    So Who Gets Your Heisman Vote?

    At mid-season there was no doubt in my mind that Collin Klein was the best overall player. Then Baylor happened.

    Manziel is certainly outstanding but Florida and LSU shut him down in two losses and, honestly, without the win against us I don't think he'd be a serious candidate.

    Te'o was one of the best defensive players in recent memory and without him and his big plays in critical situations Notre Dame may very well be 7-5. He is definitely the leader of their undefeated team.

    For that those reasons I'd give him the nod.

    You?

    You're nuts Sip, even though you're one of my favorites.

    If Johnny Sidearm doesn't win it, throw it away. But don't be surprised if there's not an agreement with Big 12 and Northeast voters and the undeserving Irish player gets it. Remember - they robbed Tebow in 2008 by simply not putting him on the ballot.

    Manziel is the best I've seen this year. A very special player.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    If he was one of the finalists I'd vote for him to. If we had him we'd be illegal lol..
    They announced earlier that only three finalists were invited to New York and those are the one's I compared.

    Manziel didn't play that terribly against LSU and Florida when you consider they are two of the best defensive units in the nation. He absolutely torched Alabama, who statistically is the best defense in the nation, in his last truly big game.

    He certainly played lights out that's for certain.

    I will say, that I forgot that he three 3 INTs in that LSU game. He actually had a pretty effective and efficient day against Florida.

    I think his flawless Alabama game more than makes up for the mistakes he made in the LSU game.

    Johnny Manzeil. Most electric, dynamic player on the field this season. had the ability to affect the outcome of a game with his arm or legs. broke the SEC record for total yardage; set by tim tebow who won the heisman, broken by cam newton who won the heisman, and then broken again by him. had a major game against us on the biggest of stages, in our home stadium, where he was the single biggest reason they won the game...made plays that were amazing.

    ...and TAMU would not be 10-2 coming into the SEC conference from the big12 without him and the plays he made, no doubt about that fact.

    ...Without a doubt should be the first freshman to get the award, IM humble O, of course.

    Johnny Manziel hands down. He would run circles around Teo.

    Manziel.

    I still have nightmares about the guy.

    Though I realize that that is not one of the criterion...
