Arkansas' Sebastian Tretola now a sleeper Heisman candidate

Arkansas guard Sebastian Tretola -- all 350 pounds of him -- threw a touchdown pass on a fake field goal last Saturday against UAB, and like any forward-thinking school these days, Arkansas is milking that "fat-guy touchdown" for all its worth.

The school has produced a video touting Tretola for the Heisman, and the video is tremendous, especially a wide receiver expressing mock outrage he was not the recipient of Tretola's pass.

Tretola is a starter for the Razorbacks after transferring in from junior college. He and the Razorbacks play at top-ranked Mississippi State this week. It's doubtful he gets another shot at throwing a pass, but if nothing else, he will be the most closely scrutinized offensive lineman on field-goal attempts in the nation going forward.
