    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    I think that the Heisman voters are sophisticated enough to know that Tua's numbers are going to come in less playing time than some others. If they want to use numbers as a justification to vote for someone else, they will and nobody can stop them from doing it.

    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    Here's a couple of stats to look for. Alabama single season passing record for TDs is AJ at 30 (Heisman runner-up) and 3,487 yards by Blake Sims. Right now, Tua is on pace to have 3,099 yards and 36 TDs in 12 games. The competition will get tougher, but he should also get more playing time as that occurs. This sets Tua up to be breaking Alabama records in the SECCG for example.

    Anyway, if people want to talk stats, I see those as significant. This is the school that had Namath and Stabler, along with a slew of QBs who got Heisman votes (AJ, Gilmer, Lewis, Trammel, Davis, Barker and Sloan). If he has what could definitively be the best season from an Alabama quarterback ever, I think that will go a long way.

    Edit: I'll put this here to https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ns/1413507002/

    Is Tua a Heisman lock?

    Because it sure seems that way right now.

    I think he and the rest of the team just need to stay healthy.

    Through 4 games Tua leads the nation in both Pass Efficiency Rating and Total QB Rating so he should be the favorite.

    Re: Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    Based upon the USA today article Krazy linked, he wins in a landslide if he keeps doing what he's doing.

    And, I honestly think his passing yards per game will go up and his completion percentage might come down slightly when we get to the meat of our schedule, but better competition. I suspect he'll get more throws/minutes against St., LSU and Auburn. He'll eventually throw a few picks, but his TD numbers could go up with more minutes.

    Heisman talk this early is rat poison. Let's just play the games.

    It is not rat poison for me as a fan unless I am impacting the team through my thoughts somehow. On second thought, maybe you are correct. Well, no. 😂😂😂 These comments actually make me laugh out loud!

    TUA FOR HEISMAN!!!!! Roll Tide!!!!!!

    Will y'all drop the 'rat poison' and 'too early to talk about it' bits? If people want to discuss it, it's not an issue. he thread is eight pages long already as people find it interesting, and as far as I know not a single current player is a member here.

    But Nick Saban said this is rat poison. Plus, at Alabama we don't win Heismans; we win Championships!

    if my thoughts on bama football in any way had an impact on the performance of the team and/or players we would have had national championships with dubose, fran, and shula.
