Darren McFadden of Arkansas does everything you need to do to earn a Heisman. Playing against the #1 team in the nation? Run for three touchdowns. Oh – throw for one while you are at it!
And do it on prime time TV in a triple overtime game.
Considering Arkansas’s overall season, does Darren McFadden have a chance at the Heisman?
I think so. He played more plays from the line of scrimmage without a quarterback on the field then I can recall seeing in my lifetime. When there is no quarterback on the field McFadden becomes an even larger target for the defense. But McFadden delivered more often than not. He delivered in a lot of different ways, and he delivered a win.
Yes, he gets my vote for the Heisman.
