Will he? Probably not. Could he? Oh hell yes.
He'll be a sexy "Dark Horse" candidate next year and in my opinion won't live up to the hype just yet. By his JR year I'd make a wager that he's on a lot of people's short list. It is pretty hard to predict if anyone can win that award so early but given his tool and Meyer's offense, he'll have a chance.
Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would be more obvious.
He could win it someday. But whether he'll actually win it is something else entirely. Any starting QB/RB from a traditional power like OSU, Texas, Bama, Mich, etc has a chance to win it. What happens after that is up to the coaching staff, offensive playcalling, the players' natural ability, dedication, leadership, luck, etc.
I hate these types of questions because they saddle him with crazy high expectations from the fan-base and if he falls short no matter how well he does otherwise we'll be let down.
That said, I voted yes LOL because of Urban's track record with QBs, combined with the raw talent he displayed while shackled with Walrusball
Tom Herman will be his coach, and he seems like a smart guy, so I'm sure that improves Braxton's chances a little. Let's also hope Braxton can stay healthy. Those big time O Line recruits would certainly help! :-)
Each year that goes by the less I respect the Heisman. Nissan had a vote and used it on the person the fans voted for the most. I know it's only 1 vote, but still ridiculous. At least Nissan sees it for what it is, a popularity contest.
Californian by birth, Marionaire by the Grace of President Warren G. Harding.
He will probably need to do what Troy Smith did: go undefeated or be seen as the leader of a national contender. Absent that, I doubt he can win the Heisman. The only recent exceptions among quarterbacks either had insane numbers plus the cachet of turning a program around (Griffin) or supernatural cultural status (Tebow).
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
ZOMG WHO SAID NO.
Class of 2008
Yeah, 4 reels.
The question is "could". If you are voting "no" then you think it is impossible for Braxton to win. I am interested in hearing why, under no circumstances, could Braxton ever win.
I'm sorry for not being sorry.
