All of the Heisman talk has been centered around quarterbacks this season, which personally is a joke, and offensive to every other position on the field.
Let's call it the quarterback Heisman then or make a big deal about who the best quarterback is. I thought the Heisman was supposed to be about the best player in college football.
Meet Boston College running back, Andre Williams.
So, yesterday, Williams had 263 yards rushing against Maryland. With that effort, he became the 16th player in college football to eclipse the 2000 yard barrier, he now has 2073.
With another 200 yards in the season finale at Syracuse, he could move as high as No. 4 and maybe even No. 3 all time for a single season.
That's pretty heady stuff.
Over his last three, he's had 897 yards rushing, including 295 against New Mexico State, 339 against North Carolina State and the 263 yesterday.
And most importantly, Boston College is thriving. The Eagles have won four straight, including a win over Virginia Tech to improve to 7-4.
They won't be going to the ACC title game as Florida State has that already wrapped up.
I'm calling for a late push for Williams in the Heisman race.
Jameis Winston has off-the-field issues.
Johnny Manziel was terrible yesterday!
Marcus Mariota and Oregon got destroyed yesterday.
I urge you Heisman voters to take a look at the stats, take a look at the character and give us a real Heisman winner this year.
And the winner is....
