Heisman finalists announced; no Dixon

The top four finalists for the Heisman were announced today, with Tebow, McFadden, Daniel and Brennan making the cut. Of course, you may have noticed the glaring absence of Dennis Dixon (Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year), to which I give a hearty BOO-URNS. It’s not exactly unexpected, since Dixon missed the last three games, but it would have been nice. Oregon fans, of course, think it’s a grave injustice, but Dixon’s also getting some love from unexpected supporters.

    Simply passing some time in between class on Ezine articles and I found your article. Not normally what I favor to read about, but it surely was well worth my time. Thanks.

    And it’s gonna be a lot of fun to watch Hawaii try to play Georgia.

    Mr. Spencer, I agree with you that Colt Brennan should not win it. But I’m gonna have to say that the award should go to Darren McFadden – he was outstanding against LSU (minus the fumbles). He is almost as valuable to Arkansas as Dixon is to us.

    Nevertheless, I think you are right, Tebow will win it (he has the numbers to prove it), and McFadden will once again be the runner-up.

  4. Ian says:

    Are we supposed to be impressed that he barely beat the Huskies? It’s easy to go undefeated when your team has the nation’s 137th most difficult schedule. Compare this to Oregon (#7) or Florida (#9).

    Dixon’s the most valuable player and best senior this year, but Tebow should win it.

  5. joe says:

    Colt Brennan – 131 touchdown passes, 23 NCAA records, only undefeated team in America. Who else can say that? How can Colt Brennan not win the Heisman? If you are skeptical, I challenge you to watch last week’s Hawaii Vs Washington. Colt is incredible. You might become a believer.
