Quinn's Big Day Will Come

So now that the Heisman race is over, Brady Quinn and the rest of the Notre Dame Irish can focus on what REALLY matters -- beating LSU in the Sugar Bowl.

Yes, Quinn will get his big day once the NFL draft rolls around. He has the classic size, arm strength and talent to be a future star, and the fact he's thrived in Charlie Weis' pro-style offense is a big plus.

Quinn is likely to get the edge over Heisman winner Troy Smith when it comes to being drafted -- and landing a huge contract (not that Smith's will be small). Smith lacks the height most NFL teams want, although the same was said about Drew Brees and Michael Vick, and they've done all right.

For now, though, there are finals to finish and a LSU team to prepare for. The Tigers just might have the best overall defense Notre Dame has faced all season. Quinn will have to be at his best if the Irish are to have a chance.
