ESPN's Scott Van Pelt Says There's No Point In Giving Out The Heisman If Ohio State's J.T. Barrett Isn't A Finalist

Ohio State's J.T. Barrett is the best quarterback in the Big Ten this year, and is one of the best players in America. The Buckeyes' quarterback has been a star in 2014, completing 64 percent of his passes for 2,356 yards, 29 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He's also been great running the ball, as he has ran for 771 yards and nine touchdowns.

Today, ESPN's Scott Van Pelt discussed Barrett's Heisman aspirations, and said that if he's not a finalist for the award, there's no point in even giving it out.
