Spare me Johnny Foosball for Heisman- Edge to Optimus Klein

8

Can we please give the Johnny Foosball thing a rest already alright? And it's really not because he's an aggy...although it sure doesn't help on my ballot. Colin Klein is my pick and the linked article clearly outlines why...keep in mind that the stats in the article do not count the KSU v Texas game this weekend...Klein had 23 carries for 105 yards rushing and was 8/14 for 184 yards passing with 1 TD and one pick. He didn't even break a sweat against the fighting McConaughheys. Can we also acknowledge the aggy schedule which includes games with SMU, South Carolina STATE, Sam Houston St., Auburn, Arkansas,..aggy also barely beat Ole Miss and La.Tech and lost to Florida and LSU, the only teams on aggy's schedule besides 'Bama that didn't suck. Optimus Klein, on the other hand, led KSU to a round robin Big XII championship and also dismantled Miami, the second best team in the ACC. It's lone loss to Baylor should no longer be frowned upon given the Bears strong finish. Klein is clearly the Heisman frontrunner imho. His body of work for his career should be given some consideration as well...Manziel hasn't won shit, yet...but the voters will probably fall for the nickname...you watch.
