Yeah I agree with Flesh here. If you are the most outstanding player in the country, it shouldn't matter whether you're an underclassman or not. It's not a college career award, it's yearly award, if a freshman or a sophomore is the most outstanding player, so be it.

You're both right about the best player in the country. Robinson may be the best player. Maybe it's James, Newton, Martinez... who knows? Probably it's none of them, like it wasn't Ingram last year.

My hesitation in embracing underclassmen is when they aren't necessarily the best player, but the product of a hype machine. I guess since that's all this award is anymore that's kind of a silly concern, but it's a concern.

We all know the Heisman isn't really "the most outstanding college player in college football" anymore. However, for whatever the award has become, players in every class should be considered and eligible. I guess I don't see how a player who is winning games, and putting up huge numbers is a product of a hype machine. Do you really think Robinson, LaMike, Newton, or Martinez are just a product of the hype machine? Those guys are WAY more than hype.

Those guys aren't the best examples. They're a product of on-field production. I'm thinking of the kind of hype where you hang a gi-normous banner of a player on Times Square. (names have been withheld from this post to protect the innocent)

Pump your breaks, kid, that man's an Oregon national treasure. In 2001 Joey Harrington threw for 2,415 yards and 23 touchdowns, the Ducks lost one regular season game and should have been invited to the NC, finishing the year with a dismantling Colorado (how did the winner of the award that year fare against that same Buffaloes team?). Oregon also finished the season with a final ranking of #2 in the country. He was an All American and was the Pac 10 Offensive Player of the year in 2001. Obviously the billboard in Times Square helped Joey get a little more notoriety, but if you're insinuating that Joey's being invited to the Heisman Ceremony was only a product of the hype machine....well, you is nutz.

In fact, I'd say Crouch was more of a product of the hype machine than Joey, as were the Huskers being invited to the NC game having not even won their own conference championship.

Anyway, Joey was for sure a product of his on field production, just as Crouch, or Dorsey was.

Newton definitely the front runner and Auburn looking like the best team in the SEC (if not the country).
