The fact that his stats are better on the whole are better is just all the more reason to give it to him.
It makes you question what the Heisman trophy is a trophy for. Most valuable player on a championship contender? Best statistical performance? Most efficient player? Most exciting player? Manziel would certainly win most exciting player.
I don't really care too much about trophies like the Heisman. If it were more defined in what exactly constitutes a winner, I would probably be more interested. I like the race overall and award show because you get to see highlights of these guys and get to follow their seasons more easily.
I think all 4 of the guys I have mentioned would be deserving of the award. I actually think McCarron is running 5th right now.
