look @ the runner ups hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Ricky Williams won the Rushing title in 2002 and had a solid STRANGE career.

Reggie Bush hasn't lived up to the billing, but had a really good season last year.

Cam had a hell of Rookie year last year and Carson Palmer had a good season or 2 bringing the Bengals out of the gutter. He hasn't been very good since the Steelers shredded his knee in that Playoff game.

This site always 'predicts' the winners (i.e. counts the votes from public media), they will probably have your winner nailed down within a couple days.

Denard Robinson should have won it three years ago if the award was stats-based.

My vote is for Te'o. He was the truest leader in all of CFB as the best defender on the best defense on the only bowl-eligible team to go undefeated and heading to the National Championship. The ONLY thing he has against him is that he lines up on the "wrong" side of the ball.

And no, Braxtron Miller did not do enough to warrant a nomination. The kid is a run first/selfish QB who has a TON of growing to do. This coming from a HUGE Buckeye fan.

I've grown weary of TMQ over the years, but he loves him some lineman, and I can't say I disagree with his logic.

Runner-up: B.J. Finney, Kansas State, offensive line. A walk-on, he has been a key to Kansas State's BCS season.

Runner-up: Rick Wagner, Wisconsin, offensive line. You don't rush for 539 yards against a ranked team without a great offensive line.

Runner-up: Chance Warmack, Alabama, offensive line. His performance against Georgia was near perfect. Warmack was blocking so well, often driving his man 10 yards from the point of attack, that in the second half watching him was more fun than watching any skill player. When was the last time that watching an offensive lineman was fun? Alabama center Barrett Jones also is an unusually good blocker. Warmack may become the highest-drafted guard since Chris Naeole was taken by New Orleans with the 10th selection in 1997.

Heisman Trophy: Manti Te'o, Notre Dame, linebacker. If there is ever going to be a pure defender to win the Heisman, now should be the year. (Charles Woodson won in 1997, but returned kicks and played wide receiver in addition to being a cornerback.)

Te'o has been the most important performer in Notre Dame's unexpected run to the BCS title game. He tackles as well as anyone who has ever played football. His seven interceptions are the most for a college linebacker in a decade. He's a former Eagle Scout. He's a Mormon who grew up in Hawaii, combining this year's presidential election qualities. Manziel needs to prove he isn't a one-year wonder. Te'o is about to complete his fourth consecutive banner season. If there is ever going to be a pure defender to win the Heisman, the time is now.
