It is the "Academic Heisman". Way to go Barrett! He is one of my favorite players and it is well deserved.
Great job Barrett, Congrats!
“ The Crimson Tide of Alabama” Now that has a majestic ring to it!
Congratulations to a very deserving young man. You make us all proud!

He definitely deserved that one. He completed an undergraduate degree and graduate work in accounting, at Alabama, with a stellar GPA while also being one of the best, most consistent, and most versatile lineman in all of college football. Doing either one of those things is impressive by itself. To do them both is nothing short of remarkable.
I thought Notre Dame was supposed to be the "smart" team.
Someone please make sure that Notre Dame gets this press release! Very well deserved! Congrats Barrett!!
ETA: No need! I see Mant'i Teo was a finalist! He can take the memo back to South Bend!!
