What I Saw In College Football

Not Heisman material in 2010
I saw that despite their win over UMass, Michigan is not ready for primetime. This team has a long way to go before being "back".

Other not ready for primetime candidates: Washington, Notre Dame, and Houston

Jake Locker and Case Keenum knocked themselves out of the Heisman race. Locker had a dismal performance while getting beatdown by Nebraska. Keenum and the Cougars flopped big time against a mediocre UCLA team. He also got hurt in the process.

Other self inflicting wounds: Jerrod Johnson,Texas A&M

Nebraska is looking strong going into Big 12 play. They may make their swan song in this conference one to remember. Both Texas and Oklahoma are looking a little shaky to me.

Florida,Texas,and Oklahoma are looking a bit overrated. Texas has a strong defense but is not looking that great on offense. For all the talent the Sooners have on both sides of the ball, they have trouble putting lesser teams away (Air Force and Utah State). Florida is looking like they miss Tim Tebow an awful lot right now.

Butch Jones, Turner Gill, and Mark Richt might want to go into hiding right now. I know it's early but Jones looks like he doesn't have a clue about what's going on in Cincinnati. Ditto for Turner Gill. He does have the win over Georgia Tech, but how long will that hold water. The devil may come to Georgia because Richt's seat is getting hotter in Athens.

Colin Kaepernick should get some votes for Heisman. Kaepernick has been the most underrated dual threat quarterback in the nation for the past three years. Its about time someone outside of Nevada recognizes that.

Get well to Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio. Dantonio suffered a heart attack after a big win over Notre Dame. He also made the gutsiest call of the year. A fake field goal to win the game in overtime. Get well soon Mark. Good thing they have Northern Colorado next week.
