Anyone remember Baker Mayfield???
teambeer saidGoes to show how if you catch a break, a QB works out like that kid and we have a different season on our hands.
That said, Jeff Driskel was the worlds greatest QB coming out of high school…they don't always work out. Sure would be nice to find out though!Posted On: Sep 7th 2013, 9:08 PM
Just found this and it only took 4 years to find out he is one of the greatest….
Owl2Doc saidBaker Mayfield is definitely getting some hype in the preseason magazines. Would have been great for that hype to be around an FAU player.Posted On: Aug 20th 2016, 1:26 AM
It's about to be…#5
There is no consistency for what it is really supposed to be. Not hard to see that it is the most-hyped (player and program). Jackson actually had very similar overall numbers and was a better passer this season, but his team was 8-4 and he was WAY back in 3rd place. Derrick Henry won in 2015 primarily because he had 3 or 4 really big weeks in a row with every game on national TV. He was the most outstanding player on the Alabama team that was going to win the title - so he was going to win the award no matter what anybody else did.
Mayfield may very well have deserved it this season because he played big in big games, but this was one of the 5 most lopsided Heisman wins in history. And I am not sure I am ready to say Baker Mayfield is one of the all-time greatest college football players.
