Quinn may have lost out on the Heisman this weekend, but he was named a finalist for the Cingular Player of the Year Award which is vote on by fans. Colt Brennan, Ray Rice, and Troy Smith are the three other finalists so this figures to come down to Smith and Quinn like a lot of other awards have this year.
Here’s the details on how to vote according to the Yahoo! article…
Fans can determine the winner by text messaging “VOTE” to “87654” on their wireless phone and casting their votes for the nominees. Fans who participated in the Player of the Week voting during the season will automatically receive a text message with the four candidates. This year’s winner will join former Texas quarterback Vince Young (2005) and former Texas running back Cedric Benson (2004) on the list of Cingular All-America Player of the Year award recipients.
Voting for the Cingular All-America Player of the Year is open until January 5 at 11:59 p.m. (EST). The selection process will culminate during the BCS National Championship game on FOX on January 8 when the Cingular All- America Player of the Year will be announced. (LINK)
Vote early and vote often. I certainly know I would enjoy seeing Quinn named the player of the year during the BCS Title game – especially if Florida happens to be winning the game at the time as I’m sure that would make the collective blood pressure of Columbus skyrocket.
