Pre Week 7 Heisman Status

1. Denard Robinson QB/Michigan - While he struggled last game against Michigan State throwing 3 interceptions, he is still averaging more than 360 all-purpose yards per game. He has led Michigan to a 5-1 record this season. He leads the nation in rushing yards with 991 yards. Robinson also has 9 rushing touchdowns and 8 passing touchdowns. If he can keep up these statistics and lead Michigan to a good season, he will without a doubt be the Heisman winner, but he has to go back to how he was playing before the Michigan State game.

2. Kellen Moore QB/Boise State - If he can lead his team to an undefeated season, he will be a contender for the Heisman. He has to get them to a perfect season though. This would make it their second straight undefeated season. Moore has already thrown for 14 touchdowns and 1,336 yards passing. He has only thrown 1 interception too. Boise does not have many tough games left, the main one being against Nevada. If Boise goes undefeated, Moore will get a lot of consideration.

3. LaMicheal James RB/Oregon - While he missed the first game of the season, he has already racked up 848 yards through the ground. He also has 9 touchdowns thus far. In Oregon's key matchup against Stanford, James had 247 yards on 31 carries and 3 touchdowns. James should surpass 1,500 yards this season and he will be a key part to Oregon's season and helping them try and go undefeated this season.

4. Terrelle Pryor QB/Ohio State - Pryor did not have a great game against Illinois or he may be higher then he is right now. Pryor is going to have to prove he is a Heisman contender and he can start this weekend against Wisconsin. If he struggles in any of his big games left, it will be tough for him to win the Heisman with the other candidates that are out there. Terrelle Pryor has thrown for 1,349 yards and 15 touchdowns thus far, and rushed for another 3.

5. Cam Newton QB/Auburn - When was the last time Auburn was 6-0? When they were shut out of the National Championship game and went 13-0. Well Cam Newton has them there again. He is a former QB for the University of Florida, then Blinn College and now Auburn. Newton has thrown for 1,138 yards and 12 touchdowns so far. He has already rushed for 672 yards and 9 touchdowns. He will need to improve his passing to win the Heisman this year though.

Watch list:
Taylor Martinez QB/Nebraska
Andrew Luck QB/Stanford
Kendell Hunter RB/Oklahoma State
Justin Blackmon WR/Oklahoma State
Ryan Mallett QB/Arkansas

College Football Fans

I am a loyal Ohio State fan but sometimes I get annoyed with Tressel, Pryor, and the play calling. But something I can get really annoyed with is fans. They get so eager to post something that makes no sense or something just to stir up some other fans. Right now all I see on the college football board is Ohio State is going to beat Iowa, Boise State is a fake, Oregon should play for the National Championship, Cincinnati is great, Tebow Tebow Tebow, and Rich Rod should be fired. Now I am going to talk about all of them in order I said them.

Ohio State is going to beat Iowa should not even be on the board yet. They still have to play Penn State next week. Also, remember how we lost to Purdue? That could easily happen agaisnt Iowa. Don't get too excited yet because the season isn't over yet. Things could still happen. For all we know, Pryor and Bauserman could both get injured next week and we would have to play a guy who is redshirting this year. I am not saying don't be passionate, I am saying don't look ahead of next week against Penn State.

Boise is a fake is a false statement. They beat Oregon. I will give Oregon some slack that it was the first game for a new head coach and they have changed ever since that game. Yes Boise has not played the best schedule, actually it is quite horrible. Oregon is the only team that is actually good that they played and they beat them. They are undefeated right now and any team that is undefeated should still be considered a very good football team.

Oregon fans, you lost to Boise and that hurt you. Luckly the voters have seen your team get red hot and play the best football of any team in the country right now. Unfortunatly that loss in my opinion will hurt you. I don't see Florida, Texas, Iowa, Cincinnati, or Alabama losing to put you in place to play for it. It doens't matter if you are playing the best if you still have that loss it will cost you. You still have hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel but it is closing quick.

Cincinnati, be realistic. You really haven't play a really good football team yet and I think if you would play Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Alabama, or Oregon, you would lose by double digits. If Tony Pike's injury continues to linger it could cost you a game and possibly a chance at the BCS National Championship game or even a BCS birth. Your backup is good but he is still no Tony Pike and he is the guy you need to be successful.

I hate Tebow. I will be honest. I think he is good QB but not the "Greatest College Football Player Ever." He is not playing well this year but somehow they are still undefeated. There team was better last year with Percy Harvin then they are this year. Tebow may have records and a Heisman but I still think that Heisman should have went to Darren McFadden.

To Michigan fans, your team sucks. Rich Rod ruined your history in a matter of a year and a half. You are on your way to possibly not making a bowl game again for the first time in 50 years. The problem is, you owe him too much money. You paid West Virginia 4 million dollars for this guy? That has to be the worst 4 million dollars they ever spent. You guys could have had Greg Schiano would probably would have gotten you better results. Just remember, Jim Tressel has only lost to you once.
