    I think he "won" the Heisman with the TD pass in the national championship game. That was so big that it carried over to this season. So he already started with such high praise. Just listen to Kirk and Fowler during the game. They LOVE him.
    It really depends on where WVU is. If they are 13-0 then Im going to say Will Grier gets it over Tua unless Tua breaks some serious records.

    WVU has a history of choking in seasons where they are in the National conversation. I expect them to lose to both TCU and Oklahaoma and someone they have no business losing to and finish 9-3.

    Tua will have comparable gaudy numbers against much tougher competition and we will most likely be 13-0. That should be enough to take Grier out of it and especially if bad play on his part plays a role in 2-3 losses.

    Feel free to discuss what you want, but I'm a bit less superstitious.
    So, we may have to agree to disagree, but I think in 2010 the players did listen to all the hype, it was ALL over social media and ESPN talking heads went on and on about it. So yes, I do think it affected the players. I may be wrong, but I don't think so. If all you hear is how great you are, one tends to get an ego problem....

    What you think about Tua now?
    I wouldn't bet $300 on this if I were you!!!!

    As to what I think about Tua? I think our O stank last year, its not the kind of football I like to see. Told my buddies at halftime of game against GA if Tua starts second half, we have a chance... I wanted a "different" style of O last year about mid season...

    Yes, the guys were clearly focused in that game which just goes to prove my point about rat poison heisman talk...

    I love that game BTW.

    I really hope some of you don't use the phrase "rat poison" in everyday life like you do when it comes to talking Alabama football.

    I don't, trust me. Some things are only worth it for major items... In work, things are "nit noise"...

    the best player on the best team usually wins the heisman unless the best teams dont have a standout, dominant best player. Tua has a much better shot to win a heisman right now than Ingram did at this point in the year. He's definitely the most likely player in the SEC based on that criteria. I think we'll have a lot better idea in 3 or 4 weeks though.

    I think he likely gets an invite. But it's going to be hard to put up the numbers needed if he is going to be taken out of the game so early. If our defense has some struggles then he will have a better chance.

    I will have to respectfully disagree with this. We have been getting one of the top QBs in the country every year. Rankings and ratings dont always pan out. But Bama has not failed to sign the best of the best QB prospects for several years.

    I am not stupersticious or anything but I always hold my breath when I see threads like this. The kid has been a phenom since he stepped on campus and finally we get to see him light it up. But dude is only one game into his career as a starter and he has already missed some time this year due to an injury. He plays with reckless abandon which I love but man, seeing him lie flat on his back right after his first touchdown pass Saturday night had me pacing. Let us all pray that the young man makes it through the season unscathed because he will be targeted all season.

    despite being pulled i think he can still have the numbers. We have WR's streaking all over the field and Tua is able to get it to them. He will have several games where he has 3 td's at halftime.
