Heisman Trophy Odds

[HT: Orlando Sentinel]

Finally some college football news that doesn't involve conference swapping. The Heisman Trophy odds are out for 2010 thanks to the Las Vegas odds makers. Here are the numbers for those who wager.

Player Position School Line
Mark Ingram Running back Alabama +380
Terrelle Pryor Quarterback Ohio State +550
Jake Locker Quarterback Washington +800
Ryan Mallett Quarterback Arkansas +1200
Noel Devine Running back West Virginia +1400
Jacory Harris Quarterback Miami +1400
Dion Lewis Running back Pittsburgh +1500
Case Keenum Quarterback Houston +1500
John Clay Running back Wisconsin +1500
Evan Royster Running back Penn State +1500
Kellen Moore Quarterback Boise State +1700
Landry Jones Quarterback Oklahoma +1800
Andrew Luck Quarterback Stanford +1800
DeMarco Murray Running back Oklahoma +1800
Christian Ponder Quarterback Florida State +1800
Damien Berry Running back Miami +2200
Matt Barkley Quarterback USC +2200
Jacquizz Rodgers Running back Oregon State +2500
Garrett Gilbert Quarterback Texas +3000
LaMichael James Running back Oregon +3300
Tate Forcier Quarterback Michigan +3500
Josh Nesbitt Quarterback Georgia Tech +6000
Jerrod Johnson Quarterback Texas A&M +6000
Blaine Gabbert Quarterback Missouri +6600
Jordan Todman Running back Connecticut +6600
Robert Griffin Quarterback Baylor +6600

I can't argue with the top four. Mark Ingram should be the favorite and is a safe bet. So is Jack Locker. I would put my money on Florida State's Christian Ponder. If Ponder has the type of year he had in 2009 without a season ending injury and the Seminoles are back in the national spotlight the FSU quarterback might get an invite to New York City in December. Ponder has some impressing to do first.

Shocker its all quarterback and running backs too. Yes I'm being facetious.

trophies and awards said...

The Heisman Memorial Trophy Award (usually known colloquially as the Heisman Trophy or the Heisman), named after the former Brown University and University of Pennsylvania college football player and Auburn University coach John Heisman, is awarded annually to the player deemed the most outstanding player in collegiate football. The award, a cast bronze statue that is 13.5 inches (34.3 cm) tall and 25 pounds (11.3 kg), is presented by the Heisman Trophy Trust in early December before the postseason bowl games.
