Via the Orlando Sentinel:
"Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield won college football's top individual prize with 2,398 points. Stanford tailback Bryce Love placed second with 1,300 points. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, who won the 2016 Heisman, was third with 793 points.
Mayfield, Love and Jackson were the three finalists invited to New York for Saturday's ceremony, but they were far from the only college football players to receive votes.
Penn State tailback Saquon Barkley finished fourth with 304 points, San Diego State tailback Rashaad Penny finished fifth with 175 points, Wisconsin tailback Jonathan Taylor finished sixth with 58 points and Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph finished seventh with 56 points."
McKenzie Milton finished 8th in the voting.
Milton's season was something special, 249-of-360 passing for 3,795 yards, 35 touchdowns. He's rushed for 497 yards and 7 TD's on 93 carries...and of course, was the only QB in the nation to lead his team to an undefeated record + a conference title.
So, given the back story and the credentials, did he deserve a 1st place vote? Because he got one, from our very own Heisman voter, Mike Bianchi. Now Bianchi claims he's objective, but when it comes to his home town teams, there's always a little extra love shown. Is that why Milton received his vote? Or was it on merit alone? You be the judge...
