2011 Heisman Thread

And DCDuck, Case gets no love because he plays for a team that throws the ball about 50 times per game, and he plays crappy teams. Of course he's going to have great stats.

That didn't stop Matt Leinart from winning it back when the Pac-10 was The USC & Associates Conference.

and how's he doing in the pros?

Why does that matter?

Alright, so here's the guys who have a realistic shot (in no order):

Robert Griffin III

Andrew Luck

LaMichael James

Kellen Moore (a LOT of chips have to fall into place for him)

Russell Wilson

Guys with a shot, but with some help:

Darron Thomas (has to put up better numbers than LMJ)

Tyrann Matheiu (suspension killed him)

Trent Richardson (needs a huge game)

Landry Jones (under the radar)

Case Keenum (Houston's winning, putting him in a good position)

Denard Robinson (needs to bounce back)

Justin Blackmon (totally under the radar)

Long Shots/People We Forget:

Brandon Weeden

Ryan Broyles

Nathan Scheelhaase

Geno Smith

So 181 yards and 2 td's against Florida, and 183 yards and 4 td's against Ole Miss aren't big games? Sure, a 200 yard game will help his cause (especially if LaMichael James comes back going at the same pace he was), but he's had the big games. The only thing holding him back is the fact that LMJ is on pace to have Barry Sanders -like numbers, and considering he's going up against the best defenses in the world, that's very possible. And I don't think DT has a shot. With the emergence of LMJ as a star again, even though he has 17 tds and only 3 picks, he's going to have to have more Nevada games, and i don't see that happening with the running game Oregon has.

If anyone from Illinois is on that list it should be A.J. Jenkins. He's actually leading the nation in receiving yards right now. It doesn't really matter though because neither of them will (or should) be in serious conversations about winning the Heisman.

He doesn't belong there. He hasn't been as dominate as he was last year. A lot of teams have been doubling him and slowed him down. Losing most a game versus Missouri didn't help and Tulsa shut him down to have an average day.

OK, so Russel Wilson's Heisman hopes: Dead or Alive?

Still alive, I think. At this very moment, I don't feel quite ready to write him off just yet. There's still a chance Wisconsin could make the Rose Bowl. If that happens, I believe he's still in it. If not, then I think he's done.

No chance to win, but should be in the conversation:

Tajh Boyd (160.1 Passer Rating / 24 TD - 3 Int)

Absolutely. How he's not in it and Landry Jones is I have no idea.

And if you're looking for a guy who's not really a Heisman candidate, but a candidate for the best player nobody knows about, how about Blaine Gautier of Louisiana Lafayette.

This guy is putting up great stats for an otherwise terrible team. This team might be 2-6 or 1-7 without him.

System quarterbacks rarely win. None of Texas Tech's backs ever did, nor Hawaii.

Mostly good player + high-profile team usually equals Heisman.

I'm mOre concerned with position awards. I'd put Ryan Swope from Texas A&M as a Biletnikoff front-runner. He's the next Wes Welked
