Heisman Trophy Top 10
by Wayne Root - 09/21/2012
"The Heisman Trophy is the greatest individual trophy in the sporting world"
by WAYNE ALLYN ROOT
1) Geno Smith, QB West Virginia---How's this stat? Nine TD passes, zero interceptions!! He is on pace to run and pass for 60 touchdowns playing in a passer-friendly system.
2) Aaron Murray, QB Georgia---Aaron has done well so far, throwing for 842 yards and eight touchdowns in his first three games. He's the top QB to replace Matt Barkley from a Top Ten team.
3) Braxton Miller, QB Ohio St---Miller's numbers through three games are very close to where Tim Tebow's were after his first three games as a sophomore starter in Urban Meyer's system.
4) Anthony Thomas, RB Oregon---Thomas may be the best RB that never gets to touch the pigskin! Thomas is averaging 159 all-purpose yards per game, which is 17th nationally, but he's only touched the ball 31 times. He replaces Matt Barkley as the hope of the Pac 10.
5) EJ Manual, QB Florida St---On the season, he's completing 71 percent of his passes for 525 yards with six touchdowns and one interception. Florida St has played the equivalent of 3 high school teams so far. It's Clemson this week.
6) Johnathan Franklin, RB UCLA---Three games into the season, Franklin is unexpectedly leading the nation in rushing, averaging 180 yards per outing. He's on pace to rush for 2,160 yards and score 16 touchdowns. If he indeed tops the 2,000 mark, he's going to be a formidable candidate.
7) Collin Klein, QB Kansas State---Klein is an unorthodox style QB with a heart as big as it gets. Every throw and every yard rushing he has comes from sheer will power. You have to pull for this kid.
8) Tajh Boyd, QB Clemson---Boyd's hopes will continue in their biggest game of the season this week as they get to play Florida St. The jury is still out until after Saturday.
9) David Ash, QB Texas--- The sophomore is off to a fine start, completing 76 percent of his passes for 703 yards and seven touchdowns, with no interceptions.
10) Teddy Bridgewater, QB Louisville---His 81% completions will get heads to turn. And that's with 5 TD's and zero INT's. He's a sophomore so let's start the Watch for the next year or so on this QB.
