Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: Could Alabama’s Dominance Hurt Tua’s Chances?

Could Alabama’s dominance actually hurt quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s Heisman chances? At least this week, yes. While Alabama is a 24-point favorite against rival Auburn in the Iron Bowl Saturday, Tagovailoa’s four biggest contenders all have more intriguing and compelling matchups that could bolster their standing with Heisman voters. Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray and West Virginia’s Will […]

Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: Waiting for Tua to Come Back to Earth

Because there were no huge upsets last week, my Heisman ballot remains unchanged from a week ago. Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa – bad knee and all – is the still the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. Some Heisman voters have asked a valid question about Tagovailoa’s status as the consensus No. 1 choice: How […]

Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: Will Grier Has a “Heisman Moment”

Stop the presses! Wait. Are there even any presses anymore? I guess I’m showing my age with that newspaper reference and on Saturday, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa showed he’s human by – stop the presses! – throwing his first interception of the season. Tagovailoa’s streak of 194 consecutive passing attempts without an interception ended Saturday night […]

Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: Tua Tagovailoa Faces First Test

The suspense is killing me: is this the week we actually – dare I say it? – see Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa play in the fourth quarter? It hasn’t happened yet, but with the Crimson Tide visiting LSU Saturday night, it should be the toughest test for Tagovailoa – and Bama – this season. Tagovailoa had […]

Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: Washington State and Purdue Candidates Rising

Another week, another Alabama blowout and another fourth quarter with Tua on the sideline. This week, Tua Tagovailoa won’t play in the fourth quarter either. OK, so the Crimson Tide is off Saturday. But Tagovailoa’s right knee strain can use the rest. While Tagovailoa gets a week off, I don’t have that luxury. Here’s my […]

Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: New Names Join Tagovailoa, Haskins

At this point, I’m surprised Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s right knee doesn’t already have its own Twitter account, giving college football fans daily (hourly?) updates on the status of his knee. Officially, Tagovailoa’s knee is fine. Last week, he aggravated a knee sprain in the third quarter against Missouri. Alabama coach Nick Saban said on […]

Brett McMurphy’s Heisman Ballot: No One Is Catching Tua

It’s over. Finished. The Heisman Trophy race is officially kaput. I know all about the laundry list of September and early October Heisman locks (Leonard Fournette, Denard Robinson, Geno Smith, Kenny Hill and Saquon Barkley), who failed to win the Heisman. But this time it feels so much different. It is Tua Time. Even before […]
