Sorry Trojan fans, but it appears the SI cover jinx has already struck your team. Take a close look at the runningback on the far left.

That would be one Emmanuel Moody. He is no longer a Condom after deciding LA, with all it's Hollywood coke whores, wasn't suited for him and is now looking to transfer. Rumors are TCU, Oklahoma State, and Notre Dame are possible destinations for the highly regarded sophomore halfback.

Anyways, I just wanted to point it out to all the Trojan fans. In other words all ten of you and the millions of bandwagon lovers who latched on once they started winning again.

This list is according to ESPN's Pat Forde. I think Forde is a really good writer and he is one of the select few on ESPN who I actually respect their opinion on college football(Kirk Herbstreit and Bruce Feldman are the others)but I think he needs to work on his list.

Darren McFadden: An obvious selection. Agree.
Desean Jackson: My favorite for the Heisman. Agree.
Steve Slaton: Can't argue with his stats. Partially agree.
Adarius Bowman: I like Bowman, but I think the Big 12 has guys like DeMarco Murray and Jamaal Charles who will be bigger playmakers this season. At the WR position I think Mario Manningham is more of a playmaker on offense than Bowman.
Derrick Williams: way! Derrick Williams is not even close to being one of the top playmakers in college football.

Here would be my top 5:
1. Desean Jackson: Can score anytime he touches the ball.
2. Darren McFadden: Superstar who will shine in the NFL.
3. Pat White: Darkhorse Heisman contender who will have a great season passing and running.
4. James Laurinaitis: The Buckeye LB creates a ton of turnovers.
5. Mario Manningham: Scares the shit out of me everytime he breaks deep.


I just ran into the Heisman Trophy odds over at
They are as follows:
Steve Slaton +500
John David Booty +500
Darren McFadden +600
Brian Brohm +650
Colt Brennan +800
Chad Henne +800
Ray Rice +800
Mike Hart +1000
Tim Tebow +1200
Pat White +1500
CJ Spiller +1500
Colt McCoy +1800
Percy Harvin +2000
Chase Daniel +2000
CJ Gable +2200
Jonathan Stewart +2500
Anthony Morelli +4000
Matthew Stafford +5000

Ummm, okay...where the fuck is Desean Jackson? Seriously, you are going to tell me guys like CJ Gable(who won't even be starting), Anthony Morelli(average QB for all the physical talents), and Matthew Stafford(too young)have a better chance of winning than the most exciting player in college football(apologies to D-Mac fans)?

I get it that the Heisman Trophy has become more of a running joke than George Bush's foreign policy but can we start getting it right? First off, Pat White is more of a Heisman candidate than Steve Slaton. White runs the Mountaineers offense and without him West Virginia is just a huge burning couch with empty bottles of Jack Daniels shoved in between the cushions and not even close to a top 5 team.

And don't even start me with this BS about John David Booty. Listen, I will admit I don't like USC but I had no problem when Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, or Reggie Bush won the Heisman. Why? Because all three players could raise the level of play in their teammates and were arguably the best player on the field at all times (calm down Texas fans, I know Vince Young is god) during their Heisman winning year. But Booty is not. Just like Troy Smith wasn't last year(James Laurinaitis), Booty isn't even the best player on his team.

Booty is just another reincarnation of Gino Torretta, Chris Weinke, and Jason White. I don't care if you are the QB of the #1 team in the country. The fact remains that you aren't the best player on your own team, let alone your conference so why are we even talking about you as a serious Heisman contender?

Oh well, I guess I will just need to keep telling myself it isn't my fault we have morons who try to ruin the beautiful game of college football for all of us...

Head coach Bob Stoops announced today that redshirt freshman Sam Bradford will be the starting quarterback on September 1st against the football juggernaut known as the North Texas Mean Green(wasn't Kathy Ireland a kicker there?).

Bradford, a 6-5 native Oklahoman who was rated the 12th best pro-style QB during his high school senior season according to, beat out junior Joey Halzle and true freshman Keith Nichol.

Oklahoma should have a good offense with star RB Demarco Murray, whom I am predicting will have a huge season even if he is splitting carries with Allen Patrick. The Sooners offensive line should be solid and WR Malcolm Kelly is a big target who should become Bradford's #1 target.

With that being said I still think Texas and Texas A&M will have better seasons because of their respective QB's have game experience. I'm still a little miffed at Oklahoma being touted as a top 10 team. I think they are a top 20 team but I don't think they are better than Cal or the Aggies just to name a few.

I sort of feel bad for this dude but it's just too funny not to post it. I just can't understand how any brunette, blonde, or red head for that matter whether short or tall can resist this casanova...
