This Week's Poll
Former Vice President Cheney argues that torture saved American lives by prying pivotal information from terrorists. Several top level operatives and politicians emphatically disagree. What do you think about torture as an instrument of American policy? Please check the response that most closely reflects your feelings.

Please select one:
1. America should never stoop to torture. Torture is what people like Hitler and Stalin did. We should not cede the high moral ground. Cheney is way off base.
2. No opinion.
3. America should do whatever it takes to keep its combatants and citizens safe. If that means torture, torture it should be. This is not a perfect world.

Heisman thoughts: Coleman deserved better than 7th
Here are 10 players who crossed my Heisman Trophy radar but didn't make my top three:

Tevin Coleman (RB, Indiana)

IU hadn't had a 1,000-yard rusher since Levron Williams in 2001. Coleman ran for over 2,000 yards, a new IU record. Anthony Thompson ran for 1,793 yards in 1989 when he finished second in the Heisman race, becoming the closest an IU player has ever gotten to the award. He finished seventh in the voting and deserved better.
