Top 10 Heisman Hopefuls after Week 13
Troy Smith - Rumor has it that Troy is on the third paragraph of his acceptance speech as of this moment.
2. Michael Hart - It does not look like Hart will get his wish for a rematch, but if he returns next year he will be a front runner for the '07 award.
3. Darren McFadden - If McFadden would not have started the season injured we might be talking about him challenging Smith for the Heisman. This guy can do everything from play RB, WR, and he can even line up at QB. He's a special player for the Razorbacks.
4. Steve Slaton - I think the injuries have finally caught up to Slaton. He has one last chance to show everyone what he can do against a tough Scarlet Knight's defense.
5. Brady Quinn - I am done drinking the Quinn kool-aid. Even if Smith had had a bad game against the Wolverines, Quinn did nothing against USC to show that he was Heisman worthy. His little tantrum slamming down the phone on the sidelines didn't help any either.
6. Colt Brennan - Brennan lacked the exposure needed for this award but that does not take away from his stats. Plus he showed that he can do it against a BCS team as the Warriors beat Purdue last Saturday.
7. Patrick White - White is the best dual threat QB in the nation. The injury hurt him against the Bulls, but if his passing skills keep developing teams will have a tough time game planning. White also needs a healthy Slaton for the Mountaineers offense to run on all cylinders.
8. Ian Johnson - The Division 1-A leader in rushing touchdowns for an undefeated team needs to be on this list somewhere. Don't let the blue turf fool you; Johnson is a quality running back.
9. Calvin Johnson - Johnson is still hanging on the list since he is the best receiver in college football, but if Dwayne Jarrett would have played a full season
10. Ray Rice - Rice will get to go head to head this week in Morgantown with two competitors for the 2007 Heisman.
