So, after the Florida Gators game, did the game announcers go down on the field and give Tbow a Lewinski? Ever since he started playing for Florida it seems the game callers were falling all overthemselves trying to give him a Lewinski. It's almost as if there were no other players on the field for the Gators. It was all Tbow. No kickers, no running backs, no tailbacks, no fullbacks, no offensive linemen, no defensive linemen, no special teams players, no coaches,...nope, it was all Tbow. Now all you college football announcers line up and take your turn giving Tbow the Lewinski you've virtually been doing on the air for real this time.

I agree, it was flawed last year when he did not win it when he should have.

You cannot find a player in the country that is more deserving.

The Heisman is not just about numbers, which he has. It is about leadership, skills and other factors. None of which any other player in college football has like Tebow does.

McCoy comes close, Spiller is very good, Ingram is awesome, Best got hurt and that leaves the winner, Tebow.

Class act kid all the way, a leader, a winner and always give credit to everyone but himself.

I still don't understand America's love affair for Tim Tebow.

Don't count your wins before you play the game.

I think ESPN hypes him up to be a god in the college game, he's a great player but ESPN always jumps on someones nuts

they love Peyton Manning too, Manning can read minds one of them said today, these guys are retarted.

they also all hyped Miami up at the beginning of the season and everyone agreed they were a top 5 team, now look at them, somewhere in the teen and 20's for most of the season.


ESPN and Tebow is like Oprah and Obama, all on their nuts

I agree with you the most part there, but just because he has that leadership, skills and other factors, it shouldn't mean he should win the Heisman every year because of it.

The kid Gerhert from Stanford is an another example of what the Heisman is about, a kid from what was an average team, leading his team all the way up like he has. Amazing numbers, he is more deserving than Tebow.

Why are you disgarding Gerhart?

Here is an interesting breakdown ranking the BCS conferences by OOC games v. bowl eligible teams.

http://www.texags.com/main/forum.rep...253&forum_id=5 (broken link)

Quote:
All of the relevant out of conference games have been played for the 2009 regular season. Based upon what happened on the field this year in OOC play, here is how I rank the conferences:
#1 SEC
#2 PAC 10
#3 ACC << toughest OOC schedule
#4 Big East
#5 Big “Ten”
#6 Big XII << weakest OOC schedule

Here is how each conference performed against bowl eligible teams in OOC play. (Note: I count ND as "BCS conf bowl eligible" because they are treated by the BCS as a BCS conf team.)

SEC 12-4 vs bowl eligible in OOC (6-3 vs BCS conf bowl elig)
W Georgia 24, @Georgia Tech 30 (10-2) – ACC
L @Mississippi St 31, Georgia Tech 42 (10-2) – ACC
