WAYNE ROOT'S HEISMAN WATCH FOR LAST WEEK of 2009

TIM TEBOW, Florida: My choice- because of an intangible not found in his stats: LEADERSHIP. Tim Tebow has a huge National following. He went out in style in his final home game at Florida, accounting for five touchdowns (three passing, two rushing) as the Gators routed Florida State. Tebow has been very solid since his struggles against Mississippi State. Tebow couldn't have scripted a better finish to his career at The Swamp.  And now it comes down for the National Semi-Finals this Saturday- the SEC Championship Game. It remains to be seen if the Voters want him winning the Heisman Trophy TWICE, the rarest of feats. That may have to be saved to someone with more "greatness" than what Tebow has shown this year. He's still behind 2007 numbers. This young man is talented and gifted and one of the greatest field leaders in NCAA Football history. Win or not, we know that everyone wishes him the best!!

COLT McCOY, Texas: When Colt McCoy gets a chance to shine, he does it in a big way. McCoy had the national stage all to himself on Thanksgiving night, and he capitalized in a big way. The senior delivered a dominant performance against Texas A&M, passing for 304 yards and four touchdowns to go along with a career-high 175 rush yards. Being one of the nation's most outstanding player , McCoy steped up when his team needed him, and Texas' normally-stout defense needed McCoy in a big way against the Aggies. McCoy faces another big test Saturday against a top-15 defense in Nebraska. If he lights up the Cornhuskers, there's a good chance he'll be hoisting the Heisman. This may come down to a 2 man race between Tebow and McCoy.

TOBY GERHART, Stanford: My second choice. We won't see Gerhart again until the postseason, but he left us with a tremendous impression by bulldozing Notre Dame on Saturday night. Gerhart put together possibly his best performance of the season in front of a national prime-time audience. He ran for 205 yards and three TDs -- including the game winner -- and threw an 18-yard touchdown pass. Gerhart finished the regular season with six consecutive games of 120 rush yards or more- including remarkable upsets of Oregon and USC. The best football in America- from top to bottom- may be played in the PAC 10, not the vaunted SEC.

MARK INGRAM, Alabama:  Mark Ingram has been the No.1 person most likely to overtake Tim Tebow for at least a month, but then up jumped a game against Auburn. That was his worst performance of the year for the talented running back from Bama. Ingram all but disappeared against Auburn; he was held to just 30 yards on 16 carries. He also caught three passes for 21 yards. He's got a huge game coming up Saturday against Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators. Ingram needs to come back strong or he'll fall out of the race after being a close all year frontrunner.

And one more "WILDCARD" that will never win it because he plays for low profile TCU...but in my book deserves Top 5 consideration...

Andy Dalton, QB for TCU. This kid is for real. TCU deserves a shot at the national title. I'll bet he can keep up with the best in the country in a national playoff format- but he'll never get a chance to prove it, will we? What a shame.
