Should LeFevour be considered a front-runner for the Heisman in 2008?

Central Michigan's Dan LeFevour finished the season with 27 passing touchdowns and 19 rushing, falling just short of joining Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow of Florida as the only players to have 20 of each in the same season.

Central Michigan won their conference championship and almost beat Purdue in their bowl game. Shouldn't LeFevour be considered a front-runner for the Heisman in 2008?

Why not?

    LeFevour is definatly a great player and has the ability to be a first day pick in the '10(?) draft. Especially coming from the MAC which never hurts as a QB. As far as Heisman, he may "technically" be a candidate going in top next season but his only legit crack at it will be his senior year. The good news for him is that I believe the team only has started 3 seniors so they are young and will continue to improve. It boils down to whether or not head coach Butch Jones stays or leaves for WV, as good a player as LeFevour is 3 head coaches in 3 years will be hard to overcome.

    The odds of a none BCS conference teams player winning the Heisman are very low.

    A none BCS player is usually in the top 5 candidates but no matter how well they play, they will be too much doubt to make them the winner.

    It is exactly like the teams they play for example: Hawaii they are the country's only undefeated team but they didn't get to go to the championships even though a two loss team did.

    P.S. I am not saying Hawaii should be in the National title game I am just saying that they didn't face hard enough competition to legitimately prove they belonged.

    I don't think he should be considered because he simply doesn't play in a tough conference. His situation is similar to that of Hawaii and Colt Brennan, as well as Central Florida's Kevin Smith. He may wind up having the most single-season rushing yards, yet he doesn't even finish in the top 5 of the Heisman voting.

    HAHA!!!! Tebow is the front runner. No one from Central Michigan has a shot.

    i do no longer think of Tebow could make it for the 2nd 12 months in a row and its in contrast to he's the main suitable QB available. i think of i could flow with Graham Harrell according to what in simple terms got here approximately in this night's activity.

  • no because the voters only go for the big name players they would never vote for a guy on a team that lost to North Dakota State 44-14

    I doubt it. MAC players don't get the recognition that they deserve. He'd probably be a better NFL QB than a lot of the big names.

    If you're from Non-BCS conferences, you almost never have a chance.

    Just ask Colt Brennan
