Johnny Football! 2013 Heisman Odds Are Out; Why I Won't Bet on Johnny

Categories: Game Time, Sports

Ameer Abdullah (RB Nebraska) 18/1
Seriously? Two Nebraska guys in the top 13? Really?

Marcus Mariota (QB Oregon) 18/1
If Chip Kelly were still at Oregon, I'd be all over Mariota at 18/1. Then again, if Chip Kelly were still at Oregon, Mariota wouldn't be 18/1.

T.J. Yeldon (RB Alabama) 18/1
Brett Hundley (QB UCLA) 20/1
Heading into the "may as well burn your money" part of the board. To take a UCLA quarterback, you have to believe UCLA can be a top 5 team. I don't believe that. Not for one goddamn minute.

Lache Seastrunk (RB Baylor) 20/1
I know one guy who's firing on Lache Seastrunk at 20/1...Lache Seastrunk!!

Everett Golson (QB Notre Dame) 22/1
Stephen Morris (QB Miami) 25/1
Blake Bell (QB Oklahoma) 30/1
Pretty bold to place a wager on a guy before we know if he can throw it more than five yards. I'll pass on the Belldozer.

Jeff Driskel (QB Florida) 30/1
Ka'Deem Carey (RB Arizona) 33/1
An Arizona running back...seriously I'd rather put a homeless guy in a sleeper hold and then jam a hundred dollar bill in his unconscious mouth like Ted DiBiase used to do just for fun than bet a hundy on Ka'Deem Carey to win the Heisman.

Devin Gardner (QB Michigan) 40/1
This is actually intriguing. Michigan should be a pretty solid team in Year 3 of the Brady Hoke Era and Gardner was actually more in control of the offense when he played last season than Denard Robinson was.

Stefon Diggs (WR Maryland) 40/1
Maryland wide I said about Carey, find me a homeless guy. I'm ready to slap on that sleeper hold.
