John O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, "Here's to spending the rest of me
life, between the legs of me wife!"

That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night!

He went home and told his wife, Mary, "I won the prize for the Best toast
of the night"

She said, "Aye, did ye now. And what was your toast?"

John said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church
beside me wife."

"Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!" Mary said.

The next day, Mary ran into one of John's drinking buddies on the street
corner. The man chuckled leeringly and said, "John won the prize the other
night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary."

She said, "Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know,
he's only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep, and the
other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come."

We are a third of the way into the season and we are starting to get a better understanding of who exactly are the best players in college football this year. Luckily I've gotten a chance to watch all these players play at least two games and so here are my top 5 as of now.

1. Tim Tebow-For those people in the Southeast who were hoping the Gators would take a step back with a new QB and a revamped D, well, you are in for a rude awakening. Tebow has been doing it all and is already the clear leader in just his sophomore season. I know a lot of people will discredit his chances for winning the Heisman because he is a sophomore(no freshman or sophomore has ever won)but the times are changing.

2. Darren McFadden-If you watched his performance against Alabama it probably just reaffirmed his elite status as a running back. To me the loss means little to his Heisman case because he was so good, but I can see the morons out there scratching out his name because of the loss. Those people would be called idiots/writers who shouldn't have a vote in the first place. Look for him to step up his game even further this Saturday against Kentucky and their Heisman candidate Andre' Woodson.

3. Sam Bradford-A red shirt freshman who won the starting QB job for the Sooners just a few weeks before the season started, Bradford has been spectacular so far. He is completing 80% of is passes with a TD-to-Int ratio of 11-to-1. His first big test will be against the Longhorns on October 6th. If he plays big in that game he could become the front runner if the LSU defense shuts down Tebow.

4. Colt Brennan-This guy is a fucking machine. He has a hairdo that scares the shit out of me, I know it must keep opposing defensive coordinators up late at night. All of his stats are out of this world and if he keeps it up you can pretty much guarantee an invite to New York City.

5. Andre' Woodson-
Don't laugh people, this kid could be the first pick in next year's NFL Draft. Woodson looked awesome against Louisville in leading a huge win for the Wildcats over their in-state rival. He has yet to throw an interception and is completing nearly 70% of his passes. More importantly he is providing great leadership to a team that might not have the most talent in the SEC but will provide a good test every week. This week's battle with Arkansas could be a huge boost for his candidacy.

Desean Jackson-His injury is limiting his potential. When healthy he is the best player in my opinion.

Pat White-Didn't have a great game against Maryland but is still the Mountaineers best player.

Matt Ryan-A great talent who is moving up quickly after destroying a good Georgia Tech defense.

Ray Rice-A consistent runner, he is going to need big games against Louisville and West Virginia to have any chance because of Rutgers weak early season schedule.

Brian Brohm-Played really well against Kentucky, problem is Andre' Woodson outplayed him.
