And the Heisman goes to…

Saturday is the annual day that the media proclaims one college football player top dog of his sport. 

It's good to see a couple of new guys get their shot at the bronze stiff arm in “Big Suh” and Toby Gerhart as well as knowing that Tim Tebow will most likely not win his second Heisman, thus preserving the legacy of Archie for at least one more year. 

Anyhow, here’s the rundown on the finalists:

Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford:

  • 311 attempts
  • 1,736 yards
  • 5.6 yards per carry average
  • 26 TDs
  • 0 Fumbles
  • 10 receptions
  • 149 yards

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska:

  • 82 tackles
  • 47 solo tackles
  • 12 sacks
  • 1 interception

Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama:

  • 249 carries
  • 1,542 yards
  • 6.2 yards per carry average
  • 15 TDs
  • 30 receptions
  • 322 yards
  • 3 TDs

Tim Tebow, QB, Florida:

  • 182/279 passing (65.2%)
  • 2,413 yards
  • 18 TD, 5 INT
  • 203 rushes
  • 589 yards
  • 13 TDs

Colt McCoy, QB, Texas:

  • 330/468 passing (70.5%)
  • 3,512 yards
  • 27 TDs, 12 INT
  • 128 rushes
  • 348 yards
  • 3 TDs

Now, who do I think should win the trophy? 

Well, if I had a vote I’d cast it for either Ndamukong Suh or Toby Gerhart.  They both played like men among boys during their respective seasons, easily head and shoulders above anyone else at their positions this year in college football. 

Who do I think will actually win?  Probably Mark Ingram.  He had a great performance in the SEC championship game on national TV and that game, coupled with his season stats, will probably catapult him to the stage on Saturday.
