Re: B&G Heisman Award

Suh should win it, his season was off the charts at defensive tackle. Ingrim will probably win it since he's the player from the #1 team in the country and they normally win. I'll be pulling for Gerhart but I'm sure the East Coast Sports Bias will keep that from happening

maybe its not so much an east coast bias.......maybe its just that there are collectively more sports teams towards the eastern part of the country than there are further west

for instance....ohio, pennsylvania, new york, and florida have multiple sports teams in each of the 3 major sports

places like louisianna have only 1 major franchise in some of the 3 major sports....they dont even have a baseball team

its much easier to understand why more eastern sports get covered than western sports.....its because there are more teams

Re: B&G Heisman Award

I really hope Toby Gerhart wins for two reasons. First of course because I think he is a phenomenal football player and because he had a great season.

Second it would be good because he is white. Just as it has been hard for black players to get a shot at playing QB its hard for a white kid to get a chance to play a skill position. Even in pop warner football kid gets divided into "black positions" and "white positions". Personally I don't believe that the colour of your skin has anything to do with how you would perfor at a certain position in football. I do think however that Toby Gerhart could be a great inspiration for young white kids who wants to play a skill position but only hears that they're not good enough because they are black.

You kids get off my lawn!

No clear winner this year. Spiller is the best player though.

Re: B&G Heisman Award

Mark Ingram hands down. He was the offense when his team needed it and could have beat Florida by himself. I would vote for Toby because he was the most important player on their team but the end result is not good enough IMO.
