Re: Heisman Watch: Give It To Toby Gerhart

I thought Ingram won the Heisman while watching the SEC Champ Game. Then I watched Suh put up one of the most dominant defensive games I've ever seen. 11 tackles (for a DT), 6 tackles for a loss, and 4.5 sacks. In one game. Sheesh.

Woodson got it in '97 for a Michigan team that won a National Championship, plus he contributed in the return game. Suh should win every stinking defensive award across the board, but not the Heisman.

I think the voting will look like:

Ingram (after Tebow won it as Soph, can't use that against a guy anymore)
McCoy
Tebow
Suh
Gerhart

Re: Heisman Watch: Give It To Toby Gerhart

This year there is no QB who really stands out. Gerhart has the numbers but Ingram has the exposure. Suh stands alone at his position and has been nothing short of remarkable. As GMScud said, he could win every defensive award across the board and not win the Heisman, but...I think his talent is so remarkable that the voters can't help but notice and he becomes the first defensive player since Woodson to win.

Re: Heisman Watch: Give It To Toby Gerhart

suh doesn't have "the buzz" i doubt he will even be in new york, but he had a hell of a year if nebraska had one loss then he would be in the top four.

i love the names, but nothing for mccoy?

Suh has already been announced as a finalist, as has McCoy.

Re: Heisman Watch: Give It To Toby Gerhart

I think Suh should win it but such a win would be a rarity. It is an incredible feather in Suh's cap that he even is going to New York.

No name popped into my head for McCoy and I didn't want to sit and think about nicknames

thats pretty cool i really didn't think he would get the invite, he deserves it, he had a great game against texas, ithat's the only nebraska game i have seen all year besides highlights. i seriously doubt he will win though, i think it's gonna ingram, if nebraska would have finished with 2 or 3 losses then i think he would have a better chance.

Re: Heisman Watch: Give It To Toby Gerhart

Great article and the perfect description of Gerhart, he is a "Throwback".

When picking Heisman winner, you gotta have Gerhart - NCAA Football - CBSSports.com

Re: Heisman Watch: Give It To Toby Gerhart

Lets be honest,not many teams in the Big 12 really have a stellar defense, McCoy looked all world until he ran into the good defenses like OU and Bo's Huskers. then many of his passes were off the mark and towards the end it looked like he was throwing up prayers. Im not impressed with Colt.

Suh wins the Heisman, its awarded to the best player for the whole season. Not 12 games like Gerhart..or 5 Games ala Colt Mcoy....
