HEISMAN TROPHY WATCH

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
"The No. 2 and No. 3 spots on my Heisman Trophy ballot are up for grabs, but Ohio State QB Troy Smith has clinched the No. 1 spot. Hawaii probably never will have a Heisman Trophy-winning QB, but Colt Brennan's 2006 passing line is fun to look at: 303 of 419 (.723) for 4,155 yards, with 48 TD passes, 8 INTs and a best-in-the-nation 189.6 passer rating in 11 games. Ohio State's Smith has a fifth-best 167.9 passer rating."

Even if they're working the event as waiters serving the hors d'oeuvre -- they should be in New York on Dec. 11. "
"I still don't know who will get my Heisman Trophy vote, but I do know with 100 percent certainty who shall not.
