The college football season is drawing to a close, and with the fate of this year's coveted Heisman Trophy up in the air, Wall Street Journal sportswriter Stefan Fatsis says the big question is whether Tim Tebow of Florida can become the first sophomore to win the award.

As for college football's national championship game, Fatsis says consecutive losses this year by top-ranked teams exposed the champion-crowning system for what he calls "the athletic and public relations fraud that it's become."

Fatsis talks with Robert Siegel.
