Da'Quan Bowers for Heisman?

So what does everyone think about Bowers for Heisman? Realistically, it's not going to happen. And quite frankly, I couldn't give a shit about the actual Heisman trophy or the voters after C.J. wasn't even invited to New York last year. But what do the fans think about calling Da'Quan the best player in the country?

Just for shits and giggles, let's compare Da'Quan's numbers so far to Ndamukong Suh's numbers at this point last year. According to ESPN, Da'Quan has 40 total tackles and 10 sacks through 7 games this year. Through 7 games last year, Suh (who was invited to NY) had 44 total tackles and 3 sacks.

So who else would you call the best player in the country? Denard Robinson has been pretty impressivee. Cam Newton has been pretty good too. Mark Ingram started the season hurt so he probably won't have the numbers this season. There's some good talent out there but I can't find anyone who I would say is hands-down better than Da'Quan. Obviously it's tough to compare offense to defense, but it doesn't take a genious to see that Bowers is a beast.

Bottom line, Da'Quan deserves to be in the running for the Heisman if he keeps up this pace. He'll be seriously handicapped though if Clemson can't win the ACC because "best player in the country" to Heisman voters just means "a good player on the best team."
