Decided front runner or Heisman dead heat?


Recommended Posts

Any article you read will declare Manziel the Heisman front runner, many will say he is running away with it.

 

Maybe not so fast. A USA Today straw poll among actual voters puts the race at nearly a dead heat between Manziel and Te'o. Interesting one voter left Manziel off the ballot and two left Te'o off of theirs.

I am leaning towards this being a lot closer than most think. My main reasoning for thinking this way is because one of the guys is a freshman, and the other is a defensive player.....neither of which (freshman / defensive ONLY player) have ever won the award.

 

You have some guys voting Manti because he is not a freshman and some voting Johny Football because he is not a defensive player....then you have some voting for Klein because he is not a freshman or a defensive player.....and all of this leads to this race being a lot closer than some would lead you to believe (in my head anyway.....)

If Te'o doesn't win, the award is a farce as far as I'm concerned. If he doesn't embody everything that that trophy stands for to a T, then the whole thing is just a complete joke. To the point that I won't even consider us having 7 winners as a distinguishing stat. It will be just another football award.

 

Sorry for the rant. :rant:
