Two Heisman contenders on the Utes? How many Heisman contenders on BYU's squad?

Highland, UT

There are no Heisman contenders on the utes.

"There are no Heisman contenders on the utes" ducky

Typically you point to Athlon when the Utes are ranked low but now that the publication gives a couple of Utes some credit...you trash it.

But Hedgehog, don't you know that Duckhunter is "the balance"???? LOL
Yeah right.

Jenny: There are 85 scholarship players so there are 85 Heisman contenders on The bYu roster.

Look forward to seeing Brian in his first year.
The man has a history of doing well at everything he's done, this should be no different.

Trolls are best left ignored. it's the little boy in him still acting out for attention, even if it's negative.

I don't point to any publication about anything because I don't read them unless there is a link from the newspaper here.

I'm just going off of the fact that there aren't any "Heisman contenders" on utah's roster. For one thing to win a heisman your team actually has to be good, utah isn't, they are pretty average. For another heisman campiagns start at least the previous year and as of now there are no heisman campiagns for any one on the ute's. Then there is the fact that no one on utah's roster is good enough to win a heisman trophy.

But hey, if you guys believe it will happen.....

utah "fan" delusion at its best.


Highland, UT

Oh and let me go waaaaaay out on a limb here and make this extremely bold statement.

No one from the university of utah's football team will win the Heisman trophy this year.

Mark it down!

I guess losing to your rival by 44 points last year and 7 of the last 10 years really takes a toll on a person (Duckhunter) and an unhealthy hate starts to grow inside of that person. I'd be willing to bet Duckhunter thinks about how much he hates the Utes almost every hour of every day.

Ducky, do you have your tickets to Tulsa booked for the week when Utah once again beats your team. You know, when you suddenly start "Living on Tulsa Time" and nothing is heard from you; I look forward to it.

Duckhunter is simply stating the obvious - the Utes don't have a team that's good enough to propel any of their players into serious contention for the Heisman. Sure, there might be a couple of players mentioned in the very long pre-season list of "possible" contenders, but none of them will end up on the list of 10 or 12 players who will be tracked throughout the season as legitimate contenders.

Springville, UT

4-5 conference records are hardly launching pads for a Heisman.

There is not one player on utah's roster that even vaguely compares to Robert Griffin III.


I never said there was, sir, just counterpointing another arrogant disparaging remark. However, after 2010, anyone could have made the statement that there was not anyone on Baylor's 7-6 team that compared with Mark Ingram. I'm not saying he has a good chance at all, but John White has already received a lot of notoriety in the West as a darkhorse candidate, and if he improves on last year's numbers, I wouldn't be surprised to see his popularity grow eastward.
