-It is clear that most people consider Tim Tebow, the Heisman leader right now, but to say that it's his lose is inaccurate.
-Ryan jokes about his recent use of his Communication degree and his quotes reinforce the idea that it is hard to like #12 because he says and does everything right.

-Army S Caleb Campbell has Matty Ice holding strong in his Heisman watch.

-Your Wednesday Mel Kiper bonanza:

Dave (Toronto): Who's drafted first, Brohm or Woodson?

SportsNation Mel Kiper: First of all, I think Matt Ryan, we've established as the No. 1 QB taken. Brohm or Woodson is a race to the finish. I give the slightest edge to Brohm. But we're only about a quarter of the way through the evaluation process. You have the season, the bowl games, all-star games and the combine.

Jon (Fairfax, VA): BC or VT? Who ya got?

SportsNation Mel Kiper: The homefield is so critical in these big games. The teams that have nothing to lose. This is a big game for VT, but they've already lost one. They're out of the national title picture and BC is trying to prove they're legit. First big game on the road. Having Matt Ryan gives them a chance to beat anybody. Look at this game and the homefield will be huge. BC has the best player on the field in Matt Ryan.
