Forget Heisman, Just Beat LSU

Okay, so the entire civilized world knows that Brady Quinn will not win the Heisman. Troy Smith looks like the run-away winner, with projecting Smith to set a record with 95.7 percent of the vote. Quinn projects to finish third behind Arkansas running back Darren McFadden.

Quinn will move on, with the main emphasis on the Sugar Bowl and, after that, the NFL draft.
And it's not like he hasn't been honored this season. He just won the Maxwell Award for college player of the year, beating out Smith along the way. He has a slew of Notre Dame awards. He has the look of a future NFL No. 1 pick, with millions of dollars to follow.

So life is good for him. There's just one thing that will make it better, and it has nothing to do with that famous trophy.

Beat LSU.
