Dawgs: McFadden, not Tebow for Heisman

ATHENS – Florida quarterback Tim Tebow may be a frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy nationally, but he doesn't have much support in Georgia's locker room.

"He doesn't have my vote," senior safety Kelin Johnson said.

Tebow is the first player in Division I-A history to total 20 passing touchdowns and 20 rushing touchdowns in a season, and he's the first player in SEC history with 20 rushing touchdowns in a season.

He has thrown for 2,870 yards, 26 touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 69 percent of his passes. He also leads Florida in rushing with 749 yards. The Bulldogs, though, can't get over the fact that the he's a Gator and that he had a rough day in a 42-30 to them on Oct. 27.

Bulldogs quarterback Matthew Stafford indicated his official stance is Anybody But Tim.

"Let me say somebody so you guys won't say I just won't vote for Tebow," he said. "Let's say (Arkansas running back) Darren McFadden. He's been doing it a long time, and he deserves it."

Freshman linebacker Rennie Curran said of McFadden, "He's all right."

"I think we would destroy him, too," Curran said.

Curran said his vote would go to teammate Knowshon Moreno, who has rushed for 766 yards and nine touchdowns in the last five games and

Moreno, by the way, would vote for McFadden.
