Heisman Top 10

CSTV.com has partnered with the world-renowned Heisman Pundit to create a "Blogger Heisman Poll." HP was gracious enough to invite me to be one of the nine bloggers who will submit a Top 10 every week, which should be published by Thursday on the main site. In the meantime, you can enjoy my Top Ten.

1. Brady Quinn, Notre Dame- Torching a good Penn Sate defense for 287 yards and 3 TDs bodes nearly as well as the media hype surrounding Notre Dame’s savior.

2. Troy Smith, Ohio State- As if getting out of Austin with a win wasn’t impressive enough; Smith struck a pose with 269 passing yards and 2 TDs against the Lonhorns.

3. Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma- He didn’t get a whole lot of attention against Washington, but put up some great numbers while running strong in the fourth quarter to put his team in the win column.

4. Chris Leak, Florida- The Florida Quarterback put up some excellent numbers against Central Florida (352 yards, 4 TDs), but still has a difficult schedule to weather in the coming weeks.

5. Brian Brohm, Louisville- As long as Louisville continues to win, and as long as he can put up good-looking numbers, Brohm is going to hover around this number five spot.

6. Ted Ginn, Ohio State- It’s not going to be easy to continue, but the Ohio State WR/KR proved he still belongs on the list with an electrifying performance against Texas.

7. Kenny Irons, Auburn- Did anyone else notice that he only had 69 yards (3.3 avg) rushing against Mississippi St? Another performance like that and he’s done for.

8. Garret Wolfe, Northern Illinois- I’ll be honest, even I didn’t catch his game against Ohio, but 196 yards rushing sounds good no matter who you’re playing.

9. Steve Slaton, West Virginia- There’s no doubt he’s got some great looking numbers, but c’mon, even I could put up 100 yards on the ground against Eastern Washington.

10. Eric Ainge, Tennessee- Big day against Air Force, but just how good is Tennessee? Let’s see how he does against the SEC teams before moving him any higher.
