I haven’t actually. This isn’t a team award. What the hell is so hard to understand about that? If that mattered then Watson should have won the award instead of Henry in 2015 that lost to Ol’ Miss. Kyler had 400 yards of offense and 4 touchdowns in that loss by a last second field goal, OUs terrible defense gave up.
Totally agree, if Kyler could trade in the Heisman for a national championship, he’d do it in a second. The point of all this is, that almost everyone has just handed the trophy to Tua, and he’s more than deserving, but it’s way closer than anyone in the SEC wants to admit.
Oklahoma has played 5 SEC teams since 2014, went 4-1 and scored 193 points. Three of those teams were Alabama, Auburn and Georgia. Let’s not act like Kyler wouldn’t have put up the same numbers against any of the teams Alabama has played.
Kyler also has more rushing yards than Bama’s top rusher. Convenient that gets left out.
I’d love to see the Alabama math where you got 40%(!). Lmao. The equalizer is passing attempts, which are nearly equal. The last Alabama Heisman winner lostmto Ol’ Miss, let’s not act like a team loss with a historically bad defense is real debate fodder. You’re all digging a little too far into the pockets for these garbage justifications.
What’s cute is most Bama fans are trying to push the narrative that if you take out the fourth quarter Tua is miles away. Yet, somehow, Kyler still has better stats, and more rushing yards than Bama’s Lead RB.
