I believe it's all on the Black Mamba this year with LaMichael James out of the picture for him to get all the touches James were getting last year.

SickwithIt1010 08-18-2012 06:41 PM

Barner is gonna get a fair share of touches...

JRTPlaya21 08-18-2012 07:37 PM

When are people going to realize that E.J. Manuel is nothing but hype....

SickwithIt1010 08-18-2012 07:50 PM

Bu bu but he goes to Florida State, they are gonna return to GLORY this year.

Hurricanes25 08-18-2012 07:57 PM

My money is on Barkley. The best QB in the nation with some dangerous weapons on the outside. Yeah, I'm picking Barkley.

tjsunstein 08-19-2012 12:43 AM

Comes down to Geno Smith and Barkley for me. Edge to Barkley ohviously.

jth1331 08-21-2012 10:51 AM

I'll be shocked if Barkley wins it to be honest.
I have a feeling some "underdog" QB will come out and win it, ala Robert Griffin/Cam Newton.

Watch out for these guys as dark horses:




I think Collin Klein, Logan Thomas, Matt Barkley, Kenjon Barner and Joseph Randle are the 5 finalists. Wouldn't be shocked to see any of them win it. The biggest dark horse out there though has to be Teddy Bridgewater from Louisville. Watch out for that kid

Jason Campbell was a great college QB so thats not a knock at the college level.

But Randle is a stud, I agree with OSUGiants in saying that he might be a dark horse. THey will be running more with a freshman QB.

Bridgewater isn't winning - he plays in one of the worst conferences. I wouldn't mind seeing Klein get invited to NYC - he was underrated and under-appreciated last season. If his passing game develops it will help his chances as well as boost up his draft stock.

Fixed it for you. Campbell was a good college QB with two great college RBs in the backfield.

Who would have thought Carlos Rogers would have the most successful NFL career with all of those studs? Certainly not me.

Just made a $20 bet with my best friend that Geno Smith will be at the heisman presentation. I think he will explode this year for 40 touchdowns.

I honestly would not be that surprised if he was. Good talent surrounded by good talent, playing in a system designed to put up numbers. If he can continue the momentum from the Orange Bowl, that offense should be very fun to watch.

If your friend has the field, then he's probably getting the 20 bucks. Too many worthy candidates to be betting on one player.

Geno Smith will finish in the top 3 of Heisman voting. He's so talented and in Holgerson's system with those WRs a little bit more mature, he's going to fill the stat sheet every week. I love that bet for you and maybe I'm being a bit of a homer but Geno might single handedly make Austin a legit Heisman darkhorse if he continues to excel in the return game as well. I'm so hyped for this season.

All he has to do is be a finalist

If this season is a repeat of their bowl game O_o

That's basically the expectation for the offense all season long. We've seen what they're capable of losing very little on offense. Scary thought, built for the big 12.

Too soon to drop Denard from the conversation?

dezsucks (Bob) 09-01-2012 10:28 PM

Scratch Robinson unless they run the table.

He looked awful. He can not hit the broad side of a barn.

SchizophrenicBatman 09-01-2012 11:02 PM

Damn my pick before the year was Thomas but I didnt expect them to have a good QB. Thought he'd carry them to the Pac12 title and be rewarded for it
