    i dont see how this isn't mccarron. he's the qb for the number 1 team in the coutnry and has an absurd 19-0 TD to int ratio and that defining moment heisman candiadtes always need with his last mintue game winning drive against LSU

    Remember when Geno Smith was the clear winner?

    Anyways outside of Klein my favorite would be Te'o.

    I hope Te'o is at least invited to NYC.

    He's been remarkable

    But yea Klein is the leader in my opinion

    Has to be Klein.... I want to say McCarron because he is just insanely efficient with 19 touchdowns to 0 interceptions. But Klein is doing it with his arms and legs on a team that doesn't have the same level of talent as McCarron is playing with at Alabama.

    Braxton Miller is having a good season but the Big 10 really isn't anything to brag about this year.

    Kenjon Barner is putting up video game numbers but has the bulk of it in just 3 games. He put up 700 yards and 11 touchdowns against Washington State, Fresno State and USC. But what IMO really hurts Kenjon Barner is the fact that he plays in an offense where nearly everybody who gets the ball has great numbers.

    Kenjon Barner 179-1295-19 for 7.2 ypc

    De'Anthony Thomas 61-508-7 for 8.3 ypc

    Marcus Mariota 72-474-3 for 6.6 ypc

    Every back on their roster is averaging over 5 yards per carry.

    Manti Te'o is a great player and if I were an NFL GM he would be near the top of my radar. Thats a guy you want to build your defense around for sure. But with that said you look at some defensive players that haven't come close to winning the Heisman and he just doesn't have the numbers IMO Just look at a comparison with Ndamukong Suh who I believe finished 3rd in the voting when he had his big year.

    Ndamukong Suh

    85 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 12 sacks, 3 blocked kicks, 10 passes defended and 26 QB hurries, 1 forced fumble

    Manti Te'o

    87 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, 9 passes defended, 5 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery

    Just ask yourself if Manti Te'o would be on this list if he weren't on Notre Dame? I don't think so.

    But looking at the lists and you see Johnny Manziel on there and the guy is a Redshirt Freshman. It goes back to what I was saying a couple weeks ago about top recruits going to programs where they have little if any chance of getting playing time. Texas A&M has two of the top QB prospects coming in next year. Why? Why the hell if you were a blue chip quarterback prospect would you go to a program that has a Freshman quarterback that is setting records and already in the Heisman discussion? Unless the kid gets hurt they have NO chance at beating him out for that starting job.

    Te'o doesn't deserve an invite. I'm gettin tired of the over hypeness of this guy. He's got slightly above average stats and that's being generous and there isn't one game this year where Notre Dame won because of him. If you are going to win or even be a serious candidate for Heisman as a defensive play you have to be truly special, a game breaker. Te'o is not that.

    I wouldn't go that far. He might not have the stats you need as a defensive player to win the Heisman but he is the emotional leader of that team that happens to be top 5 in the country. He has done enough to warrant an invite.

    Klein,Barner, and Teo with whichever team ends up being #2(or #1 if Bama loses) being the deciding factor.

    I'm hoping he gest an invite for that reason. The Heisman isn't only about who has the best stats.

    Honestly, while Kenjon is amazing, he doesn't deserve the Heisman. Does anyone believe Oregon's offense would suddenly be struggling if we had any of the backup HBs handle that role?

    While he has been good his team, who was expected to play in the National Championship game and has currently lost 3 games and looks capable of losing another 2-3 depending on how everything breaks. No chance.

    Do you mean Notre Dame in general or an undefeated team? I think if he was on Alabama, KSU, Oregon he would be on the list. Actually not Oregon unless they were a better defense but you know what I mean. As far a stats, no I don't think he would be on the list if ND had 2 or 3 losses.

    "Struggling" no, but it definitely wouldn't be the same. DAT hasn't looked like himself in the past 4+ games and I wouldn't be extremely confident in a freshamn Marshall shouldering the full load either. He is without a doubt the engine that is running this offense this year. Barner has been under appreciated his entire time at Oregon, and I definitely think he deserves a chance to go to NYC. His stats may be somewhat 'inflated' by the Ducks offense, but he is still doing it on the field (in 2.5 quarters) and impressively so.
