2011 Heisman Finalists Released

There will be five individuals in New York City this weekend for the presentation of the 2011 Heisman Trophy. Those five players will be:

Andrew Luck - QB - Stanford Cardinal

Robert Griffin III - QB - Baylor Bears

Trent Richardson - RB - Alabama Crimson Tide

Montee Ball - RB - Wisconsin Badgers

Tyrann Mathieu - DB - Louisiana State Tigers

If I had a vote, it would be for the Baylor star. Personally, I think it's a two horse race between RGIII and Luck but mainly just because of the head start Luck got before the year even started. Richardson is an outstanding player, but about as deserving of a Heisman Trophy as his former teammate Mark Ingram. Which is to say not so much. Ball is having a statistical season for the ages, looking to break Barry Sanders once unthinkable single season touchdown record. No slight to Mathieu, but if Ndamukong Suh can't win the Heisman then you really don't stand a chance. I do think it's cool that Mathieu got the invite though considering the spectacular season he's put together.

So if you had a vote, who ya got?
