PCP: (Hesiman) Election ’08

first_imgMason:Bear with me while I throw some numbers at you.3,147. 28. 8-0.Can’t figure out what they mean? Those are Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell’s passing yards, touchdowns, and the Red Raiders’ record (in that order, of course).Absolutely ridiculous.Harrell has proven himself as, statistically, the best quarterback in college football. He’s thrown for almost 400 yards more than the next highest challenger — Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford, who has played the same number of games as Harrell (though Bradford has him bested in the touchdown department by one, but both trail David Johnson of Tulsa’s 32).His interceptions have also dropped dramatically from a year ago — just five so far this season compared to 14 a year ago. He’s also been sacked a mere three times, which doesn’t necessarily reflect on him, but it shows he’s getting the ball to his receivers quickly.But that aforementioned unbeaten record has Texas Tech at No. 6 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll. The Red Raiders are one of four top 10 teams without a blemish on their record and are eyeing up a BCS bowl bid.But wait, you say. What tough teams have Harrell and the Raiders beaten? True, their only win against a ranked opponent came this past weekend against then-No. 23 Kansas. You can’t fault Harrell, however, for the schedule. All the man does is throw for five scores against both the Jayhawks (to go along with 386 yards through the air) and Texas A&M (oh, and he posted 450 yards passing in that game). I know a certain Badger team that wouldn’t mind having those numbers.Tebow? Te-boo. McCoy? More like McBoy. Moreno? Know-way! Harrell for Heisman!Zetlin:OK Count Dracula, you want to play numbers games? Fine, feast on these:360.242.It’s funny you pick Harrell for Heisman because the real trophy winner will be standing across the field from him on Saturday. Oh, and he’s 8-0, too, just so you know.As for those numbers? The first would be Harrell’s total attempts this season; the second is Colt McCoy’s total. Get it?Of course you’re going to have higher totals when you throw the ball 78 more times! Want some more?71.1.81.8.Harrell’s completion percentage versus McCoy’s. 81.8 percent, Mason! Against Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Missouri (I know they have no defense, but the other two are legit).Not only is McCoy the best player on the best team in college football (the Texas Longhorns, for those of you who don’t know), but he’s the best player, period: a sure-thing recipe to bring home the Heisman.But I’ll be fair with you, Mase, because I like Harrell too. If the Red Raiders win on Saturday, I’ll concede this PCP immediately. Too bad they don’t stand a chance. Get ready for Tech to get trounced!The crazy part is, Texas head coach Mack Brown said earlier this season the Horns were going to be better next year. Plus, McCoy already said he’ll be staying for his senior campaign. Scary.Colt McBoy? More like Colt McJoy, when he’ll have one leg up and one arm out come December.last_img read more
