    Not saying that he didn't deserve it, but I was kind of shocked since he's only a sophmore. Does anyone think he can win two?

    yeah all of the guys who got jobed the last fifty years.... got punked by a systems guy. Too rich. More of indictment of the qulity of the sports reporting industry than it is an endorement of little Timmy. What was the line in Bull Durham ? A pale comprison from all of the those old pros in the past. Ranks right up there with Spureir.

    Seriously, this award has turned into which QB has the most impressive stats.

    Even Tuberville said "If everytime you get inside the 5 you get the ball, you are probably going to score 20 rushing touchdowns."

    They should just give the trophy to Urban Meyer.

    Well deserved, Personally wanted Colt Brennan to win it, but he was never really in the race with the slightly less demanding schedule they have at Hawaii.

    I was pulling for him too, but like you said their schedule, plus the voters not getting the chance to watch him play as much, pretty much doomed his chances.

    This year has sucked. OSU in the title game and Tebow winning the Heisman. While the year as great the ending has left me with such a bitter taste in my mouth.Might have been statistically the most impressive but IMO not the BEST player in College football.

    Anyone think he could possibly win three? He shouldnt leave early, and he isnt gonna get worse.

    he definitely will be favored the next three years, and UF is only going to get better. MUCH better. i have them favored to win the next two title games, so i can certainly see him winning a few more Heismans, why not?

    of course the voters won't just give him multiple Heismans for nothing. he'll have to get better, and that's a pretty tall order to say the least

    As the talent around Tebow grows he will be asked to do less.

    He will get better as a player, but I dont think we will see 50 TDs from him again.

    The voters will not give it to him again unless Florida is in the NC game and Tebow has far & away the best stats in the country.

    The guy can get pumped as much the media wants but he'll have to earn it. I just still get the feeling here while statistically it's impressive what he did this year the voters honestly were looking for someone to run away with the award all season. No one did so by default they had to give it to him IMO. Statistically the most impressive but I still believe the BEST player in college football this year was between Chase Daniel and Reesing.

    As for favored to win the next two titled games...I'd say they're going to be in the mix but they're going to have to grind it out in the SEC. LSU isn't going anywhere and Georgia is going to be a year older and better.

    If Stafford continues to grow then he & Moreno will be a powerful duo.

    Georgia has some top notch freshman coming in this year as well. Some guys who could be instant impact guys. They have a WR in particular that should help Stafford look like a much better QB.

    I was rooting for McFadden i thought he was the more valuable guy to his team, but i can't say that Tebow didn't deserve either.

    I'm with you. I felt bad for him after being second last year.

    Here are some Tim Tebow Chuck Norris quotes from ESPN

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/colu...9274&sportCat=nfl&lpos=spotlight&lid=tab1pos2

    When Google can't find something, it asks Tebow for help ...

    What color is Tebow's blood? Trick question. Tebow does not bleed ...

    Tebow ordered a Big Mac at Burger King -- and got one.

    When it rains in the Swamp, Tim Tebow doesn't get wet. The rain gets Tim Tebow'd
