With the Heisman vote looming, a few thoughts on this year's race Here's where I see things standing right now:
If the Heisman vote were held today, it would be very close, but Trent Richardson would win.
There are still three candidates who will play this weekend.
If Case Keenum throws for 1,000 yards against Southern Miss, he might win it, but 900 won't be enough. In other words, he's not a factor.
Monte Ball isn't quite that far behind, but he needs to rack up 250 and a few touchdowns in a win this weekend. If he does, watch out.
Robert Griffin III is the one to really keep your eye on. He is listed as probable. If he doesn't play and Ball doesn't go ballistic, Trent totes the little dude. But Griffin is right on Richardson's footsteps, and if he has a big game against Texas--the toughest D he has gone against all year, and it's not close--he could walk off with it. Stay tuned.
I have been reading around the internet, and the analysts are turning against Luck pretty much en masse. He is trending down, will not play again, and will not win the Heisman. Only Griffin and Richardson are in the hunt, and only Ball still has a chance to jump in and join them.
A big game from Ball will hurt Richardson more than it will hurt Griffin.
