    Tua's Heisman Campaign watch

    Did Tua help or hurt his Heisman Campaign Saturday? Looked pretty good out there. Just wondering if he will get the numbers needed to win it.

    I think Tua right now is going to compete against will Grier.

    Really all Tua needs to do is just keep being himself and being the best QB he can be. He does that and the Heisman is probably his imo.

    Tua will win the Heisman IF he is given enough playing time. My concern would be that coach pulls him too early in games before he can put up the big numbers needed.

    If he and Jalen both play in most games, Tua may not have the numbers this year for Heisman--next year he will definitely be a candidate if he stays healthy.

    I would rather him lead BAMA to another National Championship this year if it was one or the other. He does need to stay humble and tune out all the good noise about him from the media. I think he will do just that.

    This is my thought as well. His numbers will be good, but he may not play very much into the 2nd half of games. I think he may only get a couple of drives in the 2nd half this coming week if the game goes like I think it will.

    There's no doubt he'll be in the race. It might hurt him in getting pulled in blowout wins. But, hopefully the voters will take note of that.

    BTW, a Bama player winning the Heisman is good for the team...especially the extra attention that is brought in and it certainly helps with future recruiting.

    If Tua wins the Heisman, can you imagine that level of interest we will start getting from the best QB prospects in the nation. It's the one position we haven't been able to sign under CNS consistently...but this could change all that.

    I think What Tua needs to do is focus on what he can control and that's to play well, run the offense as he's being told to. Heisman will take care of itself. The schedule we have this year.. he just need to have a heck of a game against Ole miss, TAMU, Auburn and LSU and he might be in talk for the trophy.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    His numbers are fine and he's right on schedule to be in the race. I mean he barely played half the game and is still on pace to break the Total Yardage and TD records...lol

    We'll have plenty of games for him to play 3+ quarters once SEC play starts.

    I especially look for Game 3 against Ole Miss to be a competitive shootout. Their Offense is legit too.... I can easily see Tua playing that whole game and going 'Madden on them with 450-500+ Yards and 5+ TD's.

    He'll go off on Texas A&M and Missouri soon too....

    I remember some years ago Ingram and Richardson were having a good year and all the talk for the week leading up to the South Carolina game was what their nicknames would be, Salt/Pepper, Fast/Furious, etc. I remember Bama getting blown out too, the score never reflected the true domination or total lack of focus from the Bama side. I'll tell you one thing, didn't hear any talk about nicknames after that game and hence why I'm not liking Heisman talk THIS EARLY in the year. Its just another form of Rat Poison to me...
