Did the Heisman Voters Get It Right?
Early in the season, nothing seem to stop Alabama sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on his advance toward the Heisman Trophy.
Beginning in November, the Tide saw the best defensive teams on their schedule including LSU, Mississippi State and Georgia.
Meanwhile, Texas A&M transfer Kyler Murray carried the Oklahoma Sooners to the Big XII title and a College Football Playoff berth by tossing for over 300 yards in five of his last six starts this season.
On Saturday, Murray won the Heisman Trophy by 296 votes over Tagovailoa as the two prepare for the Orange Bowl on December 29 in Miami Gardens, Florida.
To open up this week's edition of The Blitz, former Alabama fullback Martin Houston posed two questions to his audience concerning whether the Heisman Trophy voters were spot on in their final votes and whether Tagovailoa had too good of a season to win college football's top individual award.
The former Crimson Tide fullback along with various callers analyzed numerous factors going into the decision including Jalen Hurts' playing time in the crimson and white, Oklahoma's dependence on Kyler Murray to win, the outdated nature of the voting process and how media coverage affects the voters.
