The Heisman Pundit recently published his top candidates for the 2008 award and he has Beanie Wells at the top of the list with Pat White at 2nd. Chris Huston, the former SID at USC that runs the site, thinks it's Tebow's to lose this season, but strangely doesn't have him anywhere in his top 7 for next season.
It's fair to have Beanie as a front-runner next season. Hell, he was banged up all year and could easily have about 1700 if he would have received the rock a little more (Washington, Northwestern and Kent State to name a few). He also has a huge opportunity for an early jump with the September battle in the Coliseum looming.
I'm not so sure I follow the logic of leaving Tebow out of the front of the pack in '08, though. A torn ACL is probably the only thing standing in the way of a 55-60 touchdown season for the jort king.
Is Tebow even a lock to win it this weekend?
Small programming note: I'm heading to Hawaii to get married this weekend and posting (at least the football half) may be a little light next week. Chris and Corey will be doing their thing on Buckeye hoops and you guys could probably persuade Mark to stop playing with his Matchbox cars long enough to throw up a football/BCS Championship nugget, so don't change that dial.
Oh, here's our registry if anyone would be so kind:
- OSU football season tickets
- OSU basketball season tickets
