    2nd Annual Climb the Ladder MVP

    Slight change in the format this year. I have selected what I believe to be the top 8 candidates (no more than 1 per team) for the award at this time. I will update this again at least twice during the season, and then the 5 finalists will be selected prior to the bowl games. The winner will be announce prior to the BCS National Title Game.

    After the end of the regular season, every owner will have a first (5 pts), second (3 pts) and third place (1 pt) vote for the award.

    Previous Winners
    2010 - Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M

    MVP Candidates - Through week 9

    Name Team Position Year Key Stats Comments
    Daquan Bowers Clemson DE Senior 55 tackles, 27 TFL, 17 sacks Somebody likes to control the DE evidently. The stas look great, but he's a bit of a paper 'Tiger', as he's been a non-factor in user games. He had 3 tackles and a sack in loss at Colorado and 5 tackles with no sacks in loss to UNC.
    Tyler Hansen Colorado QB Senior 154-206, 2,093 yards passing, 24 TD, 8 INT Hansen is now leading the offense after missing most of last season due to injury. He had 181 yards and 3 TD in win vs Clemson, 334 yards and 3 TD in win vs Syracuse, and 352 yards and 4 TD with 4 INT in loss at Stanford.
    Marvin McNutt Iowa QB RS Senior 745 yards passing (5 TD, 4 INT), 658 yards rushing (2nd on team team), 11 rushing TD McNutt, who converted to QB from WR in the offseason, has started out great in the new Iowa triple option attack. He was playing great at TAMU (121 total yards and 2 TD) before getting injured just after the half. He had 140 total yards and a TD in big win vs USF.
    Deleon Eskridge Minnesota HB Senior 139 carries, 640 yards, 10 TD The main guy in the 'RidgeRunner' attack. He had 79 yards in a loss vs USF, 99 yards and a TD in win at Washington and 91 yards in win at Ole Miss.
    Bryn Renner North Carolina QB RS Sophomore 145-239, 2,524 yards, 26 TD, 10 INT Normally, UNC under Coach Eagles is known for their running game, but Renner has put up the big plays thus far. He had 151 yards and 4 TD in win vs Ole Miss and 183 yards and 2 TD in win vs Clemson.
    Andrew Luck Stanford QB RS Junior 168-242, 2,619 yards, 27 TD, 9 INT Luck has been just that for the Cardinal so far, leading them to a 4-0 start. He had 134 yards and 2 TD in win at Ole Miss, 380 yards and 3 TD in win vs South Carolina, 156 yards with 2 TD/INT in win vs Colorado and 179 yards and 3 TD/1 INT in win vs Washington.
    Jeff Fuller Texas A&M WR Senior 29 carries, 607 yards, 4 TD The passing game struggled early with new QB Tannehill, but Fuller has picked it up lately. He had 41 yards in win vs South Carolina, 47 yards in win vs Iowa and 139 yards and a TD in win vs Syracuse.
    Demetrius Murray USF HB RS Junior 180 carries, 890 yards, 15 TD The key runner in the Bulls attack. Had 64 yards on 14 carries with 2 TD in loss at Iowa, 112 yards and 3 TD in win at Minnesota and 146 yards and 2 TD in loss vs Washington.

    Discuss amongst yourselves.

    McNutt at QB is scary... he torched my Defense. I hope EmmDot is feeling pretty good about himself laying the wood to me then taking off for 10+ days....:mad:

    Honestly, I hope you pick up the wins. It should be Minnesota vs Iowa for the Big 10 title. It's best that way. I would go as far as to call it a rivalry....but I think I have to win a game first before we can call it that.

    Absolutely its a Rivalry! I don't play #1 Ohio State this year, again (thanks EA), so if you lose to them and beat me we could have a 3 man logjam for the title. I hope I pick up the wins but I am crossing my fingers that I don't get another guy hurt. Losing my HB sucks but luckily I have them stock loaded.

    Don't worry- the gophers always lose to penn state, wisky, iowa and michigan but those teams are still our rivals!

    Demetris Murray is actually my HB, but after BJ Daniels last game I might consider sticking Murray behind center. :D

    MVP table updated through week 9.

    One change, as TAMU's HB C. Gray was injured and is out for the year, he has been replaced by Jeff Fuller (WR).

    Right now, it seems to be a 3 horse race between QB's Tyler Hansen (Colorado), Andrew Luck (Stanford) and Bryn Renner (UNC).

    Welp you can take Renners name off this list. He is out for 8 weeks with a broken jaw.

    Ow. Damn, that's a rough loss. If I recall though, at least you have some capable young backups on your roster. I feel your pain, since my top 2 HB's have been out for the season since week 4.

    Eskridge is fading away. He had a 10 carry, 27 yard, 1 TD performance vs Iowa. I went with a spread offense look vs Emmdot to throw him off and Eskridge's performance suffered.

    That would explain no stats in our game. I didn't notice it when running through the stats. I felt like I needed to have someone from UNC in the top 5 based on your season.

    I was almost going to replace him with one of your defensive guys, since several have good numbers, like maybe your DT Quinn (wasn't he a DE at one point?) or one of your LB's. But none of them stood out enough from the pack, so I went with the WR that had the biggest numbers on your team. Again, my bad, should have looked into the injury report more.
