      Tebow had the most 1st-place votes yet was deliberately left completely off a whole bunch of ballots so he wouldn’t win again.

      The scumbags who did that should have had their voting privileges pulled.

        Yes, and Tebow had 2 and was screwed.

          Yeah, but it's not the point. He was deliberately and blatantly screwed, and they weren't even apologetic about it. He was absolutely and without question the best player in college football in 2008.

            With Grossman, asshat voters decided that sophomores simply shouldn't win, so they screwed him by leaving him off ballots. With Tebow (who had finally broken the ridiculous, unwritten sophomore rule the year before), voters decided that he shouldn't win twice, so they did the same thing. Both decisions are outrageous.

              It’s not voting Bradford over Tebow that was egregious - it was leaving Tebow completely off the ballot to ensure that Tebow wouldn’t win that was dishonest. Voting the Texas tech boys or even Colt McCoy over Tebow or saying Tebow was not one of the top theee players that year was incredibly void of honor.

                Yep. No way Bradford should have won over him.

                  The midwest schools took a page out of the hillbilly’s playbook (remember the ‘95 “coach’s” poll?).

                  I’m guessing Timmy was okay with the consolation prize he won in miami... against bradford.

                        It’ll be 4 after Trask beats Franks and Jones out to assume the starting job next season.

                          Heisman shows are so drug out. Just tune in the final 10 minutes and to see winner. Usually see Spurrier and Danny attending.

                              It was deliberate and it was widely known at the time. MANY from the Big 12 region voted Bradford, McCoy and then Crabtree or Harrell to ensure Tebow didn’t win in a landslide over Bradford. Absolute sham and a total lack of integrity IMO.

                                  78, I never said Tebow's numbers were crazy better than the other two overrated POS idiots. All I said is that it was clear he was the BEST PLAYER in college football, which is what the award is supposed to be. He had just come off the best game of his entire career, a SECCG win over Bama without Percy, in which he put the entire team on his back in the second half. It was the best game he ever played and one of the greatest performances in history.

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
