Tom Jones' Two Cents

Sports analysis, perspective and more.

I am ...



Tim I Am Legend Moron. I'm talking about Tim Brown.

Someone needs to take Brown's Heisman voting privileges away. Brown, who benefited from the Notre Dame PR machine and a couple of punt returns against a stinky Michigan State team to win the 1987 Heisman Trophy, was quoted as saying he doesn't even have Florida's Tim Tebow on his ballot. To quote Mr. John McEnroe: "You CANNOT be serious!''

Listen, Tim, if you want to make a case for Arkansas' Darren McFadden, I'll listen for a few seconds before rolling my eyes. But to say you don't even have Tebow in your top three? That's just stupid.

Here's the worst part: Brown said muttered something about Tebow's team losing three games. This guy is something. Did he forget that his team lost three games (four if you count the bowl game) when he won the Heisman????? And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't another Notre Dame guy (Paul Hornung) win a Heisman in a season when his team only won two games? And lost eight?

Besides, I don't remember Tebow being on the field when Auburn, LSU and Georgia were driving the ball down Florida's defense.

I think Tebow is going to win the Heisman on Saturday, but if he loses by a couple of points because Tim Brown didn't have him among his top three, not only should they consider taking away Brown's ballot, but I think we should take away his Heisman.

Seriously, Tim, if you can't treat your toys nicely, we're just going to have to take them away.
