Heisman Watch...

The second edition of the Heisman Watch is here. There was a little movement after last week, and a former winner has now entered the top 5...

Top 5

1) Mark Ingram (Alabama, RB) - Can make himself the potential national front-runner with 150+ and a few scores against LSU Saturday. Oh yea, a win would help too.

2) Case Keenum (Houston, QB)- Getting more love around the country, Keenum toppped 550 in passing yards Saturday and is in line for a NY invite.

3) Kellen Moore (Boise St, QB) - Moore is now the national leader is passing efficiency, throwing for 24 TD's and only 2 picks.

4) CJ Spiller - (Clemson, All-Purpose Back) - Didn't play a lot against Coastal Carolina, but scored on 1 of his 5 touches. Needs an ACC Title and a big game in Tampa to win the award.

5) Tim Tebow (Florida, QB) - Pretty much has to do it all himself for the #1 Gators. He would need a big game/win in the SECCG to win it for the 2nd time.


Still no Jimmy Clausen on the list. I need more than solid numbers for a marquee program without a signature win. Even if ND wins out, he would have to go bonkers to get in my top 5. If he goes to NY, I may puke...

Prepare to puke, if ND wins out both Clausen and Golden Tate will get an invite to New York. It's not right but all those "clutch" last second heroics against the likes of Purdue and Washington are going to look good when compared to the QBs with goudy stats racked up against "lesser" competition (because you see, mediocre BCS conference teams don't qualify as "lesser" competition).

You are probably right William. The ND love-fest would be off the charts if they are 10-2, even with the schedule they have played. As for "clutch," I hope voters remember the end of the USC game more than Purdue...
