I think the difference between zeke and cam is that, for zeke that was a one time outburst that he apologized for afterwards. With cam, he seems to have a history of being immature/cocky. So this is just one more thing for people to point to and say he is immature. Not to mention cam is about 5-6 years older then zeke too.
Peyton manning is a winner and people seem to like him.
I would guess the reasoning for this would be that in most of his games he was successful because he ran the ball. He didn't have to many games where he really was passing the ball all over the field expect maybe Rutgers. I would assume they are looking at qb's that were throwing the ball all over the field this past year.
This list seems pretty accurate, you could probably flip flop either JT or mayfield at two and three depending on who you are a fan of. One thing I noticed the other day when I was looking back at the stats from the fiesta bowl was that they ended up giving kizer a higher qbr then JT after the game. I believe JT had a qbr of 50 where kizer had a 60 I believe. I mean I know it wasn't JT's best game but I thought he would have had a higher rating then kizer would.
After getting snubbed this year, I can't see mccaffrey not winning it. If it's even a close vote you can probably expect him to get the votes.
I sure hope so, with urban there is always a chance!
You might want to temper your expectations a bit for next year. Next year's schedule is tougher then this year's not to mention osu is replacing 8 starters around JT 3 of which could be potential 1st rounders (decker, zeke, and thomas). Expecting beck to get JT back to where he was in 2014 (which was nearly perfect for him) while breaking in 8 starters with a very tough schedule just doesn't seem reasonable to me.
Not to mention ND was healthy when they played Clemson not so much when they played osu
I was just about to mention him. This season would have been very bad without a good left tackle to go along with our right tackle struggling
I think it's obvious that cardale was kinda screwed looking back at the season. He started off the season with most fans wanting JT to be quaterback, and not happy about cardale being quaterback. He clearly had a shorter leash then JT there is no doubt about that. if cardale wasn't playing well he would put in jt, if JT wasn't playing well they stuck with JT.
Can you imagine if cardale would have been the starting quaterback for the MSU game and those and they lost the same way? People would have gone insane that cardale was starting and not JT, but that really wasn't mentioned because JT was the quaterback that game. Let's not even talk about how people would have reacted if cardale was the one that got the ovi. One of the worst things to me was that cardale didn't get any snaps in the bowl or UM game.
That being said I do think JT was the right choice to be the quaterback. There just was no protection and with jt in there they had to account for him and ZEKE whereas with cardale they really only accounted for zeke.
I'll go out on a limb and say Austin mack on offense and Dante booker on defense
I don't care for either team and I'll say that was an awful call
No Troy smith yet? How is that even possible? He's the wolverine slayer. He was as clutch as they come!
The heisman is all about how you do on the big stage. You can put up incredible needs all season long then tank in the big game and you will be out of the race. If you do well in the big game that's when your stats become important. They pretty much become evidence for your dominance.
Comes with bad intentions each play, but really needs to wrap up on tackles.
Guy had offers from Ivy League schools including Harvard. Yeah it sounds like he'd be a real slacker
I'm sure his coaches teach to wrap up, just like they teach in rugby tackling. The main difference is that rugby tackling teaches to put your head behind the ball carrier instead of in front.
It took 2 min into his film but Wint finally wrapped up on a tackle. The guy has it all from an athleticism aspect but definitely won't be playing defense unless he learns to wrap somebody up.
I agree with what you're saying about woody but that was during an era of the big 2 little 8, you didn't have to play a conference championship, and multiple teams were named national champions at times. I think its hard to compare these two because these are completely different times.
Some players are active on social media, some like to play Xbox, others are playing poker. The only reason people are mad about Cardale being on Twitter is because they can see it. They don't know when players are playing xbox or poker but they can follow cardale and be upset that cardale isn't spending 100 hours a week in the film room. Because you know the 30 seconds he took to send that tweet he could be spent working out or in he film room and that's obviously holding him back.
That only works if your quaterback is throwing the ball and not just tucking it and running even when there are 3 receivers open.
Yeah I was at the game and the crowd just seemed stunned at the end. A few drunk people seemed pretty pissed screaming and yelling, but overall just stunned.
Here are some raw number's for you:
jt vs good defenses: Penn st, mich st, minny, TTUN
cardale vs good defense: bama, wisky, and Oregon
cardale threw two interceptions in 3 games and one wasn't even his fault. Although I will give you cardale did have a problem with a few fumbles during those games. But it boils down to if you think cardale was average during that run you must think the same of JT during those few games.
All Cardale has to do is put together one drive for a touchdown and they win that game! One drive, and I don't think its to crazy to think he could have done that.
I can't upvote this post enough! You said exactly what I was thinking!
