College Football on Monday

We have a number of interesting conference championship games to look forward to this weekend.  The Pac 12 will feature a rematch of UCLA and Stanford.  I would prefer to see Oregon in this game, but, hey, we don’t always get what we want.

The Big 12 will offer Texas vs. Kansas State.  The Big Ten will give us Nebraska vs. Wisconsin.  The ACC will feature FSU vs. Georgia Tech on ESPN2 at 8:00 pm on Saturday night.  I will be watching and pulling for the Jackets.  Say what you want, this game is not a lock for FSU.  Finally, the big one, the SEC Championship game, Alabama vs. Georgia, Saturday afternoon from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.  I am pulling for Alabama, not only because I am a GT fan and do not want to see UGA in the National Championship game, but also because I really think Notre Dame vs. Alabama is the game we want to see.  That is of course not taking into account the fact that what we would really like to have had the opportunity to see  is Alabama vs. Oregon.  Again, to quote the Rolling Stones, “we can’t always get what we want”!

Now, for the Heisman Trophy update:  Who is the frontrunner?  Probably Johnny “Football” Manziel, in spite of the fact that he is a freshman.  Supposedly, freshman do not win the Heisman.  We shall see.  He has the “Heisman moment”, with the win over then #1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.  Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o had a great moment against USC, especially with the goal line stand.  Marquis Lee has had a spectacular year playing in so many facets of the game, offense, defense, special teams.  Then Collin Klein, QB of Kansas State has had a special year, until the debacle at Baylor, which marred an otherwise outstanding season.

So who will win, well, there is one more weekend of action left before the Heisman Trophy is awarded a week from today in New York.  So, I am going to go with Johnny Manziel, what do you think?
