As you no doubt know — and probably have known for the better part of a month — Cam Newton was the runaway winner of the 2010 Heisman Trophy.
However, given the off-field issues that have surrounded him this year and Reggie Bush‘s own stiff-armed “situation” a couple months ago, there is a legitimate question that needs to be asked — will Newton ultimately be allowed to retain his copy of the Heisman hardware?
The NCAA’s investigation into the pay-for-play scheme that was put in motion by Newton’s father is still ongoing and, despite Newton’s proclamations of knowing nothing of what financial game his dad was working behind the scenes, there is still a chance that the NCAA could dig up something untoward regarding the Auburn quarterback. If that were to be the case, if the NCAA found Cam Newton was ultimately complicit in the scheme or had knowledge of it, he could very well be declared retroactively ineligible and we could have Bush v2.0 on our hands.
So, what do you think? Will Newton continue to keep the Heisman inside a trophy case that by now is bulging at the seams? Or, will he ultimately be stripped of one of the most prestigious individual honors in all of sports.
