College football fans love to debate -- whether it’s the merits of a playoff system, the lack of compensation for players or who’ll win this year’s Heisman, there are few issues everyone is in agreement with. But with all thee fans and media debating these topics, nobody is sure how the players feel … until now. Over the past month, SI’s reporters have spoken with a starter from all 119 Division I-A schools. To view the full survey, click here. Among the responses, here are some things that stuck out to us.      

 
Darren McFadden is the favorite to win this year’s Heisman (58%)– not a huge surprise – but second is not Hawaii’s Colt Brennan or West Virginia’s Steve Slaton. It is USC sophomore John David Booty.

 
Pete Carroll is doing something right. He was picked not only as the coach most players would like to suit up for, but the Trojans are the overwhelming favorite (48.7%) to win this year’s national championship.

 
Can we just make this playoff thing happen? An overwhelming amount of players (73.1%) are in favor of it, including just about everyone in the SEC (10 out of 11 schools).

Most players (60.5%) don’t bother to read message boards and blogs. Our guess is that number is more, but they weren’t willing to admit it.

What’s your reaction to the survey?
