It was the weekend to abuse bad defenses. Colt McCoy turned the quarterback draw into Texas’ biggest weapon. Toby Gerhart used his arm to help beat Notre Dame. That left Tim Tebow and his five touchdowns lagging behind in third place

1. Colt McCoy, Texas: Moves up to No. 1 because without him Texas would have lost to Texas A&M. Four touchdowns passing, one rushing and almost 500 yards in total offense. Texas stared into the abyss. Colt pulled it back.

2. Toby Gerhart, Stanford: The kid taking 21 units this semester – 21! – got some national TV love against Notre Dame. Charlie’s angels – they certainly weren’t demons – allowed Gerhart 205 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also threw for a score.

3. Tim Tebow, Florida: It’s a fairly tight race when Superman throws for three and runs for two and ends up only third. Were those camera phones going off in the end zone during his final series at home? Yes, they were.

4. Kellen Moore, Boise State: The poor guy has been forgotten all year. All five of his touchdowns were needed in an 11-point victory against Nevada. The best thing: Boise is all but in the BCS.

5. Danario Alexander, Missouri: Slowly and quietly, Alexander has become the best receiver in the country. So slow that he isn't a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award. Against Kansas he caught 15 balls for 233 yards. That was the third time in four games Alexander has surpassed 200 yards. Prior to that, Missouri had three 200-yard games by a receiver in its history.

I have to go with Toby Gerhart. I've watched the kid play at least 6 times this year and he always looked like a man amongst boys. His game against USC was my favorite. USC knew what was coming and they still could not stop him. Power right, power right, power right TD!

The heisman has also become a what have you done for me lately award.  What a load of crap.  If Ingram or Tebow gets it, its because of the team they are on.  Toby Gerhart is clearly the best choice for heisman winner, followed by Colt McCoy.  Now McCoy has one more game to impress the voters, but watching last night, and hearing what Musberger and Herbstreit were saying about Gerhart, I am almost positive that game cemented his votes.I guess Beano Cook was right, there are only two ways to win the Heisman: 1) play for Notre Dame or 2) beat Notre Dame.  In that case Gerhart is the consensus choice.

What I really want to know is why Brent Musberger still has a job?  CBS got rid of him years ago.  Doesn't say much for the level of talent at ABC.  He is the ultimate Texas/McCoy hater.  What happened Brent - couldn't score in Austin.  Yea, I thought so.

The best player in college football has to be Gerhart.  He and Keenum are the only players worthy 
who don't host a national audience consistently either.  I hate Tebow as much as the rest of the non Florida Gators or non sports journalists and I might stop watching college football forever if he wins heisman, BUT he has done alot for the sport for the last 4 years and deserves some praise.  He is also a good role model to look up to for kids as compared to his eye gauging teammate or the liquor store robbing former Tennessee Vols.  He may deserve some sort of a career achievement award but to give him the heisman this year would be a crime.

Chad4Bama - I don't think it is fair that Ingram is getting drubbed after having a down week this year, but don't hate on Gerhart.  He is the reason Stanford has 8 wins.  The 4 losses are due to - Gerhart only getting 17 rushes versus Wake Forest, and he had a huge TD run called back on a phantom holding call.  A drop by the WR versus Arizona prevented Stanford from beating Arizona.  And on the first play from scrimmage the Stanford WR dropped a TD pass, and J. Rodgers x 2 couldn't be stopped by the Stanford defense - I'm pretty sure Toby doesn't play defense.  And against Cal he had 4 TD's one of which was 61 yards - what more could he do?  Let's look at USC 170 yds and 3 TD, Oregon 200+ yds and 3 TD, and ND 200+ yds and 3 td rushing and 1 td passing.  Hard to go against a guy who has 13 rushing TD's in the last 4 weeks against USC, Oregon, Cal, and ND.  If Stanford had a decent defense they probably would be undefeated like Alabama.

Take Gerhart off of Stanford and Stanford may have 2 wins.  The kid has 26 TD's - yes 26!  Some from 1 yard, and some from 60 yards.  He can score with speed, vision and power.  Andrew Luck is a freshman QB - and early in the year was not very good, and has improved as the year has gone on - thanks to Gerhart and the OL's play.  I think Florida and Texas are still pretty good without Tebow and McCoy as those schools recruit top QB's every year. Also I think Ingram needs more pub now.  Sure he had a down game this week, however his team is undefeated and Ingram is the engine to that offense much like Gerhart is.

I'm not a Gator fan, but Tebow is the best player in college football.  And I agree with Tony Dungy that Tebow will succeed in the NFL, just as Vince Young is succeeding.  Tebow's faith doesn't hurt it a thing.  It sure beats stealing hubcaps.

Tate is pretty good, Alexander is just as good if not better....Tate has 2 more TD's but Alexander has 14 more catches and 148 more yards...Tate is better in Yds/Catch but Alexander has more Yds/Game....Its a toss up really both are good players.

Does it ever get old being so anti-Bama Dodd?  Seriously, what Bama player stole your girlfriend back in the day?  From the looks of you, she couldn't have been too hot to begin with.

Ingram averages nearly 1 yard more per carry than Gerhart...nevermind the fact Stanford has THREE losses I believe.  Gerhart apparently couldn't lead his team to a win over freakin' Wake Forest...meanwhile, Ingram single handidly put Bama on his back and beat South Carolina...the team that just smacked Clemson around.

You can say Ingram shouldn't win it, but to not have him in your top 5 just shows your idiotic bias.

Personally, if he goes for 150 yards and Bama beats UF in the most watched game of the season...yeah, he'd deserve it.
