Heisman Trophy Prediction and Poll

Earlier this week, MSF’s Jim McGrew posted his Heisman Trophy Preview and Prediction. His pick to win was Robert Griffin III of Baylor, aka RG3, and this jives with what most experts think.

The website StiffArmTrophy.com has as accurate a methodology for predicting the Heisman Trophy winner as anyone. They compile all published Heisman votes by writers who actually have a vote, and use the data to make projections about what will be announced.

As of me writing this, SAT has 231 votes compiled. With this information they are projecting Griffin to be the winner in a relative landslide, stating that he’ll be “77% of a perfect unanimous #1 selection.” This makes perfect sense. Griffin has all of the momentum, has the most “Heisman moments” of any of the finalists, and the majority of the published ballots I’ve seen have him on top.

Also, Griffin is a fascinating kid who truly, truly, embodies the term student-athlete, which is too often a misnomer in major college sports. Not with RG3. He is one of the most impressive great college athletes that I’ve seen in a long time, both on and more importantly off the field.

So I’ll echo Jim and echo Stiff Arm Trophy. I think Griffin will win, and ultimately I think he’d get my vote (though I do think that people are overlooking the impact “The Honey Badger” Mathieu had on LSU’s dominance this year).

But the question is, who would you vote for? Vote and then chime in below in the comment section to state your case.

Who gets your Heisman Trophy vote for 2011?

  • Robert Griffin III (45%, 385 Votes)
  • Andrew Luck (10%, 88 Votes)
  • Trent Richardson (22%, 189 Votes)
  • Montee Ball (10%, 82 Votes)
  • Tyrann Mathieu (13%, 111 Votes)
  • Matt Barkley (you'd vote for him if you could) (1%, 9 Votes)

Total Voters: 863
