Calling around on Cam Newton: First and Last Part

Hey everyone. I am working on a story about Cam Newton, Auburn's 5-star quarterback who signed last month. He played sparingly during two seasons at Florida. He played all the time at Blinn (Texas) College.

I've been talking with the Southwest Junior College Football Conference coaches who schemed against Newton last fall.

Here's what Donnie Bigby, head coach at Northeastern Oklahoma, had to say.

Newton's numbers in Blinn's 55-42 win against NEO:
17-29, 302 yards, 2 TDs

*OF NOTE -- Newton was suspended for the first quarter.

Bigby on Newton: ``He's the most athletic and skilled quarterback I've seen since Michael Bishop. (Bishop, who later starred at Kansas State, played at Blinn in 1996.) You could tell he had tons and tons of potential. I'm talking about raw talent you just don't see at this level."

Bigby on what NEO did to match up with Newton: ``He's such a big kid. He looks like a defensive lineman, to be honest. I think he'd be a tough matchup on his own -- if he was the only guy on his team. The thing is that he had a great supporting cast last season. We couldn't just worry about him, but he created a lot of problems."

I was reading a live chat with Tom Dienhart. He doesnt think we can challenge the walmartians for the west next year.

I think if Cam picks up this offense and we show improvement on defense we can make a run.

I'm normally against dissing a player in public, but I've seen some of the worst passes in my life over the past couple of seasons.

Kodi is a good AU man and has good attributes. It's time for the coaches to give up on the passing attribute.

I've unplugged everything from all the phone jacks, then plugged one phone in and... nothing. The AT&T people will be here Wed morning. In the meantime, I'm hoping I can get our home security people here today or tomorrow since they hooked all the stuff up inside and they know a whole lot more about this stuff than the phone company.

Luv, Newton played for Mullen while at Fla. and MSU thought they were a lock for CN because of that relationship. If you assume that the MSU folks were to act like Walmartians, then it becomes easy to imagine them making up a cheatin' story to soothe their bruised egos.

CN's dad has explained that AU has much more talent to go along with his kid's talent and that his kid wouldn't have to do it all by himself at AU. The dad even offered a comment that MSU planned to use his kid "like a rented Mule".

Leach took a legal hit. The judge sent the case to arbitration. Obviously this was a move to keep stuff quiet and reduce embarassment for the state school and the meddling booster.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Leach purposely trip up the arbitration just so he can get his facts out in public and then write a book. He is sortof crazy like that. If Leach can't get to a public trial, then I suspect the school will pressure James to back down and then settle with Leach much like the AU-xCTT settlement. Schools/Boosters hate the negative pub.

The death of a bee by the loss of stinger is one of the most bittersweet in nature. Death is cold and dark, but they die knowing they protected their queen. They are at peace.

Bees that sting me don't deserve tranquility on their death beds. Stings hurt.

Jay G,

Can you get your buddy 85 on the phone and make Rey del Chocolate's scenario happen? I'd love to be a part.

SC, he does have a Miami abode.

I'm a huge fan of Ricky Williams, by the way. He's a seriously interesting dude.

Overambitious? Fair enough.

We're finished with the coach quotes. Win some, lose some.

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

y'all are hilarious! I would love to gather y'all up and go to the map fair and let y'all make comments about all the map nerds as they enter, including me.

Map fair has always been last weekend in Jan. since it started back in the early 90s, with the exception of one year they moved it to the first weekend in Feb to avoid the Super Bowl. Now this year they have to deal with the Pro Bowl. Seems like there is usually a marathon in Miami about this time of year also.

I prefer ya'll, but we've had that discussion before.

4:40 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

PF - I value my opinions of my maps more than any experts'.

4:41 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yes, we have. And I did indeed recall that discussion as I was typing it, twice.

4:42 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

"it" being y'all, not the discussion.

4:42 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I think the consensus was that I was right, but you weren't changing...or at least that's how I remember it.

4:43 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

y'all is better if for no other reason than to avoid the little red underline telling you that ya'll is misspelled.

4:44 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

hmmm. I never noticed that red underline.

4:45 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

i don't remember you being "right." I do remember that your explanation (which I've forgotten) actually made pretty good sense.

4:45 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Give it up, guys. Come on.

4:45 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

NEWS FLASH!!!

Howard's AU commitment has inched back up to 90.79%.

4:46 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

JGT, that was only one person's opinion on the coach quotes. I thought it was a pretty cool idea.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

We're just having fun Jay G.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I thought it was a FANTASTIC idea. But then, I prefer y'all, so that makes my opinion pretty worthless.

4:48 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

PF, I think Ricky Williams is pretty interesting, too. I really could see him going to the map fair.

4:48 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

THT,

I'd just like to say that my memory of the outcome of things like that is as selective as the history books that they have us read in high school.

4:49 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I'm not interesting (it even says as much on my profile), but I promise I'd be at the map fair if it was outside the state of Florida. Heck, I might even go if it was in Tampa or Jacksonville.

4:50 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

There's a plaque in my kitchen that says "Shalom Y'all." I thought it was kinda funny/cute until I noticed the positioning of the apostrophe. Now, I hate it.

4:50 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

oh boy. Don't get me started there, PF. I could rant all night long!

4:51 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

PF, you're in high school? Got any classes with jhag? Partying in anyone's basement this weekend?

4:51 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

No, SC. I'm not. That was just bad phrasing on my part.

Basement parties would be awesome, though, except there are no basements around here.

4:52 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yep, 24 and in high school. They must have held him back.

4:53 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Alright, PF's about to flip it with a countdown (or is that a count-up?).

4:53 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Are we on the next page yet?

4:53 PM

Now we are!
