? And AJGreen JerseyGate? And Babyblue NC StarsGate, and ….? There is NO (I mean ZEE-ROW) consistency in punishment and investigation rules at the NCAA ivory tower. It has to be fixed now.

That was a really good game. I pulled for AU despite being a dawg fan but they played well enough to win. Was still disappointed and angry with Fairly and Smith for a couple of uncalled for cheap shots during the game. It was good to see a couple of teams really go for it on the big stage….4th downs, fake punts etc as opposed to kicking the field on 4th and a foot at the three after a 95 yard drive against UCF.

If that had been us last night tied at 19 with two seconds to go on the two, we probably would have taken a knee and gone to overtime.

What was the spread in the game? Was it about 3 or 3 1/2? I don’t bet, but couldn’t help but think what was going through some folks’ minds there at the end when AU was trying to decide to kick the field goal, go for a td or run some clock as they did. That had to be pretty gut wrenching for the gamblers. It worked out and AU won all its games this year, but I can’t help but think with 10 seconds to go that you might not want to run Newton a couple of times and use your time outs. That sure was scary. I’d rather put the game in CN’s hands than the kicker, even though the kicker is very good. I had a very uneasy feeling until it went through the uprights.

A football player, like anyone else, should be defined first by his character. Character is not defined by a presumption of innocence. Defiance in the face of controversy and in the context of unanswered questions is not special. Just go down to your local courthouse and you can see it any work day of the week. I would think the NCAA and the SEC could set a higher bar. I have long since given up on the media. It is my prayer that that this one will not be swept under the rug, notwithstanding the current efforts to the contrary. I fear there is more at stake than television ratings and the salaries of Mr. Barnhart and Mr. Newton.

All you have to do is look at the USC/Reggie Bush situation. The NCAA is very deliberate. And the dog and pony show of AU suspending Scam just before the SECC game just for the NCAA to say we have nothing yet and reinstate him…what a joke. The FBI is the one holding up the investigation, not the NCAA. When the FBI is done with the sensitive information it has, it will be turned over the NCAA. The NCAA can’t have that info now because it would damage the case against McGregor and Lowder. Enjoy now Barners, because your beloved MNC just came at a VERY heavy price. Ask USC.

UGA has won 4 out the last 5 games vs. AU. You guys got beat by Joe Cox for God sakes! Now will AU beat UGA again in 2011? Probably, because our program is in the crapper. But don’t let the National Title “Rose Colored Glasses” cloud the fact that you guys have been anything but dominant vs. UGA the last 5 years; which is pretty pathetic when you consider that UGA has been playing some of the worst football it its history as of late( especially on defense).

Also, Kentucky has been a very underrated team the last few years. They have the talent to beat you if you don’t play well against them. I don’t exactly recall AU blowing them out of the water earlier this year.

Clearly AU was the better team, and if it wasn’t for some dropped passes and poor throws, they would have won by more. Frankly, I was surprised Oregon was so soft physically, but they did make some gutsy calls (faked punt/long pass from their goal line).

If all you geniuses and sore losers have some PROOF that AU cheated, please send it to the NCAA. Also, if you have PROOF that Cam Newton was aware and participated in the shakedown of MSU, again, please forward it to the NCAA in Kansas City. Otherwise, your bloviations become tiresome.

So Ohio St. can go back to being dominated by true SEC schools,(Ark. is hybrid,as they are just waiting to bolt to an inferior new SWC).And AU can just now wait for the truth to come out to bury your heads in shame once again.See they have never had a great year without controversy or probation.So go ahead and gloat now the true champion OREGON will be crowned in a couple years

Not enough is said about Newton’s articulation and attitude. Auburn is a better place because of him whether he cheated or not. I to this day have a very hard time thinking he cheated, who back then would pay this guy 180,000 for a one year and done, where was he on anybody’s radar, no one in his right mind would have seen this year unfold back then. This kid in one year left more good will than most of these hot shots leave in the two or three years they country club at places like Athens or Knoxville. More should be said about the sorry characters that hang around these other programs that are so determined to point out the splinter in the other teams eye. I think winning still takes character more than speed. Cam Newton has both.

Congratulatons to Auburn and way to bring it back to the SEC.

The game itsself was sloppy, the teams were sloppy playing, the officiating was not that good, and the playing field seemed to be the worst it has ever been for a BCS Title. On the opening kickoff an Auburn player slides and injures his knee. Players were slipping and sliding all over the field on each play.

The NCAA can do a better job than this, and the 37 day layoff is part of the problem.

One question. This was brought up by Herbie and Musberger, why did Auburn not want Cecil Newton at the game last night? he reportedly watch from a room at a local hotel. Just makes you wonder if this is really over. Seems like there is still some burning embers around this investigation.

Enjoy War Eagles. It make be taken away soon, or later. And Cam is gone NFL with Thuga Fairley. Again more dirty play by Fairley.

I really hope all the AU haters waiting for probation don’t hold your breath. Even with proof that a booster gave 6 figures to Mr Newton’s church, AU didn’t do it, the money wasn’t given to Cam, and I’d bet that Cam was smart enough not to sign his name to anything.

All you SEC haters who are having your moment pointing out that UGA (or UT or whomever else you hate) sucked this year…in 2008 AU went 5-7, tied for last place in the entire conference, didn’t even go to a toilet bowl, and yet was just a couple of years away from a national title.

Congrats to AU for a great game and maintaining SEC dominance of the BCS.

Congrats to Auburn. The best team did win. All those tiders I lived with for 25 years can now croak since their championship is now a thing in the past.

I have heard very little about the pitiful “new” turf in the game. The quality of the game was severely impacted by the slippery turf for both teams. I don’t think it would have made a difference, but you expect better from the game for all the “gold bars”. Also Mooseburger is the worst. As much as I can’t stand Satan his analysis was probably the best.

At least everyone got to see what SEC folks have been saying about the Barn and “god” being behind them. Eric Smith beat the snot out of some dude in a hotel parking lot, then kicked an Oregon player in the head. Nick Fairley pulled his usual antics again. The game itself was the biggest derp-fest in MNC history. Both QBs tried to give the game away: Cam with the pick, the poor 4th down pass into the end zone, and the fumble; Thomas with the multiple INTs (what was he THINKING on the one Etheridge picked?) and overall inaccuracy. The game was tied thanks to the referee knocking down a Barn defender and lost on a play with a minute left where all 22 players stood around looking at each other with their thumbs in their rears until the back ran the ball into FG range. Oregon’s vaunted offense has now averaged 13.5 ppg in two BCS games- hopefully we won’t have to hear about them any more. Like Tony said, the Barn will enjoy this one, but it was a fitting end to a very odd college season.

If Fairley was just a dirty-playing thug, he wouldn’t have the Lombardi trophy on his shelf.

The 15 yards and 1st down he will cost his team once a game is a small price compared to what he does to the opponent’s offense. Bet your a** if UGA had a DT like that, we’d be singing his praises.

“…why did Auburn not want Cecil Newton at the game last night?…” Old news. After the investigation, Newton Sr was banned from the program and the campus. He would only be a distraction to Cam and the team; as evidenced by anyone asking about him.

I am an Auburn alum. I am happy for the team and for the university. The 30-year rein of “Boss Lowder” has ended, and maybe Lowder and some of his minions will end up in jail. Newton is the best football player I have ever seen, but I really don’t care for his posturing and post game self absorption, which I chose not to watch. I recall Johnny Unitas walking off the field after that great championship in 1958. In comparison, Newton is silly and childish. It will be interesting to see how he fares in the NFL.

@collegeballfan,

Oregon’s defense isn’t very good either, yet they pretty much stuffed Auburn. I don’t see it as some representation of the conference, after all Oregon had no problem putting up close to 50 on Tennessee. I see it as both teams did not benefit from the time off very well. Neither teams offense was playing very well last night. They both looked pretty rusty and nervous. If we didn’t get over a month wait for this game then I think we might have seen a much more explosive game.

I’ll take plenty away from them. Any team that has to run the spread on theor own 1 yard line and theor opponent’s 1 yard line because they can’t block is a fraud. I have to say, Stanford looked like a much better team than Oregon to me. Oregon’s QB can’t pass the ball consistently at all.

I love college football/basketball, but I am fast becoming a pro-football/basketball fan. The NCAA has created a culture of corruption and exploitation of young men. “Student athletes” work 24/7 to make millions for their “Universities” and get paid nothing. Just watch a game and listen to how much of the talk is, suspended, on probation, sold a jersey, father asked for money, promises to come back, etc. It is sad that we have reached this low point in college athletics. Don’t blame teams that win championships, blame an organization that has made a mockery of integrity. The NCAA is the most hypocritical self-serving organization in the country. Kudos to Auburn from this Dawg fan. Who cares if you might have cheated the NCAA’s corrupt self-serving rules.
Let’s hope that at some point Universities will thumb their noses at the NCAA and eliminate this charade they call college athletics.

Sorry you fell for that, but every responsible person knows that the Cam Newton investigation is over. it was finished and wrapped up on December 2nd when the NCAA declared Newton “eligible without condition”.

In the meantime, Auburn is the National Champ, Cam Newton won the Heisman, Nick Fairley won the Lombardi award, Gus Malzahn won the Boyles award as the nation’s top assistant coach and Gene Chizik is National Coach of the Year. That’s pretty much a clean sweep!

As an SEC fan, and, as a Christian, I find the whole Auburn fiasco an embarassment. The existing by-laws should’ve kept Newton off the field. The preaching done by Chizik and Cam after the game was, well, take it for what you want to, but, I think God honors those who acknowledge their sin and repent, not lie and lawyer up. IF Chizik and Cam want to be examples, they should fess up, ARK should be crowned SEC champs, and, Oregon and TCU play for the Nat title. The NCAA has proven itself both selective and spineless and, finally, were it not for three horrible calls, Oregon would’ve easily beaten Auburn. This season leaves a sick feeling in the stomach of most college football fans, most all with the exception of those who bleed orange and blue . . . I assume the truth will eventually come out and this will turn out to be a big black eye in what was a great run by the SEC, unfortunately, one team, Auburn, decided to ruin it all . . .

Hahahaha! Dawgbreath, I see you have been reading some of Thayer Evan’s drivel. He’s a proven liar, you know. Sorry you fell for that, but every responsible person knows that the Cam Newton investigation is over. it was finished and wrapped up on December 2nd when the NCAA declared Newton “eligible without condition”.…MikeP

Mike, let me say this slowly for you.

There is one committee that deals with player eligibility issues. They, based on evidence in front of them, cleared Cam to play.

There is another committee called the Committee on Infractions (COI). They investigate institutional compliance. We don’t know what they are or aren’t investigating, but there were quotes from contractors acknowledging that NCAA investigators had questioned them.

I’m not saying it is or isn’t “over”, but the Barn should not assume that it is. Also, you never offered your theory as to why a national writer for Fox would have it in for the Barn.

Great game. Except for the slippery turf part. Somebody needs to be fired over that one.

Other things that stood out for me:

Urban Meyer: I have been on his case, calling him over rated and lame. The guy is pretty sharp and clearly has a TV career in front of him if he wants it. I gave him the edge over Saban on TV appeal. Better dressed too.

BUT WOULDN’T YOU HAVE LIKED TO BE A FLY ON THE WALL…watching the game with Urban and Saban in the same room. That must have been classic.

Other than that, somebody in pregame nailed the essence of the SEC dominance saying it was the size and athleticism of the D-line in the SEC that sets them apart. Not just team speed.

Great game Auburn and Oregon.

What a we do on Saturdays now?

General, Au scored immediately after Orgegon picked the ball off, but, it was called a non-pick. The safety came after a bogus motion call. Oregon has run that play all year where they snap it wide in the shotgun, Oregon’s coch was livid over that one and rightly so. And, the play that put AU in field goal position was bogus, the officiating crew stopped, a whilstle had apparently been blown, the Oregon defense stopped, and Auburn was given the game. I guess that was NCAA orders as well! This whole season was a joke. On the third bad call that set up the field goal, I don’t know if the AU player was down or not, I do know that most of the officiating crew and the Oregon defense stopped as if a whistle had been blown. A sour way to end an embarassing season!

Dooley, you thought Urb’s analysis was better than Saban’s? Really? I thought he looked like a cluster up there. Saban didn’t do anything spectacular, mind you (he’s kinda boring that way), but Urban just didn’t come across well to me. Wish I can remember what it was now, but he made one really stupid comment in the post-game.

**To Crime does pay: “As an SEC fan, and, as a Christian, I find the whole Auburn fiasco an embarassment.”

First of all, it hasn’t been an “Auburn fiasco”. The problem was with Miss. State, or do you not read? Auburn simply recruited a Jr. College quarterback, and did it with NO violations. The Ncaa, the Sec, and the Fbi has found no wrong doing BY AUBURN.

” I think God honors those who acknowledge their sin and repent, not lie and lawyer up.” So YOU are judge and jury as to who has been truthful right? Let me quote YOU a verse… “Judge not, and ye shall not BE judged” I’d be more careful with my words if I were you.

“I assume the truth will eventually come out and this will turn out to be a big black eye in what was a great run by the SEC, ” Guilty until proven innocent….. that’s the montra. Based on gathered facts, the truth has already come out…. You just refuse to see it, because it doesn’t fit into your desires for your team.

Auburn deserved the National Championship. Period.

Don’t get me wrong Bama Dude, I would take Saban over Urban in a heartbeat. And yes, Urban did stare at his little pad too much. He made a couple of good points on momentum shifts. You also have to take into account the fact the Saban is still coaching and had to be more guarded in his comments.

Either way, I thought that was the best pregame commentary I’d seen in years with the two of them breaking down the spread offense and the up-tempo style. The two hour pregame, not the 30 minute deal.

I just fast forwarded everything but those guys and got through it in 30 minutes. It was great representation for the SEC to have them there

I know it must make you and the others like you feel better about yourselves and your slightly glorified high school atmosphere you have there in Athens to take your daily whizzes on Auburn’s success. And as the days and months and years go by and Auburn keeps its trophy because it earned it and did nothing wrong to get it you haters will slowly die off one by one until you are all gone and we will finally be rid of you and your pathetic, venemous, unsubstantiated whinings. We will cheer for your team if and when you and your program puts on the big boy pants again and proves worthy to compete for the national championship. Going 6 and 7 and LOSING to mighty Central Florida is not a good start, however. Of course it is all pure speculation as to if and when you will be able to reach that level.

OK – lets break down the horrible calls

the non-INT – granted it was very close, but the OU player did NOT have control of the ball as he left the field of play….great play on his part, but he came up short on it being an INT.

The motion penalty – I remember it being called, but I didn’t see a replay on it – can’t comment

The Dyer run – He was not down, he rolled over the defenders body, and the only thing that touched the ground besides his feet was his non-ball-carrying hand….All good UT fans will remember a very similar play against Memphis in 1996 that cost us that game. I didn’t hear a whistle, and had there been one, the refs should have caught it on the video review.

and for Driving – you’re right….the condition of the field was beyond bad…it was downright dangerous for the players….someone needs to address that for future games.

I agree as well. Not too many flags like almost every other bowl. And I was thankful they didn’t slow the game down with unnecessary reviews. Most people at home can watch one replay and make a decision. In previous bowls, they slowed the games down way too often for unnecessary reviews.

And yes, Auburn got some fortuitous bounces, the last long run being one of them. I was rooting for the SEC but was a little disappointed that the game might be decided on a lucky freak play. But it seems like every NC team has that kind of luck at some point in the season.

Pete,
Get a life what a Cam Newton brings to Auburn is chump change compared to what you paid to send your kids there. BTW why not go in state get the hope and not pay that tuition? Your kids made a choice just like these football players do. Why not pay them is my point, eliminate this garbage about them being amateur athletes and pay them for their work. Just a case in point. My two kids got paid to play in the pep band at their college. Real money they could spend not a scholarship or tuition money. So we can pay band kids, but we can’t pay the basketball players they are playing music for? How can we keep up this charade? The NCAA is to blame that is my point. I coached football, played for Lloyd Carr. It is a job to be a college D1 athlete. You are broke, many don’t come from good economic situations, you can’t work to earn spending money because you practice year round and then you see kids in the band getting fed, paid etc. Give me a break. Quit whining about how much you paid for your kids to go to college and donate your money to your favorite college athletic program so you can buy tickets next year and watch a bunch of kids who don’t get paid be exploited by their respective athletic program and the NCAA and feel good about yourself because you had to pay for your kid to go to college and these guys don’t.

Last year it was the toothless Bama fans coming over here to gloat, now it’s a combination of War Tiger and Tech fans. In any case, they’re all clueless. I have to laugh at the Tech fans who are vicariously living through Auburn’s victory.

Auburn’s NC will have a * next to it following the completion of both the NCAA and FBI investigations. Now that Mike Slive can say the SEC has one another National Championship, he’ll follow his own rules of eligibility and declare Cam Newton ineligible to play in 2011. He’ll wash his hands like Pontius Pilot.

Wonder..I am not making judgement I am stating facts. He was arrested for possessing the stolen laptop. He was caught cheating three times at FL and was close to being expelled not to mention the 15 traffic citations HE got all by himself while in Gainesville. Throw in the pay for play that yes he knew about and in my opionion makes him a cheater. So you have a thief & a cheater sounds like a good human being to me.

Give it up Dawg fans. The Auburn folks on here are right. Both the NCAA and SEC have investigated. Both have told us that they know Cecil asked for money in return for Cam’s playing. Both the NCAA and the SEC have said it is ok that Cecil asked for money. Someone at Auburn read the SEC and the NCAA rules and correctly determined that Cam was ineligible (anyone who can read would reach that conclusion, especially as to the SEC rule in question). Then both the NCAA and SEC decided it is ok that Cecil asked for money as long as Cam did not know Cecil asked for money. Now you can argue all day long that his knowledge , or lack of knowledge, is irrelevant under the rules, but you will lose because both the NCAA and SEC are going to continue to ignore the technical wording of the rules, especially the SEC rule. Therefore, even-though someone at Auburn correctly read and interpreted the rule, both the NCAA and SEC decided not to enforce the rule. And that’s the end of the deal. Auburn will not, and should not, be required to forfeit this National Championship because their player was allowed to play by both the NCAA and SEC.

Congrats for continuing the run of now 5 straight SEC champs as NC.

All the while, UGA is trending downward and wallows in mediocrity at the hands of CMR.

Congrats again to Auburn. Sadly, UGA is a non-factor in the SEC and apparently the AD and University administration don’t have the cahonies to do anything about it expect keep giving CMR another chance.

Jake – What is all this nonsense about Auburn winning in
1957, Ohio STate was the champion.
Well, Jake it was kinda like in 1942, when the AP awarded
Ohio STate the NC (AP awarded after season end and not
bowl win.) OSU was invited to play Georgia in the Rose
Bowl for the NC, and OSU declined. Georgia beat UCLA
and was awarded the NC by the Harris poll which awarded
after bowl game. Depends on which bowl you want to consider.

Bama Dude. Referring to the 1957 Auburn team: All NC are mythical until we have a playoff. The system is run by money yet they can’t pay the players. It’s like slavery.

Texas had football revenue of $98 million or so and roughly $63 million was profit. It’s a slave industry driven by money with a political beauty pageant at the end. We have to vote for NC. Anytime you use the word vote you imply politics. Long answer I know but this BCS crap stinks.

The NFL complains that two weeks is too much time to wait to play the Super Bowl and the BCS waits 5 weeks so it can run its stupid little scam against the fans.

Sorry. Had to rail on the system again. Gimme a playoff anyday.

Another ‘whining’ dawg checking in…although I had Auburn in my bowl pool, it didn’t take long before I was pulling for Oregon. Watching the, I think we’re calling it, ‘thuggery’ on the part of the team ‘that we don’t coach like that’ employs (so I guess it’s just in their genes) brought back memories of our game with Auburn that, forever, changed my attitude about those guys. Our rivalry had for decades been labeled as ‘respectful’…our programs turn-around when Joel Eaves and Vince Dooley came to town and ‘made us whole again’ made me, forever, grateful. But this Auburn team has ended that, as I said, forever.

Given that the AU kid – forget which miscreant it was – kneed the Oregon kid in the head, and all it got was a 15 yard penalty, seems to me that such behavior ought to be ‘reviewable’ from the booth. They saw it and if ever there was a reason to eject a player from a game, that was it.

Enjoy your ‘championship’ while you can guys, cause it will be even more ’short-lived’ than the USC one was – in other words, it ain’t gonna take four years to settle this mess about the Newtons…and besides, all that NC-labeled stuff is gonna be real ‘collector’s items’ one of these days, plus you’ll have your memories of how much fun it was to have experienced it – even if it does all end up like a dream or something.

At the same time, I’m not so certain that Cam and Nick won’t be coming back, you guys just may decide to ‘out-bid’ those NFL pikers.

Ready to Eat,

What game where you watching. Auburn won the game on a bad call. No man is ever gonna own up to a game decided on a bad call.

37 additional yards at that stage was huge. Auburn had 13 drives. The last was the second longest (73). In the second half, Auburn had 6 drives 60, 23, 43, 37, 11, 75. Take away the bad call drive and Auburn’s 2nd half avg is 34.8. So what does all this mean.

Drive length 75 yds minus the bad call 37 yards =’s 38 yards add 17 yards to any field goal (10 for end zone, 7 for spot)=’s 55 yards. Are you kidding me. 55 yds in a NC game. No way.

The bad call based on Auburn’s average in the second half gave Auburn a MUCH BETTER chance at winning. A wrist is a wrist. And the thing about it, in college football the booth can take as long as they wish.

James didn’t seem to hold a grudge against his friendly rival, whom he met on the awards circuit and chatted with briefly after the game.

Of course there needs to be a playoff.

Based on the bowl games I’d say Stanford would have been a team nobody wanted to play.

Make no mistake, Auburn won in spite of Cam Newton, not because of him. It was one of the worst performances by a quarterback in a championship game that I can remember. One of the reasons was a very good game played by the Oregon defense, but all those missed wide-open receivers, no ability to run, and of course fumbling when the game was on the line added another very disappointing performance by a Heisman winner. No, this game belongs to the defense, and who would have thought that a few months ago. Congrats Auburn and soak it in!

Bama Dude I agree with you somewhat on Fairley. He’s a great player but he needs to quit with all the nonsense. There’s a big difference between trying to intimidate the defense, and taking a cheap shot. It’s hard to defend what he did but I almost think he’s trying to get in the opponent’s head and play mind games with the OL. Either way it gives Auburn a black eye and I wish he would cut out all the garbage. Still a force to be reckoned with though as we saw last night.

Tony,

All this is going to do is make Saban have extra motivation to win, the same for Muschamp at Florida, Mullen at Mississippi St, and Ricth at Georgia.

There are coaches behind the scenes who you know are still scratching their heads as to why many of the early or preseason rulings were made so harshly while the black cloud over Auburn only got brighter while under the watchful eye of the NCAA.

Not taking anything away from Auburn for what they did on the field, they outplayed everyone 14 up and 14 down, but the behind the scenes outlook from their SEC brethren are lining up behind their AD’s to really question some of the outcomes and the rulings.

I think it is interesting, although not surprising, that Newton Sr was at the game last night. Even after Mark Brandley on his blog and Brent on the broadcast spoke very sternly about how the Dad was not at the game. You see the rules don’t apply to the Newtons, not to the good reverend nor to the son (witness the 11-13 traffic violations in Gainesville). So that mutual agreement with Auburn not to attend? Well it just didn’t matter to Newton Sr. OK Auburn officials you are now officially free to cluck, cluck and tsk,tsk about how sad it is that the good reverend did not uphold his end of the bargain. Is anyone surprised??? The apple does not fall very far from the tree.

First of all congrats to Auburn for a game well played and
one of if not the best BCS Championship game played, 2nd
we UGA fans watch another SEC team win a BCS Championship
and our program loses to UCF, UfreakinCF in the toilet bowl
and yall still think we have the man to lead us to the BCS
Championship, I say again what has UF,BAMA,LSU,and now AU
done that seperates them from us? They hired guys that in
3yrs or less won BCS TITLES! Everyone keeps saying that if
CMR wins 10 games he will have turned the program around
and should keep his job i say Bull, 11yrs and all the talent
CMR has had ZERO BCS Championships or better yet ZERO BCS
Championship games, if CMR does not win the BCS next year he
should be FIRED, my piont is do we really want another year
of this BS @ UGA i say no. CMR=no coaching, no inspiration,
soft as charmin,no heart,terrible evaluator of talent, had
a good program and now not very good,CMB bad @ everything
and was not a good QB in college but is our OFF CORD, no
emphasis on special teams(LIKE BEAMER @ VA TECH), did
anybody else see our boys looking confused in our bowl
ie several guys on the offensive line holding their hands
out and looking around like WTF,if you didn’t go back and
look @ the game again as pianful as that sounds, all of
this is unacceptable to me and should be for all bulldawg
nation, i uderstand if i don’t send in my donations all of
the programs suffer but how can i continue to send my hard
earned dollars for this inferior product that CMR keeps
putting on the field? Bulldawg Nation should not stand for
this, what are we to do FANS, we are the laughing stock of
the SEC and the VOLS will mess around and win another BCS
title before we do (the Vols have passed us too). So
congrats to LSU,BAMA,UF and now WAR EAGLE for doing what
the Dawgs hired CMR to do 11yrs ago, 6 BCS championships
have been won in that time frame in the SEC and the DAWGS
have Zero of them. Sorry for the rant just tired of seeing
this BS peroid…. *CONGRAULATIONS AUBURN 2010 BCS CHAMPS*

just think back during the hay days @ FSU, they would lose a game
that they should have won during the year and get knocked out of
the top 10 then go on a tear and by the end of the year FSU would
be the best team in the country but not win the NC. go back and
look before the BCS @ how many times FSU finished #2 nuff said.

“Mike, let me say this slowly for you.

There is one committee that deals with player eligibility issues. They, based on evidence in front of them, cleared Cam to play.

There is another committee called the Committee on Infractions (COI). They investigate institutional compliance. We don’t know what they are or aren’t investigating, but there were quotes from contractors acknowledging that NCAA investigators had questioned them.

I’m not saying it is or isn’t “over”, but the Barn should not assume that it is. Also, you never offered your theory as to why a national writer for Fox would have it in for the Barn.”

I’ll type slowly so hopefully, even a bammer can understand: We do know what the Committee on Infractions is NOT investigating. Before an investigation can begin, the institution must be sent a PLOI (Preliminary Letter of Inquiry). Auburn has received no such letter, therefore no investigation.

A couple of months ago,Thayer Evans started on his anti-Auburn/Cam Newton crusade because he was pushing the Boise State QB for the Heisman. As his efforts became more and more futile, his lies became more outrageous. His statement that NCAA investigators were in Georgia Christmas week is laughable.
You do know that Thayer Evans spent a week lurking around the Auburn campus trying to prove that Cam Newton doesn’t go to class, right? Several students caught pictures of him hiding behind bushes on their cell phones. The guy is at Fox.com because he was fired from the New York Times for manufacturing stories and presenting them as facts. The leopard hasn’t changed his spots.

The NCAA has filed the Newton investigation away and moved on. You Bamzos and Dawgs would be well served to do the same.

Ask the Michigan contingent about the strength of the SEC’s middle-tier. If anything there wasn’t a whole lot of difference between the top 5 teams in the SEC West. Missy State blew Florida and Michigan out and lost to the Barn by a FG. In fact the Barn won the division by beating all of those other four teams in close games. The SEC waa by far the deepest conference this year, hands down.

Hey ‘blackout’, my point was that the ‘knee’ thing should have been grounds for ejection and since the refs didn’t call it – I think herbie did – that kind of ‘thuggery’ should result in an ejection (worse than throwing a punch, don’t you think) and should be ‘reviewable’.

As for whatever we did to ‘celebrate’ an important win over you guys a couple of years ago, while you may find it ‘dis-tasteful’ (kinda like how we felt gettin’ ‘hosed down’ all those years ago at your place) it wasn’t dirty play intended to injure – that’s ‘thuggery’ to me, and you guys have become the poster boys for it. For a moment there last night it looked like the ‘classier’ team just might pull it out – you know the one that didn’t mug, and preen, and show their lack of class all night long.

Also, and even though I had intended ‘not’ to bring this up, you folks can be proud that you included young Mr. Dyer in your pay-for-play parlay last year – or more accurately, late ‘09 – cause he saved your bacon all night long. Without his strong ‘inside’ running, AU’s FU’d. Nobody ever said you folks didn’t know the value of good football players. But tell me AU fans, if when the final verdict is in on Cam/Gate and you have to relinquish all these ‘awards’, how will you feel about it? Embarrassed? Ashamed? Remorseful? No? Oh, I get it, that’s what ‘All In’ means…regardless of whether they were paid to play, you’re all in this thing together – right or wrong, cheatin’ or playin’ it straight. It’s kinda like when a guilty defendant’s attorney says to him, ‘regardless if you did it or not, you’ve got to act as if you’re innocent and do and say things as if you actually were…get it?’

I called Jones dirty play dirty. Even though II felt that AJ’s suspension did not fit the crime I still said he deserved it for being stupid. We did not let AJ play while the investigation was going on whereas you guys were all in with Newton. I promise you if Fairley played for us I would call him dirty and would implore our coaches to coach him up on that aspect of his game. I would call him a punk because that is what he is no matter how good of a player he was. Auburn fans on the other hand would never admit that any of their players were dirty or punks. Just like the Auburn player who planted his knee up the side of an Oregon players head and said “what, me?”. You hypocrite coach teaches and tolerates that type of behavior. The only reason Fairley got called for his antics was because the officiating crew had no dog in this fight and called it for what it was. Your coach has no class.

I simply said that most of the SEC teams were mediocre this year. And you know that they were. That has nothing to do with other conferences. The 5-5 record indicates that they did not light up the rest of the football world on all fronts. Ummmm?

Doofus, nobody else had ten teams in bowls. This is naturally going to create some mismatches for the bottom few. The four and six seeds beat two Big 10 teams, including one of the co-champions, by a combined 80 points (roughly- not sure about the exact Missy State score). USCe was the sixth seeded SEC bowl team; it just so happens that the top 5 were in the other division. What are you possibly basing your argument on?

Mindy,

I don’t even follow Auburn football, and yet I obviously know more about the team than you do. Explain why Auburn’s recruiting has dropped off so precipitously immediately after winning a National Championship?

That tells you how much difference there is between Auburn fans’ view of this “magical season” versus the opinion of the potential recruits. Any other program would see an up-tick in recruiting just for making it to the BCSCG, much less winning it. I don’t have the details regarding who Auburn has payed to play in the past 2 years, but they’d better be careful about what they do this year.

Oh, you people fretting about the SEC allowing cheating and…wait for it….worrying about the example it sets for your children (isn’t that YOUR job?) are hilarious.

I’m not a fan of either of the teams that played for the national championship but allow me to remind you (or inform you, since most of you are just so hyped on things you hear but never bother to investigate them for yourselves) about the fact that LaMichael James (Heisman candidate, key player for Oregon, leading rusher) played for the national championship.

Big deal about that?

He was arrested for trying to CHOKE HIS GIRLFRIEND.

So….wait. Let me get this right – you’re all up in arms because Cam Newton’s DAD attempted to get money for his son to play there – but no money exchanged hands. An NCAA violation, at the worst. Not criminal, just stupid. Didn’t actually hurt anyone and certainly didn’t set some stupid precedent on how your children view football players, for heavens sake.

But domestic violence, hurting another human being, a man hurting a woman and STILL being eligible to win the Heisman, being allowed to play (both by Oregon, PAC-10, and the NCAA) regardless of this and oh yeah, it’s NEVER talked about on ESPN is….not as bad?

Region is an odd one. He went to a press conference to commit to Bama, then shocked his family and everyone else by committing to the Barn.

Now, before anyone starts squawking about the SEC’s sort of average performance in bowl games so far this year, please know that SEC teams face teams that, on average, are seeded 2 places higher in their conferences, then the SEC team. For instance, the ACC’s North Carolina and Florida State beat the SEC’s Tennessee and South Carolina in the Music City and Chick-fil-A Bowls this year. However, consider that Tennessee was the #9 team from the SEC facing UNC, #6 from the ACC. And, South Carolina was SEC #5 vs Fl. State — ACC #2 (thanks for the numbers fix Mike). This is commonly what the SEC is up against. Not complaining; just stating the facts for the record.

Final 2010-2011 Conference Bowl Records:

* Mountain West: 4-1 — wow, once again, making a statement
* Big East: 4-2
* SEC: 5-5
* ACC: 4-5
* Big 12: 3-5
* Big Ten: 3-5
* Pac-10: 2-2
* Sun Belt: 2-1
* C-USA: 2-4
* WAC: 2-2
2010 – 2011 Bowl Bids by Conference:

* SEC: 10 [tied record (set by ACC in 2009; SEC in 2010) for most bowl bids by a conference in a single season.]
* ACC: 9
* Big Ten: 8

What the AU fans, along with a few othere (albeit very few), fail to realize is that the backlash against AU is not about UGA or BAMA, or anyone else. Its about integrity, something that AU faithful, the good rev. bishiop newton, “Mr. Cameron Newton” (as AUaccountant says), Nick “I play dirty not fairley” fairley, don’t understand. College football fans are upset becuase the SEC and the NCAA sold out. There were bad calls, on intereceptions, motions calls, and an AU running back was allowed to walk down the field after he and everyone else knew he was down. Heck, even ESPN sold out but Herbstreet has a man crush on Cammie so we’ll forgive Herbie. I, for one, have lost most any interest I’ve had in what was once a great game played by student athletes. Yes, AU won the BCS, but it will forever be TAINTED, and, it may well be REVOKED. The most embarassing point of the night was when Chizik and “Mr. Cameron Newton” started preaching, and crediting God for their vicotry. My Bible says that God does not condone cheating, nor lyi,ng . . . it says He grants grace to those who acknowledge their wrongdoings. The best thing AU can do is come clean . . . but its a bit late. The post pointing out the similarities between 04 and 10 is so on the money. In 04 AU deserved to go but USC cheated and won. In 2010 TCU deserved to go but AU cheated and won. All we’re waiting on now is the sanctions and the stripping of the tainted title. Thanks Auburn, you are an embarassment to CFB and the SEC. Thanks NCAA, you’ve proven you’re more interested in a glamarous title game than rewarding young men who play hard and fair. And, finally, thanks refs, and ESPN, for showing what a bought and paid for game looks like with everyone on board. CFB is a mess and deserves a tainted champ, in that regard, AU is the fitting BCS winner! One question AU fans, in the long run, one day, what will you decide when asked if cheating was worth it?

But that’s the point. Inter-conference wins and losses are zero-sum and you are making this “mediocre” claim based on conference performance. A twelve team conference will have a total of 48 conference wins and 48 conference losses. Either everybody will be 4-4 (mediocre) or some will be better than others (almost always the case).

I think the point is that yes the SEC was down by comparison this year. There is no denying that a year where Florida, UGA and Tennessee are lucky to be hovering at or are below .500 then the conference is down. But, said that they won a majority of their bowl games and in fact did dominate the Big 10. Sure Ohio State beat Arkansas but it went down to the last second and if you asked any SEC fan, Arky even as good as they were this year are not the 2nd best team in the conference. No way Ohio State beats Bama or LSU in that game. As for Oregon, I think they played pretty darn well and could have won that game. I don’t see any need to bash them. I admire them for theway they play given they are undersized. I hope Auburn hasn’t cheated in that it denies them the claim to be NC’s.

I’ll type slowly so hopefully, even a bammer can understand: We do know what the Committee on Infractions is NOT investigating. Before an investigation can begin, the institution must be sent a PLOI (Preliminary Letter of Inquiry). Auburn has received no such letter, therefore no investigation.

“First, we don’t know if a PLOI has or hasn’t been received. Second, the comtractors obviously spoke to someone or else the story would have already been refuted.”

First, we do know a PLOI has not been received, because Alabama has a public freedom of information law and F-bomb would have been all over a PLOI before it cleared the post office.

Second, the contractors were named in the article? If not, they are from Evan’s imagination and an imaginary person cannot refute anything.

That’s what a match-up between the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country is supposed to look like.

If the selection process works as it should, there should not be a blow-out like the Gators’ 41-14 win over the Buckeyes in the 2007 BCS Game.

No one is “bashing” Oregon; they did play well, however, if we are gonna play “what-if” (as some on this board is want to do); then “what if” Cam had hadn’t overthrown 3 receivers who were wide open and headed for the end zone and “what if”Cam hadn’t missed that wide open receiver in the end zone, well then the score would’ve/could’ve been 21 points MORE for Auburn………..just saying…….

Can we ban yellow socks? All night long I kept thinking the referees were throwing flags…

People who are saying that Oregon couldn’t hang with the SEC obviously didn’t watch the game objectively. On the field last night, the two teams appeared to be quite evenly matched. Whether or not they were the two best teams in the nation is a subject that will be debated until the end of time.

People can and will speculate about what may or may not come from the FBI investigation into illegal activities related to gambling operations in the State of Alabama. But that’s all it is – speculation. Understand that it may all change next week or it may never change.

Same with the Newton issues. Most of the people who are raking Newton through the virtual mud will never believe in his innocence, regardless of any evidence provided. I said that way back in November and it’s still the case.

Now that there are no more Saturday football games, I guess I have to get back to working on the house and yard.

Hey AU75, that would all be great if legitimate, but Auburn’s “championship”*** is extremely tainted with the win at all costs, literally, both on & off the field. The dirty play on the field throughout the game last night (just ask the kid from Oregon with blood streaming down his face on the way to the locker room, from a knee to the side of the head, a proud moment indeed), and throughout the season has been embarrassing for Auburn, and the SEC, guess you guys don’t think so. Seems like you would be put in jail for assault if on the street, with what a number of the Auburn players have been doing on the field this year. Even the talking heads on TV last night were talking about how Auburn got every break on the field last night, including what should have been 3 players kicked out of the game, but were not, including Fairly (probably 3 other games as well, but he has not been kicked out of any of them, interesting) as well as during the season. From a fellow SEC fan from a different school, it is very embarrassing to the point of disgust how Auburn has lowered the standards of college football both on & off the field this year all in the name of winning, hope it was worth it. Auburn has managed to change college football for many of us. It is very sad, and disappointing that the NCAA, and Auburn have tainted this great game that millions of us love to the point of lowered enthusiasm, participation, and highly questionable integrity. It is also shameful how many times God was mentioned in the postgame comments by Auburn players, when even last night rules were broken, with Newton’s father in the stadium. It is a sad day indeed how jaded college football has become, with Auburn leading the way in a method not hardly ever seen, but hey they won it all, so guess it doesn’t matter how, just that they won, but please don’t include all of us from SEC schools in your “proud” moment. Millions of us, as seen on websites, blogs, and radio talk shows throughout the south, dare say the majority, are not proud of Auburn, rather disgusted how it came about on/off the field, with the “sudden,” “overnight,” turnaround this year, hmmmmm…..

I seriously doubt its a Bama fan with all the different posts and handles. The nastiest sniping has been between the AU and Dawg fans ever since the AU-UGA game. Most Bama fans on this blog really haven’t been overly concerned with Auburn’s success this year. The first thing I noticed on the first page was comments from a couple notable dawg fans about Cam, Fairley, and 24 seniors being lost and already looking forward to AU having a down year in 2011.

I congratulate you on your year and I’ve no desire to get in the way of you guys enjoying your day in the sun but I’m already thinking about 9 months from now rather than hatin on AU. I suspect most Bama fans feel the same way.

Even though we are arch-rivals I respect the Tide and would never wish awful things on your program or your university. I for one love it when both of us are ranked highly in the Iron Bowl.

a. When it goes out of bounds other than a kick that scores after touching the uprights or crossbar, when a ball carrier is out of bounds, or when a ball carrier is so held that his forward progress is stopped. When in question, the ball is dead.
b. When any part of the ball carrier’s body, except his hand or foot, touches the ground or when the ball carrier is tackled or otherwise falls and loses possession of the ball as he contacts the ground with any part of his body, except his hand or foot. …

I will say congratulations to the Auburn Tigers for winning the Title for the SEC. I have no ill will toward any player or coach at Auburn as I know the next 11 months and 20 some odd days that Auburn will hold bragging rights to the Trophy.
As a guy who worked in the football program at Alabama and had a birds eye view of our program for 4 years I know what it is like to be a champion and live with the hype that surrounds a program. The big test for Auburn will be to see how they handle their success now. Most kids fail at keeping the focus, it is a common thread among 18 to 22 year old kids. The people who will come out of the woodwork to offer everything under the sun will get more of these kids into issues than even Auburn fans can imagine, I have witnessed it first hand at two different major college programs, and the problem is there is nothing any coach can do about short of locking these kids in the dressing room of Jordon Hare Stadium.

As an Alabama fan I hope Auburn does not win another National Championship, but as a football fan I take my hat off to your tigers and say job well done.

Okay let’s say he was down just for the sake of argument. You think they were gonna stop us inside THE 40 yard line with a min. left? We would have driven into FG range and won anyway.

Keep it up though, I love to see you give all other reasonable, intelligent Bama Fans a bad name. Oh wait, there aren’t any rational, intelligent Bama fans, are there?

Just a recap.

Auburn had 6 drives in the second half, 75 on the last. The avg of the first five was 34.8. Take away the 37 yd gain and Auburn would have netted 38 yds, slightly above their avg. Remember they got 20 after the 37 yds.

So, Auburn begins at the 25 yd line. Add 38 and the kick would have come from 37 yd line. Add 17 for the kick (10 yds for endzone, 7 for spot). A 54 yd kick in a NC game. Show me where it has occured before.

Are you actually averaging the drives from the second half? Dyer went “down” (For argument’s sake) at the 47 yard line with 2:06 on the clock. All we needed was another 25 yards to get in FG range. The way Dyer was running at the end, no one was about to stop him. But it doesn’t matter because he wasn’t down in the first place, so your point is moot anyway LoL NATIONAL CHAMPS MULLET!!!!!

Hey Stupid Barnhart

January 11th, 2011

Give it Up,

Yes, the best predictor of the future is the past. 5 Auburn drives (the 5th drive a fumble by scam) and the avg was 34.8. The last drive minus the bad call was guess what….38 yds. Funny how those things work out. Scam had fumbled on last drive, was dazed.

How can you say Auburn would have gained another yd from that point. Yes, after the 37 yds Auburn got 20 but tell me OR players had the same fight after that bad call.

Auburn NATIONAL CHAMPS* forever.

His high school coach and a bama supporter Loren Young went to jail and the kids life was ruin??? Bama had another probation vacation????
You bama people need to get off this “cleaner than anybody stuff”.

Bottom Line: there’s too much smoke to not have fire with (S)cam Newton and Auburn. Congrats to Auburn on your BCS win….However, if there is one thing this entire situation has taught us, it’s this: “It is amazing what money can buy”. Cam is a tremendous athlete – no one disputes that fact. The issue I have with him runs deeper than just what he does on the field. The kid was kicked out of Florida for cheating on a test and being in possession of a stolen laptop – that’s a fact. It is also a fact that he never was going to Auburn….EVER….until “something happened” to change his mind. What that “something” is….is still to be determined.

My point is this: When you look at all the facts surrounding this guy (Cam), and when you stack it all up – the facts make this whole situation smell awful for Auburn. When you look at how he came to Auburn….when you look at why he came to Auburn…..when you see what his dad has done and learn about all the “shady dealings” going on around Auburn…it just looks really really bad for them. Eventually, everything about this will come to light. When it does, it will be a sad day on the “plains”…..

Congrats on your NC, Aubies!

You earned the interest on your mortgaged future, that’s for sure.

You had the best team that money could buy. Hope it was worth it…

Cammie’s daddy couldn’t make it to the game, huh? Missed the SECCG too, I hear. Oh well, I’m sure he was sad that he couldn’t be there…you know, what with how close he and his son are. Yep, a real close-knit family, those Newtons. But not as close as they could be I reckon…I mean, dad’s trying to work a university for some serious scratch (all for Cam’s benefit, of course) to get his sons’ signature on a LOI, but junior had no inkling..not a clue..what dear ole dad was up to? Huh? In a family that close?

Rrrrrrright!

Come on, ya’ll !?! I know your latest battle cry is “All In” but…

Well, it is what it is. Enjoy this one. You paid good money and a large chunk of what little integrity you had left for it, but hey, you got that trophy, right?

Don’t think you have the makings of the next SEC dynasty, though.

What were you guys last season? 8-5? 9-4?

Get used to those numbers because when Cammie and Nick leave for the NFL in April, that’s what you can expect to finish with in 2011.

Fairley was the best player on your otherwise average defense. This is a fact.

And Newton? There is not a living soul anywhere that doesn’t know the plain, irrefutable truth. Without him this year, you guys are 7-5, 8-4 tops. This too is a fact.

And he made Chizik look like a freakin’ genius. And we all know that ain’t true.

Ah, football on the plains. Mediocrity at it’s best.

UGA football has had it’s share of mediocrity, too. And we demand drastic improvement immediately.

Nope, he was at both, plus every game at Auburn this season. He agreed to “limited access” to the team, which I suppose means he couldn’t go in the locker room. Like the rest of us Auburn fans, he’s enjoyed this season immensely.

The rest of this stuff is nothing but sore-loser opposing fans and their wishful thinking. You can hope all you want to, but that stuff was all over on December 2nd.

to finish off the argument….

from espn tuesday morning quarterback posted 1/11/11

There’s a point that announcers often get wrong. At the high school, NCAA and NFL levels alike, it’s the action of the play, not the whistle, that ends the play: The whistle is only a signal to stop. If a player drops to the ground and the whistle doesn’t sound, then a defender pile-drives into the player, that can be flagged as a late hit — “late” despite no whistle, because the action of the play has ended the play. As Dyer was rolling over the Ducks’ defender, Oregon’s Zac Clark pulled up and did not dive into Dyer. Clark thought the action of the play had ended the play, and was avoiding a late hit. Had Clark driven his body into Dyer, the 37-yard run never would have occurred. But there’s a high likelihood officials would have thrown a flag for unnecessary roughness, judging the down was ended — though the replay booth later said the down had not ended

Then they try to wash it down with the standard mentally defective “I was kicked out of sixth grade” ghetto “comeback” …. they call anyone who notices the stench “haters” :-)

Barnyard is right about one thing … the “Family” will live with the smell of this for a long time .

When the truth comes out and AU is completely cleared,they will still spread the lies & false rumors. Heck, if the NCAA said right now they had solid evidence that Cam did nothing wrong and Auburn was not involved, these morons would still be on here spreading hate. The truth doesn’t matter to them, their jealousy has blinded them to the hilt. Better to just ignore them and let them fade into oblivion…….War Eagle!!

“Mike P read the National Story on Yahoo and get back with us. I bet similar to the “AU family” you have zero ethics. I hope you don’t have a job with responsibility. You would cut corners, cook the books, etc.”

Quoted from the Yahoo story: “Cecil Newton didn’t see his son Cam quarterback Auburn to an SEC title or win the Heisman Trophy. And he wasn’t supposed to see him play in Monday night’s BCS Championship Game either. It was all part of a punishment restricting the elder Newton to “limited access” to Auburn’s football program…”

This writer is full of it, sorry you got taken in by his line. Cecil has been at every Auburn game, including the SEC game. There is nothing wrong with that. Cecil has NOT been in the athletic dept. buildings or other places that a parent might go but that the general public is not invited into. That was the “limited access” deal and both Auburn and Cecil Newton have stuck to it.

Discuss ethics with the UGA players. With 12 arrests last year, that equaled 14% of all UGA scholarship players having been put behind bars in a single year. Woof!

You just listed a bunch of bitter writers who made the mistake of believing Thayer Evans. They all swallowed his bait and are now choking on it. Notice how, in the last month, they’ve all quietly moved on to other things?

Explain to me how the FBI is involved in this, please? Y’all sound like a bunch of third-graders on a playground shouting “I’m gonna tell the FBI on you…nah, nah, nah”. Here’s a clue: The FBI doesn’t enforce NCAA policy. For instance, the FBI doesn’t give a rat’s azz about Georgia’s Greene selling his jersey to an agent. That’s not a crime, it’s only a violation of NCAA policy, which is not an FBI concern.

As to Cecil Newton being at the BCS game…dudes, THINK. Put your blind rage at Auburn’s success aside for a moment and just think. That game was a public event. Auburn had control of 17,000 tickets. Auburn had no control over the remaining 61,000 tickets to that game. No way is Auburn expected to keep any individual out of the game, it’s not possible. That writer stating that Auburn should have kept Cecil Newton out of the stadium in Glendale is a perfect example of the idiot things that have been written. The writer, like several others, knows putting “Cam Newton” in his headline will increase readership so he does it. Truth, Justice and the American Way be dammed, bring on the hits to my website!

On Newton’s recruiting trips to the U. of Oklahoma, U. of Tennessee and Auburn University there was no mention of money. Kenny Rogers, who has been charged by the NFLPA for impersonating an agent and who, in November of 2009 was running from $11,000 in bad checks is the only connection with money talks. Cecil Newton made a mistake and listened to Rogers, but in the end no money changed hands.

The SEC office and Auburn University Compliance office investigated for ten months. The NCAA’s team of investigators worked the case for five months. There is nothing there.

The FBI talked briefly with Kenny Rogers, supposedly to determine if he could be charged with embezzlement for trying to get money from some wealthy Mississippi State boosters. Other than that, the FBI has no interest in the case.

The FBI investigates criminal activity. They do not give a flip if every player in the country sells his trinkets to an agent or if every school in the country pays players to attend their school. These things are against NCAA rules but they are not illegal.
Those of you waiting breathlessly for the FBI to “reveal” things about this need to adjust your thinking to the fact that the FBI is not conducting an investigation into violation of NCAA policies and they will not be doing so. They have their own responsibilities and could not care less about NCAA policy.

“The FBI investigates criminal activity.”

While I know many of your brethren makes you a plurality (idiots) … I will simply address you in the singular . After all .. since the argument is the same no matter which one speaks if you rebut one mouth breather’s argument you have pretty much rebutted them all .

The only CORRECT thing you wrote above was the statement I highlighted for you . You are correct . The FBI investigates criminal activity . Congratulations @!

Now … I will type realllllll slow so you can understand this . I will also boil it down to simple syrup for you so perhaps even you can digest it . The FBI was ALREADY investigating “criminal activity” surrounding THE University of Auburn and the player buying crooks that run the place .

I am sure you probably did not know this … but apparently it is a Federal crime to cook the books at a bank and run it into bankruptcy , illegally funnel undeclared income to players and their “famblies” , rig slot machines or bribe legislators . Now admittedly .. the word is even the jaded FBI was shocked at the scope and brazen level of stupidity in the activities they are continuing to dig up .

The sweet fact for those of us who look for even a semblance of justice is their wiretaps were alive and active BEFORE every Aubies favorite little laptop thief left Blinn . The fact that $Cam KNewton and crew floated into the net is simply happen stance . On the other hand … once there … they make VERY handy people to look at … you know … what with the Non profit church funnel cashey type thing going on ( Is tax evasion a criminal or NCAA offense … I can’t remember … )

You are right on one other thing … the FBI could care less that Auburn managed to buy a season’s worth of tainted “victory”. They aren’t in the business of wrecking ongoing investigations to stop an overblown AG school fan base with short man syndrome from tasting “victory” LOL :-)

Unfortunately for you as a deluded “Fambly” member … they ARE in the business of shoving an anal probe even deeper up any crew of clowns who flip them the proverbial finger as they drive by on their next crime spree . And it is in that fine frame of mind I will tell you … they WILL make sure before all this is over that the NCAA is publicly FORCED to stomp the grapes off the AUBarn futbawl program or lose even more of their own credibility ;-)

Your powers of reasoning are as weak as your factitious spelling errors.

The FBI does, indeed, investigate bank fraud and bribery of public officials. Now all you have to do is link those things to Auburn University, a thing nobody else has done and the FBI is not interested in trying to do.

Next you can change the law so the FBI may release the results of a federal investigation to a private entity. (NCAA). Lotsa’ luck there too. While you’re at it, get the FBI to re-open the investigations you are talking about, the last one was closed and the findings turned over to the prosecutors in October. You’re going to be a busy little boy!

Cheer up. Maybe some day your team will hire a coach as good as Gene Chizik and you, too, can celebrate after a championship game and look forward to a bright, shining future for your chosen team. War Eagle!

“The FBI does, indeed, investigate bank fraud and bribery of public officials. Now all you have to do is link those things to Auburn University, a thing nobody else has done and the FBI is not interested in trying to do.”

Now I will give you credit for at least trying to acknowledge the undeniable . The FBI does indeed help investigate both of those things . The you run off the rail and say that NOBODY has linked any of those things to Auburn “and the FBI is not interested in trying to do so” . Without spending all year trying to fill up that hollow space you are using for a hat holder .. let me ask … when you say NOBODY … do you mean the national reporters you have already blown off to this point . Or were you just being deliberately obtuse and intentionally leaving off a PUBLICLY YET on the end of your sentence ? And when you say FBI … do you simply mean the faceless letters that represent some amorphous inscrutable entity … or were you trying to refer to the individuals who make it up ? There is a difference you know … ;-)

Next you start rambling about “changing the law” like I would expect a AU law student might do … if AU had a law school ( are you one of those AU “sociology” majors with a side I have heard so much about ? With a side “degree” in pre-law ? LOL ) :-)

Lemme tell you how all this works in the real world bud . There is the law that you most likely learned from watching reruns of Matlock and finishing off a Jehtro Bodine sized bowl of Sugar Pops . Then there is everything else …

If you think the indictments are over … that all the criminal investigations are closed … that nothing involving Auburn has came up or for that matter that the NCAA can’t be nudged in any direction needed without changing ANY law … you might want to look into hiring Cammy Cam as your paralegal . At the very least he can help you toss your computer out the window when you finally start hearing those knocks on the door .

The fact is “we” … being those of us interested in watching the tent on the circus freak sideshow come down on the heads of people like you … We don’t have to do anything going forward … Except watch … and be very … very …. very amused . Outside of the cult called “the Fambly” every reminder of this year in the future will become a blazing reminder written in stone of just who and what the people of the Barn really, truly are at their core :-)

Alabama still gets my vote as college football’s most consistently dirty program.

If I were king of the NCAA, I would not only saturate Alabama with investigators, I would set up a branch office in Tuscaloosa.

In Alabama, cheating is as much a part of the football lore as the houndstooth hat worn by Bear Bryant and that purty dress worn by Mike DuBose’s secretary.

Alabama has seen it all over the last 20 years. Shady loans. Athletes illicitly accepting cash payments from agents and boosters. Multiple probations. Postseason bans. Scholarship reductions. Lack of institutional control. You name it, the Crimson Tide has done it.

Welcome to Alabama, where the NCAA probations are nearly as prevalent as national championships. Actually, in the last decade, Alabama has recorded more NCAA probations (three) than it has national titles (one).

It should also be noted that the iconic Bear Bryant may not have ever been caught cheating himself, but he tutored some of college football’s biggest outlaws.. Charley Pell, Pat Dye, Danny Ford and Jackie Sherrill all were Bear disciples who went on to provide some of the most unique interpretations of the NCAA rulebook in the history of college football.

Roll Tide?

Alabama’s rallying cry should be, “We Lied!”

And maybe, too, Alabama should get rid of its elephant mascot and replace it with a pig.

What better animal to symbolize the dirtiest, stinkiest program in recent NCAA history.

AU fans remind me of the 500 pound fat chick who throws down her block sized slab of wedding cake …. crushes the toes on half the reception party in a mad bull rush to catch the bouquet …. then spends the next few hours declaring how sexy it makes her look :-)

That’s factitious. Did I help your education progress a little today? Learn a new word every day and soon you, too, can make sensible internet postings, which will be a vast improvement for you.

Here’s another tip to help you along: Know what you are talking about before you type, it will minimize the painful foot-from-mouth extractions which you now frequently endure.
