Mr. Quinn tops the pre-season Heisman watch t his year. Not a big surprise given the strong break-out year he had last year at ND. Is there a team that gets more favorable media coverage? Some publications compare Quinn to Jesus. Pretty amazing that over the past 19 seasons only 1 Heisman winner has been the #1 pick in the NFL draft. This topic really pains me (east-coast bias?) because YALE (2) has more Heisman trophy winners than ILLINOIS. Come on, are you kidding me? Notre Dame and USC lead the list with a total of 7. Sure, no bias there.
Fox runs through their list. Seems like a wide-open race this year now that Bush, Leinart, and Young are making millions in the NFL: http://msn.foxsports.com/cfb/story/5746512/
Here is what CBS has to say. http://www.sportsline.com/collegefootball/heisman
