    Some great candidates out for the Heisman, but I have to stick with Colt McCoy! Sure to the average eye it would appear that he is either hot or cold starting from his freshman year as a starter. But each year he has shown that he is deadly accurate with his arm and with time or with out time he will pick any defence apart. He is the leader of NCAA football with the most efficient passing and the most wins! He has done all this with an average line not a great line like OU had last year or Florida had in 07, each year he has come out with just an average line, so to accomplish what he has done with that line is amazing! So if you want to pick a heisman winner the whole picture needs to be looked at.COLT HE IS THE MAN!

    Gerhart has had a great year, but one thing overlooked by those who haven’t followed ‘Bama closely this year is that there were seven games in which Mark Ingram had less than 20 carries. His heaviest workload came against the toughest competition. But when ‘Bama had a big lead, Ingram’s day would be over early, as early as the 2nd quarter. And big lead or not, he was sharing time with Trent Richardson. By way of contrast, there was only one game in which Gerhart carried the ball less than 20 times. So when you look at the total yardage and the touchdowns, yes, Gerhart had higher numbers. But when you look at what each player did when he had the ball, Ingram’s work was more impressive, and came against better defenses.

    All of the candidates are worthy, however only one can win. Toby Gerhart is a fine running back, Suh is a beast at Defensive Line, Colt has made himself a household name, Tim Tebow is what these country needs more of as far as a athlete and person. As a Alabama fan I’ve waited almost 50 years to see Bama finally have a Heisman winner. If mark wins I hope the jinx is not going to be a factor in his future success and the teams success. I can’t and won’t discredit any of the other 4 finalist becausse they all are GREAT players and I would be happy if anyone of them win. So good luck gentlemen and may the best man win. Roll Tide!
