The Heisman Trophy Winner Is ...

The Heisman Trophy finalists have been named. Tim Tebow of Florida, Darren McFadden of Arkansas, Chase Daniel of Missouri and Colt Brennan of Hawaii are headed to New York for the trophy presentation Saturday night.

Who's going to win?

Let me get a couple of things off my chest first, then I will reveal the big winner. First, who gets the Heisman Trophy? The player who was the most valuable to his team? If that's the case, most quarterbacks could get votes as they are the leaders of their team's offense and arguably the most important player on the field. Is it the best football player in the country? If that's the case, how could you not give it to McFadden? There are very few people who know things that would argue against the Razorback's ability. Maybe it's the best player on the best team. Surely a great player on a bad team isn't really that great, right? Chase Daniel was great this season, but he couldn't beat Oklahoma. What's that? It's a team game? One player can't win or lose a game by himself? Well, now what?

I'm all for awarding individual accomplishments. And I like the Heisman. I don't like that everyone who votes on it has a different agenda and set of qualifications in mind. And don't even get me started on the timing of the voting. How can you vote for anything before the end of the season? And why is campaigning allowed? How shameless can you be?

OK, got that out of my system.

The Heisman Trophy for the 2007 NCAA Division 1A football season (because the athletes at the smaller school just don't count ...) goes to Tim Tebow. How could it not? 29 passing touchdowns, 22 rushing touchdowns. 69% completion rate. And only 6 interceptions all season. His passing numbers are comparable to the other quarterback finalists and his rushing touchdowns are comparable to the running back. The only knock against him is that he's still just a sophomore. Which is just about the dumbest reason to vote against someone.

So mark it down. Next year we'll see the Florida Gators and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow take the field. What will he do next?
