Joshua Nesbitt: Heisman Contender? Maybe.

I'd like to start by saying I was at every Georgia Tech home game and the ACC Championship last year, and watching Nesbitt step up and take control of the offense was astonishing.

When needed, he stood tall and carried Tech to victory on his broad, capable shoulders.

In fact, one or two sportswriters, and a ton of Yellow Jacket fans, believed that Nesbitt should at least be considered for a Heisman trophy. Considering that Mark Ingram is back, and gunslinger ACC quarterbacks like Christian Ponder and Jacory Harris get a whole lot more print and are already Heisman contenders, it's unlikely that No. 9 will get his fair chance.
Then again, if a few unlikely events happen, and the season comes together just right, GT's undisputed leader might just get an invite to NYC.

I'll start by listing the reasons people think he's deserving, and then the things that will have to happen to get him there.
