Many commentators use our two losses as evidence as to why JFF shouldn't win the Heisman this year, but here's a breakdown of all the winners on teams with worse records than our 2012 Ags.
2011: RGIII (9-3)
2007: Tim Tebow-Florida (9-3)
1998: Ricky Williams--UT (8-3)
1987: Tim Brown--Notre Dame (8-3)
1980: George Rogers--South Carolina (8-3)
1970: Jim Plunkett--Stanford (8-3)
1969: Steve Owens--OU (6-4)
1965: Mike Garrett--USC (7-2-1)
1961: Ernie Davis--Syracuse (7-3)
1956: Paul Hornung--Notre Dame (2-8)
1950: Vic Janowicz--Ohio St (6-3)
1939: Nile Kinnick--Iowa (6-1-1)
1937: Clint Frank--Yale (6-1-1)
I don't think it's the 2 losses anyone's questioning. It's more the fact that alot of voters don't want to vote for a freshman.
That's honestly not as many as I expected. Ricky, tebow and RGIII are all the proof you need tho.
Maybe posting's just not your game. I know, let's have a spelling contest.
Playing devils advocate here I think the one takeaway between JFF and Robert Griffin is even in his 3 losses Griffin put up multiple touchdowns. Between LSU and Florida I think JFG only had 1 rushing touchdown. Aside from that yardage is pretty comparable with a slight edge to JFF.
I think Herbie has answered that emphatically. Don't hold him back back because he's a freshman.
