Tebow Heisman Watch: Up to 4th

Tim Tebow has moved up to 4th place in the latest HeismanPundit.com straw poll. He sits behind Mark Ingram (1st), Colt McCoy (2nd) and Toby Gerhart (3rd).

Things still project fairly simply: If Tebow and Florida beat Ingram and Alabama, Tebow will not only knock Ingram from the top spot, but secure a place in the Top 3 for himself.

As an additional consequence, Colt McCoy would move up to the top spot and likely assure himself of being named the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner, mostly for the Dayne-esque "lifetime achievement" rationale.

If Ingram and Alabama beat Florida, I still think McCoy ultimately beats out Ingram -- Ingram and Tebow will split Heisman votes in the Southeast; McCoy will have a solid block in the Midwest and Southwest.
