TEAMS:
If we have learned anything regarding a Heisman candidate over the past couple of seasons, it’s to not trust his early season play. Sure, it’s great to jump out of the gate right away as a Heisman favorite, but you can ask Andrew Luck and Denard Robinson. It doesn’t mean anyting. Through the first two games, Geno Smith had 9 incompletions. You think that’s impressive? He also had 9 touchdowns (10 if you count a rushing TD in the season opener). Those are absolutely crazy numbers. And if you can think back to last season, Robert Griffin III put up the same type of incompletions to touchdowns ratio. But no road is crystal clear, and Smith’s smudge came last week against Texas Tech, a 49-14 loss. Going into that game, I would have argued along side most of the college football world that Geno Smith was far and away the number one candidate to hoist the Heisman at the end of the season. The Red Raiders had alternate plans. Be sure to check out other great articles at Heavy in the Games...

What this does mean is the race is wide open again with other candidates back in the running. I still think it’s Smith’s to lose...

Kansas State visits West Virginia: the preview

The Lowdown: In was trying to figure out how to best describe the differences between these two teams, I popped open a thesaurus and typed in "opposite." The results: contrasted, diametrically opposed, different, and dissimilar. Whatever word you use, there aren't two offenses in the Big 12 more "diametrically opposed" that what you'll see on the field...
