We will get tons of prudes on here saying "Well I am just glad that my insert program name here didn't pay for their record." Those people are liars because they know good and well that if their team could dish out $250 K and get a National Title in return they would gladly do so.
Marcus Lattimore's Momma, Yolanda Smith talked about how dirty Auburn's recruiting seemed.
Look Yolanda errrrebody done see you up at da game on Satday wit yo tower of power weave, fake jewlery, and bedazzled Lattimore jersy lookin so fresh and so clean as ghetofabuloous as can be. Do you really want to draw attention to the recruiting of your son? Do you really want the NCAA looking into how Auburn recruited your baby? That is gonna lead the NCAA into looking at how Ol' Darth Visor landed Lattimore. Do you really want that Yolanda? Cause dey gone be all bout yo paper den.
Look do I think Auburn is dirty? Absolutely but guess what they were dirty when they got Stephen Davis out of South Carolina, they were dirty when they got Takeo Spikes out of Georgia, and they were dirty when they landed Brown and Williams. Auburn is a dirty program and they have been for years. You want to know something else....with the exception of Vandy everyone in the SEC has done the same thing....and I ain't so sure Vandy hasn't done it before either.
I wonder why no one has asked what Florida had to pay to get Newton in the first place? Maybe the NCAA needs to look into Auburn and Florida on this one. I am just saying I don't think Rev. Cecil Newton just got this idea last year. As for the people asking why Georgia didn't land Newton to begin with, well that is a good question. There are people who will say "He didn't fit our scheme" or as my compadre Mr. Sanchez says "He would have been a TE in Georgia's system." Let me ask you this.... how would he not fit? Was it because he was too good? How could having a bigger, stronger, faster, smarter D.J. Shockley with a better arm not fit Richt's system? To all the Richt-O-Philes out there this is one of the things we are talking about when we talk about recruiting the state of Georgia better. You take Newton away from Auburn and they are basically the same team as Georgia this year, so here is another case of "That could have been us."
Regardless, it is time for all Georgia, Bama, S.C., and all the other SEC fans to quit casting stones (cause trust us ain't nobody in this conference a virgin). It is time to get behind Auburn and support the SEC winning another National Title. Trust us if Oregon wins everyone at ESPN, SI, and all the blogs will declare the SEC a dead conference and it will affect everyone's pre-season ranking next year. Remember you are Southerners for God's sake and that makes you better than everyone else. As hard as it may be to swallow it is time to remember where you come from and pull for Auburn in the Title Game.
