    Tebow won't repeat because he won't have to carry his team.

    MY money is on Beanie. He played through injury last season and played better against better opponents.

    Very slim. He set the bar high, unless it's a down year in college football he'd have to at the least match last season to win it imo. That's tough to do.

    Wells has to be the favorite with the Oline he has and defenses he'll face.

    Moreno is a stud, but I think that long brutal schedule could wear him down, as well as possible over-use.

    Tebow really depends on the success of the team as a whole. I doubt he'll match his numbers from last season but hopefully the defense will step up and their improved record will help. He will also be a marked man, I've seen plenty of articles with rival players saying they will be gunning for him this season.

    He most likely won't have the same record stats he did last year but IF they are in the NC game its definitely possible.

    Well I think you could toss a coin between Beanie Wells and Tim Tebow.

    Beanie has a great Oline and great defense and he will be asked to carry a lot of the load. You also have to consider the defense's he will play. A lot of weak teams on the schedule

    Tim Tebow has so many weapons around him and the offense that he is in will beneifit him. Plus a improved defense may actually get him even more chances to score without teams having soo many 13 play drives. However he will be hurt by the SEC's powerful defenses.


    Wild card is Moreno. Wonder how he will do after a great season last year. If he and Beanie were close in yards and TD's I would easily give him the nod only because he will play have the hardest schedule and play some great D's

    Knowshon Moreno is a stud. Saw him live @ the Sugar Bowl. Ran all over my beloved Warriors. He's my pick.

    Georgia has a great o-line too. The best in the country IMHO.

    For Moreno to win he will have to play lights out every game. I think if he can lead the bulldogs to the top spot he will get a shot at winning it. But I still think its either Tebow or Wells. Wells is the best Runningback in the nation. I like the fact he ran better against better opponents.

    I like Pat White but I don't see him winning it. I don't think he should be in that three spot.

    Well he did play injured all year last year. I'm thinking 175 YPG this year and around 20-25 TD's.

    I don't know how you say he will have to run lights out every game. I think he just needs to keep pace with Beanie. If its close between Beanie and Moreno I would take Moreno just cause of the caliber of defense's he will be playing againist. I don't know if I would say Beanie is better, But I would not say Moreno is better either. Its very close


    Ohio State's Oline will be very good this year as well

    If Crabtree can improve on the year he had last year (which will be tough IMO) he has a chance. For a WR to put up #s like that 2 straight years would be crazy, even if it is in a pass happy system. Dude is electric.

    And I know Motion lost a bet to me last year about Harvin, but if he stays healthy all year (and still gets some carries) I could see him being in it.

    Yeah the biggest key of all. He has gained some muscle and not lost speed. Tebow was saying how he wanted Harvin to win it this year
