Auburn’s hulking quarterback brushed off an NCAA investigation of his recruitment as he did so many tacklers this season and captured college football’s biggest individual award Saturday night in a landslide vote.
It’s a Football Friday on the Boomer & Carton Morning Show, and the burning question on everyone’s mind is whether or not the Jets will bounce back after the beating they took in Foxboro Monday Night.

Cam Newton won the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top quarterback Thursday night, when he also walked away with the Maxwell Award as the best all-around player in the country. Next stop: New York, where he’s the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.

Newton and James were named finalists for the Heisman Trophy on Monday, and will be joined by Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Kellen Moore of Boise State for Saturday’s announcement in Times Square.
Cam Newton left nothing to chance. He ran and passed the Auburn Tigers to a shot at the national championship they were denied six years ago, and he might as well start working on that Heisman pose, too.

Cam Newton was on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy — until about a week ago.
No one knows how many more twists the Cam Newton saga still holds. But everyone has a pretty good idea where he will be when it’s over, regardless of how it ends: cashing paychecks in the NFL.
During an episode of “Hard Knocks,” a few Jets joked that RB Joe McKnight took a pay cut to leave USC for the NFL. They may not have been too far from the truth.
Reggie Bush said Thursday that his decision to relinquish his Heisman Trophy is “not an admission of guilt,” just the best way to end the controversy.
