I got invited last year to take part in our friend Kyle Kensing's "Detmer Award" over at Saturday Blitz. What exactly is the "Detmer Award"? Here is how he describes it: The five non-BCS conferences and 75 percent of the independents are differentiated from the Big Six in virtually every other facet, so it only makes sense the best players from this subdivision-subdivision have an award for its best player. Just as fitting is for this honor to bear the name of the last player from one of these universities to win college football’s top honor, 1990 Heisman winner and BYU quarterback Ty Detmer. SaturdayBlitz.com will track this completely exclusive field’s progress throughout the season. Here is my week nine ballot based on game performance. Feel free to chime in with who you would have voted for based on last weeks performance...   #1 Jordan Lynch, QB, NIU- His six TDs led the Huskies over WMU. Lynch added 274 yards passing and 136 on the ground. #2 Ryan Griffin, QB, Tulane- Led the Green Wave to just their second victory of the season by passing for 466 yards and 5 TDs on 34/42. #3 Zac Dysert, QB, Miami (OH)- Led the Redhawks to a win over the previously unbeaten Ohio Bobcats. #4 David Carr, QB, Fresno State- He threw a pick six early but bounced back to complete 31 passes for 416 yards and 4 TDs #5 D.J. Hayden, DB, Houston- Had 2 INTs including a 97 yard return for a TD in Houston’s 45-35 win over UTEP. To see the full results of the week on voting make sure you head over to the feature article at The Saturday Blitz.
