Just in case you’re one of those old fuddy duddys that think the Heisman trophy can only go to a QB, Chase Young is here to let you know that you’re stupid and you need to rethink your dumb stance.
That strip sack-fumble was the 4th sack of the day for Ohio St’s DE Chase Young. That puts Young at 13.5 sacks on the season. Oh, and the four sacks today, he’s doing this against Wisconsin. You know Wisconsin, the team that is always known for its stellar offensive line. Yeah, he’s destroying them.
Here’s the Heisman odds list as of October 20th.
Chase Young’s name isn’t even on it. Fart sandwich Ian Book and a bunch of other guys I’ve never heard of are on it, but not Chase Young because he plays on defense. If we’re supposed to be so progressive in 2019, I think having a defensive player, who’s probably the best overall player in the country, would be smart to have on that list.
I realize that the last time a defensive player won the Heisman trophy was back in 1997 when Charles Woodson. Since then, there has only been a few defensive players up for the Heisman. But, we knew there was no way they could win. That needs to change and that needs to change this year. Chase Young is the truth and has no signs of slowing down. He’ll, probably, get close to 18 sacks which is still six short of Terrell Suggs record but it’s time to move away from automatically crowning a QB with the biggest individual trophy in college football. So many stats for QBs are generated by receivers taking seven-yard passes and taking them for 80 yards. There are no luck sacks unless you’re Michael Strahan. So let’s be smart and get Chase Young into the conversation for the Heisman Trophy.
