    I have no problem with Brady Quinn being in the top 3. Another year under Weiss should only help them.

    Man, all this mid-winter stuff only makes me want the season to begin even sooner.

    Edit: Needed more caffeine before I posted.

    I really like Kenny Irons. His shiftiness reminds me of (gasp!) Chris Perry, only I think he's a lot faster.

    Brady Quinn #2 & Jeff Samardizja #9 vs. Troy Smith #5 & Ted Ginn #11...

    ...give me Smith and Ginn every day of the week and "twice on Saturdays" :biggrin: ...not even a contest in my mind (not that I'm biased). :osu:

    Yeah, because Quinn and Samardizja clearly showed up Smith and Ginn when they recently met....:roll2:



    But I don't have a problem with Peterson being in the top 5, because after watching him play against Oregon I believe he can be an impacting runner. The man runs like he's freaking possessed.



    With that said, I'd still take Antonio Pittman and Chris Wells over him :biggrin: .

    Yeah, but if you gave Chralie Weis 6 weeks to prepare for the game, he'd build a gameplan to.........oh, nevermind.

    Out of curiosity, who would you put #1 and where would you put Peterson?

    I'll take Kenny Irons over just about anybody. That dude can flat out run your ass over!!
     
  9. And a lot less evil. :wink2:
     
  10. I'm still bitter about him winning the Butkus. What a shame.

    I remember seeing this on SI about a month ago, maybe longer. Good to see OSU athletes getting love.

    Also....

    Adrian Peterson > Kenny Irons

    As much as I love Troy, and hope to see him holding the Heisman, Peterson IS a BEAST and is my preseason pick. He played hurt most of last year behind a weak line, with no other threats on offense. He will return to form and be huge again this year.

    AP has to be the odds on favorite to win the Heisman. Oklahoma will be a very good team again this year which will help him.

    Purely hypothetical here, but what kind of numbers would Troy need to win the Heisman? Or I guess if he were to win it, how would he win it?
     
  15. Well Crouch's numbers sucked as far as passing so it depends. If he leads OSU to the NC then he won't need to put up out of this world stats but if OSU only goes 8-4 or so then he would probably need 3,000 yards and 800 yards rushing and probably 30 total touchdowns. It mostly depends on what the other candidates do. If he has heroic drives like against scUM then that will definitely boost his status. There's no clear cut answer.
