    If Newton is suspended questions?

    If Newton is suspended - 2 questions?

    1.) Does Newton still have a chance at the Heisman? I think Bush's scandal has really tainted the Heisman committee and they are now looking for good character along with on field performance. So, if Newton is out, who is the leader now?

    2.) What are the chances Auburn wins the SEC and goes on to the NC game?

    My guess on both of these is that Newton will not win the Heisman and that Auburn will lose and not play for the NC (bring on Oregon and TCU!).

    If he gets suspened it is done. Hand the thing to LeMicheal James unless somehow Michigan beat OSU and Denard has a huge game.

    Its been going on for months...the news of it just broke last week.

    Without Newton, I doubt Auburn beats Bama, we will be looking at having TCU or Boise State in the National Championship game...

    Re: If Newton is suspended questions?

    Maybe LSU is back in the conversation with 1 loss (to a Cam Newton led AU). They could win the SEC championship and be right there.

    Re: If Newton is suspended questions?

    Here's another question:

    Would a one loss Mishigan State, Nebby, LSU, Ohio State, etc... who wins their conference jump TCU or Boise State if either go undefeated?

    I would really hope not but can see it happen.

    Yeah, they are a team you can't count out. If they win out it will become whether or not they jump the non BCS schools. My opinion is that TCU, if there are no other undefeateds should get their shot. In the end, I think this all ends the same. Oregon is your National Champion.

    Like I said I'll be amazed. Assuming they can link anything to Auburn (these SEC booster know how to cheat - lots of practice) ......It took years to get USC and the Bush story broke while he was still playing college ball. Mid-season suspension for a non-felony ain't a gonna happen.

    MSU-No, they didn't play OSU. That hurts.
    Nebby-They haven't been that impressive and their loss is not quality
    LSU-Perhaps, but winning out will be difficult
    OSU-Maybe, but again, they didn't play MSU which hurts
    So, there, maybe it would happen.

    Yeah, precedent. They won't make that mistake again. They will drop the hammer if they have enough information to do so.

    If Newton is found to be at fault, would Auburn lose their wins? And if they do, do the teams that they played get the wins back? Because while it isn't just one person who loses a game, one person, especially the QB, can win the game.

    Also, while TCU has earned their spot with the beat down of Utah, LSU is definitely better than Boise State.

    Michigan State - Not a chance, the huge loss to Iowa rules them out.

    Nebby - small chance, but they would have to beat OSU convincingly in the BigXII championship game and OSU would have to remain unbeaten until then.

    Ohio State/Wisconsin - Neither really have much of a chance of jumping TCU or BSU due to the current BCS numbers and the lack of difficult opponents on their schedules for the remainder of the year to improve those numbers.

    LSU - best chance at jumping them, as they still have #15 Arkansas and the SEC championship game left on their schedule. I don't think they will go over either TCU or BSU, but they have the best chance.
