    I voted for Dixon. It's clear that Tebow is the Eastern Sports channel's darlin. Chase Daniels is clearly the hottest QB who has put his team into a position to play for it all.

    TBS, the O'Brien award has traditionally gone to the QBs who demonstrates the most heart as well as the best QB. I don't know of any more heart than playing on a bad wheel and costing yourself millions of dollars via the NFL. There's heart and then there's heart. I'm not going to be surprised if Dixon wins this one. He was clearly the little engine that could in that offense.

    Tebow isn't just a "darling" of anyone. he's destroying records and has looked great in every single game this year. period.

    Since it's an NCAA award, I'm with kastofsna on this one. Those guys didn't do anything in the pros, but this award has absolutely ZERo to with the pros.

    I'm leaning Tebow. He is the biggest threat at QB. He can pass, he can run, and he scores TDs - lots of them. That he's doing it at a younger age is even more impressive.

    I'd give it to Tebow, even as a Seminole fan.

    Although I credit Urban Meyer's genius use of the spread offense to Tebow's numbers. With 5 receivers on the field and Tebow in as QB/RB, and that end around fake, it's almost unstoppable.

    As a pure QB, I had to go with Daniels. I've also seen him play more than the other guys.

    Dixon means the most to his team by far. But Tebow is putting up the best numbers. Daneil is the best QB in the nation though and who I'd want under center myself.

    Dixon if he stayed healthy, but since he didn't, Tebow.
