Heisman: Where Do We Go From Here?
Championship week is over, and the Heisman race is in even more disarray than it was before, if that is even possible.
Tebow and McCoy both struggled greatly, and CJ Spiller, Mark Ingram, and Ndamukong Suh all made the statements necessary to win this award.
So after the wild day, where do all the players stand in the Heisman race?
1. Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford
Toby Gerhart was off this week, which will likely affect his Heisman position a little bit. However, Toby has over 1700 yards rushing with 26 TDs in Stanford's best season in quite some time.
2. CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
To be honest, I have detested the way Spiller has been paraded around in the past. However, after the amazing performance he put on in the ACC title game, I have to give him his credit where it is due.
Spiller rushed for 233 yards on 20 carries and four touchdowns in the loss, giving him over 1000 yards rushing for the first time in his record-setting career.
The only thing holding Spiller back at this point is the Tiger's 8-5 record.
3. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
One word describes Suh the best: beastly.
Despite Nebraska losing in the waning seconds to Texas, Suh completely dominated Colt McCoy, sacking Texas' coveted QB an amazing five, yes five, times.
Like Spiller, the only thing holding Suh back is Nebraska's record, along with lack of recognition by playing on the defensive side of the ball.
4. Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
Ingram racked up three TDs and 109 yards in Alabama's 32-13 dismantling of number one Florida. I think Ingram has the yardage to win the Heisman with over 1500, but only has 15 TDs, leaving him short of Gerhart, and likely Spiller because of his all-purpose abilities.
5. Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
McCoy had an absolutely dreadful game, throwing three INTs and being sacked nine times. However, McCoy still has the numbers to keep his hopes alive, as he still has over 3,500 yards and 27 TDs on the year.
