Who's Teabow?

Posted by: chris | Dec 9, 2008 5:40:03 PM

Chris said: "Who's Teabow?"

Tebow is the annoying fullback who is thrown out of the special teams huddles by his coaches for yelling at everyone and lobs ducks and jump passes to wide opened receivers thanks to Meyer's brilliant gimmicky schemes who easily score against all of the weak teams in this year's JV SEC.

Phil Kornblut of the SC Radio Network voted 1. Bradford 2. tebow 3. McCoy

Because I am not blind and have ethics regarding voting responsibility, I vote for Sam Bradford. Which one of the other candidates set national records this year?

Posted by: Dr. Nick | Dec 9, 2008 10:36:57 PM


http://www.sportsline.com/collegefootball/story/11161976

CBS - According to the results of a comprehensive polling of 32 Heisman voters by CBSSports.com this week. The voters -- all media members -- selected Tebow over Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford by a scant seven points. Texas quarterback Colt McCoy was third. The poll represents approximately 3.5 percent of the 925 Heisman voters. In selecting voters, CBSSports.com tried to achieve a balance by getting participants from all regions of the country.

In the CBSSports.com poll, Tebow was first with 69 points. He was voted No. 1 on 16 of 31 ballots. (He was not selected on one ballot). Bradford was second with 62 points. The Oklahoma sophomore got nine first-place votes. McCoy finished with 55 points and was picked first on seven ballots.

The only other players to get votes were Texas Tech's Graham Harrell (four points) and Florida's Percy Harvin and Iowa's Shonn Greene (one point each). A player got three points for first, second points for second and one point for third.

Tebow might have made the latest, greatest statement. The defending Heisman winner threw for three touchdowns and led the first fourth-quarterback comeback in his illustrious career Saturday against Alabama.

POLL: Who will win the Heisman Trophy?
51% Tim Tebow


15% Colt McCoy


34% Sam Bradford

Can you factor in a trend of recent votes for Tebow? Can you change your formula to account for the rise in votes for him of late?


Posted by: choco | Dec 10, 2008 8:24:37 AM

Do you have the 2 first place votes for McCoy from the Nissan ESPN fans vote and the Musburger poll? He won both with Bradford 2nd and Tebow 3rd.

Bradford is the best. Look at his stats and compare them with previous heisman winnter and you will see that Bradford is by the best. Bradford shouldn't be pentalized for being on a good team. He has to work just as hard as the next guy and he's the one who has to make the throws to have the stats that he does. Face it he's the best player in the country this year and he's probably going to be an number 1 draft choice when he comes out of college. He has all the tools a Tom Brady, or Peyton Manning has. He is the best in college, leave no doubt

not sure if this one was already known but just saw him say it in the chat


Alexa (Gainesville, FL): So tell us, who got your Heisman vote? And how do you think the vote will pan out? I've heard that the second place votes could have a big deal on the outcome. Thoughts?

Beano Cook: (3:07 PM ET ) I voted in the following order:
1-Tebow
2-McCoy
3-Bradford

I feel Tebow will win. I can't remember a year where if any of the top three would win, nobody could complain. I wish we had better candidates running the senate the way we have depth in this year's Heisman. Maybe we can go to Illinois and buy the Heisman Trophy.

finally votes are coming in from regions other than the south that are actually objective observers that realize McCoy and Bradford are legit QBs and Tebow is a system FB who occasionally throws his ducks to wide open receivers. God bless!

Posted by: stew | Dec 10, 2008 12:49:52 PM

Stew, no offense, but you're an moron.

You don't throw 32 TD's, 6 picks last year and win the Heisman THEN follow it up with throwing 28 TD's, 2 picks this year throwing ducks and inaccurate passes.

Do you research or you will continue to be a moron. I'm sure you live near a good community college that will help you get your GED. He's not a Heisman front runner by accident.

I'm not religious but you shouldn't use God's name when writing disparaging posts about another person. Unless that's your thing...

Kari, sorry for the post...

Steward Mandel was on Bob Kemp's local Phoenix radio show today and said he voted Tebow #1, didn't mention 2 or 3.

Not all of those guys on MSNBC are Heisman voters. Some are just media members.

Sam Kouvaris says Tebow

Posted by: Tom | Dec 10, 2008 3:09:36 PM

Are we sure that Don McPherson has a vote? He's not a former winner, nor a sports reporter, at least according to Wikipedia.

"Stew, no offense, but you're an moron.

You don't throw 32 TD's, 6 picks last year and win the Heisman THEN follow it up with throwing 28 TD's, 2 picks this year throwing ducks and inaccurate passes.

Do you research or you will continue to be a moron. I'm sure you live near a good community college that will help you get your GED. He's not a Heisman front runner by accident.

I'm not religious but you shouldn't use God's name when writing disparaging posts about another person. Unless that's your thing...

Kari, sorry for the post..."

Kari, sorry for this rude person's misuse of this section for smacktalk that should be over there. Chris, get a life. 1) I am smarter than you will ever be with two graduate degrees (JD, MBA). Sucker. 2) "God bless!" was poking fun at your cookoo-religious clown duck-throwing FB in the gimmick offense. 3) I never said "inaccurate." You did!!! Hahaaa. See you posers with your big bad defense Jan. 8.

Is it too late to campaign for Matt Cassel?

Seriously, though... what about Rey Maualuga? It's understood that defensive players rarely get a serious consideration, but hasn't he earned the right to be considered that once-a-decade defensive nod? He's far and away better than all his peers and has meant SOOO much to his team. Did little Jacquizz (props to him!) ruin Maualuga's chances? Did he ever have a chance? Do defensive supermen only get consideration when there is no great QB or RB in the country?

Posted by: Chilly | Dec 10, 2008 3:40:43 PM

lol Stew...keep it on the smacktalk side yourself.

Kari, thanks for your work on this site.

"Not all of those guys on MSNBC are Heisman voters. Some are just media members."

YES, that is correct. For my purposes, I've included the votes from that list of folks who I know are voters -- but skipped the rest. (Which probably means I missed one or two, but OK.)

Posted by: Kari Chisholm | Dec 10, 2008 3:48:15 PM

Does it hold true that Former Heisman winner alumnni usually vote for "their" candidate? Can you/do you extrapolate those votes that way if you don't know for sure?

That last update is so screwed. Now have 146 ballots...but the total ballots any person has is unchanged. Still 100 for Tebow and McCoy. What other sites do this better?
