Vacations are over and the shows are back live. Saquon Barkley is yet to sign with Giants and it has strung on a little longer than people expected.
9:51 Northwestern Toxic Culture
Northwestern fired long time Head Coach Pat Fitzgerald after a report that there was a hazing system within his program. This report came from an individual player despite hundreds of players denouncing this. Fitzgerald will be suing and he will probably be successful as he stated he had no knowledge of the hazing.
21:54 Heisman High Tiers and History
The award was once a running back award, but it has now turned into a quarterback award by far, even though Devonta Smith won it in 2020. Don’t even consider a defensive player.
There is some interesting takes in the high tiers such as Drew Pine and Shadeur Sanders, however in the reality of it all, no one with high odds is going to win simply because they need so much help from their team to be relevant.
One name in the higher area could be Jack Plummer. He plays for Louisville which can have a surprise year in the ACC due to the questionable nature of most of the teams. If he is elite and they string together some wins, you never know.
30:00 Heisman Odds of 150-1, 120-1, and 100-1
Carson Steele, friend of the program, could turn up this year in his new offense despite being a running back. To win it though, he will need to have an absurd amount of touchdowns in the 40 area, so its definitely not something to hang your hat on.
Getting an Alabama QB at 100-1 should be mouthwatering, but there is a large belief they won’t be dominant at all unfortunately. Milroe had some good moments when he stepped in last year though.
42:16 Somewhat Realistic Heisman Odds
Whoever wins the job at Tulane has the team to boost their odds throughout the season, which can get you paid in the secondary market. Cam Rising is at 80-1 and is coming off an injury but if he can figure it out and can overcome the tough Utah schedule he can make something shake.
Brock Bowers was the best tight end in the country last season and should have an insane year this year, but as a tight end he might actually need 25 touchdowns.
51:09 Marvin Harrison Jr.
Marvin Harrison has the lowest odds for a non-quarterback. He is a true talent and is currently considered a generational talent that is in WRU (Ohio State). A couple big games on big stages and he can repeat Devonta Smith’s 2020 Heisman Year.
56:33 Heisman Odds under 18-1
Bo Nix is an attractive name out of Oregon but 18-1 doesn’t seem to make much sense. Drake Maye is already considered a top pick and can easily put up a Heisman campaign if he dominates the ACC, but anything less won’t be enough.
Cade Klubnik at 16-1 seems to be the best value as he has a legit shot behind a big year. The chalk this year such as Caleb Williams at 5-1 is just not enticing at all.
