Another thing. Peep the stats. This season Kaepernick ran for 1,184 yards and 20 touchdowns. He passed for 2,830 yards with 20 touchdowns against 7 interceptions. Do the math, that's over 4,000 yards of total offense. Comparable to Heisman frontrunner Cam Newton's stat sheet. But Kaepernick can't even get a whiff of New York unless it's on a Rand McNally map. What makes him any different than Newton. I guess since Newton had a bigger stage and did it in more spectacular fashion Kaepernick is a mere afterthought. I'm not knocking Big Cam, but the very best deserve to be considered for the Heisman. Just because there is more of a spotlight for some players doesn't mean others with less pub shouldn't get credit.
To me the Heisman is becoming no more than a sham. There should be more players considered and just because a certain players talents are on display more than others doesn't mean great seasons shouldn't be recognized.

Strange Mike, didn't you play here in Detroit. The fans here care a lot. You must've been too busy at the local KFC to realize that.
