John Clay Has Heisman Written All Over Him After a Dominating Performance In Week One

Even after Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy scandal, the trophy is as special as ever, given to only the most elite of college players.

Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, and Mark Ingram are just a few of the past winners. This season quite a few players could find themselves raising the trophy in New York, celebrating a special year.

Let me preface my argument by conceding the following:

No, John Clay is not the "best player in college football."

Yes, Clay shares carries, which may take away from his production. (Montee Ball had 2 touchdowns in week one)

No, Clay is not even the "best running back in college football," at least according to most talking heads.

However, Clay has one thing that almost none of these Heisman "front-runners" have: he has arguably the best offensive line in football and as any running back will tell you, if you can get a hole to run through, your job is made that much easier.

So here's my case for John Clay's Heisman chances in 2010 and what he needs to do to win the award.
