2LiveDrew Shaking up the Heisman Race (Updated)

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

[UPDATED 5:44 pm EST]DO getting serious Heisman hype from one of the reporters in Bay Area:

Now that Halloween has passed, though, it's free game. And with that in mind, I have my guy for the stiff-arm statue.

Here's a hint: He's completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 2,167 yards, 23 touchdowns and three interceptions while leading his team to an undefeated record.

Here's another hint: He plays in Los Angeles and is not named Matt Leinart.

Give up? It's UCLA quarterback Drew Olson.

That's right, the Piedmont High graduate, who nearly lost his starting job before this season after undergoing major knee surgery and now has the 8-0 Bruins, remarkably, in the race for the national championship, should be the front-runner for the Heisman.
We are going to see more of this if we keep winning. It is all about Arizona for the 2LIVEDREW.

Okay enough talking about Peetie's Carroll's marry band of (alleged) criminals. I feel dirty just talking about those thugs from that (joke of a) "university".  Looks like MSM is starting to accept the notion that UCLA has not one, but 2 top-5 contendahs in this year's Heisman race.  Drew Olson rockets into CBS Sportsline's top-5:
Drew Olson has thrusted himself into the Heisman race after another guiding UCLA to another comeback victory. Olson, who is a big reason UCLA is still unbeaten, now has 13 touchdowns and only one interceptions in his past three games and is ranked fifth in the nation in passing efficiency.
While the other half of our 2LiveDrew monster is staying put in ESPN's top-5.

Let's hope these guys are not waiting around till the second half to get going this Saturday.  They need to explode out of the gate.  Once concern right now is our offensive line, which has been affected by the absence of center McCloskey .  Well no turning back right now.  Chai who is moving into the C position, needs to step, and if he can't get it done, Cable needs to plug in RS frosh Meyer. Whatever it takes.  We must beat Arizona yesterday and keep the dreams alive. GO BRUINS.
