Heisman Watch

Yahoo Sports' Terry Bowden (Yes, son of FSU head coach Bobby and brother of Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden) wrote this brief, yet interesting piece on Heisman favorites, which even includes Tech's very own, Marcus Vick.

As Terry writes, the obvious favorites to win the trophy have to be between UT's Vince Young and USC's dynamic duo of Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush. I'd say the race is too close to differentiate amongst the three of them, yet, in my mind if Notre Dame were to upset USC tomorrow, my pick to win the race would be leaning in Young's favor.

Looking at Vick though, I don't give Marcus that great of a shot to hoist the Heisman come end of the season, despite being practically flawless this year. He needs another year to grow and establish himself, and perhaps after another successful season, the concept of Vick in the frontrunning for next year's Hesiman race will be no surprise.
