    I don’t really care who wins the Heisman. I would guess Winston is lock regardless of the rape allegations though.

    Anyone who says this isn’t a runaway should not be a college football analyst.

  3. BurkieInBoston says: Dec 8, 2013 5:21 AM

    Who’s Andrew Williams?

  4. germanflats13a38 says: Dec 8, 2013 8:17 AM

    I’m not sure that naked stats should be determinative when deciding who a winner in this matter.

    Anybody remember Suh’s final stats?

    Off topic but anyone else think Heather Cox asking 1 game question followed by 3 “investigation” questions was completely unprofessional? Especially coming from someone who dropped a “Are you kidding me?” on live TV a year ago. Kudos to Jameis for his composure during the ordeal.

    The Heisman is Winston’s, and it won’t be close.

    @ detectivejimmymcnulty

    No doubt…she basically asked the same question 3 times…I like the way he walked away while she tried to keep talking…I seriously doubt anyone watching the game was expecting her to ask those type of questions or even wanted the topic brought up.

  8. detectivejimmymcnulty says: Dec 8, 2013 9:35 AM


    I wasn’t expecting it at all. Loved the “That’s cheap Heather” comment from one of the FSU staffers. Winston really impressed me during that because if I was in his shoes I would have dropped some very nasty answers. I really wanted him to say something along the lines of “you know I was found innocent, right?” or similar. Again, Kudos to him. I’m half way hoping the Rams bottom out next year so they can take Jameis to be their QB. He’s an impressive kid.

    Lol… No Tre Mason, what a joke. AJ and his beastly stats are sure to make it competitive after all remember it’s what you’ve done in you career, not what you’ve done this season…at least according to analyst and their love for AJ and his chest tatt

  10. amosalanzostagg says: Dec 8, 2013 10:32 AM

    Andrew Williams?

    Andy Williams, oh yeah, sang “Moon River”. I didn’t know he had any eligibility left. If he did that at his advanced age, he should win the Heisman, hands down.

    What? Andy Williams is dead? Never mind.

    Winston wins because an FSU alum, law school graduate and supporter( Willie Meggs) decided not to pursue charges. Can you say conflict of interest? Football rules in Tallahassee.

    you sound inflamed about Winston…better put some cream on that mangina…

  12. realfootballfan says: Dec 8, 2013 12:21 PM

    I read people saying Bridgewater had a down year, lol. That’s one heck of a down year to have had. Any NFL team passing on him will regret it if he comes out as expected.

  13. realfootballfan says: Dec 8, 2013 12:26 PM

    Looking at Winston’s numbers on the page after watching how they attack offensively with a down the field pro style approach just makes it look so unreal. I saw them all there from Casey Weldon to Charlie Ward to Chris Weinke, this guy’s the best we’ve ever had.

  14. realfootballfan says: Dec 8, 2013 12:30 PM


    Very unprofessional and silly, especially knowing what you know from both that initial police report and the state attorney’s report, but I didn’t expect anything but class from the young man because whatever that thing is that people call “it,” he’s got it. From when I checked him out this summer amidst the latest hype of another one of our big time recruit QBs, just hearing how he spoke in high school before big playoff games and hyping up his teammates in the process was a breath of fresh air.

    Never been too caught up in the Heisman hype, but would be shocked if it went to anyone but Winston. However, I’d like to see McCarron get an invite to New York because props should be given to a guy who has as many championship rings as losses in his college quarterbacking career. No matter what people say about him being “just” a game manager, it’ takes a lot of poise to lead a team to two titles and have them a heartbeat from a third.

  16. Deb says: Dec 8, 2013 2:22 PM

    @amosalonzostagg …

    Whatever I may think personally about the unsavory sexcapades of any group of football players, the documentation on this didn’t read anything like a rape. Meggs could have been a Florida alum, but that wouldn’t have magically created evidence of assault where there was none.

    if they invite McCarron to NY, Brent Musberger wants to know if he can sit next to his girlfriend…

  19. packergator says: Dec 8, 2013 3:36 PM

    I’m a big SEC fan, but I feel like this is the year that the BCS winning streak ends for the conference. FSU’s competition hasn’t been as good as Auburn’s, but I think the Noles are a more balanced team with just a better defense. The matchup of Winston and those big FSU WRs against that Auburn secondary? Ugh. The wild card is whether FSU can scheme to stop Auburn’s triple-option-style running game.

  20. 24pointlead says: Dec 9, 2013 8:49 AM

    McCarron is a good candidate and a better humanitarian. I would like to see him in NY.

    While I would like to see Tre Mason in the mix, I feel sure the guy is happy to play his part in making Auburn a great team. Great season.

    As far as the Heisman goes, I believe Jameis is the man.

  21. 2late2matter says: Dec 11, 2013 3:05 AM

    From the synoptic here I can only see Johnny Football and Jordan Lynch as possibilities.

    The hype is nice for McCarron, and for Winston, but their stats are not all that great.

    I look at a repeat for Manziel this year.

  22. bamafan10 says: Dec 12, 2013 11:32 PM

    I can tell you all one thing .. I am frankly sick of all this garbage about the Heisman … As far as I am concerned it doesn’t mean a damm thing anymore .. give it to the guy in cell block 20 at Folsom Prison for all I care ..
