Our Thoughts

Brian- I have to admit, at about 8 pm Saturday night I had my doubts about whether Vince would be atop my poll again this week. Then somehow over the next couple of hours he managed to cement his position there more than ever. In the first half he looked shaky and the whole team’s play reflected that. It took exactly 52 seconds for him to turn that all around in the second half. Young once again showed he was not only the nation’s most dynamic player, but that he’s also the most valuable to his team. He has his signature passing game (Colorado), his signature rushing game (Oklahoma State), and the 81 yard touchdown run (Donovan Woods is probably still looking for his jock) is now his signature highlight.

Matt – Looks like ESPN has finally seen the light and put Vince Young at the #1 spot in their Heisman Watch. With Vince’s ridiculous performance on Sat and Reggie Bush having zero impact, it was only the logical thing to do. How Vince is still getting a 3rd place vote is beyong me.

If Maroney has a huge day against Indiana, which I think he will, and Reggie has another non-impact day, I will have to seriously consider moving Reggie to the #3 spot.

    I don’t know if a huge day over Indiana is going to do it for me, he’s still got a chance to pass Bush (in my eyes) but Indiana isn’t exactly a marquee defense.

    How is Maurice Drew getting so much ESPN love? If you’re a running back and Vince Young is out rushing you, you don’t have any place near the Heisman Trophy.
