    They have a thread about Tua on tigerdroppings. They are begrudgingly giving their respect and saying it's hard to hate him.

    After, though I believe voters can still send in their votes before then.

    Yea I thinks that's right. Idk if it's still the case but pretty sure it used to be that most(or at least a large portion of) voters voted before Championship Game weekend.

    I wish the award was tomorrow. Not sure why I'm so nervous. I covet a Heisman-winning QB and it seems like Tua is a shoe-in. I'm worried that it's too good to be true and that the football gods are gonna take it away lol.

    I think he'll win it. And he will be the front-runner next year too

    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    Just my opinion, but for Tua to clinch the Heisman I think Alabama has to go undefeated in the regular season with Tua performing similar to his LSU game against MSU and Auburn. If Alabama loses a regular season game, he will need a big game against UGA in the SECCG to win Heisman.

    I don't buy that it is over for the Heisman because consciously and/or subconsciously people will always be looking for an alternative to giving it to a player excelling within a dynastic program. If Kyler Murray continues to put up Big-12 numbers and Alabama slips up I will almost guarantee a narrative shift towards Murray's pure stats. Think something similar to how Trent Richardson went from a slight favorite heading into November to a dog against eventual winner Robert Griffin III because of the LSU loss (where TR performed well), the sour taste from Alabama making the BCSCG despite that loss, and a late November big game by Griffin against OU that was ultimately kind of meaningless.

    People are fooling themselves if they think Tua has this clinched.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Statistically Tua had his worst outing of the season today. Yes, we all know who it was against. How do you think it impacts the heisman race, especially with Will Grier tearing it up today? I see the race tightening dramatically.

    Honestly, I stopped caring when I saw him hobble off the field. I just want him healthy enough to help you guys win out.
