    What about Colt Brennan? I know a lot of it iss the system but his stats are ridiculous. It's likely he's going to throw for more than SIXTY TDs this season. They don't play anybody but he was 30-44-1INT-350-2TDs at Alabama.

    15 Reasons Why COLT BRENNAN Should Win The Heisman Trophy…
    1. Has thrown a school-record 43 touchdown passes on the season

    2. Has completed 72 percent of his pass attempts in 2006, tops in the nation

    3. Posts the highest pass efficiency rating in the nation (189.00)

    4. Leads the nation in total offense averaging 401.9 yards per game

    5. Leads the nation in points responsible for with 282, averaging 28.2 points per game

    6. Has thrown for more than 300 yards and five touchdowns in six of his last eight games

    7. Posted pass efficiency ratings above 200 in four games in 2006, including a career-high 243.0 at Utah State (Nov. 4)

    8. Is the team's second leading rusher with 266 yards and three touchdowns

    9. Three-time 2006 WAC Offensive Player of the Week, Walter Camp Offensive National Player of the Week (Nov. 4), USA National Player of the Week (Nov. 7)

    10. Warriors lead the nation in scoring offense, passing offense and total offense

    11. Is 11 touchdown passes away from reaching the NCAA record of 54 set by Houston's David Klingler in 1990 (five games remaining on schedule)

    12. Threw 35 touchdown passes in 2005 and needs five to break the NCAA record for most TD passes in two years (83) set by Houston's David Klingler in 1990-91

    13. Broke the school record for most pass attempts without an interception with a string of 182 (old record was 178 set by NCAA career passing leader Timmy Chang)

    14. Broke the school record for most TD passes in a season with 43 (old record was 38 set by Timmy Chang in 2004)

    15. Helped Hawai'i to an 8-2 record and current seven-game win streak

    Not good, considering he's a sophomore. :p

    Slaton fumbled twice in that game. Louisville recovered the first fumble, and then turned the ball back over to WVU a couple of plays later. So I find it hard to see how the first was "costly," as some of the national opinion-shapers have termed it, because it didn't cost anything.

    The second fumble, the one returned for a TD, that one WAS costly. Cost WVU seven points. But to say Slaton had "two costly fumbles," as I've seen on SI.com, is erroneous.

    They don't play anybody is right. Their opponents' combined record is 20-49.

    and every away game he's had to deal with jet lag, and we all know that's the most important thing

    Our college guy says, as of right now, White's his pick.

    Colt Brennan = David Klingler = Andre Ware. System + Level of Comp.

    Also, against Louisville, Slaton had 230 yards from scrimmage, including 74 receiving yards, with an injured right wrist and then a busted left arm. His fumble was pretty costly, but I don't think one mistake takes him out of some sort of consideration.

    Slaton: 181 carries, 1363 rushing (2nd nationally), 12 TDs ... 14 catches, 165 yards ... 7.53 yards per carry
    Rice: 245-1334-15 ... 5.4 per rush (3rd)
    McFadden: 197-1219-12 ... 6.2 per rush (6th)
    The national leader, Garrett Wolfe, by the way, is less than 2 yards per game in front of Slaton with 48 more carries.

    (Where was McFadden during that USC beatdown? Out with an injured foot he got at a bar at 4 a.m.)

    Among QBs, Smith and Quinn have to be at the top.

    Here's White:
    QB rushing: 106 carries, 837 yards (7.9 per carry), 15 TDs (tied with Rice for 4th nationally).

    Also notable: He's only lost 40 yards all season, including sack yardage.

    Passing: 84-126 (66.7 cmp pct) , 1,142 yards, 7 TD

    His efficiency rating is 153.2. If he had enough attempts, he'd be ranked 14th nationally.

    Not saying either Slaton or White should win, but they're both serious candidates, and they're so good they make up for one of the most horseshit defenses I've ever seen from a top-10 team.

    Mike Hart? He's having an okay year. If he does well against OU, maybe he gets a mention.

    Much of Brennan's yaradage against Alabama came relatively late, when the Tide was playing a soft nickel package to try and kill clock. (This being back when Bama still thought it was worth a shit, mind you.)
