Peterson vs. Bush, ’05

Michael Ventre, also of MSNBC, here previews what should be a monster 2005 Heisman race: Adrian Peterson vs. Reggie Bush.

There’s no doubt that these two are–by far–the two front runners for the 2005 trophy. They’ve both got some unique attributes that they bring to the race–and very few weaknesses.

Some of the issues that will come to the forefront next year:

–Will Bush being a junior trump Peterson’s sophomore status? Or will that advantage get cancelled out by the fact that Peterson is a true running back while Bush is an all-purpose guy?

–How will the record and ranking of the two teams affect the Heisman race?

–At least one, and most likely both, won’t be paired with their current quarterback. How will that affect their numbers?

–Which one will get the most preseason hype?

–Can they stay injury free?

Should be an amazing race.
