Jimbo Fisher calls Heisman hopefuls "show dogs."

FSU head football coach Jimbo Fisher has a possible Heisman Trophy candidate on his hands with Seminole starting quarterback E.J. Manuel. That don't expect you can Fisher to orchestrate a massive Heisman campaign like the one centered around former FSU QB Christian Ponder. It seems that he has either moved on from such bawdy schemes, or  wasn't too crazy about them in the first place.

In a recent interview, Fisher has a term for Heisman hopefuls - he called them 'show dogs.'

''Like I say, that's for show dogs,'' Fisher said in response to a question at his weekly media availability. ''If you want to parade him around and do all that, I'd rather have a hunting dog.

''When I let him out that truck, he's ready to go,'' Fisher said. ''I think that's what he is and I think he understands that. He's mature enough to understand that.''

Hopefully Manuel is mature enough to be called a 'hunting dog.' Otherwise there are gonna be some very awkward moments down in Tallahassee.
