Back in August I wrote an article for this site previewing the Heisman Trophy race. I predicted it would come down to Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett, Ohio St QB Terrelle Pryor, and Alabama running back Mark Ingram who won the award last year. Well, both Mallett and Ingram missed games due to injury, and Pryor had a good year but not good enough to compete for the Heisman. After 2 or 3 weeks it looked like Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was going to run away with the award, but he too battled injuries and a mediocre team and faded from contention. There was no clear cut favorite until a former Florida quarterback who was the back-up to Tim Tebow came on the scene. He left Florida to get more playing time and played at a junior college in Texas. He accounted for 38 touchdowns and led the team to a junior college national championship in 2009. He was heavily recruited by many teams but it came down to two teams that were SEC conference rivals. The quarterback wanted to go to Mississippi St because their new head coach was his offensive coordinator at Florida and the two had a great relationship. He verbally committed to the Bulldogs, but changed his mind on the advice of his father and signed with Auburn.
