Mike Woods of MSNBC put out one of the best Heisman watches last season. He kicks off this year with Matt Leinart at the top of his group of contenders.
Only injury, or a lights-out year by teammate Reggie Bush, will prevent him from his appointed date with history. Or destiny, if you prefer.
As usual, Woods frames the debate properly. We don’t think that Leinart is going to win because of Heismandment No. 9, but we do acknowledge that this particular rule could fall by the wayside if History (with a capital ‘H’) is the order of the day.
