Heisman Statements

Yesterday, we saw Collin Klein and the Kansas State Wildcats embarrass West Virginia and Geno Smith. And, we saw Jeff Driskel and the Gators destroy South Carolina. So, how did that all affect the Heisman race?

Collin Klein

The Front-Runner: Collin Klein

Klein was on the outside looking in when he entered yesterday against West Virginia. I mean how, could a tough, weird-throwing quarterback like that, with his unorthodox team win the Heisman? But, his team showed up against the Mountaineers. And, I mean showed up. Geno Smith looked like a middle school student against All-Pro defenders out there. He has no shot at the Heisman, with two losses, both of them plain embarrassing. Due to the fact Matt Barkley has lost already, Smith is slumping, Montee Ball hasn't looked like himself and their is no Tyrann Mathieu roaming for the Tigers anymore, he moves here just because nobody else can.

Don't Forget About: De'Anthony Thomas, Johnny Manziel

If you thought we wouldn't have the most exciting player in college football well you were wrong. Thomas has to be in talks after a magnificent season so far. The Ducks are undefeated and look like they wil get in a major bowl which is always a good time to showcase yourself, as Thomas will do. Manziel is an interesting thought. He probably won't win it this year but in the future he'll be on top of many people's lists. If the Aggies could have won against LSU, I think he would be talked about more.

The Tebow 2.0: Jeff Driskel

Que the Tim Tebow comparisons. The Gators are undefeated and have taken down LSU and South Carolina now and most of the reason why is because of their quarterback Jeff Driskel, who barely had the starting job at the beginning of the year. Driskel is a decent thrower but he does most of his damage on the ground. If the Gators finish the regular season undefeated don't think Driskel won't be on a lot of people's minds.

The Defensive Studs: Manti Te'o, Damontre Moore, Phillip Thomas

Te'o is kind of a dark horse at the moment because of the fact, of course, that he plays linebacker. He is truly dominant though and plays at one of the biggest college football centers in the United States, which can help or hurt you. Damontre Moore, from A&M, is proving dominant on the D-Line recording 9.5 sacks to this point. He doesn't really seem like a realistic Heisman contender like Ndamukong Suh was a couple of years back. Want this year's Honey Badger? I bet you don't even know him. Fresno's Phillip Thomas has 7 interceptions, 2 more than Oregon State's Jordan Poyer.
