This week on the Heisman watch we look at Cole McDonald, a tall athletic quarterback from Hawaii who has all the tools to be a great Quarterback at the next level and has the numbers to be a legit Heisman Canadite. Through the first six weeks of the college football season, Cole McDonald already has 24 touchdowns and just two interceptions on 240 pass attempts. If he keeps up this pace, he will have 4,500 yards and 52 passing touchdowns, along with 488 rushing yards with 5 more scores on the ground. He is one of the most gifted Quarterbacks we have seen playing at his level in almost a decade. If he can continue to produce at a high level watch out for this kid in the future. #HeismanWatch

Hall was drafted in the second round of the 2018 draft by the Oakland Raiders with the 57th overall pick. Throughout his college career, he has amassed some very surprising numbers for a Defensive Tackle. Hall holds the FCS record with the most career tackles for loss, has 4 interceptions and 29 pass breakups, he also amassed 37 sacks in his college career. His stats are eerily similar to only one NFL Defensive Lineman, Cameron Jordan. These players are very similar in build and play style, they can both get after the Quarterback but also occasionally drop back into coverage on specific defensive schemes and packages. At the 57th pick, the Raiders got a steal by selecting Hall.
The (14) SFA Lumberjacks are facing the (3) Texas Tech Red Raiders today in the first round of March Madness tournament. SFA is the most intriguing team in the tournament, they have won 10 or their last 11 games and also lead the nation in steals, they have 7 players who average at least one steal per game. In their regular season, SFA went 28 and 6 and beat LSU early on in the season. They rank eighth in the country for overall defensive efficiency and average 81 points per game. They will have a shot today at Texas Tech who has been an up and down team this year. I’m looking forward to an interesting game with a possible upset.
Prediction: SFA: 73 Texas Tech: 72
Oregon will have some trouble moving the ball against their Pac-12 rivals tonight. Over the past few years Stanford has had Oregons number when it comes to moving the Ball on offense, and it wont be much different tonight.
