Tim Tebow gets my vote. One of the greatest college players ever.

I haven't put any stock in that award in years, but I'd like to see him get it too, Brent.

For me, the Florida vs. Alabama game was also the Tebow vs. Ingram for Heisman. I guess Ingram should get it, but what about Colt McCoy? 4yr starter, undefeated his sr year. Tough choice, but Tebow is out after the loss, Ingram is only a soph, so if I were a betting man, McCoy would get it.

Have to go with Ingram. On a different topic Tebow has Matt Leinert written all over him at the pro level. Don't see him being anything more then a 2nd or 3rd string pro QB.

A meaningless award to me in that most Heisman winners go on to be highly mediocre in the NFL. Not too much of an achievement, for the "best" player in College football... One might think that a Heisman winner would go on to greatness and not be thumped by a 5th round pick from a no name, small college.

Anyone who has seen Tebow play will feel sorry for the NFL team that drafts him. I think at this point he is more a publicity stunt than NFL prospect. He would bring attention to the team, sell merchandise/tickets, give positive interviews and become some kind of bench leader>espn guest analyst>Fox Sunday crew member>stripper scandal>apology>retire. LOL thats how I see it.

Not taking anything away from him, he may be in the top 5 collegiate players to have ever played the game. He just doesnt translate to the NFL.

I'm for Ingram or anyone but Tebow.He's a great player but,he's like a song that get's played to death on the radip...he's the picture boy for media over-kill...I'm sick of the guy...I was really put off by his crying yesterday...as much as he's won & w/all the success he's had...take it like a man & go on...

I hate to say it, but after yesterday if you had to choose between Ingram, Tebow and McCoy it would go to Ingram.

The award is for the most outstanding football player of the year, not past years remember.

I think it is just too hard to pick the best or most outstanding player because so many players truly are worthy, but here is who I think is most deserving of consideration. So long as it is one of the following players I don't care who wins it:

Mark Ingram (best player in the best conference, big performances in big games)
CJ Spiller (#3 ncaa all-purpose yards per game, with TDs coming running, receiving, throwing, punt and kick off returns - the most explosive and dangerous player in the game this year)
Ndamukong Suh (the most dominating defensive player this season hands down, one of the most dominating ever perhaps)
Toby Gerhart (26 TDs, 1700+ rushing yards)
Danario Alexander (#1 ncaa receiving yards per game, #3 receptions per game)

Earlier I would have thought that Jordan Shipley from Texas was worthy based on what he was doing as a receiver and as a special teams returner, but his special teams production fell off over the last half of the year.

There are other players who could qualify this year, but I don't think Colt McCoy or Tim Tebow have been good enough over the course of THIS year to win it. Again we are talking about 2009, not any past years or collective careers on this award.

This award has evolved into the the MVQB Award. Since there doesn't seem to be a clear cut choice at that position, maybe another position can win it this year.

The ESPN guys seem to think that it's down to Ingram and Obama.





Seriously, I think the top 5 guys are really close. I favored McCoy till the 3 interceptions.
Spiller did himself a world of good Sat. night.
It's fun having a guy in the mix....I've been keeping up with Alabama football since 1956.
We had some minor shots--Namath, Musso, Lee Roy--but this is the first real chance we've really had. And it's fun! Go Mark!

Heisman-Heisman! Why don't they just change the name to "Back of the Year"?. The award is supposed to honor "the best football PLAYER". I guess quality players never play offensive line or on defense.

I sure think it would be great if Ingram won, though. That a program like Alabama's has never had a Heisman winner just seems strange. But I'm sure if Ingram had his pick, he'd take a National Championship over the shiny bronze guy.

"KONG" Suh from Nebraska gets my vote after watching him on Saturday versus Texas. That dude is a beast. He was being double teamed and was still making tackles and blowing up their offense. Not only that, he makes everyone else on that four man front look aamazing.

i think Ingram wins after saturday, re tebow in the NFL, anyone drafting him will know what they are getting. He may even be a blocking back at the pro level. I dont see him going in the first round but one never knows. Based on listening to Tebow, he may not even go the pro route.

That being said, he will go down as one of the all-time great college players. 4 great seasons at UF. He didnt bring it home this year, but it is never easy to repeat at any level pro or college. Injuries, breaks, guys jumping to NFL early such as Harvin and Murphy etc.

Ingram gets the Heisman . Now to go off-topic a little ... Alabama destroys Texas and Florida dishes out a beating to Cincinnati in the same fashion Georgia did to Hawaii 2 years ago . The SEC is the toughest conference there is , period .

Ndamukong Suh gets my vote. He is the best player I have seen this year.

I think he is going to get alot of 2nd place votes from those who follow college football on a national level. The fact that he plays DT won't win enough voters over for him to be 1st on too many ballots. The game he had vs Texas was just the exclamation point on his season. He has flat taken games over this year. He is very deserving of the award, but so are a handful of others.

I just hope the players who actually deserve the award for what they've done this year are the players invited and not certain other players just because of their name.

Though Georgia Tech's defense has made a number of offensive players look like Heisman contender's this year, Spiller on Saturday looked like the best player in the country. His speed around the corner is just amazing, and his side to side hop is just as fast.

It was amazing to watch even while I was pulling for my Jackets (who racked up more yardage, just spread among many players)

Spiller stepped up and had an amazing season, but Ingram is one powerful dude and most deserving of the award. He took over a big time game and as a sophomore he has it all. I think he is most deserving this year.

Well, we'll see. Bottom line is after these four teams play then the winner should play for thre national champhonship. Speculation is lame, not having a playoff in college football is lame.

As for the Heisman, I go with Ndamukong Suh. I'm not all that impressed with Colt of Tebow. How in the hell do you cry after winning two national championships and crying because you didn't win a third?? Pike will do better in the NFL than Tebow or Colt.

All in fun , Derek . But you've gotta know Cincy and TCU are the USF and Louisville of yesteryear . For more info. on those teams see the NCAA website , and click on the "Where Are They Now ?" tab .
