Post Who should win the Heisman?
I know Luck and Richardson have been the front runners but Richardson only had 1,583 yards - not very high for a RB to win the Heisman. Luck was solid once again, but Griffin had a much better season IMO. He had more passing yards (3,998 - 3,1780), touchdown passes (36-35), rushing yards, touchdown runs/TDS, a better comp % (72.4 - 70.0), QB rating (192.3 -167.5) and fewer INTs (6-9).

I think it is a pretty easy decision this year - what say you?

The trophey isn't about stats, it's for the best player in college football, correct? For that reason I have to go with Luck. IMO he does more with less talent, and against stiffer competition.

I always thought the Heisman was just a prediction as to what great college player will flop in the NFL....

Cause the Pac-10 is loaded. LOL. I'd give the competitive edge to the Big 12. When has Baylor beaten Texas and Oklahoma, well never until this year.

I agree, however, that the award isn't just about stats. Regardless, IMO RGIII had the best year in college football this year and is well deserving.

I know the award isn't about how well the player will translate into the pros, and we would probably both agree that Luck would get drafted over RG III, but answer me this:

If there were a college dream team playing against another college dream team for some sort of championship would you pick RG III over Luck? To me that is the real question at hand, and I know I wouldn't... That's why I'd pick Luck.
