I got invited earlier this summer to take part in our friend Kyle Kensing's "Detmer Award" over at Saturday Blitz. What exactly is the "Detmer Award"? Here is how he describes it:

The five non-BCS conferences and 75 percent of the independents are differentiated from the Big Six in virtually every other facet, so it only makes sense the best players from this subdivision-subdivision have an award for its best player. Just as fitting is for this honor to bear the name of the last player from one of these universities to win college football’s top honor, 1990 Heisman winner and BYU quarterback Ty Detmer. SaturdayBlitz.com will track this completely exclusive field’s progress throughout the season.

We are honored to be asked to vote on this award alongside such great bloggers like Patrick Johnson from Big East Coast Bias, the guys from the Upset Blog, the Navy Bird Dog, and Kevin McGuire of the National Football Examiner (and virtually every other college football blog on the internet) among others. Here is my ballot for last week. Here is what the group came up with for week seven as well as cumulative results. Kellen Moore retook his lead in the overall voting this week with his performance against Colorado State.

Here is my week seven ballot based on game performance and remember, this is a week by week voting. We are not voting on their cumulative play for the entire season. Points are given each week and the one with the most points at the end of the year will get the award. Feel free to chime in with who you would have voted for based on last weeks performance...


#1 Chandler Harnish, QB, NIU- led the Huskies to win over a good Western Michigan team by the score of 51 to 22. Harnish threw for 203 yards and ran for 229 yards on just 14 carries.
#2 Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State- led the Broncos to a 63-13 route of Colorado State in their first MWC game. Moore only had 4 incompletions as he went 26 of 30 for 338 yards and 4 TDs.

#3 J.J. McDermott, QB, SMU- SMU went to 5-1 (3-0 in C-USA) and gave UCF their third loss of the season in the process. J.J. was the key as he took to the air for 358 yards and 2 TD.

#4 Blaine Gautier, QB, Louisiana- Gautier led Mark Hudspeth's UL Ragin Cajun's to a 20 point victory over North Texas and a 6-1 record (4-0 in the Sun Belt). Gautier 14 of 20 for 238 and 4 TDs.

#5 Ronnie Hillman, RB, San Diego State- Ran for 172 yards and 2 TD in the Aztecs 41-27 win over the Falcons of Air Force.
