    Anyone other than Burrow will be an asterisk.

    The winner will come from one of the Top 4 guys on this current list, and will likely be decided in the Bama/LSU game on 11/9.

    The heisman has obviously become a QB award and I myself fall victim to overlooking non QBs when it comes to this award. But Jonathan Taylor should get more love than he’s getting. Personally I’d go:
    1) Burrow
    2) Taylor
    3) Hurts

    Taylor doesn’t have the numbers, especially for a non-QB.

    What do you mean he doesn’t have the numbers?

    He's tied for third in yardage so far this season, and the kid from Oklahoma State has more TD's. For a non-QB to win or even get significant hype, they're going to have to have gaudy numbers. He doesn't.

    I believe the more important factor is for Wisconsin to be atop of the standings and not pull a Wisconsin. I never know what to make of numbers now since everybody puts up stupid stats in college.

    He’s also played 1 less game than the 2 guys ahead of him.

    Good point.

    He still doesn't have gaudy numbers like he'd need to get more consideration. Certainly not enough to be ahead of any of the Top 4 on this current list.

    Look, I feel stupid. Can someone once and for all explain odds to me?

    2/3=.667
    3/1=3.0

    But somehow 2/3 is better than 3/1?

    I’m not a numbers guy, admittedly. I hope someone understands my confusion.
