    Video wouldn't load but the story is awesome. Amazing how this has taken on a life of its own and Tua being in the mix will bring it even more notoriety.

    Love the charity aspect they have built into it as well and agree with the story that the twitter account is well worth following and is really funny.

    Props to ESPN for embracing the award as well and making it part of the awards show.

    For those on Twitter, @MortellAward is a great site for HOTY information. There have been quite a few entries and the film clips are great. This year has a special emphasis on Holder Celebrations.

    Sounds like part of a Dave Chappelle standup routine.

    These crack me up every year. I love that schools seem to have bought in on the fun and campaign for their holders.

    specialist groups in general seem to have a really good sense of humor and it is fun to see what they all come up with.

    The Heisman is open to everyone on an FBS roster. Only a select few qualify for the Mortell!

    Simply awesome. No doubt holding is more difficult than what the average person thinks. As I think about it, I've never received the ball like a holder would. I'll have to try it some time.

    Holding another man’s balls in front of thousands of screaming fans is not a job for the faint of heart.
