Latest Scripps Howard News Service Heisman poll

It's way too early to be doing this. Teams are just starting to get into conference play, and that's when the real front runners will show up. Hell, 'Bama just got Ingram back, and while it may be difficult to repeat with sharing carries with Richardson, and Bama starting to get their passing attack together - it is still very possible after watching what he did Saturday - even against Duke. 100 yards in just three carries. Impressive. I think its funny how all 5 front runners are currently quarterbacks, too. I don't think 3 of those guys will even be there at season's end.

Latest Scripps Howard News Service Heisman poll

It is way to early to say who the heisman should go to.  Most teams are playing cream puffs and stats can be blown out of proportion or a player is only playing 2 or 3 quarters.  I just hop the Heisman does not go to the best player on the #1 or #2 team because it should go to the best player in the league.  If  today was the season, then I would say Robinson would get it.  But I can almost assure everyone, when he gets in the BIG10 schedule, his numbers will not look like they do now, thus does having 4 to 6 good games make you a Heisman.  
My two picks would be Mallard or Luck if they continue to play like they have.  Pryor is an unique athlete, but will not be a stat monster.  Invitation maybe.  Moore will produce like it nobody's business.  But too much season left to start announcing front runners.
