    List who you think deserve a shot at the Heisman.

    In no order:

    1. Christian Ponder: Good stats and is a solid QB. I'm glad we don't have to play FSU this year. If he was on a good team he'd be getting the hype (2700yards, 14TDs, 7INTs).

    2. Eric Berry: There's a reason why UT hasn't been blown out of any games and it starts with Berry and ends with Monte Kiffin. Superstar in the making and we'll be hearing about him for years in the league.

    3. Suh. Say what you will about the fuskers, but he's as dominant as Dorsey was a few years back. As with #2 though, no guy on D will ever win another Heisman.

    4. Jordan Shipley: 75 catches for over 1k yards for 14yd average. Insane. McColt is nothing without Shipley. Stop him and you have a good chance at beating UT.

    5. Mark Ingram: Bama is a running team, but this guy will plow right through you even if you put 8 in the box. Nasty.

    6. Mt Cody: Freak of nature and athletic at hell as a NT. His 2 FG blocks at UT were incredibly impressive. They bring him out for short yards to help block. I'd love to see him get the ball and carry it in for a goal line TD.

    7. Clausen: His stats are awesome and he's a clutch QB. I hate ND and extremely dislike Clausen (think he's a little punk), but you can't deny that he's put up big numbers (20TDs, 3INTs, 2700 yards). His WRs are great as well, but Clausen is the star on offense.

    8. Masoli: They lost to Stanford yesterday, but UO is a solid team that runs the spread better than anyone else in the nation by putting a whopping on a USC D that hasn't really allowed many TDs this year. Too bad his defense sucks even though they put up 41(?).

    Surprise winner, wouldn't be shocked to see Shipley, his team will probably be in the MNC game, his numbers are off the charts, and he has the look and camera presence to fuel the PR machine. His QB was a favorite coming in but has been to up and down so the attention shifts. Texas is on TV every week and Shipley has been on every highlight show.

    Ponder, Masoi, and Clausen have all had some ugly losses this year and the D guys won't get it unless there is nobody else to give it to.

    Tebow.

    He's got very little help on offense this year and an o-line that's giving up a lot of sacks. Besides, it's hard to imagine that Florida would be undefeated with any other quarterback in the country.

    (Stat-wise, he's in the top 10 in passer rating w/ 11 TDs and has added almost 600 yards on the ground w/ 9 TDs)

    Realistically, I think it's McCoy, Tebow, or Ingram. Masoli was really my favorite, but it didn't seem like he was at the top of anyone's list, that I heard anyway, and took a hit although playing well in the loss to Stanford. The 2 QBs really haven't been as good this year as in the past, and Ingram had a good game on the big stage yesterday, so I'd make Ingram the favorite.

    One guy that should get some hype is Toby Gerhart, the RB from Stanford. He was outstanding against Oregon and is on pace for a monster season. My rankings:

    1. Suh
    2. Shipley
    3. Ingram
    4. Berry
    5. Gerhart

    Yea he's a punk, I hate just looking at that ****er! :lol: But he also has some pretty damm good receivers that are helping him look good. I just hope like hell that Clausen, Tate, Rudolph, and Floyd don't all come back next year.

    It will undoubtedly come down to these 3, and because there's way much emphasis put on winning when it comes to this award. the Tebow/Ingram loser in the SEC championship game will probably be eliminated. :huh:

    I think Shipley should be a serious candidate after the game he had yesterday but I don't think that will happen.

    The Pike kid from Cincinnati, is my sleeper. But Suh would be a great choice.

    Don't think Clausen will be back next year. Not after seeing what happened to Bradford, and if Jabba gets canned he probably won't want to have to adjust to new coaches.

    My list, in no order:

    Suh
    Mark Ingram
    Golden Tate
    Jordan Shipley
    Rolando McClain
    Eric Berry

    Cody Hawkins....:smile2:






    Being a defensive guy, I would like to see Suh win it. That kid is a monster......but I think if TX keeps rolling like they are then CM will win

    McCoy
    Tebow
    Ingram
    Clausen
    Gerhart/Masoli

    Whoever wins it this year I don't feel as though it is as deserved as it has been recently. McCoy is all about Shipley, who probably would deserve it more, but I doubt he'd get the recognition. Clausen will go to NY just because he's on ND. Ingram is a legit contender, without him Alabama is pretty terrible offensively. I think only one of the west coast guys will get an invite. If Oregon doesn't fall all over itself anymore, Masoli will probably go, but Gerhart is a beast. That entire Stanford offense was really impressive. That Andrew Luck guy is verrrrrrrry good.

    I like Toby G from Stanford and McCoy.

    Shipley might get the Biletnikoff Trophy.

    If it were truly the best player in college football, and I take that to mean the player that makes the biggest impact on the field, it would be Suh, hands down. As it is, the only player that has truly impressed me is Ingram. That guy is the hardest runner I've seen in a long time and being on a team competing for a national title, I'd like to see him get it. Both tebow and McCoy are too streaky right now. McCoy will split any votes that shipley might have gotten. I like Gerhart as a sleeper. He's totally old school, Riggins-eske. Fun player to watch.

    Suh is a great player, but get real with this Heisman talk. You have to be a once in a lifetime type of player to have a real shot at the Heisman as a defensive player. He's good, but he ain't THAT good.

    It's Colt's.

    Suh should win, watching him againt OU he was just a beast.

    Somewhere along the way the award was changed from best college player to best college player on offense.

    My guess is CM from UT.

    This talk is kind of a waste anyways because we all know the Heisman is a piece of $hit popularity contest anyways. The fact that they try and equate with the mNC game is a big factor is that feeling. It's overrated just like Notre Dame. :smile2:
