Because it's the same problem with preseason rankings before anyone has played a snap. Why have preconceived notions of who should be in the running for the Heisman before we play any football? Tre Mason ran for over 1600 yards with 22 TDs scored. He ran for over 120 yards and scored twice in Auburn's only loss of the season. He dominated Bama and Missouri. It's too bad they didn't let him run for 300 yards and score 6 TDs vs both Western Carolina and FAU. He got only 16 carries combined for 160 yards and 3 TDs in those 2 games. He would have topped the magical 2,000 yard mark, approaching 30 TDs for the season. Yet he probably won't even get invited to New York. That's just plain silly.
