Good News and Bad News for Archie Griffin fans

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by methomps, Dec 8, 2004.

    methomps an imbecility, a stupidity without name

    Good News: It is unlikely that Jason White will win the Heisman

    Bad News: Adrian Peterson may very well win it this year, and he has a strong chance of winning it in either (or both) of the next two years before bolting for the League

    Heisman Projection

    Projection (with about half of the # of ballots the website wants to make an accurate projection):

    Leinart 24.2%
    Peterson 23.0%
    White 16.7%
    Bush 15.3%
    Smith 11.9%

    Bonus Bad News: If they give Jason White another 3 or 4 years, who knows how many Heismans he could win...

    I never knew that the press voted for the heisman... I thought only past trophy winners voted. Huh.. guess you do learn something new everyday.

    I thought almost everyone in America voted for the Heisman, I am surprised you don't have a vote ScarletInMyVeins.....

    Seriously, it seems like there are about 500 or more people that vote for the Heisman.

    White lost it for this year with his last two games last year IMO. As for Peterson, even if he wins, he won't win another because OU will lose White and something like 130 OL starts next year. Expectations will be sky high and it will be much harder for him to reach them. To me Bush is the guy, who if he won this year, could repeat, though TG2 may have something to say about that, expecially if he plays both ways.

    hmmm perhaps this will work out well.. could turn ginn into a bit of a media darling with the story line "Ohio State super sophmore protects the original super sophs NCAA record by winning his own heisman"

    I actually think Archie's pretty safe from all sides. The potential of Ginn is incredible, of course. But, so what if someone does win twice? It doesn't take anything away from the magic of Archie Griffin, original rocket on rollerskates and all-time good guy in my books!

    thats why we have started www.ginn4heisman.com (not up yet, just bought it today)

    On that website we should include as many highlights as possible of Ginn returning punts for TD, of unbelievable seperation on 55-yard TD catches from the slot, and if he plays any D, highlights of him laying the wood and returning INTs for TDs

    How long has Jason White been at OU, anyway? Isn't the guy 30 now?

    Not sure about his age but it did note that he applied for his golden buckeye card and was expecting to go on med Sup sometime this month.
