Flavor of the week: the "public ranking" of the top collegiate football player has now devolved into which QB (or rarely a RB) on the best team—or a team that just scored a big win—did well last weekend.
As a writer noted in my paper this morning
<<Just a reminder: The consensus top four preseason Heisman Trophy candidates were USC quarterback Matt Barkley, Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson and West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith.>>
The kid's only a RS frosh and has already achieved legendary status at A&M. He's definitely someone to watch, altho how he'll further develop remains to be seen.
If he can stay out of prison. He had a borderline hate crime this past summer that TAMU got rid of for him and had a felony arrest in his hometown brushed away by the local DA right before he went to college. He is extremely talented but his stupidity may get the best of him.

K-St ? The basketball school ? Get real, man. Who would possibly be his competition ? Some LB who's not even an edge-rusher ? And JM did break the former Heisman winners record in his conference, right ? No justice here if JM doesn't win this award in a landslide.
