The Heisman Trophy winner -- who was in the middle of a recruiting scandal all season -- announced Thursday that he will skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

Monday night Newton lead the Auburn Tigers to a national championship victory over Oregon that went right down to the wire.

An NCAA investigation found that Newton's father attempted to sell his son's football services to Mississippi State ... although he eventually decided to play ball at Auburn instead.

5 game suspension, bad track record, promised his coach he would stay in college, its all a sham just to play in the bowl game, screw the BCS, NCAA and Auburn if he went to my College he and his team mates would not have been allowed to play in that game and im sure the school would have been handed down a severe penalty. Its all about the money.

Way too much money and not probally not enough talent to earn that money. College vs. Professional. Will Newton proove he deserved the trophy? Remains to be seen.

To answer a few of the above observations. Fairley is a pos and should have been put on the bench for his behavior. I don't like #32 either but Cam Newton helped get them to the championship.

#29 I must have missed Fairley's bad behavior, because i didn't see him do anything. I know some people are saying he was the one who hit dude in the head, but he wasn't. All I saw him do all game was dominate. And ya Cam might have helped them get there, however, everyone acts like he is the team. He had ALOT of HELP!
