Colt McCoy For Heisman

I don't get a vote, but I do have an opinion.

I'd annoited McCoy the leading contender back in October and cannot come off of it. With all due respect to Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow, McCoy is the man this year.
McCoy was clearly the Most Valuable Player to his team throughout the season and had the Heisman all but wrapped up until the Longhorns lost 39-37 at Texas Tech.
His effort that night should not take away the Heisman.

McCoy, a junior, completed an astounding 77.6% of his passes this season in leading the Longhorns to an 11-1 record. McCoy tossed 32 touchdown passes with just seven picks during his spectacular season.

The stat that separates McCoy from Bradford and Tebow this season is that McCoy led the Longhorns in rushing yards.

Opposing defenses keyed on McCoy this season, and could not stop him. Without McCoy, Texas would have been a 9-3 or 8-4 team this season.
