Heisman Trophy Race

Well it's really not a race, more of a college football offensive player popularity contest.

Here is what the good folks over at the Heisman Trust say in part of their creed:

"The Heisman Memorial Trophy annually recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Winners epitomize great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work. The Heisman Trophy Trust ensures the continuation and integrity of this award."

They take that statement pretty seriously or they would not have been Indian-givers and asked for their trophy back from Reggie Bush.  Unfortunately they do not select the winner, about 900+ voters do.

The front runner appears to be some guy named Johnny Manziel who now thanks to his school and the media is known as "Johnny Football".

We did not know that media darling Heisman candidate Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, was  arrest last June, when he was charged with three misdemeanors after a late-night fight in College Station.  In a nutshell, Manziel got in a fight, a College Station municipal police officer broke up the fight, Manziel handed the cop an ID that said he was 21, the cop was skeptical, and eventually the cop found a fake and a real driver's license in Manziel's wallet. Manziel is actually 19.  Manziel allegedly stepped in to break up a fight between his friend and an older Black man.  His friend had used a racial slur against the Black man and he took offense.  We don't know the status of the charges and don't really care.  Company we keep eh?

Police mug shot - Johnny Football

No we are not sure why Johnny is shirtless. 

Johnny helped beat then #1 Alabama.  No big deal, the Irish and Manti Te'o are going to accomplish the same come January 7th.

Red-shirt freshman Johnny set some pretty impressive records at #9 ranked and 10-2 TA&M.

So did Manti Te'o for the #1 ranked and 12-0 Irish.  Some are posted top right on the Blog.  If Johnny Football wins the Heisman, good for him and TA&M.  Congradulations.

Thing is, the folks at the Heisman Trust then need to rename the award to "Best Offensive Player in College Football" or some such moniker.  They may want to rework their creed as well.

We here at Subway Alunmi Station think Manti Te'o will win a boatload of awards this season and will get tired of eating rubbery chicken and listening to sweet dribble at awards banquets.  We are convinced Father Sorin founded Notre Dame for guys like Manti Te'o.

Go Irish.  Beat Alabama or Georgia
