Auburn v Ole Miss: The 8-0 Game

Saturday, October 30 was a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the low 70's.  Still in Auburn at Chewacla State Park, we planned another outside game watching, an evening campfire, a hotdog lunch and a beef stew dinner.  What a day!   Auburn plays Ole Miss tonight in Oxford. On campus, a fall festival is underway with costume contests, pumplin carvings and game watchings, I'm sure. We are quite comfortable right here on our campsite, thank you very much.

Our football game day began with the UT loss to Georgia.  The game had been fairly close through the fourth quarter, but didn't hold up for the Vols.  It's been a terrible year for them.

The Auburn / Ole Miss game started at 6 p.m.  Our campfire was already underway and the sun was setting. The temperature was dropping.  The game was good, especially through the first half.  Auburn scored several unanswered touchdowns in the second half and won the game by 20 points: 51 to 31.

All college football is talking about Cam Newton, Auburn's quarterback phenom.  My concern is that such praise and godly status placed upon this youngster will certainly cause trouble for him.  In researching his background today, I learned he was arrested and charged with the theft of a high-priced laptop computer during 2005 when he was at the University of Florida.  Tsk-tsk. 

In light of this, I won't be asking Santa Claus to bring me Cam Newton pajamas this year.  War Eagle.
