Heisman Watch 2010

#1 Denard Robinson: Denard Robinson has superior speed along with the incredible ability to cut back in an instant. Through five games (technically 4 ½) Denard has rushed the ball 98 times for 905 yards and eight touchdowns and has passed for 1,008 yards and seven touchdowns. Robinson has led two game-winning touchdown drives already and has Big Blue back on the college football map.

#2 LaMichael James: James has rushed the ball 89 times for 732 and is averaging a little over 185 yards a game. LaMichael is the focal point behind what could be the best offense in the country and the Ducks are currently ranked #3 overall in the country.

#3 Cameron Newton: Newton has led the Auburn Tigers to the #8 ranking in the country which is very impressive when you consider they weren’t predicted to be a factor in the SEC preseason. He has thrown for 928 yards and 12 touchdowns while running for another 474 and 5 TD’s. Auburn still has to get through Arkansas and LSU at home, but if they can roll into their November 26th matchup against Alabama undefeated Newton could be the leading candidate for the Heisman.

#4 Mark Ingram: Ingram is be the best running back in the country, but Trent Richardson is taking too many possible carries from him. Couple that with the fact Ingram missed the first two games of the year and you have a mountain I’m not even sure Ingram can climb.

#5 Kellen Moore: Kellen will be in the picture all year because he plays for America’s beloved Boise State Broncos. If Robinson was to get hurt, sentiment could start to swing toward Moore as a legitimate candidate. Moore currently has a touchdown to interception ratio of 11-1 and has thrown for 1069 yards.

LaMichael James Pinched

Freshman running back LaMichael James was incarcerated earlier today on charges of “strangulation, assault and menacing.” James was a lighting bolt in Oregon’s backfield this past year and was a sound replacement for LeGarrette Blount after he was kicked off the team for his sucker punch in the Boise State game. LaMichael scored 14 touchdowns and ran for 1,546 on 6.7 yards a carry which has many Oregon faithful believing he is going to be a superstar. It was only a few weeks ago that quarterback Jeremiah Masoli was cuffed on theft charges so something seems to be in the water these days up in Eugene. No one knows right now if any charges will stick on either player, but if they do the Ducks program could be in some trouble. Chip Kelly can’t be too proud of what is going down right now!
