    Auburn won the National Championship on Monday, beating the Oregon Ducks 22-19. Here is my question. They are champions right now. Do you see their title being took in the future? What do you think the NCAA will do about all the allegations?

    There is a chance that this will happen. Also, Cam Newton has the chance of being stripped of his Heisman Award. ESPN reported that Cam's dad was not at the stadium. Come to find out, he was in attendance. Surrounding all this turmoil, is he responsible for his dad's actions? Do you think Cam Newton knew what his dad was doing, or was he fully aware?

    It's all going to come down to who knew what, when did they know it, and who did they tell when they found out. It's pretty clear that Cam Newton was shopped around by his father. Did Auburn make a deal for him? That's a violation. Did Auburn know that a deal was proposed to them for Cam Newton and didn't report it to the NCAA, even though they chose not to accept it? That's a violation. Did they make any special accommodations for Newton or his family, including jobs, money, or discounted/free residences? That's a violation. Did Cam Newton know anything about what his father was doing? That's a violation.

    I would say there's probably a greater chance of this title being stripped than there is of it not being stripped. The NCAA will wait 2-4 years before any definitive action, and by that time nobody will care.

      Totally agree. What pains me is the motivation. The NCAA has a track record of taking this tact. Ignore or dismiss alegations while they profit on the player. Then once the player is gone and the no longer profit, penalize the school. In some cases no one responsible are left at the school. Memphis basketball comes to mind.

    Totally true. Reggie Bush caused the NCAA to look at these cases more. Since his investigation, they investigate these situations firmer. Like D B said, it probably won't happen for another couple of years. Has to be a higher percentage for taking it then not.

    Yeah, and USC. I look at the poor USC players being punished and think to myself, Why would you wanna play if you know you are prohibited from going to a bowl game? That sucks!

    If Newton is stripped of his Heismann does that mean that Auburn will be penalized with 2 years of non-eligibility for bowl play? Or do teams in the SEC get special consideration because they're more lucrative than PAC 10 teams? It will be very interesting to see if fairness is applied.

      All depends on WHAT they find the Player and the University guilty of. If they find out that AU knew about the MS State issue but can't prove that Cam knew, look for bowl sanctions and loss of scholarships or maybe probation. If they find out that Cam knew but AU didn't. Cam is stripped of his Heisman. If they both knew all of the above plus the title getting stripped. If it's determined that Cam's father also propostioned AU...It's all comming back. At this point AU will be in the same boat as USC, if not worse. In fact AU has a history of sanctions.

    I think he is guilty. They just blame his dad instead. Yeah, I saw what you were talking about. That is wrong, in so many ways. It is like a slap in the face. Disrespectful. The Ducks will have a title in 2-4 years, whether they play again or not.

      Actually, when the title is vacated it generally isn't awarded to the losing team, it's just left empty.

    I wasn't sure about that. I figured it would be awarded to the other team. Same with the Heisman. It would go to the second place finisher. Bummer. That's the way it should be D B! lol
    I reallt didn't know. Thanks though. I hate when i make a fool of myself.
