Woodson's Hesiman chances

Page 4 of Was at the game last night, and he is something special. I think if they find a way to go 8-3 or better and he keeps producing the way he is, I think h... 57 comments | 1439 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Thanks for the research.

    Sour grapes
    I don't think he will win it either but I wouldn't trade him. The thing I love about him is that he doesn't turn the ball over! With the athletes KY has and him not turning the ball over they will be tough to beat for most teams (LSU+probably Florida excluded) unless those teams have bad nights.

    I won't call it sour grapes because we'll probably look back in a couple months and saying that Woodson won't win the Heisman will look like an accurate bet. However, RIGHT NOW, how do you just say it's not happening plain and simple?

    The ONLY way, IMO, Woodson wins the Heisman is if UK goes undefeated...Do you see that happening?

    I'd like to nominate Buzzer Beater for the biggest hater of UK and Woodson

    And for the record, Woodson won't win the Heisman unless UK goes undefeated which I doubt will happen, but if they do and he continues and goes the whole season with no INT's, then why not?

    With all the time Brohm had to throw, I think Brohm's old man could have put up those stats.

    You're definitely seeing the world through blue glasses. Brohm is better on both counts.

    I'll give you that point. Woodson doesn't beat himself. Brohm will occasionally try to do too much ... case in point, his first-quarter interception, which came from rolling out and throwing long off his back foot into double coverage.

    Woodson generally doesn't try to do things he's not capable of doing.

    On the other hand, UK's offense asks Woodson to make safe, low-risk throws.

    WR if you think Brohm is more mobile than Woodson then I don't know what to say.

    I believe Woodson is still in the Heisman hunt. And so is Brohm. He is putting up great #s, although Woodson is ahead of Brohm right now after the win. I think both still have a chance of making it to the ceremony.

    No chance.
    Two reasons.
    SEC will mean 2-4 losses for UK.
    He plays at UK. Not enough respect.

    He gets invited to NY and that is a huge thing.
    He makes the top 10 in votes and it is an accomplishment.

    I love Woodson, but his chances are slim. He could get invited to NY as a finalist, but that would be about the best he can hope for unless UK has a MUCH better year than anyone is predicting. I am talking shot at the SEC East title kind of season. And while I bleed blue, I don't see us beating UF.

    The ESPN Draft Analyst they had on College Gameday must have on blue glasses then too, because he said the same exact thing.

    BTW, I'm not a UK football fan. Sure I want them to do well, but not really a fan.
