Heisman Voters Get it Right
December 15, 2008 - Seth Staskey
There are many who follow college football closely that think the BCS and the Big 12 didn't get it right with Oklahoma and Florida meeting in the title game rather than Texas.
Well, that will be a debate for years to come, but one college football issue that needs no debate is the Heisman Trophy. The voters got it right this year. Sam Bradford of Oklahoma was by far the best candidate. His numbers were astounding. He's completed 302-of-442 passes for 4,464 yards and 48 touchdowns.
On top of that he led his to the aforementioned Big 12 title, a berth in the BCS title game and his squad set an NCAA record with six straight games of scoring more than 60 points.
Tim Tebow was deserving as was Colt McCoy, but Bradford was the best player in college football. Tebow had one thing against him, and that's the fact that he won it last year. I think voters like giving it to a different person and I know Ohio State fans enjoy the bragging rights that come along with the fact that Archie Griffin is the lone player to win the award twice.
