Forget much of what you know about college football. The chase for one of the four playoff spots begins this weekend with a handful of high-profile games.
Financial experts estimated Johnny Manziel made more than $30 million for Texas A&M. Maybe Winston does the same for FSU and their acolytes. So you can see the logic, even if it’s shameful, when the police stutter when mentioning Winston’s name in any criminal context.
It’s a Wiggy Tuesday, which means it’s time for ’10 Questions With Wiggy’ on the Felger & Massarotti program.
Jameis Winston has won the Heisman Trophy, making the Florida State quarterback the second straight freshman to win the award.
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Alabama’s AJ McCarron, Auburn’s Tre Mason and Boston College’s Andre Williams were chosen Monday as the finalists for the Heisman Trophy.
Northern Illinois looks to become the second back-to-back BCS Buster in the history of the BCS, joining TCU. Fresno State, currently the top team in the BCS-busting Mountain West Conference, is looking to reach their first BCS bowl game. So, who has the best shot?
It takes a truly special year by a freshman to deserve the kind of Heisman respect that leads to an invite to New York. Fortunately for Florida State, freshman quarterback Jameis Winston is having just that kind of season so far.
This weekend, college football will shift its attention to the ACC. Playing in the shadows of the SEC the last few years, the ACC will offer this week’s game of the week when Clemson hosts Florida State.
