Checking the online odds for the winner of this season’s Heisman Trophy, I notice that Todd Gurley is the only running back getting better than 10-1 right now. He’s fourth overall, behind Winston, Mariota and Miller.
Now, I’m no fan of the Heisman and I doubt a running back’s chances to win it these days are that good (between the crab legs and his legs, my money’s on Mariota right now), but what I’m curious about is how far Todd Gurley can carry the Dawgs this year. What kind of season will Georgia be having if Gurley remains a serious candidate for the Heisman throughout 2014?
My guess is a pretty damned good one, at least East Division champs and top five nationally going into the SECCG. What say you guys?
