Way too early HEISMAN WATCH

January 2006
Sporting News;1/20/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 3, p33
The article analyzes the performance of several college football players in the U.S. If Adrian Peterson of Oklahoma University healthy, he could reach 2,000 yards. He's that good, and the Big 12--other than Texas--will be that bad. Brady Quinn of Notre Dame (ND) has the numbers, the ND publicity machine and the All-American looks. Marshawn Lynch of California is a fast, powerful back primed for a big season--and to grab attention away from the USC Heisman factory.
