Probably took the job to get the girl.

That would have been my play. #longcon

Pro Tip: Evaluate the reliability of the source of information prior to learning the accuracy of the information.

Yeah, but you need to accept that such is the point of the Heisman. It's a tug-of-war between the media to determine who shaped the narrative of (read: upon whom was built the narrative of...) the college football season.

This is OK. Think about the times before widespread national broadcasts. Heisman votes were (still are) allocated regionally. The beat writers with votes might see the other regions a few times per year, but never with the consistency to truly say if someone from another region was the best. However, here's what they could say: I know the best player in my region. And guess what: so could every other person in that region. Heisman voting isn't about picking the best player, it's about developing a critical mass of votes. If a player sufficiently defines the narrative of an entire region more than any other player does in other region, they are well on their way to becoming the Heisman winner. It's an award for "the most outstanding player [as far as we can tell from here]."

If I'm Clemson, I'm developing dirty tricks to go after Arnette. It was obvious last night they he lacks discipline. Got away with two personal fouls, only called on the one. Make him do something stupid because this secondary is getting exposed when one of the DBs is off the field. So the coaching staff gets to do whatever they can to get Arnette to understand they ego and fouls are bad, and discipline and sportsmanship are good.
