Dennis Dodd: Cam-gate ain’t over

CBSSports.com Senior Writer Dennis Dodd wrote a brilliant article on Auburn and the continuing problems following the program on account of Auburn quarterback Cam Newton. Here are some highlights:

“Get it out, Auburn. Get it all out now.

“Party your behinds off. Burn the mother to the ground. T.P. the town if you want. Live ’til you Dye. War Cam Eagle and all that. Saturday might be all you have.

“The Cam Newton Phenomenon could be down to a fleeting romance until further notice.”

And this:

“If they keep winning, there’s no doubt they will be (in the BCSCG) this time. But if they keep playing Newton, there is plenty of doubt. That’s why the result had a tentative quality to it. Start with Chizik’s pregame qualifier that Newton was the starting quarterback “today.”

“Today.”

And this:

“There is a real title still out there. Linebacker Josh Bynes knows it. That’s why he may have fibbed just a little when asked what the last nine days were like for a distracted, distressed but still great Auburn.

“Normal,” Bynes said.

“If that was normal, big guy, you may have to get ready in coming days for the new normal.”

Hmmm. Wonder if Dennis Dodd knows what’s coming in the next couple of weeks?

    SEC West title perfect for Auburn, Newton … but will it last forever?

    And the best part? The more flamboyant Newton makes himself, the more hated he becomes in the national media. Forget the local mediots who seem to nurse from the Auburn athletic department like a suckling puppy.

    The national heavy hitters are who will keep this story alive and well.

    And this from Tony Barnhart:

    Auburn faces intense scrutiny before Iron Bowl

    “When it comes to Auburn, I’m not really talking about the NCAA. The NCAA is going to do what it will do. It is thorough — that much we know. There is no reason to believe a pronouncement — good or bad — about Newton and his future is going to come out of Indianapolis any time soon.

    No, the biggest obstacle the Tigers face in the next 13 days is the culture that is the SEC — specifically, the state of Alabama. The subject of Newton’s status and who might have broken rules will be pursued the way a dog gnaws on an old soup bone — relentlessly. Despite the fact that we are now a week and a half into this story and there has yet to be any official allegation that Newton or Auburn broke any rules, there will be no relief from the toxic atmosphere that exists in this part of the world at this time of year.”

    Auburn is so screwed. Even Tim the toolman Taylor couldnt invent the screwdriver big enough to fix what is bothering them.
    None and done.
    But hey all you auborigianls out there.
    A forfieted title beats none at all. And yes its been over 50 years since an auburn team on probation for pay for play has won the National Championship.Keep it going you guys are on a roll and will have your own record soon.
    Most National Championship with paid players on record.

    The Au and Georgia game was dirty. How many Georgia players had to be carried off the field with knee injuries. The hit in the back of the Georgia QB, well after the ball had been thrown. Punches being thrown at the end of the game. No s##t now!! AU are well famous for chop blocks and cracking on the line backers.
    I watched watched as Cam Newton taunted the country as well as the NCAA, while standing at the line of scrimmage. Blowing kisses to the AU fans. When the time ran out the signs that read, we are all in, litered the stadium floor….NCAA, AU IS IN YOUR FACE, how long will you let this continue. If the NCAA lets it go on. Then every school should start buying their team. Hey if you disguise it well enough and make it tough to prove, then why not. You’ll get to have a good season for a while and have a hell of a party, while taunting the whole college football world in the process. NCAA is starting to look like a freaking joke.

    Naw, won’t be any forfeit. You only forfeit games you win! Lets see how many times Camilla gets off his phucking back with that stupid shite eating smile on his face when he has Darius boot up his arse. It’s gonna be real hard for him to get 300 yards rushing when he spends the game on his back like Relf. And if Fairly tries any of that dirty shite on McElroy we’ll let 360 pound Fluker drop kick his ass back to Toomers. RTR!

    Oh wait, let me take time out of my day like Mandy to go to an Aubarn blog where I will be censored. I can honestly say I have never been to an Aubarn blog or website for that matter.

    Finally, it looks like the national and state media have stopped chugging down the orange and blue Kool Aid and are beggining to aknowledge that all is not well on the Plains. Nothing like dodging questions from the media and sending your star player into hiding that irks the media more. See, the media much like the NCAA, kind of frowns on secrecy and defiance. If Cam was devastated over the news that dear old dad had been lying and shopping him, you sure couldn’t tell it by the smiles and flamboyount attitude displayed on Saturday. Perhaps Cam, like the rest of the Auburn nation, is in denial.

    I love Dodd’s superb biography of his quintessential birth in 1957 from the loins of a “legendary amateur soccer player” grandfather from Missouri, really. Does he realize after this scathing, terribly written harangue about Auburn that is might just be a big coincidence that was the last year we WON a national championship. Perhaps this garb you write was also destined to come back and haunt you soooo many years later.

    If you are a little podunk cow college that has never been famous for anything but chop blocking and stealing the traditions of others, How do you get a top 5 recruting class. You pay the f*ck out of a lot of people.

    Auburn you can stick your “creed” up your a**. You are nothing more than lying trash.
    Ask Georgia, MSU, Florida, Clemson, LSU, Arkansas and anyone else who knows about auburn.
    Auburn you have become the most hated team in this nation. And you have alienated almost anyone and everyone. Congrats. The NCAA is about to make an exapmle of you.

    It is unfortunate that the Reds missed you Mr. Romanov.
    What this “Hillbilly” opinion you detest – is the nagging truth that eats at every Aubie’s Soul. At least we can opine freely here – that “luxury” would not be tolerated on an Aubie Blog. That “Moderator” that you crave – would not allow such unwashed truth to pee on your parade.

    War Cam Illegal! Auburn 2010 season* is sure one to remember! Cams dad has admitted to shopping his son to Miss. St., which is against the rules. Auburn may or may not have known. But I think someone at AU paid the price…and it will come out eventually. Cam turned down $180,000 to go to Miss. St. for Auburn, no strings attached? Auburn paid, the question is how well did they cover their tracks? Auburn has been good at doing that, especially with preachers like Cams dad. I wonder if he learned to hustle from Rev. Chette?

    If the NCAA is doing their job they will bust their butts in the next 2 weeks to learn enough to know whether or not to tell Aubie to play Camilla or suspend him. It would be a cluster phuck of a ripoff if Aubie eventually has to vacate the season and by then their ranking will have screwed LSU out of an SEC championship (They may have already screwed them out of a berth in the BCS), screwed Bama out of a BCS Bowl or depending on LSU maybe the Sugar Bowl, and even phucked up the national championship game by keeping TCU or Boise State out. All of these teams unfairly stand to lose millions of dollars if Newton is declared ineligible after the fact. TCU or Boise St an unbelieveable amount of money because of being the first non AQ team to play for the title – much less if they were to win it. This whole situation stinks to high heaven and I hope it gets resolved fast. Of course Bama can make most of it right by whiping Aubies arse on Black Friday. Still Aubie would go to the Sugar and us and LSU get screwed.

    Sung to the tune of “Theme to the Beverly Hillbillies”

    Come and listen to a story bout a boy named Cam,
    Just a football player always looking for a scam. 
    And then one day he was playing with a Dell, 
    But he threw it out the window so he wouldn’t go to jail. 
    (The pokie, that is. Prison. The big house.) 
    The next thing you know Cam was cheating for a grade. 
    His kin folk said, “Hey, you gotta pay to play!”
    Auburn, Alabama thought about it, what the heck?
    Do want it in small bills? Maybe we can write a check.

    The inevitable is coming turds…All you have to hang on to is the REMOTE hope that the NCAA will make Cam sit before the Iron Bowl…Well, let me tell you right now, it is not goint to happen.

    Auburn WILL come into Bryant Denny on the 26th and WILL beat Alabama.

    PERIOD.

    There is NOTHING you can do about it. NOTHING….

    Nick Fairley is going to CRUSH that wuss of a quarterback …Cam Newton is going to run for at least 150 yards, and pass for at least 150 yards….McCalleb will get at least 50 yards …..Dyer will get at least 75 yards….WE WILL SCORE NO FEWER THAN 35 POINTS…..

    All you people have to do now is bash Auburn…Thats cool , I can understand it. It’s all you have left.

    Again…We will win the Iron Bowl….We will win the SEC….And most likely we will win the BCS…

    Cam will win the Hesiman…

    Chizik will exceeded Sabans accomplishments in less time.

    I know this is a bitter pill Turd Fans. But, you will eventually get over it.

    Suck on that one Turds.

    BP, you will have to vacate every bit of it, and deep down…heck, not even that deep down…you know it.

    It’s almost worth seeing you win all that you just said to get to see you have to give it back.

    Either way, you lose. It’s a wonderful thing!

    I think Bama shuts down Cam Illegal, who makes more money than his coach. Then what? We all know Auburn has no defense. I think it is going to be so funny for Bama to pull the rug out from under Auburn this year.

    I think Crimsonite hit very close to what will happen. The NCAA would like nothing more than to insure no SEC team plays for the BCS Championship. The NCAA will drop the hammer soon after the SEC Championship game. Win or lose LSU is left out due to the one loss, and they will be unable to overcome the close games without playing in the SEC Championship. The NCAA insures no SEC team wins the BCS. Crimsonite is correct in the barn screwing more than itself. What a disgrace to the state and the game!

    With pride you have taught your children to wear the tainted orange and blue!

    It sux to be an abarn tiger!
