ACC: Week 2 Review

It’s difficult to make a strong case for Heisman at this point within the ACC.  After all, the players making the statistical headlines haven’t played any meaningful games and the teams that have played a competitive game won/lost as a team.  It’s odd because the conference’s most talented QB is a backup (Trevor Lawrence) while[…]

Big 12: Week 2 Recap

Surprise, surprise, the Big 12’s best Heisman candidates (so far) come from the quarterback position.  So far two guys have stood above the rest in the conference best known for high-powered offenses.

And We’re Off…

Preseason hype is now a distant memory.  It’s time to separate the pretenders from the contenders.  The end of week 1 marks the beginning of a season long, grueling process evaluating who the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner will be. We need to get a few unwritten rules out of the way before we begin.  The[…]

Heisman Moments

He has whatever this “it” factor is everybody talks about but nobody can explain.  But if there’s one thing lacking from this Heisman campaign for Lamar Jackson, there’s no clear ‘Heisman moment.’  Many former Heisman winners had a play or a game where we said, “yep, there’s[…]
