Let's talk about the Heisman.

Not this year's, next year's.

What kind of odds could you get picking Minnesota back David Cobb?

He's a 1,000-plus rusher this year and should compile a ton of yardage next fall.

Minnesota was decent this season but should improve quite a bit in 2014. Winning football games counts in the Heisman polling and maybe the Gophers can go 9-3 next fall, perhaps better with some breaks.

Cobb would probably need to gallop past the 1,700 yard mark to get the voter's interest in a quarterback-heavy candidate list.

No, he won't be close to the favorite list in August. But a few big-stat games in September can get things rolling, and then Cobb leading Minnesota to some crucial Big Ten wins can steamroll things further.
