I get a real kick out of looking at ranking by pollster. As always, Jon Wilner sucks. He has us at 12, TTUN at 4, and Iowa State at 8. 

Mark Whicker is another beauty with us at 14 and Florida at 3.

I don't hold it against him, was just providing one option for why this topic has gotten so much traction so quickly.

I think it was this quote “Why would I leave for someone who hasn’t put in a single second into this program?” followed by transferring a few weeks later.

It is a fact we make the playoffs if Michigan beat ND last year.

Not so sure about that science.

I'm really not. Here are the 2x finalists: Tebow, Winston, Watson. That's three (3), right? 

Here are guys who were a finalist (or won) once: Murray, Tua. 

Here are the ones who never were finalists: Taylor, Pryor, Shepard, Bell, Driskel, Woolard, Guarantano. That's seven (7) by my count. 

How is 3/12 almost as likely at 7/12?

#1 Dual Threat QBs from 2006-17 (per 247 composite):

2006: Tebow (Heisman AND a finalist)

2007: Tyrod Taylor (LOL)

2008: Terrelle Pryor (try not to think about what might have been)

2009: Russell Shepard (nope, nothing here)

2010: Blake Bell (results not found)

2011: Jeff Driskel (I believe he watched a Heisman ceremony on TV, but that doesn't count)

2012: Jameis Winston (Heisman and crab legs)

2013: Asiantii Woolard (who?)

2014: Deshaun Watson (He was a decent player, I heard)

2015: Kyler Murray (Yep, another Heisman)

2016: Jarrett Guarantano (dodged that one)

2017: Tua Tagovailoa (decent player)

Heisman wins: 3 (Tebow, Murray, Winston)

Heisman finalists: 4 (Tua, Watson (x2), Tebow)

Consensus All-Americans: 4 (Tua, Watson, Winston, Tebow)

So yeah, that research, at least using 247's data is wrong as hell.

I'll be in Chicago for the NW game and looking for tickets. Anyone have any info on when's the best time to buy away game tickets? I'm guessing prices will probably drop in a month or two. 

Fun fact: last game I went to was at MD in 2014, so no pressure on these guys to win it all, haha.
