    McCarron has to be the odds on favorite right now. By virtue of being lost in the upper left-hand corner of the map, Mariotta will unfortunately be an afterthought…

    No that it will matter much to the Heisman committee, but I second b4bama with my vote for AJ!!!

    Melvin Gordon from Wisconsin anyone? Or are we just hyping QBs this week?

    Mariota only played a couple of mins into the 3rd quarter. As has been the case the majority of the games he’s played at Ore

    Not a Florida State fan at all, but wow Jameis Winston is off to an amazing start.

    Manziel might have lost to Alabama, but I’d still say he’s right there @ the top. Love him or hate him, he can play. I also think Hundley will be there when it’s all said and done, kid can play. Melvin Gordon looks the part, his issue is that he shares the backfield with James White and some other freshman.

    And they’re still scoring TD’s when he’s out. That’s not a good sign that he’s as important to the team if you have a plug n play offense.

    AJ is going to follow a long line of Alabama QB’s to be great college players that games never transfer over to the league unfortunately….don’t understand how Bama wins so much and their QBs don’t make it in the league…..

    there is no way in hell manziel wins again. bridgewater looked bad against kentucky. brett hundley isn’t going to have enough wins to get into the heisman discussion late into the season. AJ is only a game manager and i think he wont win it because of that. Winston has more tds this season than incompletions, i just hope since manziel f’d up off the field it doesnt hurt winstons chances since he is a freshman.

    Not a FSU fan, but that young guy looks good… I have no clue who will win the Heisman, but the guy I was pulling for didn’t look all that solid yesterday, good thing there is a ton of season left…

    I have to laugh at some of these posts. What have we played two games or perhaps three and this guy or that guy is the front runner? Hilarious. Also, why is some guy from one of the very best teams always a frontrunner or one of the leading candidates. It goes to the outstanding college football player not the best guy on the best team (read McCarron). There are some guys who carry their average teams to greater heights that never get a sniff because the boys at ESPN don’t deem them worthy (That is a story for another time!!). Let’s wait until late October or early November before we start crowning some guy. There’s a lot of games left.
