Wisconsin Football: Is Melvin Gordon Still a Threat in Heisman Race?

Melvin Gordon is everything you could want in a running back. The Wisconsin junior has breakaway speed to go along with the power to shed tacklers and gain yards after contact.

But a solid outing against LSU was marred by the Badgers losing the game, and Gordon followed it up with a 38-yard dud against Western Illinois. ESPN's Heisman Watch following Week 3 did not include Gordon among the top 10 candidates.

The designation of top running back in the country is a special one, and with Georgia's Todd Gurley and Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah in the mix, there may not be a clear-cut answer. But Gordon certainly belongs in the discussion, especially after his 13-carry, 253-yard effort in the Badgers' 68-17 win over Bowling Green on Saturday.

That's nearly 20 yards per carry if quick math isn't your strong suit. If football isn't either, let's just say that's a mind-boggling statistic, even against a mid-major team like the Falcons.

Gordon hit paydirt five times in the victory, giving him six rushing touchdowns on the year. It was a incredible performance the likes of which hasn't been seen in quite some time.

The shifty back must have seen his name disparaged or ignored over the past two weeks, given the way he came out and played on Saturday. After the game, Gordon told reporters that he used such doubts as fuel.

"I was motivated," the junior ball-carrier said. "I heard a lot of people doubting me saying 'I can't do this, I can't do that.' That definitely motivated me to get out there and do what I needed to do."

Like several other top Heisman candidates at this point in the season, Gordon is the focal point for opposing defenses. In other words, he's one of those players you have to create an entire game plan around.

If that alone doesn't put him in the discussion, well, what does?

As Josh Norris of NBC Sports noted, Gordon hasn't exactly been seeing wide-open grass to run on:

To become the first rusher to win the Heisman since Alabama's Mark Ingram in 2009, Gordon will have to bull his way past Oregon's Marcus Mariota, perhaps the top quarterback in the country. Texas A&M's Kenny Hill and Notre Dame's Everett Golson are two other signal-callers who could prove formidable in the Heisman race, but the toughest tests lie ahead on each team's respective schedule.

Another absolute certainty when it comes to the Heisman Trophy is the winner having a highlight reel worthy of the history books. Mariota did his part against Michigan State with several miraculous third-down escapes, and his touchdown dive against Wyoming was yet another play that left you shaking your head.

Those "wow" plays don't generally come against mid-majors, but Gordon also bucked the trend with several of his runs against Bowling Green. Of note was this 50-yard scamper in which he burst through the line, outran all but one player and then shoved off the last defender with a stiff-arm.

The most impressive aspect of the run wasn't necessarily the stiff-arm itself or the speed, but the fact that Gordon made the move in rhythm and without slowing down.

One final unwritten rule of the Heisman Trophy in its current form is that the winner plays for a great team, and generally one in the hunt for a major bowl at the end of the season, if not a national title. The Badgers' schedule sets up perfectly for just that.

Nebraska is the only ranked team remaining on the slate, and the Cornhuskers must travel to Madison. If Wisconsin can stay focused throughout the remainder of the season, there's a good chance it'll reach Indianapolis and square off against Michigan State with a chance to potentially make the four-team playoff. Shredding the Spartans' defense would also be an impressive statement from Gordon in his final bid for the Heisman.

Is Melvin Gordon still a threat to win the Heisman? By putting up monster numbers each week, dazzling us with highlight-reel plays and leading the Badgers to a strong finish, he will remain at the forefront of trophy talks.

So far, so good.

Troy vs. Georgia: Game Grades, Analysis for the Bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs got back on track with a resounding 66-0 victory over the Troy Trojans on Saturday.  Thanks to an early lead, the Dawgs were able to play a lot of young players and try a few things out.

Georgia ran the ball well and threw it efficiently on offense.  Defensively, secondary struggles remained a factor, but a few forced turnovers kept Troy off the scoreboard.  Notably, the special teams units rebounded nicely from last week's nightmare against South Carolina.

Here are position group game grades and analysis for both halves. 

 

Georgia Bulldogs Grade Analysis

Passing Offense

Hutson Mason threw the ball well, but the most encouraging sign of the day in the passing game was the performance by his backup, Brice Ramsey, and several young receivers.  The future of this Georgia passing attack is very bright.  Young receivers Kenneth Towns, Shakenneth Williams and tight end Jeb Blazevich all made impressive receptions.  Even Faton Bauta, the third-team quarterback, was impressive late in the game.

 

Rushing Offense

Georgia ran the ball at will in the first half.  Todd Gurley was lightly used but still racked up over 70 yards on just six carries, and Sony Michel turned seven carries into three touchdowns and 138 first-half yards.  The ground attack was equally potent in the second half when Isaiah McKenzie and Brendan Douglas got involved.  Surpassing the 350-yard mark as a team is a solid accomplishment, regardless of the opponent.

 

Pass Defense

Yet again, Georgia's pass defense left much to be desired—especially early.  In the first half, four different Troy receivers hauled in passes in excess of 18 yards.  Any time Georgia failed to disrupt the passer, long completions were a possibility.  

The performance against the pass improved slightly in the last half of the game, but Troy still had a number of big plays through the air.  Several young Bulldogs, most notably Rico Johnson and Tramel Terry, looked strong in the secondary.

 

Run Defense

Goergia's run defense was stellar throughout the day. Troy committed to establishing the run early but failed to do so.  As a result, the Trojan offense became either one-dimensional or ineffective. 

 

Special Teams

Kicker Marshall Morgan got back on track in the first half with a field goal, and return specialist Isaiah McKenzie ran a punt back for a score.  Later in the game, Reggie Davis put together a highlight of his own on a punt return, though he did not score.  Fantastic showing by the special teams units.

 

Coaching

The best coaching done by this Georgia staff came in substitutions.  The Bulldog coaches did a nice job of getting young guys playing time early and often and keeping stars like Todd Gurley away from unnecessary wear and tear.  Any criticisms of the coaching after a 66-0 victory are misplaced.

Iowa's Damond Powell Gets 62 Yards on Sick 1-Handed Catch vs. Pitt

Iowa Hawkeyes receiver Damond Powell was definitely able to make up for the drop that led to an interception earlier against the Pittsburgh Panthers.

In the third quarter of Saturday's game, Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard found Powell deep for a 62-yard gain thanks to a beautiful one-handed catch from the senior receiver.

Melvin Gordon vs. Bowling Green: Stat Line, Highlights, Twitter Reaction

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon had a disappointing performance against Western Illinois in Week 2, but it's safe to say he bounced back with his absolutely dominant performance against Bowling Green on Saturday.

The junior halfback posted four touchdowns in the first half, three of them in the second quarter. He ripped through the Bowling Green defense with incredible ease. His biggest string of highlight-worthy moves in the first half came on a fantastic 50-yard touchdown run.

Take a look at the play, courtesy of ESPN:

He topped that play with a 69-yard scoring run early in the third quarter. Here is a look at Gordon's stats so far in this contest:

Gordon's first-half fumble provided much-needed evidence that he is indeed a mere mortal, but that fact will likely be overlooked in the wake of this game. His yards-per-carry average against Bowling Green is certifiably absurd and ample justification for the reaction from football observers on Twitter.

Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith noted that Gordon set a record during this contest:

Sportswriter Ivan Carter recalled the halcyon days of Ron Dayne's Wisconsin career while watching Gordon wreak havoc against Bowling Green:

Gordon's performance rendered useless the descriptive powers of Fox Sports Wisconsin's Jesse Temple:

The Badgers have yet to establish a passing game this season, so expect them to continue to rely heavily on Gordon throughout the season, much to the delight of their fans.

Quarterback Taysom Hill has been impressive so far this season, leading the Cougars in both passing and rushing. He and the rest of this BYU team will look to get revenge on Virginia, who won last season's matchup.

Virginia head coach Mike London has been on the hot seat, so a win could really help him gain momentum moving forward. The Cavaliers played UCLA to a close game and are coming off a big win over Louisville.

Virginia is an improved team this season, so it could also be a solid win for BYU to add to its resume.

Keith Marshall Injury: Updates on Georgia Star's Leg and Return

Georgia head coach Mark Richt saw enough injuries to his team last year, so the last thing he wanted to happen was losing another key cog in the machine this season. Unfortunately, the football gods didn't agree.

Running back Keith Marshall is the latest casualty of bad luck in Georgia, leaving the game against Troy with an apparent injury to his legaccording to 247 Sports' Gentry Estes:

Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph describes the scene:

Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald has more on Marshall:

It's hard not to feel bad for Marshall right now. His 2013 season ended on October 5 after suffering a torn ACL. He worked his way back and was earning rave reviews from Richt during the summer, via Edward Aschoff of ESPN.com:

Keith looks great. I've watched him run straight ahead; he looks outstanding in that area. I don't know if he'd say he's 100 percent today, but he has no limitations whatsoever in his training. He can run routes, he can pass [skeleton], he can do anything. 

We think Day 1, he'll be 100 percent, ready to compete.

The silver lining for Georgia in light of Marshall's injury is the team already has one of the best running backs in the country, Todd Gurley, to carry the load.

Gurley was drawing considerable Heisman buzz before the season. ESPN's Desmond Howard even said that the star running back would "jumpstart" his award-winning year against Clemson on an episode of College Gameday:

As lofty as the expectations are for Gurley, the Bulldogs have to be cautious with their No. 1 running back. He missed three games in 2013 due to an ankle injury and was limited in others dealing with a bad hamstring and nausea. 

Marshall hasn't been the picture of health either, as evidenced by this recent issue. He played in just five games last season before having his season ended prematurely against Tennessee. Now the redshirt junior is dealing with another ailment. 

It takes a special kind of athlete to play running back. Marshall has proven to be up to the challenge when he's on the field, averaging 5.8 yards per carry in his first two years with the team.

Physically, though, Marshall has run into a glut of bad luck and may never reach his full potential as a result.

Michigan State DE Shilique Calhoun Body Slams Eastern Michigan QB Rob Bolden

The Michigan State Spartans had a huge 49-0 lead heading into halftime, as their defense continued to shut down the Eastern Michigan Eagles offense with just one yard allowed.

During the first half, Spartans defensive end Shilique Calhoun demolished Eastern Michigan quarterback Rob Bolden with this body slam after he had already thrown the ball.

Surprisingly, Calhoun was not called for a penalty on the play. What makes the play even better is having WWE announcer Jim Ross making the call on the Vine above.

Sony Michel vs. Troy: Stat Line, Highlights, Twitter Reaction

The Georgia Bulldogs have no shortage of talent in the backfield with star running back Todd Gurley in the fold. SEC defensive coordinators can now add freshman running back Sony Michel to their list of migraine-inducing phenoms.

The young rusher eviscerated the Troy defense on Saturday, powering through defenders and showing off remarkable open-field speed on his way to a three-touchdown first-half performance. 

Take a look at Michel's absurd stat line from the first half against Troy.

Michel got the nod over Gurley in the Bulldogs' short-yardage situations, powering into the end zone from eight and six yards out in the first quarter. SportsCenter provided a look at his supreme showing of strength in the first 15-minute period.

Athens (Ga.) Banner-Herald writer Marc Weiszer noted the Bulldogs didn't need to move the ball through the air on that drive, relying on a steady supply of Gurley and Michel:

This fan was happy the Bulldogs avoided the passing game and gave props to Michel:

Michel also had time to show he was more than just a situational back with a sensational 75-yard scamper in the first half.

UGASports.com's Anthony Dasher noted he was back to his linebacker-breaking ways on the very next play:

With the Bulldogs up 45-0 at halftime, Gurley probably could have taken the day off and let Michel do all the work. He still put up 73 rushing yards of his own in the first half on just six carries.

Head coach Mark Richt has a fantastic problem moving forward with two supremely athletic halfbacks to keep happy. Michel may take away crucial touches from Gurley as the season progresses, which could perhaps prevent the latter from making a run at the Heisman Trophy.

However, missing out on personal accolades likely won't be an issue for any Georgia player if Michel can help propel the team to the top of the SEC.

LSU Fans Celebrate 'Death Valley' with Casket Beer Cooler at Tailgate

LSU football fans can get pretty creative, especially when it comes to refrigerating their beers.

Before Saturday's game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs, a few Tigers fans broke out this casket-shaped cooler at the tailgate to celebrate "Death Valley." As awesome as it looks, it must be a real pain to transport to the stadium.

Todd Gurley vs. Troy: Stat Line, Highlights, Twitter Reaction

It was a good news-bad news game for the Georgia Bulldogs against Troy on Saturday. The good news is the Bulldogs quickly put their loss against South Carolina behind them with a dominant performance. The bad news is it didn't give Todd Gurley much to do. 

Georgia's star running back and Heisman hopeful wasn't asked to do much early in a game that was 45-0 at the half. He did, however, manage to make an impression on the few opportunities available. Gurley had four carries on the Bulldogs' first drive, including a 48-yard romp on his second carry. 

Gurley finished the day with 73 yards on just six carries. No one was expecting this game to be close, so seeing Mark Richt protect his best player isn't a surprise, especially since Georgia's SEC schedule resumes next week with a home game against Tennessee. 

It was also a memorable 73 yards for Gurley, as ESPN's College Football Twitter feed noted he needed just 32 yards to pass Knowshon Moreno on Georgia's all-time rushing list:

Since the moments against Troy weren't plentiful, we are forced to savor what Gurley gave us like it is the last piece of pie for the season. Fortunately, the SEC Network's official Twitter feed provided the highlight of Gurley's 48-yard run:

One of the drawbacks of playing against weaker competition, which so often results in blowouts like the one Georgia had on Saturday, is they can put an end to impressive streaks if things get out of hand early. Since Gurley only had six touches for 73 yards, his streak of consecutive games with at least 100 yards from scrimmage ended at six, via ESPN's College Gameday:

Bleacher Report SEC writer Barrett Sallee did provide analysis on Gurley's ability that fans of video games will appreciate:

It's meant to be humorous, but is there a better weapon in college football right now than Gurley? The junior entered the game averaging 9.4 yards per carry, and he wasn't putting up numbers against cupcakes. Georgia played Clemson and South Carolina, two ranked teams, in its first two games. 

Coming into this week, there are only three other FBS players averaging more than nine yards per carry with at least 30 carries: Arkansas' Jonathan Williams, Tulane's Sherman Badie and Arizona State's D.J. Foster.

When you factor in the competition, though, it's not even close. Williams' numbers are largely the result of 143 yards on four carries against Nicholls State; Foster has beat up on Weber State, New Mexico and Colorado; and Badie's yards came against Tulsa (15 carries, 215 yards).

Georgia had a hiccup last week against South Carolina, though anyone who watched the game knows Gurley can't be blamed for that. He had 131 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries. This week was a glorified scrimmage for the Bulldogs and their star running back. Even with the limited action against Troy, Gurley still left us with a moment to put on his Heisman reel.

Why Jameis Winston Is the Only Person at Fault for Suspension

By now, chances are that if you're a college football fan, you've heard about the suspension of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. Winston, last year's Heisman winner, had made an obscene comment in the student union Tuesday that was degrading toward women. As a result, he will not play in Saturday's game against Clemson, according to Dan Wolken of USA Today.

It's a given that what he pulled was just another mistake in a line of mistakes (e.g., shoplifting crab legs). It's a given that he's an extremely talented individual who led the Seminoles to a national championship last season. It's a given that the outcome of today's game against Clemson is in question since the Seminoles are without Winston (backup QB Sean Maguire will start today's game).

But it is also a given that he's a student first and an athlete second.

According to Mike Dyce of Fansided.com, several FSU students have been conducting something of a "witch hunt," trying to find other students on Twitter who first tweeted about Winston's actions on Tuesday. Some accused the other students of selling out Winston, while other students simply deactivated their accounts.

Not only was this unacceptable behavior from Winston, but it was also unacceptable behavior from the students who blasted the other students for tweeting what happened.

On Winston's end, sure. He's a 20-year-old college guy living large on the Florida State campus. Immaturity is a given in college life—but to an extent. He's the biggest name in college football in 2014, for one. He's also the biggest name on the FSU campus. You would think that with all that responsibility one would act accordingly.

Not to assault one's individuality or anything, but Winston took his "humor" a bit too far. The eyes of the sports world will be watching—even when you think they aren't—when you have "Heisman winner" attached to your name. This was something he should have thought through. Instead, he had a "Manziel moment." Reporters, get your microphones ready. 

But instead he didn't. As a result, the Seminoles' chances of blowing through Clemson have dimmed a bit. This could very well affect their hopes of a championship repeat. That just goes to show that even the smallest of slips can have the biggest of consequences when you're in the spotlight.

As for the FSU students accusing their peers for "selling out," when it comes to university life, there are more important issues than sports. Florida State University is a reputable school that just so happens to have an excellent sports program.

But it isn't a school that was built around a sports program. Rather, the school came first. Schools are places of thought and knowledge and would like to be perceived as such. Not as places where your star QB can fill out the stereotypical "idiot academic" type seen in other universities.

However, there's still hope for Winston that he may turn his attitude around and be not only a productive QB but a productive role model for the sport. He's intelligent and, as previously mentioned, extremely talented.

But if he keeps up with the foolish mistakes, he'll just become another face in the crowd. The choice is his and his alone.

Georgia Football: J.J. Green Ejected for Targeting Penalty vs. Troy

It was a tough start on Saturday for former Georgia running back J.J. Green, now a defensive back for the Bulldogs. After receiving limited playing time in the first two games of the season, Green entered in the first quarter against Troy and was promptly ejected for a targeting penalty (via Gentry Estes, 247sports):

That it happened on Green's very first moment of action has to be discouraging for a player who has worked so hard after transitioning from the offense.

But was it a good call in the first place?

The targeting rule, which has been the subject of much, er, discussion over the past few years, tends to rear its ugly head week in and week out and more often than not, the interpretation is in question.

Every ejection is reviewed, and you would think that would help clear up some of the trickier calls.  However, it seems to only subject the officials to further criticism given that folks expect the right decision to be made every time if a review is allowed.

Bleacher Report's Barrett Sallee was among those who disagreed with the ejection of Green:

Part of the problem stems from the speed of plays, where referees simply do not have the ability to see exactly what occurred during the hit. With the head and shoulders often making contact simultaneously with the offensive player, sometimes how the hit merely looks seems to be what prompts the ejection.

Fortunately for Green and the Bulldogs, he'll be back again next week when Tennessee comes to town. The Vanderbilt Commodores will follow the Volunteers into Athens the week after that, giving Mark Richt's team plenty of time to get things squared away in the secondary after allowing Dylan Thompson to throw for 271 yards in South Carolina's 38-35 victory on Sept. 20th.

College Football Week 4: Live Scores, Highlights and Reaction

Are we in for another wild week of college football? The start of the 2014 season has been unpredictable, and Week 4 has a number of games that could go either way.

The biggest highlights on the schedule are a pair of conference openers: Florida at Alabama (3:30 p.m. ET on CBS) and Clemson at Florida State (8 p.m. ET on ESPN).

Can the Gators put last season in the past by hanging with (or even beating) Alabama? Will Jameis Winston's suspension doom the Seminoles against their biggest conference rival?

Also starting conference play this week are the Oklahoma Sooners, who hit the road for the first time this season to play West Virginia in Morgantown (7:30 p.m. ET on Fox). The Mountaineers upset Oklahoma State around this same time last season. They played Alabama tough in Week 1 and are coming off a 694-yard offensive performance in a road win at Maryland.

Might Trevor Knight and the Sooners be on upset alert?

Elsewhere on the conference schedule, LSU's young offense faces a plucky Mississippi State defense in Baton Rouge (7 p.m. ET on ESPN) while nonconference games such as Miami at Nebraska (8 p.m. ET on ESPN2), Virginia at BYU (3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN) and North Carolina at East Carolina (3:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU) are assured to have an impact on the Week 5 polls.
