USA Today columnist Christine Brennan likes to cover figure skating. So it’s appropriate that she’s sliding around on the issue on “tweaking the voting procedures” for end-of-year sports awards.
So Ms. Brennan, let’s review your vote for the Heisman Trophy. You voted Colt McCoy 1st, followed by Toby Gerhart then Mark Ingram. I don’t know this for sure, but that smells of a vote that occurred before the Big 12 Championship Game. Because if it didn’t, it smells of a highly uneducated vote. Anybody who felt McCoy was a better player than Ndamukong Suh after watching that game just doesn’t understand football. Especially when against the only two good defenses McCoy faced, he looked like a below average quarterback.
No, I’m not upset that she didn’t vote Suh number one, but to have him behind McCoy in anyway looks like a pretty questionable vote.
In regards to your column, Ms. Brennan. Pot meet kettle.
