Comment: Once that inclusive evidence allowed Winston to walk away from that rape allegation in Tallahassee it seemed clear that he would win the Heisman Trophy in a landslide. And he did. However, as good as the kid has been on the field (and he's proven to be the nation's best), Winston still walks beneath a cloud off of it. Call me a self-appointed captain of the moral police, but that I could not ignore. So my vote amounts to one fella's small statement vote. And, anyway, what's so wrong with acknowledging the leading rusher in America who happens to be a real student/athlete who earned his degree in 3 1/2 years? These are college guys, right? So academic achievement should matter, shouldn't it? Hello? Is this thing on?
