    OK, Heisman candidates...

    And it's not even close. Johnny Manziel, freshman or not...

    I agree. There's NO WAY that A & M would have beat the best team in the country without him. 10 - 2 as a freshman QB. Passing + running statistics = very deserving of Heisman.

    Kicking an extra point (or should I say missing one) would NOT help him.

    Seems like ESPN/ABC want to give it to the Notre Dame linebacker. Seems like some were politicking not to give it to a freshman. Johnny Football is as deserving of the trophy as anyone. If I had a vote he'd get it.

    I agree.

    And the first freshman to win the Heisman should've been a RB from Wrightsville, Georgia. His sophomore year, too.

    Yep. Not even close. His numbers are very comparable to Tebow and Cam. We will have to deal with him 3 more years because he isn't going to be a big NFL prospect who jumps after junior year.

    He's a RS Freshman, so I'm hoping he's gone after next year.

    Looks like we're going to have to hope the Mayan calendar is correct so that we won't have to chase him for three more years.

    I agree. Good news is I felt similar about Timmy Tebow and our boys figured him out in the SECCG.

    Hate to be negative, but his Vick-like style of play is a tad unsustainable. I hope he wins it this year because I doubt he'll be able to maintain the same torrid production he's managed this year. He torched the SEC, something few players can say. Especially freshmen.

    ND's LB getting it when so many, much more talented defensive players never even got a look?

    Lame.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    He sure should've . Herschel was definitely a man among boys . Around 1,700 yards as a true freshman .

    Wouldn't shock me in the least if they gave it to Teo, as the trend for the past decade or so is to give it to the most notable player on "best" team (at the time of voting). Last year, it went to Griffin, so the trend was broken in that sense. But I don't think for a second that the voters, especially the old school voter, won't give that bust to Teo.
