Who will win this year's Heisman Trophy Award?

The 2011 college football season has hit the halfway mark, and the Heisman Trophy Award talk is heating up.

Many players are having phenomenal seasons but who should win the Heisman and why?

The recipient of the Heisman Award means different things to different college football fans and voters. The criterion seems to change every year. Does the award go to the best player on the best team, the best player or the most valuable player in college football?

Or does it go to a standout player that does the most for their team, win or lose? Does it go to the player that excels both on and off the field? Or to the player that has the most outstanding season?

Some fans love statistics, but statistics can be misleading.

What’s more important, the running back with the most rushing yards per game, total rushing yards for the season or the running back that gets his numbers against his team’s top opponents when it counts?

Rarely does one player embody what all the fans and voters look for in a winner.

Here’s a list of players that deserve Heisman talk, a list of those that probably won't be invited to New York but deserve recognition and a list of over hyped players and why.

Let the debates begin.
