It's not about stats either, but I'm sure you knew that.
It wasn't really that hard to go to ESPN and look up the stats by ratings was it? Like I told Aggie, I think the Heisman is a joke, I've felt that way for years and can back it up by previous posts. But can you tell me why is Miller on the list? Yes he went undefeated but what exactly did he do throughout the season? His stats are average at best. And you can say that I am complaining that Geno isn't on the list but can you tell me exactly why he wasn't? He had 2 bad games, but so did Manziel, Lee, and Klein. And you can't say Geno's stats are inflated when both Jones and Klein have pretty much the same schedule. The Heisman is supposed to be about the best player, nowhere does it say he has to be the best player on one of the best teams. There is no reason why a 4 or 5 win team can't have the Heisman on their team if he's deserving.
As for Lee, Austin, and Bailey...what makes Lee a better WR than the other two? What did Lee do that they other 2 didn't? Lee had more yards than both but fewer TDs than both. Austin had more all-purpose yards than both.
Hope nobody gets me wrong with this, all the guys on the list are deserving, but if you look at how each player performed over the season, I'm not sure how you can say some of those listed are better than some that are not.
