    Due to his injury, it appears he is applying for a medical redshirt so he can play 1 more year at Louisville. He was the #1 Heisman candidate at the beginning of the season. If he does come out he likely will be a LATE 1st RD or 2nd RD pick.

    I watched 3 games of Louisvilles during the season. 1 he got injured. Then in one of the other two the camera focused in on him talking to the offense. The said how big of a leade he was for that team and how he could motivate them really well.

    I liked the fact that he was a leader. Even though he was injured, he was more pumped up about the game and excited than any of the other players.

    All I know is that break was ugly. Joe Theisman ugly. I will be glad to see him run some before he is drafted. Is was not a blazer before the injury, so I will interested in seeing if he was able to maintain he quickness. He was more of a real good big back, much like Dayne but a little better speed.

    I think DD knows he's probably done for good. He's wanting to get out while he can definitely still walk.

    Michael Bush was the #2 RB in the draft IMO. Peterson has been the best RB in his class since his FR year, but M. Bush has very good speed and vision for his size. He is a bruising back with good speed.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville Heisman Trophy and All-America candidate Michael Bush suffered a broken right leg Sunday night early in the third quarter in the Cardinals' game against Kentucky, an injury that will end his season.

    He was also widely considered to be a preseason leading candidate for the 2006 Heisman Trophy.[1]

    Maybe you don't think so, but others do.

    Well the local press might have been beating his drum. I don't think anyone else was seriosly considering him as the Heisman winner. If he could of competed the whole year who knows ? But you're correct I'm sure everyone in Kentucky had him marked for the honor. Just like everyone in Arkansas had McFaddin winning it....Ray Rice in New Jersey, Colt in Texas , Colt in Haw'wi...

    You make a good point but those stories come from ESPN, not the locals.
