One of my favorite sporting awards is the Heisman trophy. There are thousands of potential winners and there is very rarely a sure-fire winner. Campaigns are ran to try and get certain players to win and former winners get a vote. In no other sport does an MVP type of award have so much politicking and debate surrounding it. This will be my first blog in which I submit my Heisman vote that does not count. Just like the actual vote, my vote will rank three players of the five finalists.
HONORABLE MENTION: Although not finalists, Kellen Moore(QB, Boise State) and Case Keenum (QB, Houston) would be excellent choices for the Heisman. Unfortunately college football always favors the big boys and TD/Int ratios of 41/7 (Moore) and 45/5 (Keenum, who also threw for over 5k yards) are afterthoughts compared to the revenue the school a player plays for produces.
I guess I am done bitching about that for the day, on to the list:
The finalists are Robert Griffin III QB Baylor, Andrew Luck QB Stanford, Trent Richardson RB Alabama, Montee Ball RB Wisconsin and Tyrann Mathieu DB/PR LSU
And my choices...
3. Trent Richardson RB Alabama
2. Andrew Luck QB Stanford
1. Robert Griffin III
