    Many of the front runners have either had a really bad game or are involved in some sort of scandal. So it would seem the prize is still up in the air. So all you college football buffs make your case for your favorite player.

    My favorite was actually the Fresno State QB Derek Carr. But, he didn't have the best bowl performance. So, he didn't even make the final cut. The finalists have been announced a few days ago:

    Florida State QB Jameis Winston
    Northern Illinois QB Jordan Lynch
    Auburn RB Tre Mason
    Alabama QB AJ McCarron
    Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel
    Boston College RB Andre Williams

    Apparently, Jameis Winston is the clear favorite. It was reported that he got something like 45% of the initial votes. If that's true, then he is a lock to win. I would have thought the controversy surrounding him would have hurt his chances more. But, he was acquitted of any charges. So, I guess that's good enough.

    Of those 6, (six being the most finalists for a heisman since 1994), I personally would vote Jordan Lynch. I think that the other candidates benefit from a "plug-in-play a star player in this program here". Alabama QBs will automatically always get consideration. Same with Florida teams. And Auburn. But a team like Northern Illinois, you have to really perform well to even get consideration. The other side of that argument though is that Lynch played in the much easier conference, with a cushier schedule. Fair. But, I like the underdogs anyways.

    Who and why should anyone care? Thus is absolute BS of the first magnitude (and part of the reason why this country is so FU!)
