Thursday, October 19 Lists Quinn at No. 2

Sure, Brady Quinn might not be the Heisman Trophy favorite. Not with Ohio State's Troy Smith dominating the college football world. Still, Quinn hasn't fallen into oblivion. He's had a good year, and people have noticed.

For instance, has Quinn listed at No. 2 among the nation's top quarterbacks, behind Smith. The rest of the top 10 is Tennessee's Erik Ainge, Louisville's Brian Brohm, Pittsburgh's Tyler Palko, West Virginia's Pat White, Cal's Nate Longshore, Michigan's Chad Henne, Florida's Chris Leak and BYU's John Beck.

What does this mean in the big picture? Not much. You are, after all, only as good as your last performance. Quinn has six more games to position himself for a Heisman run and, for the Irish, a national championship. Beyond that, there's the NFL. By then, Quinn might be the first quarterback taken in the draft. And that means a lot.

Good post... but it's just six more games to prove himself for the Heisman, not seven. The trophy is awarded before the bowl game.
