Decision On FSU QB Winston Coming Soon, Heisman Watchers Hold Breath

jameis-winstonWe’re not big fans of the Heisman Trophy here at MrSEC.com.  As we’ve spelled out many times, the criteria for winning the overhyped award change from year to year and from voter to voter.  Peyton Manning loses out to Charles Woodson, then Champ Bailey puts up better numbers than Woodson and doesn’t come close to winning.  It’s a nonsense honor.

That said, many of you care a great deal about the Heisman.  No clue why, but you do.  So those of you who are interested should keep your ears open this afternoon.  The State Attorney of Florida will hold a press conference at 2 o’clock today to announce whether or not Florida State quarterback — and Heisman favorite — Jameis Winston will be charged with sexual assault.

Winston’s troubles began on December 7th of 2012 when he had sexual relations with a female FSU student.  He says the sex as consensual.  The young woman told police that she had been raped.  While the State Attorney’s decision will have a massive impact on the lives of both the accuser and the accused, today’s press conference will also affect the Heisman race.

If Winston is charged with sexual assault, you can be sure he will not win the Heisman Trophy, despite the fact that he’s the heavy favorite.  But just having his name attached to such a crime might have already cost him several votes — innocent or not.

The online betting site Bovada.com lists Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch (5-1), Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller (12-1) and Alabama signal-caller AJ McCarron (15-1) as the three most likely to take home the award should Winston (1-10 odds) not land it.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is no longer listed as a candidate by Bovada.

 

(UPDATEWinston will not be charged with sexual assault.)
