This has to be fake, right?

May 12, 2020, 11:02 AM

I have a friend who posted this on Facebook. I wasn’t alive during this time, but was he really considered a Heisman Canidate?

He was, early on, in the mix.

It didn't last.

But they still touted him as viable candidate even after the Coot faithful saw that his favorite receivers were on the opposing team's defenses.

I remember most of us here at the time scratching our heads as to why they kept pushing him as a possible winner when his performance was not even close to a Heisman.

Just like every year, there are about 20-30 candidates.

that also included 30 or 40 other players.

Was Toad ever a legitimate Heisman candidate? Absolutely not !!!

Since his QB career didn’t go so good, at least he has a voice for radio. Wait, never mind.

"only" threw 6 INTs his injury shortened senior season. For his first three seasons, he was averaging ~2 INTs per GAME. He got progressively WORSE every year from frosh to junior, as far as INTs and QB rating. Now THAT's cycling out!

He had a good year the previous season


May 12, 2020, 11:19 PM

The 87 loss to him was one of the most embarrassing of the 80s, up there with the loss to Reich. That's why I don't like him.

He finished his stellar run as the Coot QB with more INTs than TDs .

That's hard to do , even if you're trying .

He's one of the many Gamecock pre-season Heisman favorites


May 13, 2020, 8:30 AM

Every July they claim at least 1 or 2 of their players are clearly Heisman worthy. Usually by week 2 there's no more mention of it. I imagine Ellis was in the same boat.
