Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla responds to a reader’s question about the Heisman Trophy race:
Backing the ‘Back. “There seems to be a lot of talk about Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and Arkansas running back Darren McFadden regarding the Heisman Trophy. Many people seem to think the trophy will go to one of these two outstanding players. What would Florida do without Tebow? Well, last year, with limited play from Tebow, the Gators won the national championship. The year before McFadden arrived at Arkansas, the Razorbacks had a 5-6 record.”

Kiz: This is a two-man race for the Heisman. But in my mind, Tebow’s not in it. Voters who fell in love with his rushing touchdowns are too lazy to consider most were shortyardage plunges. Quarterback Chase Daniel was the first player to carry the Missouri Tigers to a No. 1 ranking since 1960. Now that’s a long run. So, when I mark my ballot, the top spot will go to Daniel or McFadden.
