There's nothing like waking up on a crisp Saturday morning to the sound of your school's marching band blasting the fight song while high-stepping across quad. Sadly, college is but a memory for us here at Sports Pros(e). But that doesn't mean we aren't still crazy about our alma maters. Especially since we each have viable Heisman candidates racking up gaudy numbers.
Kevin's Missouri Tigers are 4-0 after feasting on non-conference opponents. Quarterback Chase Daniel completed 20 consecutive passes against Buffalo while racking up 439 yards passing. He also has two first names, and as some people say, an impeccable sense of fashion.
Meanwhile, Javon Ringer is gaining rushing yards at an alarming rate up in East Lansing, Mich. The Michigan State running back is second in the nation with 699 yards on the ground and first with 11 touchdowns. Eleven! Because homer-ism in this town is a one-horse race, I didn't want to be the first to say "Ringer" and "Heisman" in the same breath.
Thankfully, someone else did.
