Admit it. You thought you were going to see Jordan Lynch on here didn’t you. I’m terribly sorry to disappoint. Terribly sorry. Wait. What? Who’s Jordan Lynch? Take a minute and look at his numbers. Go ahead. I’ll wait. See! I told you. They are 9-0 and dude has 3,500 yards of total offense with 34 total touchdowns. Not impressed? Ok. I digress.
The +1 unveiled a new #1 this week. It’s not that we are punishing Optimus for his injury or that he did anything to drop. But did you watch Kenjon Barner absolutely make USC look like one of those Pop Warner teams that Snoop Lion coaches against?
That’s one of the most dominant performances I’ve ever seen against a solid team. That goes up there with Herschel and Bo and Cam.
Also, can everyone please jump off the A.J. McCarron for Heisman bandwagon? Yes, he’s a great leader and facilitator. We get that. But how is A.J. anymore of a great facilitator than Marcus Mariota? Also, the +1 loves Mantei Te’O, but is he even the best defensive player in the country? Shouldn’t your stats be EYE-POPPING as a defensive player?
1. Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon (1,295 yards rushing, 67.2 ypc, 19 TD’s; 185 yards receiving, 1 TD) 321 and 5.
2. Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State (1,875 yards passing, 71.1%, 12 TD’s, 2 INT’s; 698 yards rushing, 5.0 ypc, 17 TD’s) Optimus put up almost 300 yards total offense despite not playing the whole game. The +1 is wishing Collin a speedy recovery.
3. Colby Cameron, QB, Louisiana Tech (2,946 yards passing, 71.2%, 24 TD’s, 0 INT’s; 137 yards rushing, 2 TD’s) Remember, you saw him here first.
4. Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson (2,680 yards passing, 67.8%, 25 TD’s, 9 INT’s; 297 yards rushing, 1 TD’s) Tajh threw three interceptions which put a blemish on an otherwise another outstanding game.
5. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M (2,527 yards passing, 66.6%, 16 TD’s, 6 INT’s; 922 yards rushing, 6.7 ypc, 16 TD’s) Johnny “We’re not mentioning his extremely overused nickname” dropped dang near 500 yards on what was supposed to be a really good Mississippi State defense.
+1. Marqise Lee, WR, USC (1,286 receiving yards, 88 receptions, 14.6 ypr, 12 TD’s; 23 kickoff returns, 677 yards, 29.4 ypr, 1 TD)
