Watch List Watch: Grothe on Manning list
Add another entry to the Watch List Watch List: USF sophomore quarterback Matt Grothe is one of 35 passers named to the watch list of the Manning Award, given to college football's top quarterback.
Grothe is one of three Big East quarterbacks on the list, with Louisville's Brian Brohm and West Virginia's Pat White. He's identified as "Groethe" on the award's official site, and Florida sophomore Tim Tebow is the only other candidate from a Florida school.
Again, to update the list: Grothe's also on the Maxwell Award list, linebacker Ben Moffitt is on the Nagurski list, and cornerback Trae Williams is on the Thorpe list.
