And we don’t expect any straight answers.
Florida QB Tim Tebow, the defending Heisman winner, is named first on more ballots than anyone in the nation, yet finishes third. How so?
We can’t get a straight answer. Except this one from CBS college football analyst Gary Danielson, who was on with Fox Sports Radio’s Andrew Siciliano and Krystal Fernandez last night:
Siciliano: How did 154 people leave Tim Tebow entirely off the Heisman ballot?
Danielson: “Well, because it’s a strategy …That’s exactly why it’s done. That’s why I gave up my Heisman vote about four or five years ago. I just thought this thing is a joke and I don’t want to be a part of it. And by the way, I resigned from the Davey O’Brien award this year for the same reason. The Davey O’Brien wanted me to vote for the outstanding quarterback in college football and here were my choices: Colt McCoy, great player, Sam Bradford, great player, and Graham Harrell, great player. But how can all three of the great players be from the same league? I mean come on, if you’re going to have an award, you got to have Tim Tebow on that award this year don’t you? I just said I’m not interested. I really don’t even like these things and if the Heisman wasn’t out of New York, nobody would care.”
Meanwhile, we keep getting info on ordering these “Tebo Disciple” T-shirts… Not sure why his name on the shirt is missing the final “W” … because he didn’t win the Heisman again?
Caustic Material in Pembroke Pines, Fla. (954-821-4256) (linked here) has the shirts for $14.99. Bow to the Gator God. Or don’t and say did.
