Cam Newton denies ever receiving education from Auburn
Updated: January 14, 2011

Cam NewtonDespite recent allegations that Cam Newton received free textbooks, access to a state-of-the-art library, instruction from over 10 professors and one-on-one sessions with at least five tutors during his one-year stint with Auburn University, the quarterback maintains that he never took advantage of a any such academic benefits.

“I always had guys breathing down my neck about taking advantage of classes, but I always refused,” Newton said one day after declaring himself eligible for the NFL draft. “People can say what they want, but I didn’t go to a single class when I was there. Not one. I promise you the only way those professors even know who I am is through the news.”

As of press time, more than 50,000 current and former student athletes have also come forward to deny charges that they ever took advantage of a free education from their respective schools.

    I can’t believe it either, Curtis. The NCAA should really look into this latest development.

    I attended Auburn, once. I quickly realized this school is nothing but a high school football team reincarnated. The vast majority of students there could care less about getting an education. They were there to party and attend football games. I would try to talk to people in class about the subjects and they would give me this blank stare and turn around and talk to their friend about the frat parties.

    I was getting an education in Molecular Biology. Their Genetics class still focuses heavily on Mendelian inheritance-over 3/4rths of the semester and barely touches the molecular science behind genetics. In addition, the lab is a joke. No real experiments. It’s all computer generated “virtual labs”. No electrophoresis, protein assays-nothing to give some sort of skill set. In fact, none of the labs in any science class i attended were worth anything, except for maybe their microbiology lab. It was relatively standard. Their higher level classes are all theory, no application.

    In addition, they make you take two semesters of calculus and won’t let you use a calculator. Seems to me, if you are a Science grad, you would benefit from biological statistics rather than a second semester of calculus that teaches NOTHING about statistics. You learn the same amount in one semester of calculus in another school that uses calculators versus two semesters at Auburn with no calculators.

    The university is all about it football and the extraordinary amount of tuition one pays to go there (over 20,000 a year), goes to exactly that. If you want a real education, don’t go to this school. If you want to surround yourself with intelligent students who care about their education, don’t go to this school.

    If he actually told you that, he was lying/joking. As a student at Auburn, I personally saw him go to class multiple times.

    How many Auburn students does it take to check the reliability of a random website?

    I don’t think they teach satire at Auburn.

  8. Zaki on March 24th, 2011 10:13 am

    Apparently, they don’t teach much of anything there.

    Fresh UnderArmor three times per season though, so that’s something.

    Auburn grads might not pick up on a joke, but it appears as though some are literate, so that’s good.

Feel free to leave a comment. Or don't. It's whatever...
