    Why does Luck deserve the Heisman?

    I honestly don't get it. He has worse numbers than RGIII off the top of my head, and I'm sure several other QB's, against worse teams to boot. I understand he may be the best NFL prospect, but he really isn't performing the best in college, IMHO.

    Did he already win the Heisman?

    No, but ESPN can't stop jizzing themselves over him in their heismanology ********. It's annoying. He's been good, but he hasn't really been spectacular, and he's playing **** competition.

    Re: Why does Luck deserve the Heisman?

    wait til next nfl season and he'll either be benched behind a legend not to see the field for years or be thrown into a terrible offense(a la dolphins) and everyone will not care.

    But before that happens we'll always here how awesome tebow is.

    He had a great 1 handed catch earlier this year


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    He deserves so because he has a lot of luck.

    Because the media is actually sucking Luck!

    Re: Why does Luck deserve the Heisman?

    Because he plays for an undefeated team while RGIII plays for a 2 loss Baylor team. That's why RGIII won't win.

    Bingo!

    Anyone else remember when Jake Locker was being hyped up like crazy? It'll be a while before Locker gets another chance.

    He does not play in a "gimmick" offense, where RGIII and DR do. That is what makes his number that much more impressive.

    Re: Why does Luck deserve the Heisman?

    Stanford also does not have elite talent. The team has a few good players, but Luck is more or less carrying that team. If Stanford goes undefeated, it is not at all crazy to give him the Heisman. The hype is also carried over from his season last year, which was incredible.

    Luck was impressive as a freshman. He lost one game last year, and that game was to Oregon. Has not lost a game this year. One would have to be extremely mentally lazy NOT to understand why he is a Heisman frontrunner.

    Might be just a little bit of an overstatement. So your saying a player should be penalized if their offense is more impressive, or they are in a system that is more efficient. If Baylor had Stanford's schedule I guarantee Baylor would be undefeated. How would Baylor look without RGIII? Other people deserve it more than Luck who is putting up good numbers against cupcake competition
