Not so fast, Hurdle Boy. Let's wait until the Irish actually play against a boys team before we go overboard.

(Hope all is well.)

IF the Irish can beat SC in 2 weeks AND Clauson plays well, the Heisman will be his to lose. Up to this point, he is hands-down the best player in America. His play has been off the charts and he is proving why he was the #1 recruit in the nation a few years ago. True he hasn't exactly put up these numbers against the nation's top defenses, but who have Tebow and McCoy (ESPN's #1 and #2 Heisman frontrunners) played against this season? Answer - even worse defenses than what Clausen has faced! Let's also remember that Clausen passed for 442 yards against the same defense (Washington) that ONLY allowed 115 passing yards to the Mighty USC Trojan Offense.

Again, it will come down to the USC game for not only Clausen's Heisman hopes, but for the Notre Dame Football Program's reputation.

I don't think Clausen looked particularly polished in his HS games. I mean he had a weird throwing motion, and he never really played anybody. The Cardinal Newman game he looked lackluster. At least with Barkley even if he played poorly, you could tell he was a great prospect. That CN game had me questioning the very legitimacy of Oaks Christian's team and they had 10 D1 players on it (not including the injured MT for that game).

Clausen won't get the Heisman because he'll have to lead the Irish to at the very least a BCS bowl, and I don't think they'll be there with 3 losses. I'm not even sure they'll be there with 2 depending on how the season plays out.

WTF are you talking about what this guy looked like 3 years ago?! We're talking about right now and right now there is not a single QB in the country that looks better than Clausen. If he keeps playing as well as he's playing not only will he be a Top 3 Heisman Candidate but according to the people on College Game Day (ESPN), he would be one of the top 3 QB's taken in the next NFL Draft. The game vs. SC will be HUGE...it's too bad Clausen won't have Michael Floyd out there...I would have loved to see ND's offense go at full strength against the Trojan Defense. Oh well, they'll have to beat them without him.

I agree, at this point in the season Jimmy C. should be leading the race
179 QB rating! 1500yds. 12 TD w/ 2 picks.
And he is winning games late almost every week.
He needs a big game against SC and I'm not too sure that is going to happen

Floyd being out is a huge loss. He is a top 5 receiver nationally.

Golden Tate is mean ass mofo too. Last week against Purdue, with Armando Allen out, he played WR, RB, and QB. He was taking snaps in the wildcat formation and doing it well. This week he had 244 yards receiving and almost 50 yards rushing. He also may be one of the best WRs in the nation.

I hope Gallipo gets run over by ND RB's all game long. He will be the "enemy" on game day.

I'm certain that there is NOT a RB in the country who can run over Gallipo
Gallipo is putting together and All-American type season BTW
