Andrew Luck
The Heisman Trophy finalists were announced Monday, and of them – Montee Ball, Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Tyrann Mathieu, and Trent Richardson – Andrew Luck is the most deserving. This is Luck’s second straight year as a finalist, having lost to Auburn National Champion QB Cam Newton the year before. There was no reason to think Luck would be as effective in 2011, but he was.

In all, Luck has been a pain for this California Golden Bears Alum to watch. He’s beaten Cal twice out of three tries, and overall has thrown for 5,917 yards in his career, posted a 20-5 record, went 16-5 versus the Pac-10, accumulated 6,720 total yards, a 64.4 percent completion percentage, and a 80 percent winning record.

Andrew Luck is a sure, steady leader, who’s toughness is second to none. Who can forget the time Luck flattened Cal safety Sean Cattouse on the way to a 58-yard run that set the tone for a 2010 Big Game rout by the Cardinal, 48-13? Who can forget Luck’s many pin-point passes, some just plain unbelievable when he gets into a zone of performance.

This is one Golden Bear who will be very happy to see Luck leave Stanford. But he should do so with the Heisman Trophy.
