I will never forget a conversation I had with a Florida Gator fan before last season.
“Who cares about the Heisman?” he told me.
“Who cares!?” I exclaimed. “Anyone who loves college football cares somewhat about the Heisman.”
“Not me. All I care about are the Gators. The Heisman is a joke. No one cares about it anymore.”
Well, the conversation didn’t end there, but even a casual observer of college football can see that the Heisman is as hot a topic as ever, as witnessed by the lists that are springing up here and there.
Yeah, it appears that the 2005 race has begun. And people already are talking about it and debating it.
I have the feeling that after this season, even that Gator fan will admit he was interested.
