Heisman Hopefuls: Week 3

Week 3 has come and gone and most of my Heisman Hopefuls (same list since March) have at least 2 games under their belt so it is time to start eliminating names off of the list of Bronze Stiff Arm Candidates. As always you can refer to the Bronze Stiff Arm Link at the bottom of the article for the past few lists.

Todd Boeckman, QB - Ohio State
14/27 - 87 yds - 2 TDs/0 INTs - 81.22 QB Rating
Through 3 Games:
44/66 - 381 yds - 2 TDs/2 INTs - 119.1 QB Rating
With the loss against USC on Saturday Todd Boeckman looked a lot more like the Boeckman we saw against Ohio which started to worry Buckeye Faithful. There are clamors for Freshman Phenom Terrelle Pryor to step in, can't remember the last time a Heisman Candidate was being pressured by a True Freshman backup.

Sam Bradford, QB - Oklahoma
18/28 - 304 yds - 5 TDs/0 INTs - 285.88 QB Rating - 1 Rush - 1 yd - 1 TD

Jimmy Clausen, QB - Notre Dame
10/21 - 147 yds - 2 TDs/2 INTs - 118.8 QB Rating
Through 2 Games:
31/55 - 384 yds - 5 TDs/4 INTs - 130.47 QB Rating
Despite the win over Michigan Jimmy is out of the running. Though 2-0 with a weak schedule, Notre Dame will not be in the National Spotlight, beyond their typical overexposure, and his numbers aren't enough to garner National Award Recognition.

Michael Crabtree, WR - Texas Tech
8 Receptions - 164 yds - 3 TDs

Chase Daniel, QB - Missouri
23/28 - 405 yds - 4 TDs/0 INTs - 250.78 QB Rating - 1 Rush - 12 yds - 0 TDs

Kellen Lewis, QB - Indiana
-OFF-

Jeremy Maclin, WR - Missouri
6 Receptions - 172 yds - 3 TDs - 4 PR - 23 yds - 2 KR - 39 yds

Joe McKnight, RB - Southern California

Mark Sanchez, QB - Southern California
17/28 - 172 yds - 4 TDs/1 INT - 152.31 QB Rating

Matthew Stafford, QB - Georgia

-OFF-

Isiah "Juice" Williams, QB - Illinois
13/25 - 147 yds - 1 TD/1 INT - 106.59 QB Rating - 11 Rushes - 35 yds

If I were to give the Award today, based on 3 weeks, my recipients would be:

Week 3 Winner:
Sam Bradford, QB - Oklahoma
18/28 - 304 yds - 5 TDs/0 INTs - 285.88 QB Rating - 1 Rush - 1 yd - 1 TD

Winner after 3 weeks:
Sam Bradford, QB - Oklahoma
64/81 - 882 yds - 12 TDs/2 INTs - 214.43 QB Rating - 4 Rushes - 4 yds - 1 TD

As I mentioned before I am sticking with my original list of names so Jahvid Best, Javon Ringer, Max Hall, and the others who deserve to be on this list aren't. Look for 4 Real's Heisman Busters column where those fellas will be mentioned in detail.

You're jealousy of the Irish is showing more and more.

Wait, what's that? All that smack talk before the season about how bad the Irish are and will be, where is it?

Too bad about the Mildcats' loss at New Mexico. Those Lobos are one tough cookie!

I can't pass up the opportunity to hate on ND fan.

Michigan State has a really strong defense, about as strong as CWeiss's ACL. Get that guy back in an office and let him keep drawing schemes and stop talking to players.

Honestly dude...you have got to be on something. Yes we lost to New Mexico, yet we are not screaming about national respect or on TV every week. I am unsure why you decided to post this spastic comment on an article about Heisman hopefuls.

Is it because little Jimmy Clausen got crossed off Mr. Dom's big mean list :(

If were are going to compare our teams objectively so you can finally sit quietly in your spoiled little corner let's be fair about it...

I will now sit down and write an article just for you comparing our "mild cats" to your big tough Irish.

Stay tuned
