The Great Heisman Campaign: Mesko v. Ortmann

Zoltan Mesko enters his fourth year as Michigan’s starting punter (though he also split time with Ross Ryan in 2006), and is expected to be one of the top punters in the nation. The towering Romanian from Twinsburg, Ohio is among the more popular players on the Michigan team, primarily on account of his awesome name.

Mark Ortmann will enter his second year as Michigan’s starting left tackle, having replace #1 NFL draft pick Jake Long. Ortmann missed a game with injury last year, but played both tackle and guard along Michigan’s improving offensive line in 2008. If the Michigan rushing attack improves in 2009 as expected, Ortmann will turn in a strong year.

    While the idea is intriguing (and potentially a lot of fun), would you really do an all-out Zoltan for Heisman campaign? … because that’s where I have a sneaking suspicion that this could lead.

    I love Zoltan (b-school represent!), but I also love the idea of the site getting behind someone who could actually win the award – not that many of our players have that much of a chance either way, given the relative low profile of the team coming into the year.
