Using the odds at Malversports as a barometer, it appears as if Florida Gators’ Tim Tebow has some significant work to do if he is going to become the first player to win back to back Heisman Trophy awards since Archie Griffin way back in 1975. The lefthanded run-happy quarterback entered the 2008 campaign as Malvernsports’ 3-1 favorite to have his name called out at the Downtown Athletic Club on December 15th.
Currently paying out at 7-1, Tebow has some work to do in order to add a second Heisman to his trophy case. Overall his numbers are down from last years personal offensive barrage; however, his stats are still quite impressive tallying 19 passing and 11 rushing touchdowns so far. The fact that the Gators are the favorties (+160) to win the BCS National Championship and have absolutely destroyed everyone in their path since their only loss to Mississippi in late September, can’t hurt Tebow’s chances.
The three players that Malversports’ handicappers have ahead of the reigning Heisman owner all have a couple things in common; they are all quarterbacks and they all play in the pass happy Big 12 Conference. Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell and Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford are the current co-favorites paying out at +150; right on their heels is Texas Longhorns’ Colt McCoy (+300).
Coincidentally, the two favorites square off this weekend as Harrell’s Aggies travel to Norman Oklahoma to take on Bradford’s Sonners. This game is sure to have National Championship implications and the winning QB could very well separate himself from the pack in the Heisman running.
From a stats perspective, it is hard to distinguish a favorite from the three Big 12 signal callers. What all three have done is simply amazing considering they all play in the same conference. To even think that one of these three won’t even make the All Big 12 Second Team is unfathomable.
Through ten games, Harrell has 36 TDs to just 5 interceptions and has completed a staggering 71.7% of his passes. Meanwhile,Bradford has thrown for 38 scores to just 6 picks while completing almost 68% of his passes. Finally, McCoy has tossed 30 TDs, only 7 interceptions while completing a mind-boggling 77.2% of his passes.
