“I’ve been going back and forth all season trying to sort out who is the most outstanding player. I look at it this way: If you take that player away from his team, how would that team do? To me, Florida has more athletes and more weapons than Texas, so if you take McCoy out of that mix, there’s no way Texas comes close to playing for the title. You can say something similiar with Tebow, but I think the Gators still probably could get it done since John Brantley appears to be such a capable backup. To me, this all signifies someone who is truly outstanding. So, right now, it’s McCoy by the slimmest hair over Tebow on my ballot. But I’m going to remember what Gerhart did against Notre Dame, too. I’m going to weigh that against Tebow and McCoy’s games on Saturday.” — a Heisman voter
