College football fans react to Alabama WR Jameson Williams losing out on Biletnikoff Award
Alabama’s Jameson Williams figured to be a favorite to win the 2021 Fred Biletnikoff Award, given by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation to the nation’s the college football season’s outstanding FBS receiver regardless of position.
Williams transferred to Alabama from Ohio State prior to the 2021 season and developed into Bryce Young’s favorite target. While he totaled 1,445 yards and 15 touchdowns with the Crimson Tide, much of that production came during the last 6 games of the season. In that timeframe, he has made 39 catches for 858 yards and 9 touchdowns. In the SEC Championship Game against Georgia, he made 7 catches for 184 yards and 2 touchdowns.
However, that wasn’t enough to see Williams become the 4th Tide WR and 2nd in a row to win the award. Instead, it went to Pitt’s Jordan Addison.
As you might expect, that led to plenty of reaction toward the award’s foundation on social media. Even Williams himself expressed puzzlement that he had been passed over:
Here’s more reaction on Twitter:
