One thing about your comment. The best college players aren't always (or even often) going to be the best NFL players but that doesn't mean they weren't actually the best college players.Luca wrote:If they abolished the Heisman Trophy and took every one ever awarded and melted them all down to make Yugos I'd never miss them.
They almost invariably go annually to the most (over) publicized offensive skill player on a top five or ten ranked team. To claim that this goes to the "best college football player" is a joke when you consider some of the winners in the past. Look how often they tank in the NFL.
It's too bad there's not someway to actually include safeties and linemen and linebackers in this group. It's so bad they actually had to make up separate awards for those positions because sure as hell none of them are ever going to be seriously considered for a Heisman.
All this hype and jockeying and behind the scenes arm twisting has convinced me the most important awards are the Lombardi, the Outland and the Butkus awards.
I realize I'm all by myself here, by the way. Luca
