Bob's Heisman ballot: Pryor on top

Watch Bob rant on video here

Bob Asmussen has HQ's Heisman ballot and, if due today, he'd lean toward ...

1. TERRELLE PRYOR, Ohio State — He's the best player on a national championship contender. Turns out, the big guy can throw the ball a little bit. Maybe the Buckeyes figured if they hid his talents, they could keep him for his senior year. Not now. With the first pick in the 2011 draft, the Cleveland Browns select ... You have to love his 10:2 touchdown to interception ratio, which shows both playmaking ability and great judgment.

2. DENARD ROBINSON, Michigan — The nation's leading rusher is a quarterback. Even after missing time against Bowling Green. He'll be back for the trip to Indiana and should be able to pile up more numbers. Of course, for him to earn the award, Michigan has to win 10 games.

3. COLIN KAEPERNICK, Nevada — The Wolfpack wouldn't be 4-0 without their senior quarterback. Not even close. The only reason he doesn't get more pub is because of his location. Put him on the Michigan or Alabama roster and we'd be talking about him like he was Pryor.
