    You better hope he runs well against my Auburn Tigers or it will be a long day for the Lions.[​IMG]

    Congrats to an excellent running back!

    Still I wonder if this year another Miami back will be taken in front of the RB getting all the accolades (like Edgerrin James was taken before Ricky Williams)...

    (and no, I hate the 'Canes, just wondering out loud - and yes I do think there's a chance McGahee will skip outta town even though he's a soph)

    As long as Dorsey doesn't win the Heisman I don't care who wins it.


    But Larry is as deserving as anyone else.

    I agree, this year's field is wide open for the Heisman. I will say that although he came on late in the year, Carson Palmer is playing as well as anyone in the country (as is his school USC). I watched them demolish my beloved UCLA Bruins in person and came away very impressed. And then he beat up ND's vaunted secondary the next week. He's come a long way in the four years I've seen him play.

    There is no clear cut favorite this season, so Johnson is as good a pick as any. I do think that McGahee will be the best NFL player, though (whenever he comes out). Johnson has great numbers, but he did put up the majority of them against weaker opponents -- call it the Ron Dayne syndrome.

    Still, I would love to see the award go to a Big Ten player. I do not think Banks has much of a chance, since he's not well known outside the Big Ten.
