    my favorite thing about this post is that reasons Nos. 1 and 14 are the same. that's awesome.

    Pat White=Mike Vick reincarnated, so we know hoops won't be voting for him.

    And actually, since Troy Smith has thrown some uncatchable balls this year, he's out too. And since McFadden has thrown passes, forget him.

    Is there anyone who hasn't thrown a pass this year? Has Rice? Slaton? Wolfe?

    They get hoops' vote.

    with your reading comprehension skills, it's obvious why you're a former sports editor

    It's really quite simple

    If you take Troy Smith off of Ohio State's roster they're probably still 10-1 right now, or maybe 9-2.

    If you take Ray Rice off of Rutgers they're probably 4-6 right now.

    heisman isn't a most valuable player award, it's most outstanding player. i don't factor that in much in my vote, but that's just me

    Sorry lino, but SI was spot on in its assessment. While Louisville didn't score off the first miscue, it did prevent what almost assuredly would have been a Mountaineer score. And the game changed on the Malik Jackson fumble return TD.

    So both of Slaton's fumbles were indeed costly.

    Bottom line, Colt Brennan is not only dreamy, he's fucking the man on the football field. Let's not forget this guy went to Colorado, and if not for two many drinks, a co-ed's dorm room and a stiffy, he'd be doing the same thing in the Big 12.

    Ok, I love that new ad promoting the Heisman, with all the nicknames/mascots chasing the trophy. But what's the big rock thing?

    Agree with hoops here. I believe in that philosophy with the Heisman, especially since 1992, when Gino Torretta won the award with Marshall Faulk and Garrison Hearst flanking him on either side. An absolute joke.

    That's supposed to be a gi-normous buckeye.

    It doesnt say he's a former sports editor.
    Could be a former sped, riding the BIG yellow bus instead...

    You are high. There is a huuuuuuge difference between Brennan doing what he's doing where he is, and doing it in the Big 12.
