I know it's not the Heismen Koop, but the Maxwell Award is a very prestigious award. It goes all the way back to 1937... it is one of the oldest awards in college sports. Although history says it is a good indicator of who will win the Heismen... the last five Maxwell Award winners did not go on to win the Heismen.

the only way they get to it first is if they run to it while the longhorns are celebrating their national championship victory :grin: our d is way better then theirs, our special teams overall is better, and we got just as much weapons on offense, jamal charles, selvin young, limas sweed, ramonce taylor.... they are very underrated players because vince takes all the spot light. it's gonna be one hell of a game but longhorns will be the winners
