After watching Monte Ball play and then seeing his ridiculous numbers, why isn't he above T Richardson of Alabama in the Heisman talk? He almost gets no mention at all. It almost makes me sick to see what ESPN and crappy sportswriting has done with the best award in college football.
Monte Ball for Heisman
Trent Richardson if its a RB. He played out of his mind today against Auburn.
The Heisman should go to RGIII
Wilson's stats remain ridiculous....it's not his fault Wisconsin lost on two miracle plays. If they hadn't lost those games (both of which he played very well) he'd be a runaway winner for the trophy.
Pick their best offensive lineman instead.
I'd rather have their offensive line.
If the Lions took another first round RB, then there would be way too much money tied up in RBs on the lions. We need O-line help instead, not another expensive RB.
player on his own team. How does he deserve to be in the same picture as T-Rich or Andrew Luck?????
Denard for Heisman.
Richardson just ran for over 200 yards against Auburn.Wisconsin has beaten 9 cupcakes and gone 1-2 against the 3 best teams on their schedule.I could get 200 yards a game running behind those slobs.The holes are so big that even John Clay and Ron Dayne can get thru.Enuff badger dicklicking already.
Auburn's not good. Richardson just hasn't been that great on a consistent basis this year. His impressive runs are very impressive, but he only has like 1200 yards.
My rule: if you had an open draft and first pick of any player in all of college football for your team, who would you take? For me, that would be Andrew Luck, and it's not even a question.
As an aside: RBs are dime-a-dozen and largely interchangeable - take say, Spencer Ware, and put him in Wisconsin's rushing attack. Probably he'd put up similar numbers.
11 game season for Barry Sanders. The record books may change, but nobody can touch that season. Monte Ball will play in 14 games this season
I'd take Fitz all day over him.
But the bottom line is we have Denard and nobody else does!
Denard '12 will be a bitch!
Keep the individual hardware! I'd like that trophy that goes to an entire team!
I was asking the same thing today. Ball has been a beast. How is he not in the conversation for the Heisman? I have yet to see him even mentioned.
false. wisconsin's system always makes a five star out of 3-4 star RBs. ron dayne anyone? not hard to get 1,000 yards behind 5 320+ pound linemen.
regardless, ball's votes are diluted by having to share them with his QB, without which all Ds would key on ball and he'd be nothing special.
also, wiscy lost to two second tier teams in msu and osu. ball didn't play well enough in those two games.
