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.

Today, we must give out the most prestigious award that combines both college football and sports blogging. This is the fifth year that we've done this now and I've nailed it on the head each time. You see, this blog has it's own version of the Heisman Trophy that we give out. But that award has long since been trademarked by those bastards...

Ball 4th in Heisman Voting
I'm sure you know by now that Baylor's Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy Saturday night. Montee Ball placed a distant 4th. While in NY, Ball did a very candid interview with All Media NY where he said he and the Big Ten...

It is hard to compare Honey Badger’s...

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.
