Trent Richardson – Trent Richardson may have clinched the trophy with his 203 rushing yards against Auburn. He also added a highlight reel run that has been replayed 1 million times on the 4 letter network. His consistency makes him the favorite.
Andrew Luck – Luck has been the favorite most of the year but it has mainly been about the hype. He is widely considered the best player in America and for that reason he will get a lot of votes. He has put up good numbers but nothing earth shattering. He is still the #1 pick in the draft but it appears he will finish #2 in the Heisman.
Robert Griffin III – RG3 may be the most exciting player in the country to watch. At one point in the season he had thrown more TD’s than incompletions. His stats are ridiculous as he has accounted for 41 TD’s and over 4200 total yards. The only thing holding him back from winning the Heisman is his teams’ record; put RG3 on a 1 loss team and he wins in a landslide.
Matt Barkley – Does someone want to explain to me why USC was not promoting Barkley for the Heisman sooner? He has had a better season statistically than Luck and if it were not for probation he would be playing for a chance to go to the Rose bowl. Unfortunately the campaign started way too late to win.
Case Keenum – This guy should be a favorite in our opinion. He has thrown 43 touchdowns, 3 interceptions and 4700 yards. He has also led his team to an undefeated record. We are not sure why the media is not hyping Case for the Heisman.
Monte Ball – This guy scores a touchdown every 8.5 carries. If not for a couple of “Hail Mary” losses Wisconsin would be undefeated and Ball would be in New York.
Brandon Weeden – Huge numbers on a great offense; will split votes with his WR Justin Blackmon.
Kellen Moore – Winningest QB in NCAA history. He needed an undefeated season to be in the running.
