It is never too early to talk Heisman, and on this week's edition of the Tailgate we look at the five guys that I think will be sitting up front at the Downtown Athletic Club.
First of all I will say that I do not think anyone has an edge heading into 2010. Tebow is gone, so we won't have to hear the Archie Griffin comparisons all year. Mark Ingram is back, but he should be sharing more carries with Trent Richardson this year, which should affect his production.
So who do I like?
I like dark horses and non-BCS conference standouts to head the list of this year's finalists. A guy who plays on blue grass, a "divine" back, a man made of Clay, a run and gun QB, and a sophomore Boomer are all on my list.
It's never too early to debate, so let's get the party started with why each candidate stands a chance to hoist Mr. Heisman.
