The moment when Robert Griffin III stepped to the podium Saturday night to receive the Heisman Trophy, greeted by a contingent of past winners, the Baylor quarterback automatically became eligible for membership in another sort of club. Not that he wants to join it. No player does. It is the society of Heisman flops. Scroll down the long and prominent list — Pat Sullivan, Jason White, Eric Crouch, et al. — of men who stood on college football's highest pedestal only to crash and burn as pros.

OPINION: With 15 starters returning courtesy of Ron Vanderlinden and seven home games on his schedule, including one against mighty Troy State, Ralph Friedgen is set up to look real good in his first season as Maryland's football coach. Fact: Not to sound a discordant note, but the Ravens have one win in three tries against teams with winning records this season. (They're 4-4 against teams that are .500 or better.) Opinion: Oklahoma's Josh Heupel got my Heisman Trophy vote ahead of the winner, Florida State's Chris Weinke - not because Weinke is 28, but because Heupel played a much tougher schedule and showed tremendous leadership in leading the Sooners to a 12-0 season.

After being drafted in the fifth round by the Ravens last weekend, Troy Smith knows he has to quiet the critics who say he won't make it as a pro quarterback. When his NFL career informally began yesterday at the team's rookie minicamp, Smith learned of another hurdle to overcome - history. Few Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks survive in the NFL, much less thrive. Such flops as Danny Wuerffel (1996), Chris Weinke (2000), Eric Crouch (2001) and Jason White (2003) - all of whom are out of the league - have proved that the best player in college football often struggles at the next level.

COLLEGE PARK -- When LaMont Jordan steps on the field Saturday to run the football against Florida State, he will carry a powerful secret weapon.It will be an image of the Byrd Stadium scoreboard flashing this final score: Maryland 28, Florida State 14.That's right.Jordan has already seen that 28-14 score posted at Byrd Stadium, and he can't get it out of his mind."It sent chills through my body," said the shifty tailback of the scene last December during a recruiting weekend. "I was with a recruit and walking through the stadium when I saw it."

CHRIS Weinke, the grand old man of college football, will return to Florida State University for his senior year at age 28. Mature students are said to be the best. Mr. Weinke's place in the legend of sport is secure. He spurned higher education in pursuit of a baseball career, only to remain mired in the minor leagues. And so he went off to college and football -- too old for such a career change, according to conventional wisdom. He threw Florida State to the national championship this season over the best efforts of an upstart Virginia Tech team.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Virginia athletic director Terry Holland said yesterday that there is no truth to widespread media reports that Florida State offensive coordinator Mark Richt has been offered the Cavaliers' head coaching position. Holland said all candidates are still being evaluated equally. By early January, Holland hopes to name a successor to George Welsh, who announced Dec. 11 that he is retiring. Sources said Saturday night that Richt, who helped develop Heisman Trophy quarterbacks Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke, had been offered the job. Richt, 40, whose Seminoles face top-ranked Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3, did not return phone messages.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Defensive end Jamal Reynolds has the talent to follow Peter Boulware, Reinard Wilson and Andre Wadsworth into the NFL. But it won't happen until 2001 because Florida State's sack leader said he will return for his senior season.Reynolds said he never seriously considered leaving FSU after this season for the NFL although his coaches and some teammates had privately expressed concern. He had seven sacks and 11 tackles for losses during the regular season."I'm not thinking about leaving," he said.
