I guess the SEC rules...regardless.
One game against a top rated team...
--- I could puke.
Many say that Tim Brown won his trophy because of his 2 punt returns against MSU. We are all a little disappointed, but, Manti has won enough hardware to keep him busy for awhile. He has a ND degree and next year at this time he will be a millionaire. Life is good. Next stop....South Beach. Beating Bama will take the sting of the Heisman away.
Yes, but Brian Kelly was correct when he said that if Manti did not win the Heisman, it should just be regarded as an award to the best offensive player--or quarterback or running back, to be more precise. That is the case.
Please, the voters thought otherwise. 4600 yds and 43 td as a frosh! In a normal year Teo wouldn't have even been invited. Good season for him but not even in the top anything for defensive players except for tipped int's.
Johnny had the numbers. Can't deny that. Manti is still the most decorated college football player in college football history. Some of the experts have already discussed next year's Heisman and guess what.......the list included all offensive players who touch the ball at the glory positions. It is what it is. Manti was a long shot. Golic Sr has been talking up the trophy as an offensive trophy for the past couple of weeks. He's 100% correct. I'll take Golson as our QB any day, any time. I would not trade him for anybody. If we are going to use numbers as the criteria for winning the 2012 Heisman, then why wasn't Nick Florence of Baylor on stage with the trophy? He beats Johnny in every single passing and all purpose catagory. The A&M/Bama game influenced the voters and it might have been the only game or game highlight that many of the voters actually watched. On to South Beach where the important trophy awaits.
What's your story rgunner? You tolling around looking to inflame the ND crowd? I love your USE OF CAPS for emphasis! You sound like an immature teenager. Just tell us who your favorite team is
I didn't realize I was dealing with a teenager. I thought I was in a discussion with a mature adult. My bad. Parade is not my bible. With a little research I'm sure we can come up with dozens of Parade busts who went nowhere fast. It's not an exact science. It's only an opinion.
If BK is going to trade EG for anybody, it would be Nick Florence. He has much better numbers than the Heisman winner. The real fact is unless you know BK personally and he actually told you so, don't speak of what BK would do or not do. I'm still trying to find the reasoned thinking but it doesn't matter. It is what it is.
Golson is faster and more athletic than Mr. Football. He has a far stronger arm. He has tremendous potential.
Comparing statistics is misleading. For example, if Notre Dame threw the ball as often as we did during the Weis era Golson would have very impressive statistics. He threw for more than 300 yards in the first half against Wake Forest, but that's not really what we want him to do. Marcus Mariota's stats at Oregon would far surpass Football's if he wasn't taken out of the game by halftime so often because the game was already won.
BTW, I'd rather have Tajh Boyd than Football as well.
I'm not sure it is a function of Golsen...he is already very good within BK's system...
--- probably more a function that we don't have a great set of receivers like we did with Charlie...
Talent simply isn't there (not talking about Eiffert who is basically a hybrid TE).
I simply don't see anyone of the kids as playing in the NFL, or even going to the combine, like Floyd, Tate, Shark, Stovall, McKnight, etc...
--- we missed out big last year on Greenberry...it will hurt on down the road given who is coming in this year as well.
What Golsen has done in passing is more a function of the lack of outstanding WRs...not Golsen IMO
While he may or may not have been well coached in high school, Golson led his team to the state championship in South Carolina (against Jadaveon Clowney's team) and he ended his high school career having thrown the 5th most TD passes in high school history. So somebody was doing something right.
There is no question that Golson can and will improve on reading defenses, making his progressions, and all of that. But he's just a (redshirt) freshman. I'm still amazed that a freshman QB at Notre Dame, facing many of the best defenses in the country, was able to lead his team to 11 victories and only threw 5 interceptions. That's really well done.
