What Happened to Colt?

If the BCS isn't bad enough, the Heisman voting had to come along to demonstrate all that is wrong with college football.
Tonight's travesty: Mark Ingram is NOT the number one running back in the nation. He's #12 in rushing yards per game, 26th in scoring and 31st in all purpose yards. He had his best game ever against Florida last week, and Alabama will be playing in the national championship, but along the way they had to beat such powerhouses as North Texas, Florida International, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Auburn which combined for a 26 win - 34 loss season. By the way, Ingram did not rush for even 100 yards in any of these games. (San Antonio Express-News, Dec. 12, 2009, pg. 6D)
Sorry to be bitter, but Colt McCoy IS the winningest quarterback in the history of college football and though he didn't have the game of his career against Nebraska last week, he did lead his team to victory AND a spot in the BCS national championship bowl. This in addition to leading his team to an undefeated season with some outstanding games along the way in what is arguably one of the top two or three conferences in the nation. He won the Maxwell and the Walter Camp awards for player of the year, but he comes in 3rd in the Heisman vote? What!? Politically correct sportswriters cannot see past the last game of the season, don't understand season statistics and generally hate anyone from Texas (and that includes you Aggies too).
Go Horns! Beat Alabama and Mark Ingram!
