The Badgers were thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to staying perfect this season, on a last second bobbled richochet hail mary loss to Sparty and another last second loss to Ohio State on a busted coverage deep after a long QB scramble.

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...
