If we wouldn't have turned the ball over twice in the fourth we would have won.
He also doesn't win if he doesn't go 24-of-31 for two TDs and over 5 ypc. Let me reiterate the key stat there: 24. Of. 31. The kid connected on nearly 80% of his passes against the top defense in the country. I don't understand why so many around here refuse to give him any credit just because we managed to make a game out of it.
Agree. Beating us pushed him over the top.
But I would rather him win than a ND linebacker.
Umm.... Not sure anybody is failing to give him credit. Just saying beating the #1 team in the country pushed him up as the front runner. If he hadn't won that game he may not have won.
Lets see we tried to run early some and failed. They were keying on it.
We turned the ball over which didn't help obviously.
The kid shreads us as the guy said with 80% completion.
Oh yeah, and if we run the ball at the end we hand the ball back to the guy who has torched us all day. So I am missing the part about where it is obvious we win the game by giving him the ball back.
Give the devil his due. He had an awesome year and is a special talent. Congrats to him.
IMO, if we beat T&M. We lose to UGA in the ATL. I would rather have a loss to A&M, Johnny when the Heisman & us on our way to Miami. Again this is just my opinion.
People keep saying "if we do X, he doesn't win the Heisman" as if all he did to earn it was have a W next to the word "Alabama" with his name attached. Re-read the OP and while you're at it the one a while back about AJ's goal-line pick. They act like we gave him the Heisman when he didn't do anything to earn it. If A&M had a real kicker, that game would have been 34-17 midway through the fourth quarter.
You are reading a lot more into what the OP said than what he may have been saying.
I interpreted if we ran the ball more as we would have won the game. That was one of the major themes the night of the game and the days after. Then if we won Johnny might not have won the heisman.
Agreed, people want to believe we gave the game away somehow. Easier than admitting we just got beat that day. A great player was totally in the zone and had a ridiculous game.
A few plays go the other way and we win, sure. You could say that about any close game. A few other plays go differently and we lose by 17. They made the key plays we didn't.
In my view, if we had run the ball, yes, we would have won the game against aTm. However, Johnny would have still had the amazing performance against us that ultimately won him the Heisman Trophy.
I'm just glad Teo didn't win. These ND cats are already getting annoying.
If "if's" and "buts" were candy and nuts, we'd all have a wonderful Christmas!
and we are since we are playing in our consecutive 2nd National Championship!
Beat Irish! RTR!
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
Looking back that was probably the best thing to happen for Alabama was to lose that game it reenergized us
Because only bama beats bama
My opinion is if we win it AJ would have went to New York
He kept alot of plays alive, and our secondary didn't play them well. The kid was AWESOME that day in Ttown. Yes, we had our shot at the end, but, with that much time on the clock and the groove he was in, who's to say he wouldn't have made the plays to lead his team to a victory? He earned and deserved the trophy he got last night.

That's one crazy assumption bro. How could anyone assume a win or loss from the result of another game is beyond me. Would we also win the A&M game if we lost the lsu game too?
