I made a comment on the latest college football thread that I thought Vince Young would win this year. IMO, he is the difference between winning and losing for Texas.

I see only three viable candidates this year: Young, Matt Leinart, and Reggie Bush. Leinart has a reasonable chance of tying the most hallowed record in college football, Archie Griffin's two Heismans.

Reggie Bush has got to be the press' odds on favorite. Every USC game I've watched on TV, the commentators could be counted on to say "Reggie Bush" at least a hundred times per half. It's almost as if the other 21 guys on the field were there for background or something. WRT the press, Reggie Bush is the John Leahy of college football in that anything he says or does will be reported endlessly. They just love this guy and fawn all over him. That said, he is a tremendous football player, but the reason USC is an undefeated team, vs a one or two loss team, is the QB.

So...the winner will be: Vince Young in a very close vote. He is after all, from Texas.  box

I wouldn't be surprised to see Lendale White, the other USC tailback, as a finalist. He's made a considerable contribution to their offense. I could also see Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn getting in there. I don't think he's quite as deserving, but since the media loves ND so much, I could see it happening.


Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs!

Good points, but I think that Quinn's best chance will be next year. White...maybe a finalist, but this is a three horse race for 2005.

Vince Young or Reggie Bush. Tough call between the 2.

Reggie Bush. The only reason he isn't the runaway favorite is because USC has so many offensive weapons. There is only one ball to go around.

Quoting KROC (Reply 6):
There is only one ball to go around.

Yep, and Young can do it all with the ball, run and pass. I had Bush favored earlier in the year, but like has been said, USC has so many weapons, they'd still probably be near unbeatable without Bush. But Texas without Young is a very good team, but not one that sits on the verge of playing for the National Title.

I think Vince Young is deserving of the honor this year.

Oh, if pressed I'd have to say Vince Young. He isn't my sentimental favorite, but who cares.

I'll stake out the #1 candidate for 2007 now though... Mo Drew is only a junior this year!
