Heisman Watch: Week 5

We had some major shuffling going on within our Heisman Watch list.  The top guy, Lamar Jackson,  still remains in the lead but there are plenty of players closing the gap.

1) Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville - Despite the close loss on the road in Death Valley "Action Jackson" still remains in the lead because he was the better quarterback over Deshaun Watson.  Running for 162 yards and 2 scores while throwing for nearly 300 against a very good Clemson defense Jackson came just short of the win when his receiver was pushed out a yard short of a first down in the waning moments down near the Clemson goal line.  Jackson appears to be the most electric college quarterback since Michael Vick and will get the chance to pad his stats this week vs Duke.

2) J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State - Barrett broke Bobby Hoying's Ohio State record for career touchdown passes (59) in a rout of Rutgers.  Barrett threw for 4 TDs and averaged over 9 yards a carry while leading a balanced Buckeyes offense.  He takes on Indiana this week so he will get another chance to make his season stats look better on paper for the voters.

3) Greg Ward, QB, Houston - Ward threw for a career high 389 yards vs UCONN while also completing over 84% of his passes.  Accounting for nearly 450 yards and 5 touchdowns with no turnovers bumps Ward up 2 spots and into the top 3 for the undefeated Cougars.

4) Jake Browning, QB, Washington -  I'll be the first to say I underestimated Browning and Washington going into their Friday night battle vs Stanford last week.  Browning was basically perfect as he threw for 3 TDs while completing over 70% of his passes and zero turnovers in a decisive rout of Stanford 44-6.  For the undefeated Huskies Browning has accounted for 18 total TDs while only turning it over twice all season.  With his performance he is now the leader over Christian McCaffrey in the PAC 12 conference.

5) Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson - Welcome back to the top 5 Deshaun.  Watson led the Tigers to a huge ACC home win vs Louisville in prime time.  Despite the 3 interceptions,  Watson threw for 5 TDs and a season high 305 yards.  With Clemson still undefeated and leading the ACC Watson will still need to get some help from other teams because guys like Jackson, Barrett, Ward and Browning are all having better seasons for title contenders.

6) Christian McCaffrey, All Purpose, Stanford - Tough game for McCaffrey as Washington loaded 8, sometimes 9 guys in the box and punished Stanford throughout.  For the second week in a row McCaffrey was held to no touchdowns running or receiving.  He falls out of the top 5 for the first time all season and could be looking at a tough battle to even get invited back to NYC at this point.

7) Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State - Pumphrey did all that he could rushing for over 150 yards and a score but the Aztecs lost to South Alabama.  He's not out of the race by any means but from here on out he's going to need to put up crazy stats to keep him in the conversation because he plays on the west coast for an unranked non power 5 team.

8) Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina - Trubisky earned his way onto the top 10 Heisman Watch list by leading North Carolina to a huge win over FSU.  With the win UNC is now in the lead for the Coastal division.  Trubisky threw for over 400 yards for the third consecutive week.  For the season he has zero turnovers while accounting for 17 total touchdowns.

9) Derek Barnett, DL, Tennessee - Barnett just put himself into the conversation for best defensive end in the nation along with Texas A&M's Myles Garrett.  Barnett was basically unstoppable vs Georgia with two sacks and a forced fumble.  The win keeps the Vols undefeated going into College Station this week to take on Garrett and the undefeated Aggies.

10) Jabrill Peppers, LB, Michigan - Peppers led a spirited Wolverines defense to a near shutout of #8 Wisconsin in a huge home win.  As I have mentioned before as long as Michigan stays undefeated Peppers will get Heisman talk.

Dropped out: Myles Garrett, DL, Texas A&M; Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

ESPN 30 for 30: Catholics vs Convicts - Trailer Released

ESPN 30 for 30: Catholics vs Convicts - Trailer Released

Oh man if this little tease of ESPN's 30 for 30: Catholics vs Convicts doesn't get the hair standing up on the back of your neck then you are not a die hard college football fan.  And you should probably leave because you won't get it.

"Catholics vs Convicts" were some of the all-time great battles between two programs who genuinely hated each other: Notre Dame and Miami.  It's been almost 30 years since these two programs faced off in two epic clashes in South Bend in 1988 and 1990 (Notre Dame wins) and will be revived this year at Notre Dame Stadium.

Unfortunately only one program is living up to their this season as Notre Dame has struggled to a 2-3 record after starting the season 10th ranked preseason.  Meanwhile Miami, under first-year coach Mark Richt, is off to a 4-0 start and a #10 ranking.

But throw out the records because we all know this will be a spirited, hard fought gridiron battle on October 29th.  Two of the nation's best college QBs and future 1st round picks Deshone Kizer and Brad Kaaya will face off in what should be a high scoring battle which could very well end with whomever has the last possession.

Of course we have the new "Catholics vs Convicts" t-shirts for sale!  Get your official Catholics vs Convicts shirt here!

Watch this Georgia Fan go from nervous to ecstatic only to fall into football comatose while breaking his TV

Just a full range of emotions that only college football can pull out of one's soul.  To see this die-hard Georgia fan break his flat screen out of excitement because Jacob Eason "Christ" threw the best pass of his life for what was a then winning touchdown only to go silent after the Dawgs couldn't prevent Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs Hail Mary pass from landing into a creamsicle jersey at the end.  Heartbreak city.  Population: Dawgs fans.

Don't cry Dawgs fans.  At least the Atlanta Falcons beat Cam Newton and the Panthers.  So you got that going for you.

HT: For The Win

Mark Richt Trolls UGA With a Classic Hail Mary Tweet

Hands down the most savage tweet this college football season.  Miami Hurricanes new coach and ex-UGA head coach Mark Richt seemed to take Georgia's last second loss to rival Tennessee in stride by firing off a Hail Mary tweet.  Saint Richt is a holy man, a man of God as they say down in the South, so I'm sure he wishes only the best things for the University of Georgia program.  A program who fired him.  Fired him for only winning 10 games a season.  
Let's look up and see how Richt is doing in Miami.  Goes to google and oh wow.  The Hurricanes are undefeated and now ranked in the top 10 in the nation.  Good move Dawgs.  Good move.

Tim Tebow Hits Home Run in First Pro At-Bat

I was one of the first of many to doubt Tim Tebow and this whole pursuit of a baseball career.  But in his first at-bat and even the first pitch he saw Tebow took a fastball and knocked it over the left centerfield fence.  I don't care who you or what competition you are facing that's impressive.  Maybe Tebow does have a chance to make the Mets in the future and not just keep himself in the reality spotlight.

Heisman Watch: Week 4

Lamar Action Jackson Shirt


Not much has changed 4 weeks into the season with our top 5 including the leader at the top of the watch list.

1) Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville - A week after the statement game vs FSU saw Action Jackson again put up insane numbers vs the Thundering Herd of Marshall.  7 total touchdowns (5 passing, 2 running)  pushed his total season to 25 which is more than every team in college football except one.  He gets another chance to widen his Heisman lead this week in Death Valley with College Game Day there.


2) Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford - Not a great game for McCaffrey vs UCLA in primetime after being hyped up all week by ESPN on all platforms.  He didn't score a TD for the first time this season but still managed to rush for 138 yards in a huge come-from-behind victory vs UCLA.  McCaffrey will get a chance to prove himself yet again in a primetime matchup vs Washington, a top 10 oppenent, on Friday Night.

3) Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State - Bye week for the nation's leading rusher.

4) J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State - Bye week for the Buckeyes as they prepare themselves for Rutgers.

5) Greg Ward, QB, Houston - Completed 20 of 26 passes for 289 yards and added another 39 yards on the ground plus another TD in a 64-3 win vs Texas State.  Ward only played 3 quarters and is still nursing a bum throwing shoulder.

6) Jake Browning, QB, Washington - Welcome to the watch list Mr. Browning!  Browning led the undefeated Huskies to a thrilling overtime win vs Arizona with this incredible block of all plays...

This season Browning is completing over 70% of his passes with 14 TDs and only two turnovers.  He leads all PAC 12 QBs in passing efficiency and will get to throw his hat into the top 5 Heisman watch list with a big game Friday night vs undefeated Stanford.

7) Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech - Bye week for the Texas Tech gunslinger.

8) Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson - Reluctantly I'm putting in Watson in the top 10 list even though he hasn't earned it this season.  Watson is by far having his worst collegiate season and if you look at his progression his numbers have gotten gradually worse from his dynamite freshman and sophomore seasons.  But he's still the QB of the undefeated Clemson Tigers and led them to an impressive road win vs Georgia Tech.  This week he gets a chance to shine as Louisville and Lamar Jackson come to town looking to knock them off for the ACC conference and Heisman watch list lead.

9) Myles Garrett, DL, Texas A&M - Didn't get a sack but he had a key fumble recovery and a huge tackle for loss in a statement win vs Arkansas for the undefeated Aggies.  He leads the Aggies in tackles for loss and sacks.

10) Jabrill Peppers, LB, Michigan - As long as Michigan stays undefeated and Peppers is returning punts he will stay in the top 10 list.  He wasn't outstanding defensively by any means vs Penn State but he was 5 yards away from a punt return for a TD because he tripped over his own feet.  This week he will get to move up the list with a big game vs undefeated and top 10 team Wisconsin visiting the Big House.

Dropped out: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU; Deshone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame
