Tough sledding ahead for Teddy Bridgewater in the Heisman Trophy stakes. Somehow Chris Huston, a blogger for CBS Sports, compiled a list on the leading Heisman Trophy candidates for the 2013 college football season in which there is no mention of the University of Louisville sophomore quarterback.  Huston’s list, largely consisting of quarterbacks, included players from the usual schools like Ohio State, Oregon, Alabama, Southern Cal, UCLA, and Oklahoma. Eighteen players total, doubtful he would have included Bridgewater if the list were longer. A comment from this observer about a list not even mentioning Bridgewater not being very credible was deleted within five minutes. Not surprising since this is same site that allowed Matt Jones, a University of Kentucky fan, to attack anything associated with the UofL for a while. Huston’s qualifications include a former job as an assistant sports information director at the University of Southern California.and he writes on regular basis for the Bleacher Report. Huston’s site, HeismanPundit.com, says this about him: Huston coordinates the Heismanpundit Heisman Straw Poll, a weekly survey of Heisman voter sentiment.  The poll was the most accurate of all the Heisman polls in each of the last four years, picking five of the top six finishers in the final vote in 2008 while correctly tabbing the top four in both 2009 and 2010 and, most impressively, the top seven in 2011. He became a Heisman voter himself in August of 2009. Maybe Huston missed Teddy’s performance in the Rutgers game when he guided a 10-2 Louisville team to a BCS bowl, playing with a broken wrist and a badly sprained ankle. Somehow overlooked a season in which Bridgewater, as a sophomore, completed 267 of 387 passes, or 69% of his attempts, for 3,452 yards and 25 passes. Takes a lot to Huston excited, or was it that he just wasn’t paying attention. When a co-called expert on the Heisman is so clueless, it is obvious that Teddy Bridgewater faces some major hurdles in being considered a contender for football’s most coveted award. His best chance to turn heads comes Jan. 2 in a prime time performance against Florida in the Sugar Bowl.
