A large number of voters waited and watched the conference championship games before voting.  Their top three votes went to the three guys playing.  As such, there was a large gap in voting between #3 and 4/5, so #4 and #5 were not invited. 

He also thought Henry would win because of what he’s done in the last half of the season (while the voters were paying attention).  Not necessarily agreeing with him; just throwing it out for comment.

Bullshit.  Can't believe Reynolds and Mayfield got stiffed.  Not sure if Mayfield deserved to win it but he was good as hell down the stretch and his play at least merited an invite. 

Just hope Henry doesn't win it - seems like there's a lot of Bama/SEC bias and lobbying going on.  On Saturday, CBS must have said a dozen times that he was 'the presumptive winner of the Heisman' and I was like 'huh?'.  He's pretty good but not amazing and if there is any year in which the Heisman is a toss-up, its this year.

Reynolds and Mayfield absolutely deserved to be there.

Mayfield has better numbers than the last 2 Oklahoma QB's to WIN the Heisman.  And Reynolds was on another planet this year as well.

You can argue that what Derrick Henry did this year is the least impressive of the candidates, yet, he's probably going to win.

I'm hoping for McCaffrey now.

I don't think it's fair to say the AAC is a bad conference. In fact, they're probably a bit deeper than the acc as a whole. Furthermore, I'd put the top half of the AAC up against the top half of every power 5 conference (not saying the aac is better, but would be competitive).

  1. McCaffrey
  2. Henry
  3. Mayfield
  4. Watson
  5. Reynolds

 

Reynolds is more of a lifetime achievement award, but he deserves to be there in NYC. I was certain Mayfield was at least going to get the call to go.
