A little love from Dan Shanoff

Longtime sports commentator and ESPN columnist Dan Shanoff gives us a little love:

Much more on the Heisman tomorrow and Friday, but in the meantime, if you aren't looking at StiffArmTrophy.com, you are missing out on one of the best single-issue Web sites out there.

It's like Wiki-Heisman: SAT effectively becomes the leading independent exit poll: It tracks the Heisman votes made public by voters, as they make them, by harnessing the help of a national network of fans who tip off the site. Site founder Kari Chisolm then uses the data to make projections which have been staggeringly accurate.

For now, StiffArmTrophy has Tebow in the lead, followed by McFadden in a strong second, with Brennan and Chase Daniel locked in a battle for third. They have 151 ballots counted, which is more than statistically significant enough to "call it" (you'd be shocked at how much vastly less a news network uses to call a race on Election Night). It's looking good for Tebow, but I don't wan't a "Dewey Beats Truman" moment on this.

Thanks, Dan!

I also remember a night in November, back in 2000. I went to bed being told that enough votes were counted to declare Gore the President. I woke up the next morning to Bush as the President. You never know.

Thats a great endorsement for the site. Unfortunately I think the oddsmakers are looking at your site or maybe alot of bettors as Tebow became a huger fav as soon as your early vote tallies had him comfortably ahead.
