Dec 10 2019HEISMAN HYPE
John Heisman coached football at Buchtel College, and beat Ohio State. Just wanted to point that out. Anyway, the Heisman Trophy is the most overblown pile of hooey in sports, but still we kinda follow it. Baker Mayfield won it, of course, and Kyler Murray won it last year. Now they face each other Sunday. There are four finalists this year, but they could save us all a lot of time and just give the Trophy to LSU's Joey Burrow. Amazing. He was Ohio's Mr. Football at Athens High School. and wanted to go to Nebraska, where his family is from. But the Huskers didn't want him. At Ohio State, he sat the bench three years and threw 29 passes TOTAL. Then it was off to LSU, and great success. A Heisman, and maybe the #1 draft pick in April. Truly a Cinderella story. Will he get a national title, too?
