Cecil Heading To NYC, But Heisman Winners Don’t Want Him There

I’m over the whole Cam Newton mess.  So personally, I don’t give a hoot if his father shows up for the Heisman Trophy presentation on Saturday.  But in this age of the 24-hour news cycle, folks have got to fill time with something.  Which is why “Will Cecil go to the Heisman” mania is sweeping the country.

Bruce Feldman of ESPN.com tweeted yesterday — do I need to tell you how much I hate Twitter? — the following:


“Cecil Newton was on the list of the people submitted by Auburn to travel up & get seats in the player’s section of Heisman ceremony.”


But according to 1987 Heisman winner Tim Brown: “I’ve talked to some past winners and they’d rather (Cecil Newton) not be (at the ceremony).  For (Cecil) to be there would be saying, ‘I’m bigger than my son.’”

That according to BamaOnline.com by way of SportsByBrooks.com.

I’m not sure how Cecil’s showing up would say, “I’m bigger than my son,” but I do understand why folks connected to the award might not want the elder Newton to attend.

However, this moment will be Cam’s moment.  If he wants his father to share in it with him, then that seems to be Cam’s business.

But hey… maybe Cam doesn’t even know that his father is planning to attend.

Trackbacks

  1. [...] Cam Newton will win the Heisman Trophy, but the annual accolade for college football’s best player will be rendered worthless if he ends up returning it a la Reggie Bush style.  Character doesn’t seem to account for much. [...]

    I think technologies just makes it even worse. Now there is a channel to never ever treatment, now there will not be a prospect for them to find out.
