Heisman Trophy Presentation Live Thread

Will A Defensive Player Finally Get Recognized? [Heisman Trophy Presentation Live Thread]

12/12/09 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

This year's Heisman Trophy winner could make history. Will it be Tim Tebow, becoming the first two-time winner since Archie Griffin? Or will Ndamukong Suh become the first defensive player to win it since Charles Woodson? Or perhaps Mark Ingram or Colt McCoy will win it, before heading into the National Championship game. Of course, Toby Gerhart was the late-surging dark horse, and he has a great chance as well.

According to the extremely accurate projection from StiffArmTrophy.com, Mark Ingram is the favorite. They've accurately predicted the winner 7 years in a row, but this year's vote looks close, between Ingram, Gerhart and Suh, despite the fact that McCoy appeared to be the favorite coming into the Big XII Championship Game.

The Trophy Presentation will be shown on ESPN, starting at 8pm EST, and if you're watching, talk about it here. Let us know who you think should win, and who you think WILL win.

Agrees with Dubs....truth be told Gerhart got shafted by Ingrams pick...and McCoy got passed over  yet again.  Both had better years than Ingram...but oh well...no one ever said the truely best player won and the voters go for who was better eye candy the last time they looked.

Bad choice IMO.  Seniors Gerhart, Suh, & McCoy were all MUCH more deserving. 

And as a side note, how is it that Tebow gets bashed for showing some emotion and shedding a few tears and Ingram gets applauded for it?       I'm just sayin'.......

yeah right mark was just as if not more deserving then any of those guys. and buy the  way there was nothin wrong with Tebow being upset

Congradulations, Mark Ingram.  Go to the NFL already.

His NFL career will probably be jinxed. Most Heisman winners are cursed with not making it in the NFL.

Oh Please! Like it's a forgone conclusion that Cincy will beat UF. And it just shows a lack of character on Kelly's part to abandon his former team as they attempt to make history.

That big sigh of relief you hear is the entire city of Columbus...Archie Griffin is still the only two time Heisman winner. At least they beat the Gators at something.

LOL! That;s the ONLY thing they'll ever beat the Gators at....Like there was even a chance TT would've won this year anyway.  Agree with AndiLee that TT shouldn't even be there.   

I find it interesting that Ingram was the #1 vote in 4 of the 6 regions, and McCoy never finished in first in any of them, which makes me happy.

ingram has an intern? did i hear that correctly?

The University has STUDENTS that work as liaisons between the athletic department and the sports information office.  They keep coaches and players informed on mundane things like stats, team records, and national records.  Since Nick Saban is all about DOMINATING the SEC and the nation, he needs these invaluable folks to help him out when a player is close to a record.  So, there is your 'splanation Lucy!  Enjoy your THUG U movie!

Man, what a lame pick. Although not a great Heisman year at all. Enjoy failing in the pros, Mark!

 He's a SOPHOMORE!  Flame all you want, but the Heisman has Mark Ingram's name on it, not your's or any of the other four guys that were there! Besides, he can only improve with two years to play, but I doubt it, since he will GRADUATE next December.  Classy speech by a very classy kid!    You, sir, are classless, not the system!

OK, the 3 Gator Heisman winners, Spurrier, Wuerfel, and Tebow obviously voted for Tebow, but what's the excuse for the other 40 voters.? Oh, does Gary Danielson have a vote.?

And as much as you think I may be a Homer.. TT doesn't deserve it

While I responded to you, I wasn't really talking to you - I was talking to those actual homers. I don't believe he should've been top 5, as others here has said, Spiller was probably even more deserving. And I know you aren't a total homer, you just fell under that TT allure, and I'm sorry for you.

12/12/09   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

Ingram... somewhat deserved, I suppose. He would have been 3rd on my list.

There were more than three players in college football better than Tim Tebow this year.

Gerhart gets my vote.A great player with alot of heart and a great leader!
