You know what two events today are completely unrelated? Penn State Sanctions &; Auburn. Penn State receiving sanctions from the NCAA doesn't have any bearing on Auburn, Cam Newton, or other parties involved from 2011. Don't let Twitter know that. Here's a sampling of what I was originally going to entitle: Today in ButtHurt Theatre:
FREEH NEEDS TO REINVESTIGATE CAM NEWTON. NOW.

Damn NCAA..Let's not do anything to cam newton or auburn for something that ACTUALLY affected the sport

When are the NCAA sanctions coming down against the NCAA for not doing a thing while Auburn paid $250K for Newton,then won a national title?This is just four. Click below for more of this week's fascinating look into the sport's fan's psyche.

@tholzerman @edsbs I do concede that the org that allowed Cam Newton to remain eligible lacks moral authority on situations like this. #NCAA

Also how did it take the NCAA a year and a half to resolve the Cam Newton case, one where they had jurisdiction, and this one took 5 days.

Also, no college is clean. Pitt hired a coach that beat women, auburn took cam newton whose father was shopping him. I could go on

“@_Rob_92: I hope Auburn knows they are next. The truth will come out about Cam Newton. I know they paid him. Lol” --> Amen !

Meanwhile, somewhere in the south, Cam Newton's dad is offering up campus visits by his upcoming grandchildren to SEC coaches for $50k/each

@seahogs Feel like if Louis Freeh did the digging on Cam Newton, he would have found something.

Still disappointed in NCAA punishment of PSU. Didn't expect much (see Cam Newton and 50 years of history), though....
— Spark Guy (@SparkyATS) July 23, 2012
penn state... the ncaa loves punishing after the fact... unless you are auburn or a sec school...

@kingcfb You are out to Lunch Chuck if you don't get the Penn State penalties. That Auburn menatality/education showing
— 404Whore (@404Whore) July 23, 2012
Ok why is the NCAA being so hard on penn state but USC and Ohio state and auburn. Teams that have won title in past ten years get off easy
— billy white (@wvbilly61) July 23, 2012
So now that we are through with the Penn State case..... Look for sanctions to be imposed on Auburn ol sorry ass next Lol! #RollTide bitches

@TheAUCreedaubies don't get to have an opinion on Penn state. Auburn is the dirtiest program in football.
— chris brewer (@chrisbrewer4) July 23, 2012
Things you dont wanna b right now include : Homeless, owner of a car wit no AC, a Penn State football player, a Auburn fan, or Lebron Hater.

@drake_70 I'd rather take a shower at Penn State than go for auburn #DoTheSandusky
— Matt Black (@MattBlack_55) July 19, 2012
so penn state has to suffer the wrath of the ncaa while all the other programs, cam newton included, basically get away with murder..
— Stephanie Tibaldo (@Shmaldy) July 23, 2012
This is some bullshit Penn State gets four year bowl ban while Cam Newton is still getting paid for playing at auburn #ncaa #screwedup
— Kyle Browne (@KyleBrowne17) July 23, 2012
@John_Infante @billplaschke Hell No!! When Emmett eliminate corruption and pay for play then. Emmett is corrupt also, ex:au and cam newton

Got a case of the Monday's? This fact will help...Gene Chizik is 0-8 against UGA, LSU, Bama and Arkansas without Cam Newton. #SEC #WDE
