Standing with Newton would be fine if he had come to Auburn without a questionable past.
It wasn't a journalist that stole the students laptop at Florida. And the journalist didn't throw it out of the window either when authorities came to question Newton abouyt the laptop.
Florida didn't dump Newton, he left on his own. Maybe that was the first mistake.
But looking sideways and "standing behind Cam" shirks the Univerisity's first obligation - turning out quality graduates.
Does anyone wonder if the outright leniency and fawing that is going on here for Newton would have never occured had it just been an average Auburn sophomore?
I suggest the Plainsman come back down to earth. We all know national championships and Hesiman trpohies are heady stuff.
But graduating quality people comes first. And having Newton and his father not talking straight and an investigation underway is no way to promote a quality program.
I suggest tthat the real shame here is that it took someone from NY to get on top of this instead of someone from Auburn. It not only makes Aubrun look bad - it sends a terrible message about our town and our school.
It is time to stand up for quality. Should Newton deserve a clean bill of health - so be it. But at this point, all should be holding judgement. Just reading what his father has had to say - and not say leaves enough out there to be questioned.

Hey Professor Bill, who is confused by the closing of the locker room, here's a solution: GYM BAG and HOOF IT! Why should the university give you a free locker anyway? Maybe the sports store at the Auburn Mall should give you free shoes when yoy do your speed walking at the mall on Saturday mornings. Maybe the 7-11 should give you free coffee since you get your gas there. You got your 2 week eviction notice, so vacate!

I want to say AU did not know, bu then Chizik goes and wears that organge tuxedo shirt that Lloyd Christmas wore in Dumb & Dumber and I have second thoughts. For goodness sake, it's not even AU organge...looks like the UT Vols coach's shirt!

t isn't about Newton, it's about Auburn. Did Auburn pay to get Newton to play? If so, should they be in the running for the BCS championship? If so, all the whining about not being the nat'l champs the year SoCal cheated (2004) is more than a bit hypocritical. Let's not forget that Auburn has bent the rules for its players in the past:

I call bull crap on the statement "The Internet id forever." Technology advances too fast to say that. 8 tracks are forever! Beta is forever! VHS is forever! That friend in 4th grade who said you'd be best friends with forever.....gone. The only thing that's forever is the debt Iman Obama has created!

There's an old saying tught in law schools that says, if the facts are on your side, pound the facts; if the law is on your side, pound the law; if neither is on your side, pound the table! All these Newton claims are coming from people who are just plain pissed off that they, or their teams, can't beat Auburn (on the field or in the polls). Een if Cam were guilty of some chump SEC violation, does it make him any less of a uality football player? No (maybe just more wealthy, but I don't care). Good job Gene for standing by your man!

As Peyton's aunt, I can truly tell you that it would not have mattered in this case whether or not Peyton had worn his seat belt. He actually had his seatbelt on just before the accident. He had taken it off to lie down in the backseat to take a nap. As my brother, Peyton's father, has said many times since Peyton's death, "The Lord knew before Peyton was born that on October 2, 2010, Peyton would be in that car, and it would be his time to return home." My family is one of great faith in Christ, and we know that the Lord had a reason for allowing this tragedy to happen...probably for the 25 souls that have been saved as a result of Peyton's life and death. I know you didn't mean anything hurtful by your comment, but I do hope that you have the faith that we believe in and understand that regardless of what we do, when God decides it is time for us to no longer be on the Earth, then we will be called home to be with Him, or we will have eternal separation from Him.

It is also a tragic accident for someone who meant so much to the Lee County school system, Loachapoka high school students, staff, friends and family as Mrs. Frankie Bell. The family of the victims and the driver are in my prayers.
