Can Sam Win Heisman?

Sam2_medium

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON CRIMSON OKIE

In 2007 Sam Bradford had one of the best freshman campaigns for a quarterback in college football history. Bradford threw 36 touchdown passes, breaking the old freshman record of 29. He was also amazingly accurate with a 69.5 completion percentage, while throwing for 3,121 yards and only giving up eight interceptions. The Freshman also led the nation with a 176.5 QB rating.

With a new no-huddle offense being implemented in hopes of creating more offensive plays per game, Bradford will be given the opportunity to surpass last years numbers. The addition of a healthy DeMarco Murray in the backfield will give him a dangerous option to throw to out of the back field.

The competition for footballs most highly touted individual award will be stiff. Last years winner, QB Tim Tebow will return for another season in Florida. Missouri QB Chase Daniel, who finished fourth in the the Heisman race last season, is also back.

My top five Heisman candidates are:

1. QB Tim Tebow (Florida) - Being the defending champion could be both a positive and a negative.

2. QB Sam Bradford (Oklahoma) - A year under his belt, and no-huddle offense will help.

3. QB Pat White (West Virginia) - Big play maker will make weekly highlight reels.

4. QB Chase Daniel (Missouri) - Not playing Oklahoma in the regular season will help.

5. RB Chris Wells (Ohio State) - Will be the focus of the Buckeye offense.
