I can't believe I just wrote the tags "Tate Forcier" and "Heisman" after the second game of the season, but FWIW, he as one 5th place vote in ESPN's Heisman Watch. Link below. In the words of Alan Greenspan, let the irrational exuberance commence.
A quick question for anyone that has an ESPN insider account. This link:
is to the ESPN 'Week 1 Heisman Predictor' claiming "With Bradford out of the race, a freshman QB enters the Predictor picture".
Now, while part of me really wants this to be Tate, I must be realistic here (it's probably Barkley because OMGUSCLOLZ). I just need to know who this frosh QB is so I can stop obsessing about it.
Also, I'd like to officially start the "Tate for Heisman" campaign.
Doing it anyway? Hell yes.
Follow me on this...
I did state it was outlandish. Forget what I said in my previous post.
It came to me in a dream last night. I was reading the following headline:
PRYOR = CLARETT & BOLTS FOR THE NFL TOO SOON;
I still feel negative Brian points coming. I can take it like a man!
Jimmah is one of the also rans in the race for the Heisman. What is this World coming to?
Olin said some things that were ok in his latest mailbag, but then there was this intelligent line:
No primarily defensive player won the Heisman until Michigan cornerback Charles Woodson did in 1997. That season, I voted for Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning, who was denied mainly because the Volunteers lost to Florida for the fourth time in a row.
Riiiiiiight, Olin. It had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Woodson was the better football player. Not only that, but never beating your arch-rival (let alone playing horribly against them) has absolutely zero bearing on determining how great you are as a player? Well done Olin, well done. Woodson not only was the superior football player (go watch his hightlights again if you need to) but in his heisman winning season he played a key role in vanquishing his team's arch-rival, something Peyton failed miserably at. While there's no denying that Peyton was very good, there is no way he deserved it more than Woodson. I'm sure there are many of you on here that have better arguments than I on this topic, but I just couldn't believe that Olin would paint it as "Peyton lost the heisman, Woodson didn't win it".
I was wondering where our National Championship and Heisman trophies are located.
USC has a hall devoted to all of theirs where the public can go and see them, but I can't say I've heard of Michigan having a similar place.
Any knowledge on the subject?
