    The Mountaineer in me hopes for Pat White. I'm going to wait a bit before voting, specifically after this weekend of games. If I had to put money on the winner I'd say Tebow. Only problem is no Sophomore has won it in ages (if ever).

    Not voting yet ... I think it could be interesting to compare results of two polls. This one, and a who should win poll.

    As a big Mizzou fan, I'm hoping that it's going to be Chase Daniel who wins the Trophy this year.

    Well, if Missouri beats Kansas and then wins the Big 12 Championship, then yes, I would agree with you that Chase Daniel would then be the frontrunner for the Heisman.

    Tebow, meanwhile, has to beat Florida State probably by at least 14 points. If Florida loses, Tebow will not win it.

    Reesing, for Kansas will get it if Kansas beats Missouri and wins the Big 12 Championship.

    Those are the three, to me, that are really in it. So, I'll wait at least 2 weeks before I vote.

    Have to go with Dixon, even though he is hurt. He was the most explosive, exciting player to watch this year. He could do it with his arm, and legs. We also saw just how valuable he was to his team. When he went down, Oregon was not the same team. Besides Stewart, most of Dixon's main targets were hurt this year. He did the most, with less.

    I didn't vote for who should win. Therefore, Tebow got my vote. He doesn't deserve it, but oh well. The trophy committee is a bunch of crap anyways.

    I'll vote after this weekend's games. See if it gets any clearer. Right now, I'd probably go Tebow, but I'm not voting yet. That results in years like a few years back, when Jason White won it because everybody voted before he laid an egg in the last game of the season.

    Colt Breenan should get some consideration

    McFadden, based on his performance last night with Arkansas beating #1 ranked LSU, now has to be seriously considered as a Heisman frontrunner. Brennan, for Hawaii, will probably be one of the 10 invited, but he will not win it.

    Tebow's numbers are very impressive, but since he is a sophomore I don't see him winning this year, I think that hurts his chances a bit. He may very well get invited, but I just don't think he will win this time. Maybe next year.

    The definition is the most outstanding player. McFadden is without question the most outstanding

    If that is the case, Dennis Dixon has been the most "outstanding" all year.

    McFadden deserves mention for his numbers, and performance against LSU. But Dixon has been amazing all year and carried a team with injuries to key personnel on offense. I was very impressed with McFadden, and if Dixon is not the man, then I would want McFadden to win.

    Until he got hurt. If you don't play the full year you shouldn't win. Though I think if he stayed healthy it'd be a toss up between him and McFadden.

    Chase Daniel is certainly making a statement versus Kansas, though I'm rooting for Tim Tebow to win the award. I hate Urban Meyer, but Tebow winning might put an end to the foolish notion that younger palyers shouldn't win the award. Micahel Vick should have won in 1999, Rex Grossman should have won in 2001, and Adrian Peterson should have won in 2004. Maybe Tebow winning this year will prevent mistakes like that happening in the future.

    I'm not saying Pat White should win, but he at least deserves consideration from the Hesiman voters or an invite to NYC. Guess we'll see what happens. I'm still leaning towards Tebow winning a close one with McFadden.

    EDIT: Maybe we should just have a foot race for the Heisman. :p

    Can I change my vote? Twice? I would have made mine McFadden yesterday afternoon, then would have switched to "other" meaning Colt Brennan yesterday night. :p I hate voting before I see the true skills of some of the candidates.

    HB from Central Florida Kevin Smith has a chance to break the single season rushing record of Barry Sanders. If he was at another school he would win the heisman

    If he was at a premier school he'd get half the yardage at best. Notice the teams Central Florida has played against? Those are your answers.
