AND THE FINALISTS ARE ...
Two out of the four BIG major awards finalists for the 2008 college football season were announced today.
If you recall, last week Colt McCoy, Tim Tebow and Graham Harrell were chosen as the three finalists for the Maxwell Award.
Today, Colt joins Harrell and Sam Bradford as the three finalists for the Davey O'Brien award for best quarterback.
And just now, our man is one of five finalists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year award - along with Tebow, Bradford, Harrell and Michael Crabtree.
I expect Colt to join Tebow, Bradford and Harrell in their invitation to the Heisman Trophy presentation in a couple of weeks.
The Heisman ballots went out Nov. 19th, and voters have until Dec. 10th to return them. The winner will be announced at the annual dinner on Dec. 15th.
