There was a reason we had Braxton Miller as our Heisman front runner entering the season. Given the numbers he’s starting to put up, I think it’s easy to see why he was such an attractive candidate at one time.
But, he did miss three games due to injury and you can’t win the Heisman if you miss that many games in a season.
Here are the combined stats of Miller and Guiton right now:
2,065 passing yards, 29 TDs, 5 interceptions, 717 rushing yards, 7 TDs.
That projects out to that player having 4,056 passing yards, 42 passing TDs, 1,035 rushing yards, 10 rushing TDs by the time the Heisman vote is due.
Those numbers would’ve more than enough for Ohio State to win its record eighth Heisman. In fact, it would’ve been one of the great slam dunks in the trophy’s history.
