    I feel bad for Peterson. The first game his dad gets to watch ends in a "freak" injury.

    He's gone to the NFL anyway.

    I think Wolfe may be done after that poor performance. Only hope he has is to gain 250+ yards against Iowa.

    Even that probaby isn't enough Size - Iowa getting beat by IU would dampen a big game by Wolfe, IMO.

    I hated to see that happen to Adrain Peterson, he really hasnt gotten to prove himself since his freshmen year. I mean no one can deny he is a great RB, but he hasnt had another full injury free season to dominate. And Wolfe really cant keep up his 262 a game cuz who else are they going to zone on. They dont have the passing game or o line to protect him every game. No other RB has that much pressure on him to be this good. But thats what happens when you average 200+ yards a game. If Wolfe cant keep it up my pick goes to Slaton. I guess I just dont want Troy Smith to win, even though I hate to say it, but hes having a great year.

    Quinn may get some ND votes, but I think he gives up the ball too much, and I can see ND losing another game or two before the end.

    What do you mean by gives the ball up too much?

    Your right about the big games though. Smith vs Michigan. Quinn vs USC. Should be some fun games to watch and heisman hopes will be riding on em. Its Smiths to lose

    Agreed, I think he wins by default if the team wins out and he plays decently. He's a good college player, but not a great one like many of the past heismans have been.

    One INT throws those number off significantly, not a great stat...also some of this INT's could be end of game or end of half hailmarries...

    Quinn is no where near a top candidate but if you're the QB for the Cryin Irish then I guess it's all good. The only good things that came out of Notre Dame were Joe Montana and Bryant Young. I think Troy Smith will win it this year but this Heisman class doesn't seem as good as previous ones.

    Quinn is at 1.72% int per pass attempt, Smith at 1.18%.

    Both look weak, in that area, compared to Houston's Kevin Kolb at 0.43%.

    If it's any consolation, Michigan's Chad Henne is 46% more likely to get picked than Quinn.
    thats not 45%, thats .45%....and it is very very miniscule

    Personally I think it's between him and troy smith. If OSU loses to MICH, and ND wins out, Qinn will take the trophy hands down.

    I believe he is referring to something more along the lines of this....

    Quinn is at 1.72% int per pass attempt, Smith at 1.18%.

    (1.72-1.18)=.54/1.18, this equals ~45%.
