07:40 AM ET 12.17 | By way of Jameis Winston, Archie Griffin remains the lone player in college football history to repeat as a Heisman Trophy winner. Let's take a look at some of the best-positioned candidates for 2014 including Winston, who makes this way-too-early list because the redshirt freshman will be returning to Tallahassee next season. ... Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia: There is no doubt that players such as Andre Williams, Tre Mason and Ka'Deem Carey had magnificent 2013 seasons. But if he's healthy, Gurley is the best running back in the country. He not only uses his strength and speed to pick up yards on the ground (903 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in an injury-plagued year), but he is also a threat as a pass-catcher out of the backfield (30 catches and five scores).

Sooooo, considering all this fuss over Gurley being the next coming of Herschel, then it follows that UGaly ought to be pushing Bammer aside for next year's Walmart Crystal Fotoball Tour, right?

How so? The last questionable Heisman winner was Ingram. Cam, RGIII, Manziel, and Winston were all the best CFB offensive players that year.

Wait a minute. Folks were complaining on T&R this Sept. about speculation on the 2013 Heisman winner. This is prime rib BS.

One year out, do you think Winston was on any list? How about RGIII, Newton, or Johnny Football?

These lists are BS...

Well the last 2 have had a lot of baggage with them. I also believe there is more to the critera then just being the best Offensive player that year, which in itself is subjective. We all have our own ideas of what the best player should cosist of. Ingram, RGIII I have no problem with good choices there, But even Cam brought some bagage also. They are all very talented players, but sometimes you have to take more into consideration, because there are a lot of very talented player out there. IMHO I believe they could make some better choices for Heisman.

No, it follows that Penn State will shut Georgia and Herschel 2.0 down in the Championship Game if memory serves me correctly.

I pegged RGIII to be the next Andre Ware, looks like I was spot on.

Problem is Mark Richt cannot coach talent to a higher level. Richt cannot develop players to achieve greatness. Richt needs to move on and get a fresh start.

He does a good job developing QBs....but overall I agree with the troll

PDX, do UGA fans really want to ditch Richt? If so, THEN who? Apparently nobody has more money than TX, so,obviously, they get first pick.
