I like Daniels position ready to spring up and catch other players by surprise.

McCarthy averages 227 total ypg
JD5 averages 387 total ypg.
Thats a measly 160 yds per game so as you can clearly see - It a TOSS-UP!!!!

How TF did he go from front runner to outside the top 15?

I know CW had 2 bad games but were they “THAT” bad? Apparently so

So penix accounts for 0 tds and 3 turnovers in a game vs 1 win team. They only won because a defensive TD,AT HOME and he's still in front of JD5?? WOW

Penix has not been good the last 2 games.

Looking at that list I believe the Heisman is Jayden’s to lose at this point.

Neighbors stats are better than MHJr across the board yet he’s nowhere to be seen on this list.

Nothing matters until the Bama game. FourBette was dominating lists like these, until he wasn’t.

EXACTLY!!!!!!!!! Burrow’s coming out party was the Bama game, and his 3rd down RUN to get the first (the one where when he got up he did the first down signal) which set up victory formation was his Heisman moment, even the announcers pointed this out (Vern and Gary). If Jayden has a good game and leaves with a W he will be in the lead. THAT IS A FACT JACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LSU will have to win out for him to have a chance. Or the others will have to break a leg.

Meaningless until at least after the Bama game.
