    Yes. Hence the use of that particular verb in the subject line.

    For a guy who spent at most 12 months as an Auburn student, he sure left his mark on the Plains.

    And I'll bet not much of his mark was the actual student part....
    Only college athlete I've seen with that same smarmy, "I know more than you" smug nuts smirk was Chris Webber. And that didn't turn out so well for anyone.

    True. I think Newton is either as genuine as he appears or a tremendous actor. I'm leaning toward the latter.

    Auburn got their money's worth and Pimp Daddy Cecil got his.


    It's straight cash, Cammy.

    Especially because of the actions of him and his handler. Daddy showing up at the ball game was the last fuck-you to the SEC and NCAA...
    He pissed the wrong people off with that one; if he stayed, the two would be crawling up his ass to find improprieties before next season. Now, they can take their time.

    Maybe too subtle. Meant that he's been a professional (as in getting paid) for about six months now.

    The irony is that with the lockout, he might cost himself money next year, unless the Auburn contract was front-loaded.

    Auburn made the best investment in sports history = +/- $200K for a Heisman and a national championship?

    Newton's second-year paycheck will be a bit better, but the expectations will also be there as well. :)

    I think he will be very much like Vince Young. A big guy with a good arm and some mobility that he was able to exploit in college for a big payday. NFL defenses will be able to catch up with him and he better learn his offensive scheme.

    Where does he go in the draft? late first round? (A bit high for my liking, but if Jesus Tebow can go in the 1st rd. miracles are possible)
