Heisman has come a long way over time

in College Sports in Florida, general, Heisman

Friday, 6 a.m.

They were hard men. They were tough. And they had the bent noses to show for it.

Back before football was the sport you know it as today, the point of the game was to walk to the middle of the field and to push against each other. And grunt. The world was in black-and-white then, and everyone yelled boola-boola, and the Heisman normally went to a guy who had gained yards by the dozens. People wore raccoon coats and fights songs were in the Top 40.

So, yeah, this is better.

This is a sport worth watching.

If there has ever been a barometer to judge college football by, it is the Heisman Trophy. And the competition for it has never been greater. Say what you want about who wasn't close in the voting, but between Derrick Henry, Shawn Watson and Christian McCafferty, you're going to have a whole pile of statistics.
