Things are kind of boring in Heisman-land right now.
- Reggie Bush, USC-Quiet weekend, but a little more impressive body of work right now than Vince Young, who went absolutely nuts after a sluggish start.
- Vince Young, Texas-Unfortunately had a great game during a quiet time against a diminuitive opponent. That kind of game, against Ohio State, would have won him the award in September.
- Matt Leinart, USC-Put together a string of nice games, looking like last year's Heisman winner.
- Brady Quinn, Notre Dame-Team could be in the top five by the end of the year.
- Maurice Drew, UCLA-Important factor in the impressive late comeback against Stanford. Among top players in nation in all purpose yards and scoring.
- Marcus Vick, Virginia Tech-Piloting gritty team through start of rough final slate.
- Laurence Maroney, Minnesota-No longer leading the nation in running, and team is in free fall mode. Outstanding early run though.
- DeAngelo Williams, Memphis-Leading rusher in America against opponents doing their best to stop him.
- Drew Olson, UCLA-Team is undefeated, has great numbers, and is captain comeback of late.
- Brian Calhoun, Wisconsin-When you can have airport discussions with strangers about a back, he's having a good season. Scores a lot, and starting to string together some impressive run/catch games.
- D.J. Shockley, Georgia-Injury killed his season and team's dream season. Will return, but the damage is done.
- Michael Robinson, Penn State-Why not? Not a very good QB, but is The Man for a team that's beaten some good opponents and should play in a nice bowl.
