Our season long journey of the Bloguin Heisman Poll has come down to one last vote. For 13 weeks we have debated and voted on who will win the prestigious trophy. Andrew Luck has been #1 on the overall ballot for 8 of the 13 weeks, RG3 has been #1 for 3 of the 13 weeks and Trent Richardson and Marcus Lattimore sat at the top of the mountain for one week each. The last three weeks has seen three different front-runners with Alabama's Trent Richardson finally taking the crown in Week 13. Last week Trent Richardson and Andrew Luck sat the sidelines while RG3, Montee Ball and Case Keenum all had one last chance to make their impression on the voters. Yesterday, Robert Griffin III was named "Offensive Player of the Year" in the Bloguin College Football Awards. Can he take home the Bloguin Heisman as well?

Badgers TD machine Ball thrilled by Heisman stage

Montee Ball swears it's OK if he doesn't win the Heisman Trophy. Considering where he was in the middle of last season, buried on Wisconsin's depth chart and pondering his future in football, Ball says going to New York as a finalist for the award is enough for him. After scoring a jaw-dropping 38 touchdowns and helping the Badgers to the Rose Bowl, Ball joins Alabama...

Wisconsin’s Montee Ball: I’ll turn pro if I’ll go in the first two rounds

Ball may not get Heisman, but he deserves it

The best player in college football this season doesn't play games on Saturdays in the Greatest Conference in World History known as the SEC. He isn't the robo-quarterback with the perfect form and future No. 1 draft pick tag in Palo Alto, Calif. He isn't the playmaking quarterback in Waco, Texas, who has become the darling of a nation. No, the best player in college...

Stats on the Five Heisman Finalists

The Heisman will be awarded tomorrow night so I want to take a look at the stats on each of the five finalists to see how they stack up against each other.  If going purely off of stats, RG3 has a distinct advantage of Andrew Luck at the quarterback position while the running backs are pretty close with a slight advantage to Montee Ball.  It is hard to compare Honey Badger’s...

No Bitter Badger

He finished with 22 first-place votes and 348 total points, over 1,200 points behind Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, but Wisconsin junior running back Montee Ball didn't care whether he won or loss. To him, getting recognized for his achievement was more than enough.
