Omar Jacobs in 2005

So argues Matt Riddle in this BG News column.

Sadly, Omar Jacobs has about as much chance of winning the Heisman as we do of getting a ticker tape parade in downtown Norman.

It is a funny column, though. Riddle says that Jacobs is a front runner for 2005 along with Adrian Peterson (yes), Reggie Bush (yes) and Marcus Vick (uh, no).

He also says that Peterson is “the most explosive running back since Maurice Clarett.” Did this kid start watching football in 2002?
