    I'll play devil's advocate. Sowell had a season comparable to Leonard Fournette. Durant had a season comparable to Derrick Henry (exclude his 2 playoff game stats). The guy on a 11-1 playoff team is going to get more recognition than the guy on a 9-3 team. Who cares about Sowell's extra 100 yards when Durant has two more wins and is in the playoffs? I would say that is more valuable than 100 yards. Only one RB has won the Heisman in the past 30 years on a team with >3 losses: Ricky Williams. He definitely had a bigger impact than Sowell.

    I would argue Sowell was more Derrick Henry than Fornette, he was over 50% of my offense and I had to run him every game, people knew he was getting the ball and they still couldn't stop him, he was way more valuable than Durant is and just going by record is a shit argument if I'm being blunt. Plus Sowell was more consistent the entire year than Jaz was

    Team performance is a big factor in the Heisman. If you don't think it should be, then that's your opinion but we probably all agree that it is a big part of the real life Heisman.

     

    And let's go with Sowell being like Derrick Henry. I don't think Derrick Henry would have won the Heisman this year if he's on a 9-3 team that doesn't make the playoff.

    There are circumstances where record becomes unimportant, like when a player has an historic season, which Sowell did

    You've been saying that, but Sowell didn't have the best season ever by a running back, so what exactly is historic about it?

    If you don't count 2013, it's the highest rushing total in sim history, and even if you do it's the second highest total and the second 2,000 yard season in 2 less games than the highest total, so it is historic

    What do you mean if you don't count 2013? 2013 happened. You can't discount it. He has the second highest total, not the first. He had the second 2,000 yard season, not the first. There's nothing historic about this except in maybe in the Big Ten, and for sure in Wisconsin history. 

     

    Same could be said for Durant: maybe it was historic in the SEC, and for sure it was in Auburn history.

    If something has only been done 2 times in history the second is still historic

    Not complaining and I don't want anything to change but I'm confused and hopefully someone can explain.

     

    Wisconsin went to the Outback Bowl instead of Purdue. But Purdue and Wisconsin have the same conference record, Purdue beat Wisconsin this season, and Purdue was higher ranked in the Week 16 poll.

     

    So shouldn't Purdue have gone to the Outback Bowl?

     

    I think Wisconsin just pulled a Jaz Durant on me.

    The B1G League Office is filing a formal request to have Wisconsin removed...not only from the Conference, but from space and time altogether. The state is awful and, along with stealing bowl bids, simply produces some of the worst people the planet has known: Joseph McCarthy, Jeffrey Dahmer, SCOTT WALKER!!  It's likely this will be unsuccessful...people wouldn't like going down to 49 states, and I'm not sure that Minnesota and Michigan and Illinois can handle that much cheese by ourselves, but we're working on it.

     

    Oh...and sorry about the Outback...

    Fuck, its times like these when you meet someone that can't read that you really appreciate all you have in life. We're all cheering Texas A&M on in their battle to overcome their illiteracy, hopefully one day they win.

    Sorry - I was too busy sending all my "Matty for Heisman" failure t-shirts, to places in need.  Though with those new t-shirts they'll be able to join you in appreciating what they have in life.
