I wonder if Shipley is a Judds' fan?



“Why Not Me?” - The more I think about what the ESPN announcers said towards the end of the UT/CU game, the more I am starting to see the light -  Why shouldn't Jordan Shipley be in the mix for the Heisman?  Right now, he leads all Div I WRs with 47 receptions; he is 3rd in yardage; and he has 3 WR TDs & 2 special teams TDs.  The yardage is misleading because the two WRs (GT's Thomas and UGA's Green have both played six games to Jordan's five).  With that said, Jordan is tops in two out of three categories less than halfway into the season.  Moreover, who can argue that Jordan isn't one of the more feared punt returners in the NCAA right now?  Aside from Green, what team comes to mind with a bonafide "this team loses if this WR is shutdown" besides Texas and Shipley?  Unless there is some six-year player rule I am not aware of, Shipley AND Colt both deserve the consideration & support of the school to put both players into the PR mix.  Now while there could be a danger of a Leinhart/Bush-type splitting of the votes, I think that by Thanksgiving, it should be clearer as to which player is having a more Heisman-like season between Colt and Jordan. At that point, you have to put your chips behind the one with the better chance.  I think Colt McCoy will go down as one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the Texas Longhorns & if he picks up a notch against the rank teams he is facing over the next three weeks, then Colt should be leading the Heisman pack.  However, if Colt thinks Jordan is first option for him in the passing game, why should we as Longhorns’ fans think any less of Jordan's chance to represent us on the national stage?  I’m just sayin’….
