    Thumbs up Auburn University's Cam Newton wins 2010 Heisman Trophy

    Cam Newton wins Heisman Trophy
    ESPN.com news services

    Despite a mid-season NCAA investigation that rendered him briefly ineligible, Cam Newton won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night.

    Newton beat out Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, Oregon running back LaMichael James and Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore.

    The week before the Southeastern Conference championship, the NCAA announced that Cecil Newton tried to pull off a play-for-pay scheme with Mississippi State, but there was no evidence that his son or Auburn knew about it. The NCAA decided Cam Newton would be allowed to play, but his father's access to Auburn athletics would be limited. The sports governing body has left open the possibility that Cam Newton's status could change if new evidence came to light.

    Newton, who was not selected to the Football Writers Association of America's All-America team, led the Southeastern Conference in rushing with 1,409 yards, scored 21 touchdowns and was the nation's top-rated passer with 2,589 yards passing and 28 TD throws.

    Newton was greeted by hundreds of Auburn fans when he enterered the Best Buy Theatre before the awards show.

    Eagle" arrived nearly an hour ahead of time to recreate an Auburn tradition. Fans normally line the path into Jordan-Hare stadium in a "Tiger Walk" for players before games.

    Newton's Tigers will play James and the Ducks in the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game in Glendale, Az. on Jan. 10.

    Information from The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Is anyone taking bets for when he has to give it back?

    I asked my 5 year old about this tonight. I told her the award was for the best player in college football and explained most people think he deserves the award based on talent. Then I told her a lot of people think he cheated at his sport but they haven't been able to prove it.

    So I ask her if he deserves the award. She looks at me with a broad grin and said, "If they can't prove it, he should still get the award." WTF kind of parents does she have??

    My father is, feverishly.

    I'm enjoying watching the Facebook wars breaking out among my friends about this. I swear you'd think the Alabama/Auburn rivalry is Serious. Fucking. Business. People have shot family members over the Iron Bowl before.

    Well I was rooting for Auburn last night...what a good game! *of course it was all wrong since Cam should not have been playing...just like OSU and Tyrelle...how many times have I seen that last night/this morning..sigh*

    There was some nasty playing in that game. Did not hate Oregon, but Auburn is not one of the SEC teams that I hate, and I thought they would win, so I was rooting for them, I guess.

    Anyway it was one hell of a good game. Good Sugar Bowl game and good National Title game!
