Will Johnny Football win the Heisman?
Isn't he a freshman?
He should! It pains me to say that since I loathe A&M, but the kid is fantastic. Kevin Sumlin has got to be at the top of the list for coach of the year as well. He and Bill O'Brien have done fantastic jobs.
Tavon Austin of WVU should win it, but he will not even be in the mix.
Tavon is awesome, every bit as exiting as Manzeil.
A few weeks ago, I felt no way he would win as a freshman. I felt Mantoa Tao (however you spell his name) would take it.
Now, I'm not so sure. I think Johnny Football wins.
I hope so! My favorite college player.
I was reading a publication yesterday that gave out their awards...
They picked Johnny Football as they player of the year but said they were not ready to "engrave his name on the Heisman just yet"...
What? If you are the player of the year... you should win the Heisman...
Losing five straight conference games will generally do that to ya!

Does he deserve it? Yes. Will he win it? I don't know. I heard this morning on a local sports radio station that a number of Heisman voters in the North and West parts of the country are sick and tired of hearing about how good SEC football is, and may cast their vote for Te'o as a result.
Haven't watched him enough to have an opinion of him, but my gut says T'eo and America's collegiate sweetheart of 2012 Notre Dame is going to pull a Charles Woodson.
If Peyton Manning can lose the Heisman so can a freshman.
I am quickly getting to the point that I don't care. Johnny should win but I think politics will stop him. Klein is still getting some talk when he isn't even the best player in the Big XII. Te'o is no where near qualified, I've seen better defenders get passed over. He is a great player on a great team but you need to be once in a generation on defense if you want to win Heisman.
Johnny's best hope is for Klein to have an excellent game and get his name back in there. If Klein and Te'o split the Hater Vote JFF can win it.
Very early voting results:
Nice link man
Who cares? That award is cursed!
why do you need to be a once in a generation player to win it on D?
Sadly that just shows the mindset of madden players
It's pretty sad that where you go to school matters so much. If Klein and Teo switched schools, Klein would win easily and you'd never even hear of Teo.
The last madden I bought was '07 so you can stop that noise.
You need to be once in a generation because of all the amazing defenders who were snubbed. If Te'o gets it that is a slap in the face to the dozen other defenders who were better than him but missed out. There is a reason it almost exclusively goes to a QB or RB. I have no problem with it going to a defender, but it needs to be a guy like Suh who wins on his own merit instead of Te'o who would win because he was the high profile guy on a high profile team.
