Stoops has plenty to think about

NORMAN —

n Ballot talk: I sent in my Heisman vote at the 11th hour Monday. Robert Griffin III led it off, Andrew Luck placed, and Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, who has run for more yards and more yards per carry than Trent Richardson, showed.

Griffin’s a no-contest.

His passing efficiency rating is higher than every other QB in the race, even Houston’s Case Keenum, who may have Andre Ware to thank for being an afterthought to so many voters.

On top of RGIII’s 36 touchdowns against six interceptions and his 72.4 completion percentage, he has run for 644 yards and nine scores. He’s simply the most dynamic player in the country.

Good enough for me.

n BCMess: I accept Alabama and LSU as the nation’s two best teams, but not as the correct matchup for the BCS title game, because accepting the BCS as your championship arbiter also requires accepting the BCS argument of every game counting and the regular season as a virtual playoff. Well, accept all of that and you can’t accept ’Bama-LSU.

All’s fair in love, war and the jury room, where decisions are sometimes made in the name of justice and rightness rather than the totality of the evidence.

The evidence may point toward ‘Bama being No. 2, but it still ain’t right.
