The Irony of 30 for 30 about SMU's Death Penalty airing after Cam Newton winning the Heismen

Something tells me that ESPN purposely aired 30 for 30 about SMU's death penalty sanctions, in order to get Auburn's attention.

After watching the Heismen (which went to Cam Newton by landslide vote), ESPN aired its usual 30 for 30 documentary series. 

But, the documentary was about SMU's football scandal in the 1980's, which led to NCAA handing its famous "Death Penalty" that basically left the program in ruins similar to what would expect after a nuclear war.

Is this foreshadowing something? Is Auburn's real problem about to be exposed by the NCAA? Is one NCAA football team about to be hit with the Death Penalty? (I know USC could have gotten the Death Penalty, but that was fully avoided)
