In case you didn’t notice, Tim Tebow lost Sam Bradford won the Heisman trophy on Saturday night. He was 122 points ahead of Colt McCoy. The Greatest College Player Ever (TGCPE) finished third, 151 points back.
TGCPE received the highest number of first place votes (309 to Bradford’s 300). Heisman Pundit has a great breakdown of when the votes came in and who was leading when. Interestingly, TGCPE received the most votes in the third week, showing once again that the Heisman award is a fraudulent popularity contest and the players should settle it on the field. Never mind, the playoff idiots don’t care about individual awards.
Seriously, Bradford better watch out, it looks like TGCPE will suit up and play defense.
“Why get over it? It’s motivation, just like Ole Miss.”
To Tim Tebow: I had a great deal of respect for you, even if I didn’t like you. I still respect your talent. However, this column is dead on. You should be better than that. You lost. To a better player. In fact, to two better players. You didn’t even have the most total offensive in your own conference. You didn’t have the most TD’s on your team. Leadership, you say? Bradford and McCoy lead their teams back from tough losses, too. If that is why you win Heismans, then Mark Sanchez should be in the mix. Aaron Murray should already be on someone’s ballot then.
You deserved it last year (as much as anyone) with the 55 TDs and the 4200+ yards in offense. This year (40 TDs/3079 total yards; for comparison sake, look at Graham Harrell’s numbers: 47 TDs/4689 total yards)? You shouldn’t have even gone to New York.
