WATCH: CFB analyst calls Heisman Trophy 'kinda trash' for not honoring Clemson QBs

Clemson has had generational QBs come through lately who won college football's ultimate prize.
The game's top individual award, the Heisman Trophy? Not so much.
FOX Sports' RJ Young argued this week that the longtime gridiron centerpiece honor is, well, "kinda trash."
Young lays out his top candidates to miss out on the Heisman below:
Lawrence went 34-2 as a starter with a national title and three ACC crowns in his time with the Tigers, tying Watson for the highest finish in the Heisman vote at Clemson in second and also notching an All-American honor in 2020. He exited with Clemson records in career winning percentage (.944), pass efficiency rating (164.3), yards per passing attempt (8.87) and tied for the most wins against Top 25 opponents (nine).
Watson left Clemson first in Clemson history in career completion percentage (.674), passing efficiency (157.5) and total offense per game (318.3) and third in ACC history in total offense (12,094).
Watson was a two-time winner of the Manning Award for the nation's top quarterback, which is awarded after the postseason, while Lawrence was a three-time finalist for the honor.
