#16 on the field #1 in my heart!
to play football, not to play trumpet
#16 on the field #1 in my heart!
There is no reason this should ever be below a 5. Just saying.
Thank you sir!
he has already sown that award up. No but being serious good for Denard and I cant wait to watch his final season and wish him nothing but the best this year and in the future in the NFL also. Where is the Denard I Love you song I need my fix for the day. lol
Love this song almost as much as I love me some Denard!
If Ball didn't win it when he led the nation in rushing and tied the all-time TD record, he is never going to win it.
Unless he switches to quarterback I guess.
Or starts playing in the SEC.
Ahh yes. I have Denard at 1:4 odds for September Heisman.
Maybe that decided schematic advantage can help win a Heisman one day.
the same award Tate won after his first 5 games? I know it is early but Denard deserves all the credit he gets whether he gets it or not only time will tell.
You know how he earned the nickname September Heisman, right? Like, gaining an average of ALL THE YARDS over the last two years in a certain big September matchup?
Any of this ringing a bell?
I ain't seen nobody do Notre Dame like Denard since Tony Dorsett. Good times, I was a big Pitt fan on those days.
I hear ya bro. Glad it was Denard. I like that kid.
No argument here. You failed at trolling the troll.
You've been owned, boy.
Incomplete. I still haven't seen a touchdown signal. He must have been scanning the crowd for Kate Upton or something or waiting for Kelly's Gatorade shower.
At least he did give Denard some love.
am i the only one that still watches that and smiles?
"Wide open is Gallen...they left him alone..."
If he wins the September Heisman this year, he will probably win it overall. If he lights up Bama he can light up anyone.
we're undefeated going into october, i will most certainly take it.
I have Notre Dame at 1:1 odds for being August National Champions.
Really? I'll bet the farm against that! EZ money.
Keep trying fellas. Enough whiffs and we'll get a breeze going soon enough.
If that's the case, there must be a pretty bad wind storm going on in South Bend by now.
That doesn't even make sense unless you stopped watching after the 2010 season.
Barkley's to lose.
Not sure why he got Flamebaited, but I agree with Lancer. Barkley should run over the PAC12 this upcoming season, he will get plenty of media attention, and USC will easily be in the top 10 at the end of the year.
What's this guy's accuracy? The Heisman is always pretty unpredictable but I wonder how close he's been
Also, has there ever been a Heisman winner who everybody knew was a sure thing from September? I can think of Reggie Bush, but that's about it
No idea, I was linked to this through an ESPN blogger.
everyone called the preseason winner who went on to win it..... Peyton Manning dont you remember? HA HA thanks Mr. Woodson
What are you talking about? I will never forget how proud I felt when Dan Persa took the podium in New York City and... oh wait
Even money on half the blog wanting Denard benched after the first three and out against Bama.
You can't go 11-2 and win a BCS bowl with Denard as your QB, just can't do it.
As Gorgeous Al put it oh so poetically, "I ain't the smartest guy in the world, but I ain't taking 350 yards of total offense out of the game".
You must have missed the several "Devin or Denard" threads throughout the season.
The not-so-silent minority strikes again!
IIRC, most posters were highly in favor of Denard staying on the field. Most of the debate seemed to be driven by a vocal small minority. (Feel free to post the link proving me wrong--wouldn't be first or last time.)
And even that vocal small minority started those threads primarily to talk about how to prepare Denard for the NFL. Most analysts believe Denard projects higher at WR (well, slot receiver or returner) in the NFL than at QB. So, IIRC, the threads were more about developing Devin for what Devin might be able to do in the NFL and developing Denard for what Denard might do in the NFL.
No idea on Denard's chances on winning the Heisman. But he'll definitely have the opportunities to do so. Marquee games against Bama, ND, MSU, Nebraska and OSU will give him chances to put on his resume.
From a distance, I get the feeling that Denard would love to win the Heisman. I also get the feeling that Denard would love more to win for the team. The team, the team, the team. If the team wins as often as Denard wants them to/wills them to (and they themselves want to), the Heisman would be gravy.
McCarron with nat'l title vs RGIII w/ Heisman...I'm thinking Denard would take the MNC over the Heisman with a win in the Alamo Bowl.
Both psyched and sad that Denard is nearly a senior qb.
We will need to be in the MNC hunt for Denard to have a shot in hell and with our schedule I just don't see it. BCS, maybe, but not MNC consideration.
I think Denard will be splitting the Michigan votes this year. What with Ryan recording 20 sacks and Lewan hospitalizing a dozen defensive linemen earning him the nickname "Crushed Sternum" it is just hard to imagine that Denard will get all the votes he needs. I kow those other positions are non-traditional for the award, but voters will remember itsmichiganforgodsakes, the only school to produce a defensive winner of the Heisman and some votes will stray from Denard.
7-1 you say? Denard is number 16... 1+6=7. Also this is the 2012 season coming up and right in the middle of 20 and 12 is 16. The national championship game will be played on January 7... Denard will win all the things.
I like your thinking and you're username....
Win, and Denard is instantly the frontrunner. Lose, and it will be a big uphill battle. So lets evaluate his chances after that game.
Surprised Tyrann Mathieu didn't even get odds yet Crist did. I don't think Mathieu will repeat with so much success next season as he had this season but still, how does he not get odds but Crist and Burkhead do?
Also, Landry Jones has been overrated going on 3 years now.
Matthieu should really try to get some snaps on offense (maybe end arounds or screen passes) to improve his Heisman odds. It's just been obvious that a defensive player can't do it only on defense (even Chuck had to play some offense).
He didn't look like one of LSU's better defenders in their bowl game.
It's interesting to note that all three of Michigan's Heisman Trophy winners never won the award under the coach who recruited him.
Tom Harmon was recruited by Harry Kipke, won the Heisman with Fritz Crisler.
Desmond Howard was recruited by Bo, won the Heisman with Gary Moeller.
Charles Woodson was recruited by Gary Moeller, won the Heisman with Lloyd Carr.
Denard was recruited by RichRod, can he win it with Hoke?
Landry Jones will probably be the favorite throughout the season. Denard might have a chance if he can really lower his number of interceptions.
Denard in New York would be awesome. What a representative for this university
Just get him to NY, cause as soon as he the announcers see his smile, it won't matter who the voters pick, his name will be announced.
This conversation shouldn't really take place until mid-October at the earliest, although it is fun to speculate.
Shock the world
