Meet the Man Who Should Win the Heisman
The 923 Heisman ballots were mailed Wednesday and it's likely that Notre Dame's Brady Quinn, Texas' Vince Young and USC's Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart will get the most attention. But are they missing the best player in the land? From a statistical standpoint, UCLA's Drew Olson stands above them all. His efficiency rating is 172.5, which is better than the past nine quarterbacks who have won the Heisman. He has 30 touchdown passes and only three interceptions. In the past six games, he has 22 touchdown passes and one interception. He has led four fourth-quarter comebacks from deficits between 10 and 21 points. And the Bruins are 9-1. Heisman voters screw it up more times than not, and it appears they are poised to do it again.
