Michael Crabtree 4 Heisman
Ramblings of a late-night, fall-back sufferer. Take it for what it’s worth:
More than likely, Graham Harrell or Sam Bradford will move to the top of the Heisman favorites, but if there is a better player in the country than Michael Crabtree, I’ll be damned. He absolutely could not be covered last night and that game-winning reception was a thing of beauty and legend. While his stats — almost 800 yards and 14 touchdowns in 9 games — won’t be quite as gaudy as last season’s 1900-yard smörgåsbord, he’s still having an All-American season.
Besides, if he gets close to 20 touchdowns — a distinct possibility with Baylor and Oklahoma on the schedule — that’s Heisman-worthy production from a receiver. Did I mention he’s also the best player in the country? Maybe even the best college receiver ever?
Let his spectacular work to win the game against Texas serve as testimony:
Yeah, quarterbacks put up the sexy numbers but without the skill players who run the routes, make the catches and finish the runs with the effort Crabtree gave, those numbers wouldn’t be near as sexy. With that in mind, let it be said loud and clear:
Vote Michael Crabtree for the Heisman Trophy. It’s time for some Charles Woodson-like change again.
It’s change you can believe in.
