  • Blog Post: College Football Picks: 2008 Heisman Top 10 rankings after Week 12

    2008 Heisman Trophy Top 10 Update after Week 12 By Larry Ness Pregame Pros Handicapper 1) GRAHAM HARRELL (Texas Tech) Last Week: 1.

  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (Tuesday, October 19)

    The nation's top-ranked team lost for the second straight Saturday (Alabama on Oct 10 and Ohio State on Oct 17), sending more than few 'shockwaves' through the polls. The 2010 Heisman 'race' has felt a few 'rattles' as well and my latest Heisman report follows. 1) KELLEN...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Trophy (12/1)

    The 2009 Heisman race was never expected to include more than three players, 2008 winner Sam Bradford, 2008 runner-up Colt McCoy and 2007 winner Tim Tebow (Tebow also received more first-place votes in 2008 than either Bradford or McCoy). Bradford basically dropped out on the season's first Saturday...
  • Blog Post: 2010 Heisman Preview

    I've always loved the Heisman, as in spite of all its warts and blemishes, it remains the most recognized and arguably the most-cherished individual award in any sport. I began doing a weekly Heisman top-10 on my nationally-syndicated radio show ("Bally's Sports Central") in the early...
  • Blog Post: College Football Picks: 2008 Heisman Top 10 rankings after Week 8

    2008 Heisman Trophy Top 10 Update after Week 8 By Larry Ness Pregame Pros Handicapper 1) COLT MCCOY (Texas) Last Week: 3.

  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (9/21)

    The 2009 college football season began with both the 2007 winner (Tim Tebow) and the 2008 winner (Sam Bradford) active. That had never happened before. Add in last year's runner-up, Colt McCoy of Texas, and it was hard to imagine anyone from outside of this "Big Three' winning the 2009 Heisman...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (Oct 19)

    The 2009 season began with all three of last year's Heisman top vote-getters active. Sam Bradford (Oklahoma) was the '08 winner, Colt McCoy (Texas) was the runner-up and Tim Tebow (Florida) finished third but garnered the most first-place votes (not to mention being the '07 Heisman winner...

  • Blog Post: HEISMAN WATCH (Mon. Sept. 7) by Larry Ness

    I began doing a weekly Heisman top-10 on my nationally-syndicated radio show ("Bally's Sports Central") in the early to mid-90s and have continued it on the internet since. I've got a few changes this year, as my Heisman Watch will not include 10 player but rather just five and then...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (11/17)

    The 2008 Heisman was won by Oklahoma's Sam Bradford with Colt McCoy (Texas ) of Texas finishing second and Florida's Tim Tebow (the 2007 winner) finishing third, despite garnering more first-place votes than either Bradford or McCoy. Never before has a college football season opened a year in...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (11/3)

    Tim Tebow played like a Heisman Trophy contender this past Saturday in Florida's annual "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" vs Georgia, arguably for the first time this season (save his game-winning drive vs Arkansas). Colt McCoy of Texas, last year's Heisman runner-up to Oklahoma's...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (10/27)

    When I woke up Monday morning at 6:00 AM my DSL was out and it didn't come back up until 2:00 PM. About an hour later, my power went out for two hours. By that time I was into my third glass of wine, so I decided to postpone my Heisman Watch until Tuesday. I only bring this up because "my Monday"...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (Tuesday, September 28)

    The first month of the season closed with the AP's preseason top-three in the rankings unchanged. Alabama remains No. 1, followed by Ohio State and Boise State. Those three schools are all led by legitimate Heisman contenders, Alabama RB Mark Ingram (last year's winner), Ohio State QB Terrelle...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (Sep 28)

    The 2009 college football season began on September 3 with both the 2007 winner (Tim Tebow) and the 2008 winner (Sam Bradford) active. Never before had that happened. Throw in last year's Heisman runner-up, Colt McCoy of Texas, and it was hard to imagine anyone from outside of this 'Big Three'...
  • Blog Post: College Football Picks: 2008 Heisman Top 10 rankings after Week 9

    2008 Heisman Trophy Top 10 Update after Week 9 By Larry Ness Pregame Pros Handicapper 1) COLT MCCOY (Texas) Last Week: 1. The top-five teams in the nation did not change in either the AP poll or the latest BCS standings and following suit, I've made no changes to the top-five players in my Heisman...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch 10/11/09

    October 10th could have been dubbed "Saturday Night Live" in CFB. Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford had missed the last month with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder but made his return by completing 27-of-49 passes for 389 yards and a TD. The 49 passes attempts matched the second most of his...
  • Blog Post: Final Heisman Update

    I featured my Heisman preview back in late August and pointed out the obvious.

  • Blog Post: College Football Picks: 2008 Heisman Top 10 rankings after Week 10

    2008 Heisman Trophy Top 10 Update after Week 10 By Larry Ness Pregame Pros Handicapper 1) SAM BRADFORD (Oklahoma) Last Week: 2. Remember when the Nebraska/Oklahoma game meant something special? A week after Oklahoma 'exploded' for 55 points in the first half of its game against Kansas State...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch for Mon Sept 14th by Larry Ness

    Landry Jones, in his first start for the injured Sam Bradford, threw for 286 yards and three TDs to lead the Sooners to a 64-0 rout of Idaho State. Oklahoma has now won 25 straight home games, which ties the school record (also won 25 in a row from 1947-53). However, it was what happened to Oklahoma...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (11/24)

    The 2009 Heisman race was never expected to include more than three players, 2008 winner Sam Bradford, 2008 runner-up Colt McCoy and 2007 winner Tim Tebow (Tebow also received more first-place votes in 2008 than either Bradford or McCoy). Bradford basically dropped out on the season's first Saturday...
  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch 10/4/2009

    The 2009 Heisman race opened with Bradford, McCoy and Tebow all alone in a three-man contest. However, Bradford went down with an injury on September 5 (has yet to return). McCoy has been less than spectacular (although he's been very good) and while Tebow's been Tebow, he suffered that concussion...
