 Who\'s leading the Heisman race?
posted 8 years ago

I can't wait to get to Dallas this weekend for the Red River game. You have two dynamic offenses in the middle of the national title chase, led by two QBs -- Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Texas' Colt McCoy -- who are near the front of the Heisman race. Still, I think the most intriguing character to watch on Saturday will be playing in Gainesville, Fla., where Tim Tebow faces unbeaten LSU. Obviously, the comments of Ricky Jean-Francois have added to the buzz around the LSU-Florida matchup, but the real story will be how Tebow performs. I must admit I'm surprised at how many people have jumped off his bandwagon in the past few weeks. His team did lose at home to an unranked Ole Miss team, but judging by the reactions, you'd think Florida has had the identical start that Tennessee has had this fall. There's even a Web site devoted to the firing of his offensive coordinator, Dan Mullen, who until about two weeks ago was thought to be one of the sharpest young minds in the college game. Mike Bianchi from the Orlando Sentinel had an interesting column today on the atmosphere around UF these days: "It's reached a point, according to the Gainesville Sun, where even one of UF's most beloved former players -- ex-UF quarterbacking great Shane Matthews -- regularly goes on his Gainesville radio show and picks apart a UF offense that led the nation last year and was third in the country. "Even Tebow, the ultimate glass-is-half-full guy, has been sucked into the abyss created by the legions of the miserable. After Tebow fired a 21-yard touchdown pass to Percy Harvin in the fourth quarter Saturday to give Florida a 24-7 lead, Tebow moped off the field without celebrating. Meyer saw his quarterback's dispassionate reaction and ran out to give Tebow a chest bump. "'I wanted him to enjoy it,' Meyer said of his quarterback. "The coach might want to send the same message to many of his fans, who seem to believe Tebow really is Superman. They think he should complete every pass, convert every third down, score every time he touches the ball. They think Tebow should duplicate the incredible statistics he compiled last year when he won the Heisman Trophy. The problem is that it was a once-in-a-lifetime season when Tebow accomplished things never before accomplished in college football. Hey, Russell Crowe is a great actor, but he'll probably never make a movie as great as Gladiator. "The fact is, the Gators lead the SEC in scoring offense and Tebow leads the league in passing efficiency. But, apparently, that's not good enough to satisfy the many spoiled, self-indulgent fans who inhabit Gator Nation. You get the idea some Florida fans are going to be miserable no matter what. They could be married to Halle Berry and complain because she spends too much money on lingerie."
