The Heisman Trophy Belongs To Kyler Murray
After piling up 396 total yards and five touchdowns in a Big 12 Championship game victory over Texas, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has separated himself from Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa—who picked a really bad day to have the worst game of his career.
I could spend another 700-or-so words on an exhaustive—and exhausting—argument in favor of the Oakland A's first round selection, but, in the interest of time and efficiency, I won't.
Instead, I'd just like to present a handful of Blinkin Riley tweets to take care of that for me:
Tua vs UGA:— Blinkin Riley (@blinkinriley) December 3, 2018
Pass Yds - 164
% - 40.0
Rating - 92.3
Y/A - 6.6
Tot Yds - 143
Tot Y/A - 5.1
Pass Yds - 165 (Army)
% - 57.1 (TTU)
Rating - 151.4 (KU)
Y/A - 8.5 (KU)
Tot Yds - 232 (FAU)
Tot Y/A - 8.0 (TCU)
Even a made up game of his worst performances, isn't that bad https://t.co/nATyKJjAAa
Tua was in for 71.4% of Alabama's offensive plays against Georgia.— Blinkin Riley (@blinkinriley) December 3, 2018
Tua was Alabama's QB for 48 minutes and 45 seconds of that game's 60 minutes.
Tua had 5 passes in the 4th quarter against Georgia. He had 3 all season before Saturday.
Try again. https://t.co/DDbccWgSGG
In 22 touches against Army, Kyler Murray had...— Blinkin Riley (@blinkinriley) December 3, 2018
165 Passing Yards
3 Passing TDs
71 Rushing Yards
1 Rushing TD
So he averaged...
10.7 yards per play
5.5 plays per touchdown
Overall Rating (Rating Against Teams with a Winning Record) :— Blinkin Riley (@blinkinriley) December 4, 2018
Murray - 205.72 (209.04)
Haskins - 175.77 (174. 95)
Plays per TD:
Murray - 9.08
Haskins - 11.16
And only having 13% more passing yards and 18% more passing TDs on 46% more attempts is pretty embarrassing tbh https://t.co/7qOjT7wYRb
Seconds of possession per play:— Blinkin Riley (@blinkinriley) December 4, 2018
Oklahoma - 26.7
Ohio State - 23.9
So, if "clock management" is the reason Ohio State runs more plays between scores, why does Ohio State run plays at a 10.5% faster pace?
It might be time to bow out of this one, chief https://t.co/nyW39KJwQd
