Montee couldn't even get the most votes for a RB with rushing receiving and 39 Touchdowns. Taylor will have to put up better stats than an average back, but he won't have to do something completely insane.
You should win the B1G West with one loss or less, so it's just a matter of whether you can beat the East champs. Then you're likely in the playoff. If you make the playoff, he instantly has a great chance. An Alabama RB wouldn't have beaten Mariota that year. You're living in fantasy land if you think that. I don't think people would even bother voting if a Bama running back had yards from scrimmage and 32 TDs.
Melvin "sucked" against exactly 1 opponent and it was against 8 men in the box every play against the eventual national champs while his QB went with 3 picks and a QBR of 3. That year he happened to play 3 other top 25 rushing defenses and put up the following stat lines. If you wanna say he sucked against Ohio state.. He murdered everyone except Ohio state.
Depends on who else is in consideration. Montee lost his last game and was against mariota whis is pretty hard to beat. You should be pumped. Hes gonna be great but can't live up to hype. Incoming disappointed bama fans. I mean to be entirely honest, most reasonable Bama fans have been realistic with their expectations. By that I mean they are excited to see what he can do over a full season, but smart enough to realize it would be very difficult for a QB to put up Heisman worthy numbers in Bama's typical offense.
He won them the championship, but statistically it was good but not OMG incredible. The stats aren't why it's seen as a good performance FWIW. The majority of his incompletions were downfield or tough throws.
Just off this tape of all his throws against Georgia;. Looks like he thought he'd continue the route. Slightly overthrown but it also looks like the corner did a good job keeping him from getting there.
Little high, through receivers hands and bobbled out of bounds. Could make an argument for being forced but it's also a tight window with the safety behind the receiver. Somewhere in here there's the interception that he forced on a run play.
I think there's another pass play because the PI shouldn't count. Coker only had 23 but we leaned heavily on Henry. Blake Sims on the other hand had more free reign and put up I mean, a lot of QB's have passes that are dropped, called for PI, thrown out of bounds, etc. I'm very interested to see how Tua does in The Heisman doesn't go to the best player but a good QB or sometimes runningback on a top team, he has being a QB and Being on a top team part already locked down.
And winning a National Championship. Doesnt really matter if he isnt the best. He's got team, position, and accomplishment. I still contend that taking Rodney Anderson to at least sell the bet later in the season is a good choice.
Though idk if that is something that can be done through Bovada. Rodney is a beast. It was so cool, except in the Rose Bowl, to see the way he finished the season after his injuries. But I think the depth at RB on the team would hurt him here. I doubt the incoming frosh sees the field. Jul 2, This topic has been archived - replies are not allowed.
