- The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 8, 2006

1. Brady Quinn, Notre Dame: With 2,579 yards, 25 touchdowns and only four interceptions, the Irish star is easily the right call for the award at the moment.

2. Troy Smith, Ohio State: Do a couple hundred rushing yards make the Buckeyes’ QB better than Quinn? Nope.

3. Mike Hart, Michigan: Wolverines’ backfield grinder ranks fourth nationally with 1,281 yards rushing.

4. Steve Slaton, West Virginia: Forget the fumbles against Louisville; Slaton (151.88 yards rushing a game) probably should earn an invitation to New York.

5. Ray Rice, Rutgers: Scarlet Knights tailback will be in the spotlight when Louisville visits the Garden State tonight.

6. Ian Johnson, Boise State: The Broncos sophomore leads the nation with 20 touchdowns while playing for an unbeaten team. Not that voters should care about a team’s performance while selecting the best individual player.
