The Heisman is turning into a joke.

They get it right sometimes, and they get it wrong sometimes. The most embarrassing moments in Heisman history came when Johnny Majors and Peyton Manning were screwed over in place of a few wannabes. Where are they now?

I'm 'Big Arnj" through and through, but I have to hand it to Tim Tebow. He is an amazing football player and deserving of the award. More importantly he seems to be a young man of high moral character. Congratulations to Tim!!

I find it funny how people can post " so what " and " The Heisman is turning into a joke " when it comes to someone from Florida winning. Tebow was the best possible winner with perhaps the only person able to beat him being McFadden.

I do not like Florida what so ever, but Tebow earned it this year. Though I would have liked to seen Doursey,#72 from my LSU Tigers up there, but he nuked his knee and then went through some back issues and was forced to drop from the Heisman running, but that's what can happen.

Congratulations Tebow on a well deserved Trophy win and GO TIGERS in the BCS Champsionship game.

Erik Ainge...please take note from Mr. Tebow. Yes, a lot of QB's do actually RUN with the ball when a receiver is not open. Yet you simply choose to throw the ball away. Is it because you are afraid to get hit? The Vols could have picked up so many short yardage first downs this year if you simply would have run with the ball. But so many times you just threw the ball away. And so many times you threw the ball so POORLY the receivers never had a chance to catch it. However, I do remember 2 good throws you made in the SECCG..too bad they were to LSU players. And both of them cost the Vols the game. Please play to win the Outback Bowl..don't dink and dunk us into another azz-whooping Erik.

The Heisman goes to whoever ESPN wants to get it, the 1997 race proved that.

Once again, the Heisman is given to someone who's just going to bomb when they get into the NFL.

McFadden was much more deserving of it. He's a team player and doesn't try and do everything on the field.

Hate Florida but he deserved it, much more than McFadden. McFadden ran against us much like Hefney use to return punts before they got a real punt returner back there.

I thought T-Bone was a steak. How could a medium rare piece of meat win a football trophy?

The award is voted on by 900 plus people across the country. The best player won. By the way Mcfadden was good but he wasn't the best back in the country. The running back at UCF Kevin Smith outperformed him and he wasn't even mentioned.
Good Job Tebow you deserved it and he will make it in the pros. That's a guarantee.
