The 2011-12 college football season has been full of so many twists and turns that it hasn’t lent itself to a straightforward Heisman race.
With gigantic upsets almost every week, a player’s Heisman stock can rise or fall with great rapidity. So much of a voter’s decision has to do with overall team performance that even with only a handful of games left, the race is still too close to call. There are just too many questions yet to be answered.
Andrew Luck seemed to have the trophy well in hand, but a devastating loss at home to Oregon changed all that.
Brandon Weeden arguably took his pole position, but what if the Cowboys lose to rival Oklahoma?
Is David Wilson secretly the best back in college football?
And by the way, why aren’t we talking about Case Keenum as a serious contender?
These are pressing questions that need answering. What follows is not only an attempt to do so, but also to show why this year's Heisman race is still anyone's to win.
