    At this point, Tua is clearly front runner.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    We all saw Tua do some remarkable things last year. We most of us probably believed that Jalen was still ahead of him in game management and ball security. This might have lead us to underestimate some of the crazy stuff he was doing, or even mark him down for doing it, because elite QBs don't do crazy stuff like that.

    But it turns out that crazy is routine for Tua, it is inside his envelope. He is not working hard, putting a ball in a 1 foot window 50 yards downfield. This realization started for me against Ole Miss, an SEC foe. In my own head, trying to put this in perspective, I've run out of hyperbole. Tua's worse game is as good as the record-holder's average game, Tua's best game we probably haven't seen yet but it is already 400. This is silly. Noone is that far above the most elite of the elite, surely?

    Tua's lowest QB rating this year was 224.3 against Ole Miss.

    AJ only beat that in 4 games in 3 years of starting.

    I think we all saw the potential, but he found another gear this year. That's part of what makes it so remarkable, he was good then but this is at the top of even the highest expectations.

    To give an example, in 8 games last year his top 3 rated games were 232, 218, and 211 (and some of those were small sample sizes). This year his worst 3 performances in 6 games are 224, 225, and 235.

    To give another example though of the type of season he's having, in three seasons as a starter here's AJ's best six games: 240, 254, 341, 220, 263, and 212.
    This year Tua has gone 235, 238, 224, 225, 316, and 394. He's making the exceptional ordinary.

    Will Blackmon is a former NFL DB. Just posting this because I've seen similar comments from other NFL or former NFL players say similar things on twitter.



    For those of you who can't see it, he was asked what he thought about Tua.

    He said "Could go down as the best College Football player ever. I love his mindset. He is unreal."

    I'm just hoping he stays healthy and highly productive, both on the field and in the classroom, anything else is gravy.

    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    Has anyone had two games in a row where their first throw was a TD? Will he make it 3 this week? I put nothing past Mr. Hawaiian Punch!

    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    Anyone know anything about Tua possibly having some trouble with one or both knees? I read that he was wearing braces on both at yesterday's practice and was limping some. It did sound like he was able to practice so I assume he is ok.
