Meet Elvis Dumervil, DE, Louisville

Get this, in 5 games, Dumervil has posted:

35 total tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 15 sacks, 1 INT, 7 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery


But of course it's simply impossible to think he could be the best college football player in the country because he plays defense.

Impossible? Tell that to Charles Woodson.

Yeah, it is a travesty that the Heisman has essentially become the best QB, RB or WR on a top 5 team competition.

Woodson also played offense and special teams (kick/punt returner). And there have been far more dominating CBs than Woodson that never sniffed the Heisman.

hmm.....you got a point there. If I was one of the guys doing the voting on the Heisman, it'd be Brady Quinn (:woot: )followed by Elvis Dumervil. Matt Leinart doesn't need another one.

6th in '94.

They usually throw a bone to an offensive lineman (Orlando Pace) or defensive player (Sapp, Lavar Arrington, Steve Emtman) with the thinking that they'd come across as if they're considering every position. But it's a joke.
