Jim Harbaugh's Matt Leinart Moment

Many of us hammered Matt Leinart for his comments after the MNC game against Texas when he said that even though USC lost he thought USC was the better team.

Whether or not that was the case the fact is that night they were not. There have been others who have done it as well.

Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh decides that he wants to be a part of this unique group...

Asked what it meant to him and Toby to have the Heisman vote so close:

"[...] It was biblical to me; Toby Gerhart was John the Baptist, out into the wilderness making things straight and being called back into the wilderness to bring Stanford football back. I thought he did everything he possibly could do to win that award; there was not one more thing Toby Gerhart could have done to win that award. But this is a vote and you have no control over voters and how that outcome is going to be. I think he made his case; here is a guy, who rushed for the most yards in college football, scores the most touchdowns in college football and does it against top 10 defenses. To us, Toby Gerhart is the Heisman Trophy winner."

Easy there Jimmy...John the Baptist?

What is he smoking??

Well, unfortunately that aint the way it turned out.

It is sad that this award has lost some of its luster when voters admit that they don't even watch the games. Maybe Gerhart deserved to win and maybe he didn't. You can't blame Gerhart he DID do what Harbaugh said he did but it wasn't enough to lock the award up.

But one thing is for sure...Gerhart wasn't the best that night just like USC was on that fateful night in 2006..
