So much for my post saying LaMichael James is the 2011 front runner. That’ll teach me a lesson about assuming things.
Defying all expectations to the contrary, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is coming back for another year of college football.
This means the Heisman runner up in 2010 is now the clear Heisman front runner in 2011. Not only was he a solid second in the Heisman vote, he also had a fantastic bowl game performance on a national stage and with his return he could conceivably be the top player on the nation’s preseason No. 1 team.
Mark down that Nov. 12 game against Oregon in Stanford Stadium. It should be a doozy between two top five teams and the top two Heisman candidates.
