Of The Past 16 QBs To Win The Heisman, Guess Who’s The Only One With An NFL Playoff Victory As A Starter?
Lache Seastrunk doesn’t care much for this Johnny Football character. He’s a one-year wonder, Seastrunk thinks; he can’t possibly win a Heisman two years in a row. Ipso facto, Lache Seastrunk will win the 2013 Heisman Trophy. He guarantees it. More, after the jump.
Welcome to another edition of “What Happened Last Night?” in which we look at stories of note from the previous evening in the sports world, just in case you missed it for whatever reason, although considering last night was Saturday night, I can imagine what you were up to. Anyway, let’s get you up to date.
There was some uncertainty (some of it perhaps manufactured to give the event more drama), but the end result was the one most people expected: Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is officially the first freshman Heisman winner in history. Watch Manziel’s speech after the jump.
Manti Te’o Won Two Awards For The Nation’s Most Outstanding Player, But He Probably Still Won’t Win The Heisman
Though the chunk of individual awards doled out by the NCAA aren’t necessarily an indicator for who will win the grandaddy of them all, the Heisman Trophy, they most certainly won’t be this year. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o cleaned house, winning the Maxwell Award for the nation’s most outstanding player and the Walter Camp national player of the year award.
Mike Francesa has lost a step or two. The highest billed sports radio jockey in all the land is having a rough couple of months First he starts falling asleep on air. Then he falls asleep on air again. Now Francesa has confirmed today that he forgot to submit his Heisman vote. Whooooops!
Confession Time: We Do Not Completely Hate Notre Dame’s Music Video Promoting Manti Te’o For The Heisman
I wanted to hate you, official Notre Dame music video promoting Manti Te’o for the Heisman. It’s not that I hate Te’o by any means, but I don’t have a particularly soft spot for Notre Dame, so I expected hatred to come easily. But it didn’t. You can decide for yourself after the jump.
Johnny Manziel’s used to putting up ridiculous numbers, but no one could have predicted he’d take the nation by storm quite like he has as a redshirt freshman Texas A&M quarterback. He’s been so good, in fact, that he’s shooting to the top of Heisman lists. But what are his chances of actually winning the award?
So Baylor University’s first win in school history over Oklahoma is no longer its biggest moment – the school now has its first Heisman Trophy winner in the man who quarterbacked the Bears to that victory, Robert Griffin III.
Football analysts and talking heads like to mythologize the “Heisman Moment,” that one play or sequence that immortalizes a player in the voter’s (and America’s) eyes. Welp, I think Trent Richardson just had his Heisman Moment.
