It is only a matter of time before those Heisman ballots are to be turned in. We have seen many brilliant performances throughout the year, and like many years past, this season's Heisman race is as wide open as it has ever been.
The great thing about this year’s candidates is that there are a variety of players from which to choose. While recently it has been quarterbacks who have won the award, this season features younger players, a defensive guy, a running back and even a wide receiver.
You can certainly make a case for each and every one of these players, but you can also find a reason why they shouldn't walk away with the hardware.
We have heard all of the positives for the candidates all season long. Here is the one knock on each Heisman candidate for the 2012 season.
