Cam Newton will the be the first Auburn athlete to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated since 1985 (Bo Jackson) 1999 (Chris Porter) when this weeks issue hits stores. It’s awesome and all, but you already know what I’m going to say. The best player in the nation has to share the cover? Oh well, I’ll take it.
The fact that this is the first AU player to be featured on the cover of SI in a long time and that Bama gets on there for being “Back” in ’05 just shows that AU gets no respect by the media.
