in college you need more than 167 yards on 32 carries for the Heisman. Peterson is a great back but that ypc average isn't where it should be for him

Pennington's Rocket Arm
09-10-2006, 05:22 PM

Let's just agree about his talent (for arguement sake). There is NO way he wins the heisman. Even if he ends up being the #1 pick in the draft (I am really reaching here) for him to win the Heisman his team would have to be either undefeated or only 1 loss. I just do NOT see it.

Correct, I am an Ohio State Fan. But i have the Heismen race comin down between Quinn and Smith. The biggest factor will be who performs better in the big games. So far it has been close, but Quinn might be leading by a few votes with the way he play against Penn State. I think it will matter who plays better against Michigan since both team plays Michigan. But since OSU plays Michigan as thier last game it will be fresh in the voters mind when it comes down to vote as long as Smith plays well and OSU wins.

Yeah, Peterson's got some nice numbers, but consider:

*** Steve Slaton (thru 3 games)

*** 62 carries - 503 yards (8.1 yds/carry) - 6 TD's

... where I believe Peterson's got the edge is the fact that Slaton is only a sophomore, & they NEVER give it to a freshman or sophomore

Garrett Wolfe deserves to have his name mentioned. I mean his team did get blown out v.s. Ohio State, But he had a monster game and is a very special player. I think there is no chance that Quinn will be able to rebound to get the heisman. There is just to big of a lead to overcome

That's a tall order with their schedule and their s...l...o...w secondary. Its still too early to get a good handicap yet, so I won't put any odds, but here's my list right now in order:

1. Smith
2. Slaton
3. Leak
4. Ginn
5. Hart

Long shots: Booty-he's a front runner for next year, but if USC continues to win and he continues to look like he has so far...

Believe it or not, Brian Brohm: If he comes back BEFORE the WVU game and U of L wins out the rest of the year and his numbers are gaudy, and U of L somehow makes it to the BCS title game... Yeah, I know that's why he's a long shot. He is a front runner next year though!:D

I think you are right. If he plays lights out the rest of the way, which is possible with NDs schedule being pretty easy here on out, and then dominates USC on national tv he still has a shot. He cant afford another mediocre/bad game or a loss though.

When I said it was easy here on out I took USC out of that. I meant to include MSU in that also because they always give us problems. But there are some pretty easy teams coming up, and they should be able to beat all of them. UCLA does worry me a bit because they have offense that can throw the ball.

If they dont beat all of them what little hope Quinn does still have will be completely gone.

Not shocking that this is coming from a Notre Dame fan. He has no real shot cuase they will lose another game and he has alot to over come with other competition. Notre Dame will lose, But not cause of Quinn. There defense is horrible I mean Michigan only beat Vandy 27-7

Yeah, I don't think that defense has a chance against USC, even without Bush and White. If the corners can't cover Michigan's WRs, then they don't have a chance against Smith and Jarrett. Booty is proving every week to be a capable QB to replace Linert. That D will probably struggle this weekend against Michigan State.

Its not that I don't think he's an awesome back, its just that I think that OU will lose to Texas and that coupled with the Oregon loss will take him out of the running. Its a shame about them getting the shaft in the Oregon game. Stupid Pac-10 officials.

With Smith and Ginn at OSU, Slaton running like he is right now (even if they aren't playing a strong schedule), and Florida having a good season with a chance to win the SEC, I think it already puts him behind the 8-ball so to speak.

5. (tie) Kenny Irons and Garret Wolfe

Irons stats last week weren't great, but he earned every single yard, he'd break two tackles ever single run. Brohm was my number 4, but with the injury, he gets dropped completely.

I don't think Quinn is overrated, but I thought the team was as whole was at #2, and I stil think Weis is a tad overrated. Quinn is amazing as a prospect, I just think Brohm is better is all.

What are you talking about? She said Peterson was overated, so I said Quinn was overated because he is overated. Atleast Peterson produces week in and week out.

Yes, she said PETERSON. Peterson is not Quinn and he doesnt play for ND. Quinn has nothing to do with it, no one was talking about him and you randomly bring him up to take a shot at him. It's fine to not like ND, just stop lieing about it.

It's that you mention it all the time, even when it has nothing at all to do with the situation. We get it you dont like him. If you type it 10000 more times it isnt going to make it anymore clear.

Again I will explain to you. She said Peterson is overated, why is that? The guy produces week in and week out. Id anyone is overated its Quinn. Im done saying it, it will go in my sig.

I look forward to your next Quinn post. What is funny is that instead of making that point that Peterson isnt overrated because he produces week in and week out, you just say Quinn is overrated. :lol: That isnt a defense of Peterson to say Quinn is also. It's just pointless and dumb.

Well I cant deny that I probably do give off that vibe. Though I do think he has a lot of flaws I absolutely think he is a very good player. It's fine by my if people think he's overrated and to think ND is overrated though(hard to deny that one).

Well, you can argue that just about anyone is overrated. But, is there something more than overrated? I see an immensely talented RB who carries a team that under performs and one that would barely be a top 25 team without Adrian Peterson.

They are barely a top 25 team with him :lol:

Ohio State can beat Auburn any day of the week. And I do agree with Majpain that Quinn is overrated.

LSU or Auburn could beat Ohio State IMO

Quinn is very much overrated

Adrian Peterson is a beast

Calvin Johnson is the best player in the country but wont win a heisman because Recievers never do.

Any other subjects we need to cover :lol:

Actually I've been saying I have Auburn #1 and OSU #2. I've also said that if they played, the winner would be the home team. So you shouldn't try and say "in fantasy land" just because I think Auburn is a slightly better team overall. I bet blinders are fun to wear...

I can honestly say I know nothin about Auburn. So I would have no idea who would win, but me being an Ohio State fan, I have to cheer on the Buckeyes! I only follow the Big Ten teams and a few of the more popular teams. So of course my opinions are skewed towards the Big Ten and the Buckeyes!

I'm a Penn State fan, but also a college football fan. I try and be realistc with my teams, even if I cheer for them. So when people say (not you Blade) that OSU(for example) "will WALK over all thier competition" it makes me role my eyes, since the Big Ten is such a tough conference, going undefeated is never easy. I fully expect OSU to win tomorrow. I predict 28-17 with PSU scoring a TD late(making the game seem closer). But I expect the Iowa/OSU game to be really tough for both teams.

I completely agree. The Big Ten is a tough conference that is hard to go undefeated in and most of the time is comes down to end of season when the big rivarly matches take place. How many times has Michigan upset the Buckeyes to crush thier dreams of a National Champsionship. It happened almost every year that John Copper was coach. Now that Tressel took over, it seems the games have been switched over to Ohio State comin out up top. I never expect the Buckeyes to win every game because of the talent of the players that play for the Big Ten Teams.

Tomarrow will be a closer game then it should. If Ohio State starts off as slow as they did against Cincinnati, it is goin to be a tight that may come down to the last series. The good thing is that the game is in Columbus and the home field will be helpin out the Buckeyes.
