agree with most ur points...except....i don't think Marquise lee needs barkley to be good. Barkley is overrated. Marquise lee still had 5 catches for 75 yards with Wittek at QB. as long as u have a WR that can make circus plays and have the speed to outrun any secondary, he can make any QB look good.
Braxton Miller...definitely not a "who?". Ohio state went undefeated this year...even if ppl will attribute that to Urban, braxton still puts up legit stats. Look at his play against us (even though it's not saying too much) 249 passing, 4 TDs, 75 yards rushing, 1 TD.
I still have my "Marshawn for Heisman" T-shirt..stored neatly below the "Booya" one...Ebay??
Archie Griffin got another Heisman.
The football 'experts' from east of the Rockies are unlikely to vote for any Cal player. Televised night games start long after most of those geezers have passed out or gone to bed.
And just because posters view this thread rationally rather than , does NOT mean that they don't want Bigelow for a Heisman.
Barner/DAT/Mariota will be in the same system. Helfrich is the heir to the Kelly throne.
Braxton Miller is a legit candidate. QB from OSU.
Boyd/McCarron are less likely, I agree.
But really, Bigelow is about as good of a candidate as TJ Yeldon is right now.
I thought Barner was entering the draft... Anyways Bigelow will start to get some H love if he puts up big numbers against tOSU... He has the potential but we'll see
Too much negative, defeatist attitute here......Muncie was 2nd, came on like gangbusters. He was better than Griffin, but Griffin had already won the year before; therefore, was well know by everybody, not so with Muncie. There may be somewhat of an eastern bias, but that can be overcome. Muncie did not lose because he was from "Hippie U" as you put it. Might be nit-picking, but I just don't like to see negative stereotyping reinforced or used as an excuse. Go Bears!
Most heisman marketing campaigns are launched before October. If you want to be able to tell recruits you can win an H at Cal....
Along the same lines...I hope sonny puts the stats back up on the board. I luv team unity but depriving fans of info is weak.
We'd need to win at least 9 regular season games for Bigelow to even have a shot. Not going to happen with a rookie HC and the schedule we have...
You have to hold onto the ball in order to win the heisman. The trophy has the guy actually holding onto the ball.
