What many expected to be the most interesting Heisman race in history took a major hit Saturday when reigning winner
First, those are both big ifs. Second, don't forget Oregon quarterback
My guess is Bradford will get a little more leeway than Dixon because he's the reigning winner, and because he'll be missing games against Idaho State and Tulsa (if he's out only two weeks) as opposed to crucial conference games (Dixon's Ducks lost to Arizona, UCLA and Oregon State without him). We're a long way from all of these things happening -- Bradford must get well first, and the Sooners must fix the holes on their offensive line -- but it's fun to think about. The Watch wishes Bradford a speedy recovery.
As for the rest of the list...
