Who Will Get Tim Tebow's Heisman Vote?

The New York Times' Pete Thamel -- who, in addition to being the NYT's national college football reporter, understands Florida football as well as anyone -- was at the South Carolina game and happened to ask Tim Tebow who he would give his Heisman vote to.

Tebow answered that he didn't know -- good answer. The race is still too close to call. If I had a vote and the season ended today, I would pick Stanford RB Toby Gerhart, who was the face of the Cardinal's epic destruction of USC in LA on Saturday. (And my No. 2 would be CJ Spiller.)

But Heisman voters have proven to be a pretty unsophisticated bunch -- part of the problem of having 900 voters, most of whom have no business being voters. It will still likely come down to Colt McCoy vs. Ingram (if Bama beats Florida) or Tebow (if Florida beats Bama).

And that would be a shame. Gerhart and Spiller have earned serious consideration as the best player in the country. (BTW: Ingram isn't better than either of those two.)
