He was also dead last in the top 10 for total yards per play from scrimmage. He did have the highest TD total in the top 10 by 5 I believe over Zeke and I think it was Fournette. It is what it is obviously, but the Heisman is just a complete who gives a shit at this point.
As for this year that Stanford dude, and Mayfield should be the front runners in my opinion. Mayfield can't help that his defense sucks, but he still puts up the numbers he needs to.
Henry also routinely had to make something out of nothing behind an offensive line that gave up more negative plays than most any team in the country (and may have been dead last, but I can't remember). His yards after contact were unreal, as was his ability to stay healthy all year despite taking on a humongous workload while actually getting better the more carries he got.
Love should be the front runner. I'd give Mayfield more of a tip of the hat if he hadn't been partially responsible for the Iowa State loss. Sometimes his backyard football antics are drive-killers. If voters cared all that much about QB's not doubling as fixes for shitty defensive efforts, Lamar wouldn't have won last year.

That sounds about right. Either a mentally ill homeless person (of which there are many in the area), or some overenthusiatic Baker 13 participant.
Think you're the only other person I've seen on GAF that's a Rice alumnus lol 👋🏾
