In his Heisman acceptance speech earlier this evening, Cam Newton delivered what will go down as one of the most unintentionally ironic lines ever uttered: “My parents do a lot of things behind the scenes that go unnoticed.”
Note to Auburn fans: I’m not presuming that Cam Newton is guilty of anything. The NCAA investigation is ongoing, and I think everyone should allow the guy the presumption of innocence. In spite of the investigation, I’m happy to offer congratulations to Mr. Newton.
You can watch the rest of the speech in the video above. The announcement of the award begins at about 1:30.
