The Best of college football

Every since Spring practice, all of the Heisman talk in college football has been around quarterbacks — Florida’s Tim Tebow, Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and Texas’ Colt McCoy.  But after three weeks into the season, the best player in the NCAA plays on the west coast and NOT for Southern California.

The University of California’s junior running back Jahvid Best has been the most dominating player in college football after three weeks of the season than any other player (except for Florida A&M’s LeRoy Vann who has four punt returns for touchdowns) in the nation — outplaying Tebow, McCoy and the injured Bradford combined.

Best has rushed for 412 yards and a national leading eight touchdowns (nine overall) after rushing for five in the Bears 35-21 win over Minnesota.  California went into the game against the Gophers ranked No. 7 according to USA TODAY  and undefeated after dismantling Maryland 52-13 in Week One and Eastern Washington 59-7 in Week Two.

California has two weeks before it faces USC, which if Best can lead his school to the victory, rushing for two or three scores, he will no doubt cement himself as the Heisman front runner — or at least he should.  Recent history has shown that the Heisman doesn’t go to the best player in college football — especially if they’re running backs (Ladainian Tomlinson, Darren McFadden).

So for the sake and integrity of college football, let’s hope that history doesn’t repeat itself — because Jahvid is the Best, above all of the rest.
