Travis Etienne snubbed

Ridiculous that Taylor won it. Awards are biased and it sucks for those who have earned them. Feel the same about Deshaun 2 years later. Just don’t get it.

He didn’t do more with less. Yes he had more ypc but he had 500 less yards.


It's a crying shame

When a player is penalized for playing on a successful team, rather than simply be the team. That's what I'm hearing...

I don’t know why you are hearing that. ETN is a great back on a great team. Taylor is a great back on a mediocre team. Both are great players and Taylor had better stats. ETN still has a chain to win the best team trophy and Taylor does not. This not the snub that Watson got.

His ypc is 1.2 higher than Taylor and his rush per TD is 8.38 vs Taylor's of 18.67. Etienne is far better in the stats that should really count more, but after Henry won the Heisman when he was like 46th in the country in ypc or something like that it's all about the totals.


Until we get more voters born after 1970 this is what's

going to happen. I think Jonathan Taylor is a really good back and he was pretty much Wisconsin's entire offense this year, but these awards are still basically given out to whoever compiles the most stats.


Gotta love that Soylent Green mentality

I am going on a limb here, but maybe Travis is not the best RB in the country at this time.

Wasn't watching. Was ETN a nominee for an award?

Did they do a hype piece on him as part of the show?

Didn’t see a hype piece though I’m sure they showed highlights at some point.

Yes, they showed highlights before the award.

Etienne had 526 less yards on 104 less carries and averaged 8.3 yds per carry vs 7.1 with 21 TDs vs 15. While having 3 other backs with 166 carries and 1500 yards combined.

We have too many guys that get as many carries as Travis. Taylor is the work horse for Wisconsin. We too deep

The greatest award is a team award and hopefully we will bring that home in January
