ESPN’s Preseason Heisman Watch…

has been released.  I think it serves to counteract many of the charges that ESPN is trying to hand Tim Tebow the Heisman.

Sure, Tebow leads the poll with 71 points, but Colt McCoy is not far behind with 61 points.

I think it also confirms my continuing theory that Jahvid Best (4th) is, at this point, the top darkhorse contender and the running back with the best shot of breaking through the quarterback logjam.  It also shows that Sam Bradford, while respected, is seen as being well behind Tebow and McCoy in this go-around.

We’ll soon have our preseason Heisman Watch, which is my personal assessment of the race, plus the preseason edition of the Heismanpundit/Orlando Sentinel Heisman Poll, which was the most accurate Heisman poll in the country last year.
