Given that he broke Cam Newton’s SEC record for offense with 4,600 yards with two fewer games than Cam had, he should be a lock!
Agreed. However, I am willing to bet that “if” Manziel wins the Heisman, it won’t be a blow-out! He is going to need every vote he can get.
Having said that, don’t forget to go to the Heisman Fan Vote page and vote for Manziel (every day). He has a 4% edge on Manti Te’o, so its going to be close…but if he wins this poll, it counts as one first place vote for him!!
