    Interesting read - collegefootballnews.com

    In the lul of not having anything to write about, CFN is counting down the top 100 Heisman Cantidates for next year.
    Stevie Hicks rolls in at 89, saying that he is great if healthy.
    But I thought they had an encouraging take on Meyer. Was kinda suprised to see him this low in the list though.

    45. QB Bret Meyer, Iowa State – Now that Vince Young and Brad Smith are in the NFL, Meyer is suddenly the most polished quarterback in the Big 12. He came a long way as a passer in 2005, throwing for 19 touchdowns and nearly 3,000 yards, and is on the cusp of becoming one of college football’s best all-around signal-callers.

    Blythe isn't on the list, But they have only gone up to 40, so maybe he is higher on the list than Meyer. It would suprise me though. Not saying that he isn't better than Meyer, rather that it is less likely for a WR to win the Heisman.

    I wouldn't doubt that he is in their top 40, they have been high on him since his freshman year.

    I think we will be darn good IF the defense is respectable, and IF the o-line improves from last year.

    Stevie Hicks should not have his name on the same page as the word Heisman... Blythe however could get on a roll and dominate the big 12 at his position.. No body on ISU right now has Heisman ability accept Blythe and he would never win it. .

    i'm pretty sure someone from ISU could have back to back 2000 yard rushing seasons and not win the heisman....oh wait, didn't that already happen?

    Do tell me mate,

    is there any mention of Drew Tate being the ray of sunshine from our lord Jesus? rather a let-down that Drew was not able to bring about world peace and capture the Heisman prior to getting his walnuts rattled by Paris....but I believe the next coming of Favre still has the ability to at least cure a few lepers....or at least help solve the parking issue at Kinnick?

    19. QB Drew Tate, Iowa – Tate has been a very good quarterback the last two years for the Hawkeyes, but in order to be in the long haul hunt, he’ll need to be a little more prolific statistically while leading Iowa to a fifth straight January bowl game. He can also use a few reliable hands now that Clinton Solomon and Ed Hinkel have graduated.

    Yes, and that baffles me to this day.

    Why is Tater Tott so darn high on the list? I really don&#39;t remember a single play that has impressed me except for the desperation pass in the bowl game last year. He is just an average QB and nothing more. Had he stayed in the game vs ISU last year they would have lost by even more.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    They have been high on tate since his first year starting because he carried iowa when they had no running game and when he threw the pass to win the capital one bowl. He really hasn&#39;t done anything besides that and whenever he&#39;s under pressure he usually throws the ball away or gets sacked and then gets mad and spikes the ball and acts like a child.

    Meyer doesn&#39;t run anymore, so he can&#39;t win it. People are now in love with dual-threats. He&#39;s not one anymore.

    Since when are Leinart, White, and Palmer considered dual-threats???

    Also, Meyer can run, he just gets coached to wait for something to develop downfield. However he usually waits a little too long and gets sacked. Hopefully he can develop better timing and can get out of the pocket sooner. And hopefully he gets a better o-line so he won&#39;t have to take off due to pressure.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    so Meyer gets beat out by #37...4 diff RBs for USC...all backups.

    seriously, i know they are on a different level as a team, but the best QB in the Big XII should be ranked ahead of the backup RBs of USC.


    Sure, luck means a lot in football. Not having a good quarterback is bad luck

    Our record that year explains perfectly why he didn&#39;t get it.
