  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (September, 13)

    If one had to vote on the Heisman today, clearly Michigan QB Denard Robinson would be the easy winner. However, were are not voting today and much like with the AP and Coaches' polls, players (like schools in the polls), don't get to jump to the "head of the class" after two weeks....

  • Blog Post: Heisman Watch (Tuesday, October 12)

    Alabama received a season-high 58 first-place votes (of 60) in the October 3 AP poll but those same pollsters showed the Tide very little 'love' after their 35-21 loss on Saturday at South Carolina.
