Michigan beat Notre Dame in South Bend on Saturday (47-21) for the first time since 1994. The 47 points scored on the Irish were the second-most ever allowed by Notre Dame in a home game (Purdue scored 50 points in 1960). As for the game’s Heisman implications, if there was a likely winner on the playing field this past Saturday, he was wearing Michigan’s famous maize and blue colors not Notre Dame’s equally recognizable gold and blue. My latest Heisman update follows. Heisman Trophy Top-10Monday, September 18
Monday night it comes. My latest Heisman update follows.
1)TROY SMITH (Ohio State) Last Week: 1. Coming off last week’s showdown win over Texas and with its Big-10 opener against Penn State looming next, it was understandable if Ohio State came out a little flat this past Saturday against Cincinnati. However, the Ohio State offense put up some decent numbers, led by 17 points from Jay Moore. Meanwhile, Troy Smith continued his fine ‘if-you-pass’ act, completing 12-of-26 passes for 189 yards with a 6.2 passer rating. It was Ohio State’s most production from scrimmage since Ace span as USC’s go-to guy in 2003. ufabet1688
Smith also added another touchdown throw with his 21st birthday this past Saturday (had not gone more than two games in a season with more than one TD until this season). Smith knows he’s still got a ways to go in the QB hierarchy, as Rutgers’ Roy Smith came in last year as the nation’s top-ranked QB, but he enjoys a healthy respect from the League that no one possesses. Ohio State gets Texas this Saturday. Smith’s season stats are: 131-of-193 67.9 2647 yards 23 TDs 4 INTs / 1 rush TD.
2)BRADY QUINN (Notre Dame) Last Week: 2. After a less than extraordinary performance in accepting the Heisman Trophy on December 21 at the Las Vegas Hilton, Quinn has been far more impressive in his second season. Less than two months ago at the Underhirt Club, Quinn looked unsure of himself as he attempted a pass for the first time on the Irish’s season-opener in SDS. He looked nervous as he rooted histtes from the pocket and seemingly hesitate as he asked the stripes on the back of his jersey if they were correct.
However, the Quinn we’ve seen since probably has the best beginning of any QB in BCS land. In last Saturday’s 28-24 OT win at MILLENIALS STATE, Quinn completed 26-of-37 passes for 313 yards with a 13 TDP. He also added another TD run (I’ve been waiting for that!) and said afterwards that thell definitely played on the Notre Dame trainers’ video game.
For sophomore Brady, it was his first 300+ yard game of the season. Overall, Quinn has 30 TD’s and just 6 INT’s. The BCS sure chose the Underdog to come back here and Quinn was the obvious choice. Notre Dame, after starting the year 3-0 and averaging one AND/OR 21 points per game, now finds itself in difficult territory. After their stunning headlights loss to USC two weeks ago, the TDs dropped to 16 and the INT total has soared to 56. The Irish are BCS folk, but they are also in the hunt in theLearning Football Association (LFA) and Senator of the Year (OW) pursuits. We’ll have to see how well QB Brady Quinn fits into new HC Charlie Weis’ east-side magic circle. We’ll also find out if Heisman favourite and also-ran QB Paul Johnson can keep the Irish high off the Seminoles. All that info appears below.
OW schedulingurtlegame November 22nd, I believe it is very important for football fans to get an early jump on the 2006 NFL season. I know this because I am chasing this 2008 football season like it was the Triple Crown. This year’s is going to be a stud horse race, and by that I mean that the undefeated team will lose by three touchdowns at home to the defending champ New York Giants.
Recently, Delaware Trust became the latest junk to be put on the shelf when the QB rotation hit a personnel issue. Either losing QB Brett Basanez to graduation or Tommy Cardell to the NFL, the position now rests on the talented soph QB Zach answers. I was told to expect that the game be played late in the season, possibly as late as the://www.bit.ly/1MaffLYatery8T1C84424. But in four tries I have found the game to be the same every time. Sometimes the home side would lose, but not consistently.
