09:45 AM ET 11.13 | Saturday's nationally televised game against No. 6 Oregon was seen by many as a grand event for the No. 3 Cardinal. A victory, coupled with a superlative performance from quarterback Andrew Luck, could cement Luck's status as the Heisman Trophy favorite and thrust the Cardinal squarely into the latest Bowl Championship Series title game discussion. Instead, Stanford's magical season unraveled, as Oregon crushed - or, really, ran away with - the Cardinal's undefeated season while also dealing a significant blow to Luck's Heisman hopes.

Weeden from OKla St should be the front runner.

Since the Heisman is tilted toward a player on a winning team instead of the best player period, just give it to a player from the team that wins the National Championship.

From what I've seen, the best player hasn't really been mentioned very much if at all...but his QB has...and it isn't Luck.

Justin Blackmon...nuff said.

Luck didn't have a very good game last night, but maybe, just maybe the Ducks had something to do with it.

He would give me pause for thought if I had the number one pick. I would listen to trade offers, especially a team like the colts that are a mess all over.

Yeah, I'm sure glad I'm not an NFL scout.

Put a stable of quality receivers with him and see what he looks like!

Luck will still get his check when all is said and done.

Yeah it would be very interesting if Barkley and Luck swapped teams for a couple of games.

How many missed yesterday? It really showed. I didn't see a lot of the game, but every time i looked at it, i saw a drop or a bad route. This time of year, depth starts to come into play.

I said it would not even be close, the Ducks would run away with it, yep, I got lucky. :-)

I thought Oregon had too much speed for Stanford, but damn I thought the game would be closer.
