Newton to Auburn, Favre to MSU

Junior college QB Cameron Newton picks Auburn, so Mississippi State turns to Dylan Favre.

Cam Newton was kicked off the UF team for stealing another student's laptop. When the cops arrived he threw it out of a window. Dishonest and stupid. Way to go Auburn.

Anon - True. But at least he didn't try to rob a couple of broke kids and get away in a Prius.

But seriously - I'd like to think he has learned his lesson and will redeem himself during his second go-round with a major college team, like Randy Moss did when he got to Marshall.

But then again, I'm probably partially blinded by the prospect of having a real QB for the first time since Jason Campbell graduated. I still think the most unbelieveable occurence in the history of college football is that an idiot named Brandon Cox went 3-0 against Alabama. And Chris Todd has been only slightly better. So I'm hoping Newton lights up the rest of the SEC big-time.

So I guess you brave anonymous people believe once an 18 year old does something stupid/criminal, he is forever stupid/criminal and is never to be believed to be anything but stupid/criminal for the rest of his life? You don't think there is any possibility that going from QB at Florida to some obscure junior college taught him a lesson and now he's ready to be a productive member of society?

I'm glad I'm not the son of either of you. It would be tough to live with that life-long label once I made my first big mistake.
