Here are the candidates:
Colt McCoy: Many Heisman pundits believe that Colt
McCoy was one play away from the Heisman Trophy and a national championship shot in 2008. The Horns last second loss to Texas Tech proved to be costly and expect UT to be mission focused in 2009. Not only did McCoy throw for an incredible 3,859 yards and 34 TD's in 2008, but he led UT in rushing as well. On the ground McCoy added 561 yards and 11 scores.
Tim Tebow: Tebow was sensational in 2008 after
winning the Heisman as a sophomore in 2007. Although Tebow finished just behind Bradford and McCoy in the Heisman voting, Tebow's Heisman run was derailed by the success of his own team. While the Gators QB was able to pass for 2, 746 yards and 30 TD's, to go along with 673 rushing yards and 12 TD's, big Gator victories actually subdued his stats. When carrying the Gators on his shoulders in 2007, Tebow rushed for an SEC
record 23 TD's.
Mark Ingram: http://www.associatedcontent.com/articl … tml?cat=14
Both good QB's - but y is it always QB'S .. how about the good Wide Outs catching their passes. I personally like seeing Rushers get the Heisman it adds flash to the prospecting NFL team going after them. So many QB's are washups in the NFL.
LOL it has to be a pretty lousy senior class or a really good Defensive player for it to not go to a QB, WR, or RB.
Wow amazing link there. I would never have guessed that 'Bama has't produced a Heisman winner yet. WOW
I think it is Colt McCoy's Heisman to lose. I see his biggest competition in Alabama's Mark Ingram.

According to various news articles, it seems Cardinals coach, Ken Whisenhunt, has chosen Derek Anderson as his new starting quarterback to replace Kurt Warner. Needless to say, this did not bode well with Matt, so...

I was watching Denver down 10 - 0 and feeling a bit disappointed that Tebow's run was going to end. Then the unbelievable happens. Crazy.
