OK, my Heisman Trophy ballot is due next week, and I haven’t opened a book to study for it.
I know the Johnny Football guy is ESPN’s honeypie, and I know the Notre Dame defensive guy is the Good Guy, and I know the Kansas State quarterback is a contender because Kansas State has been sending me free stuff — free worthless stuff — this fall.
But who for whom should I vote? There are three spaces on the ballot, with five points for the first-place ballot, three for the second-place ballot, one for the third-place ballot. At least I think that’s how it works.
I’m open-minded about this. Who do I need to know about? Or is at a slam-dunk for the kid named “Football?” And what would a football award have to do with a slam-dunk?
