There is a scripture (paraphrased) "He who honors God, God will also honor." This is a perfect example of how that works. We saw it in Danny in '96 and now in Timmy in '07.

Great for the boy, but why is this story taking up the headlines when we have brave American soldiers fighting Islamo Facists? The heros are not farting footballs.

Yes Danny, where is Danny now folks? MOST Heisman Trophy winners don't make it in the NFL. Why? The show on the other night said why...because often they choose the wrong kid. It is a popularity contest period. Any team that lost 3 important games should not be able to count the points against way lessor opponents. Like calling someone like Leftwich great winning against an elementary school. He still isn't great but because he overpowered the little guy he racked up 70 touchdowns. Gators should not be ranked as high as they are with 3 losses and the wins are against non ranked schools. I feel bad for at least 2 of those other kids who were way more deserving. That is the bad part.

WOOOOAH and WOW, Tim Tebow is a USA
HERO to many of our SERVICE MEN.
They, like the nay sayers, were anxiously awaiting the choice of the person to win the top college sports prize. THANKS TIM TEBOW for
bringing the Hiesman home.

I cannot believe you said screw the troops. It is because of all our troops over the years that you are free. You are worthless and ungrateful to say something like that. Next time some one bombs us you can go tag body parts for a year. Talk about a hater, listen to yourself you are more than a hater.

Um YES LSU is going to the National Championships, and as for your "Screw the Troops" comment...maybe you should take some lessons from good ol' Tim Tebow at being a better person and being thankful for what the troops do. Just think to yourself WWTTD?(what would Tim Tebow do?) LMAO! I'm pretty sure Superman would frown upon your comment and disown you as a fan.

Anyways, I was rooting for DMAC but wasn't too disappointed that Tebow won b/c both played outstanding this year! Plus, it proves that the SEC is the best confrence in college football.:) Congratulations to Tim Tebow!

look at the stats, tim tebow was far more deserving of this award. we all know despite 3 losses, the sec is the toughest conference in football. hawaii and missouri, yeah they can be good teams when they dont play anyone ranked, they are in a no good conference. tim tebow is far more deserving of the award, that is why he beat mcfadden by 200 first place votes. look into the stats of football and stop hating on this young man.
