Cam Newton: Did University of Florida Intentionally Try to Upstage Cam Newton?
Cam Newton was awarded the Heisman Trophy less than an hour ago, rightfully claiming college football's most hallowed award after what was a brilliant 2010 season.
But roughly 15 or 20 minutes before the award was handed out, ESPN announced that the University of Florida had hired Texas Longhorns defensive coordinator Will Muschamp to be their new head football coach.
That's all well and good, but the timing of the announcement was pure bush league.
While I have no doubt that the university is happy with their hiring, it just seems like the timing of the announcement was custom-designed to upstage the Heisman ceremony.
And that's just something you don't do, under any circumstances. And indeed, doing so would have been bad enough on its own, but it looks particularly bad given the fact that they had to have known that a player from one of their SEC rivals was destined to win the award.
But if you'd rather ignore one mad rambler and look forward to bowl season, you might dig Bleacher Report's Projections for the BCS Title Game and All 35 Bowls.
