One of the most wide-open Heisman races in recent memory has entered the final stage, with the finalists for this year's Heisman Trophy being named on Monday evening.
The following players will be in attendance for the presentation of the award in New York City, in alphabetical order:
Montee Ball, Wisconsin
Robert Griffin III, Baylor
Andrew Luck, Stanford
Tyrann Mathieu, LSU
Trent Richardson, Alabama
The iconic stiff-arm trophy will be presented to "the most outstanding player in collegiate football" on Saturday evening in the official ceremony hosted by the Heisman Trophy Trust. The last time five players were finalists for the Heisman Trophy was 2009 when Mark Ingram, Toby Gerhart, Colt McCoy, Tim Tebow, and Ndamukong Suh all made the trip to New York.

[Two Minutes with Bomani Jones is a weekly web series by the host of The Morning Jones on Score Radio - Sirius Chanel 98. I produce the episodes, so yeah, there's that. Enjoy this take on the Cam Newton Heisman discussion.]
Tonight, the Heisman trust will hand its signature statue off to another young superstar of the college game. More than likely, that superstar will be Auburn quarterback Cam Newton. With odds stacked heavily in his favor, this thing seems signed, sealed, and delivered already. With the swirling NCAA investigation, Newton's eligibility questions have led many voters to leave Newton off their ballot. They have gone on to make their opinion heard, claiming to support the "integrity" clause of the Heisman mission. Integrity? Really?
In the recent Two Minutes with Bomani Jones, we ask the question on everyone's mind during this controversial voting process.
Who is O.J. voting for?

Cecil Newton , the father of Auburn quarterback (and prohibitive Heisman favorite) Cam Newton , announced today in a statement through his lawyer that he will not attend this weekend's Heisman Trophy ceremony. Here's the full text of his statement, via al.com:
Now, technically, Cecil's original statement is here; we've chosen to reprint the modified version, since ALL-CAPS isn't very enjoyable to read. But if you want ALL-CAPS, by all means, be our guest and read that instead. Same words, just sort of shoutier.
Back to the point at hand, however, this is a wise move by Cecil. He would absolutely be a distraction at the event, and a constant reminder that the Cam Newton saga is currently (and likely forever) inexorably tied to his father and the large sums of money his father sought. It's a shame, but it's the truth. Without Cecil around, Cam is at least a little freer to just be the football player winning the Heisman in viewers' eyes, and that's all the ceremony ought to be about.
