Anyone following the Heisman stuff? And if so, what do you think? The first sophomore to win it. I sincerely hope Tim Tebo can live up to the expectations the public is putting on him. The national sports radio people are already talking about him maybe winning two more Heisman. Wow, that's a lot of pressure.

That's two more if he stays in school.  He may head to the NFL and not finish his education.

Yes, Julie he may very well just hop right to the NFL.  And that may be a disservice to him ~ if he gets injured early in his career, he will have no education to fall back on.  IMHO I think they should really restrict this trophy to Jr. & Sr. college students.  But of course NCAA football is not banging on my door asking my opinion.  :)  Isn't it usually a Senior who gets this trophy?  Were there none out there who could qualify?

Yes, an education is so important.  I hope he keeps a level head about him concerning that.
