Travis Etienne deserves trip to New York for Heisman Trophy ceremony

Once again, the Heisman Trophy winner appears to be a foregone conclusion with LSU quarterback Joe Burrow poised to become the runaway winner. But Heisman voters – and I am one of them – are selling themselves and Clemson running back Travis Etienne short if they fail to include the junior on their ballot. Full Story »



I say lets let ETN the record vs coots, 208 yds is doable

I love ETN. I got a purple 9 jersey his freshman season and 3 of my friends got white or orange.
I love the energy he brings to the game, how he never quits and it justifies letting someone like Feaster go like he did. I recognize the stats mentioned in the article as real and relevant, especially in the context of how Clemson plays.

BUT (unpopular opinion time) he's not a Hypesman candidate in my mind.

Maybe, as it used to be, he should be a Heisman candidate. But the Heisman race has turned into PR, gaudy statistics, runaway games and politicking and I hate it. Nobody on the Clemson team needs to worry about the stupid Hypesman award.

Win games, accomplish the goals, play for the national title, be good people, go to the next level.


THIS!

The Downtown Athletic Club will never get the voting or the award right anymore.

Just let this award die on the vine.

I hope LSU makes it long enough to play Clemson

Agree with Neal. We won’t need another 4-16 miracle this go round. We’ve taken down a few heisman winners lately! Ha!

Go Tigers!!!!

Sorry, but not sorry. Lost ALL credibility for the Heisman when CJ wasnt even invited to NY and DeShauwn didnt win it.I mean REALLY?

So, David not counting you, but the three voters in SC those years were USC grads and voted against those two. The votes were made public.

Sorry, but just too political and biased to be a
true measure of the best player.

Yeah DeShaun definitely got screwed over. By far had the best overall year. Dabo isn’t a stats guy though. He’s a wins guy. Petrino might have helped Lamar get the Heisman but is out of the job now. ???????

He should get an invite and should win the trophy for the best RB this year but it won’t happen. The voters will give it to the RB with the most yards. They won’t take into account carries, yards per carry, or any other stat that he destroys everyone else in. I’m sure Travis would like the trophies but I think he’d really like and other a few more Championships with a more rings to go on his fingers. The Wisconsin RB and OK State RB don’t have opportunities at those. ???????

Yep, burrow will win it but imo just like Oklahoma, you got to ask why they have the stats they. Good Lawd what stats ETN and Trevor would have if they played full games.

He won’t be the first back in the draft either because like hypesman, nfl is a stats and popularity draft. Hopefully he goes to the Oakland Tigers.

He along with Simmons will be the steals in the draft and will play a long time at the next level. Teams will be licking their chops to get him. Can’t imagine what he’d be as a check down back. Wow... talk about teams having to cover him and how that’d open the downfield game.

Oakland drafted Josh Jacobs in the first round last year so I don't they will draft another high RB this year and I'm guessing ETN goes pretty high.

It kills me how the Heisman just jumps on hypetrains and shows so much bias. Last year ETN had 6 more TD's (20 v 26) and 2 YPC higher (6.1 vs 8.1) than Mark Ingram did when he won it and he never sniffed the trophy. Then Derrick Henry wins it purely on getting a lot of carries and nothing else special about his stats.

There should be 5 invited. Burrow, Chase Young, Tua, Hurts and Taylor.

Why would anyone want to go watch someone else receive an award. Just for a trip to NY?
