Look — grandstanding Heisman voters! – CBSSports.com
Some day, if I play my cards right, I will be granted a Heisman vote. Such a responsibility is given only to the few, the proud, the douchebag.
Well, it was given to six douchebags. The six who have grandstanded their way into the Cam Newton story by announcing that they will not, cannot, shall not, vote Newton for Heisman. So it was written, so it will be. Amen.
Who do you think you are? And I’m talking to all six of you, two of whom I know well, and like very much. This doesn’t change anything for me, Mike Bianchi or David Whitley. Still love you guys. But this decision of yours, this holier-than-thou proclamation to protect the integrity of the Heisman, makes me want to vomit.
Newton is eligible to play for Auburn. He is eligible to win the Heisman. Therefore, if he is the best player in college football this season — and only an idiot would suggest he’s not — then he must get that vote.
If he is eligible to play then he should be eligible for the award.
As I mentioned in earlier posts, we have a few grandstanding sportswriters who want to attract attention. That is the real issue here.
Why don’t writers just tell us the story. We don’t care about you and your political views. Keep them to yourselves.
