The year was 1687 when a young, bright-eyed, hotshot scientist by the name of Isaac "Ike" Newton had his Principae of Mathematica published for the first time. The main body of work that resulted from that piece of literary genius was his perpetual contribution to society; "Newton's Three Laws of Motion." 

These three theories challenged and scared many pundits of the "Old World," even during the bereavement of the greatest era in time, the European Renaissance.   

I could sit here all day and talk about “Rest, Acceleration and Action-reaction; the three themes of Newton's Laws of Motion.” 

However, that would be boring because B/R is a site for sports fans that love cold beer, grilled brats, football and whiskey! We are not interested in the telescope and a bunch of other mumbo jumbo that “Ike” supposedly invented. 

We are here for football, I mean, Auburn Football…that is Power Football.

Fast forward to the year 2010 and another Newton, this one, “Cam,” short for Cameron, is equally bright-eyed and a trend setter just as well. Unbeknown to the majority of "scholars" in Tuscaloosa, Knoxville, Red Stick and Athens, three new laws have appeared right before our very eyes. 

Similar to the end of the Renaissance, Cam Newton comes from the chronicles of “Tall Tale” comics with the Three “New” Laws of Newton.  As previously mentioned, this Newton signifies the end of another era, the Crimson Tide’s parade of decadence on southern culture. 

The force in which these  "Laws" came upon a bewildered SEC and old friend’s “Worst Nightmares.”  The truth has erupted from the depths of lore, their very own pinnacle of disbelief, unfurling a 6'6' 250 lb quarterback that exemplifies “Domination!” Newton’s Three Laws of Motion, well Cam Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. 


Just as the original law states, one force rests (in this case get’s out of the way) and the other moves in a straight line. As we have seen time and time again, Cam Newton was quoted as saying "I pick and choose when I deliver the blows,''  

Not the defender. It was apparent as the entire UK defense did not give much effort to attempt and bring him down. They got run over, stiff armed, ran around and looked like resting wall flowers in the process. 


Acceleration, Need I say more?  Revert back to the Auburn/South Carolina game on September 2, 2010. If you don’t think Cam Newton is “fast” Watch this video…He slips and still outruns the entire Gamecock defense diving 18 feet out and into the endzone!   "It's my job to be dominant and to give my all on every single play," Cam Newton stated.


The action-reaction law as demonstrated by Cam is him lowering the “boom” on some little linebacker or miniature defensive back. A now famous Cam Newton quote explains:  "It's all about the down and distance," he said. "If somebody is in my way on first down, I'll let them have it. I'll try to fall forward. But if it's third-and-one, I've got to get there by any means necessary." 

That's right Arkansas get ready to feel the wraith of Newton's Three Laws!
