Podcast: Heisman time

With Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manzeil a near lock to win college football's most coveted award, history will likely be made in New York on Saturday night. Braden Gall of Athlon Sports and SiriusXM College Sports Nation joins CBR managing editor Allen Kenney for a podcast to preview this weekend's announcement of the Heisman Trophy.

Braden and Allen hit on:

*Heisman criteria.

*How important should a team's success be in the Heisman vote?

*The cases for Manziel and finalists Manti Te'o of Notre Dame and Collin Klein of Kansas State.

*And a little discussion of the coaching profession and Bobby Petrino's viability as a candidate. (Note: Recorded prior to Tennessee hiring Butch Jones.)
