Lol, hell win this in a landslide yet somehow Henry will win the Heisman and not one media member will question it.

Can't wait till he wins this but isnt "good enough" to win the Heisman.

He is clearly the best player in College football. But lets not bring logical thinking into the mix. The media can't handle that.

That's nice, but it's a slap in the face compared to the Heisman after all the hype this year.
