First reaction: Robert Griffin III wins 2011 Heisman Trophy
It’s gonna take some time for this to soak in: The best college football player in the nation is a Baylor Bear.
Junior quarterback Robert Griffin III was awarded the 2011 Heisman Trophy Saturday night, and it wasn’t particularly close. RG3 received 407 first-place votes, easily outdistancing preseason favorite Andrew Luck and the other three finalists.
We’ll have plenty more coverage Monday or Tuesday, with all kinds of links, stories, photos, videos and more. For tonight, we will celebrate.
Sic ’em, RG3!
