Tua might have lost it tonight. Sucks that it works like that but it's the biggest game before the vote and Kyler outplayed him by a country mile, say what you want about the defenses he's played. At least BAMA won the SEC though. The National Championship is bigger than any individual award.
statement (and understatement) of the year.

Not gonna lie..

It was clear that Locks' head and heart were already in College Park. He wanted a Heisman feather in his cap on his way out. So, he got cute and tried home run route combos way too much. He should have adjusted after the first drive and TAKEN WHAT THE DEFENSE GAVE HIM.

Locks lost Tua the Heisman tonight in an effort to try and win it, despite what the defense was giving.

Slants, screens, and hitches were there ALL NIGHT with UGA's man coverage.

Tua could've nickeled and dimed his way to 300 yards and locking the Heisman.

Don't let the door hit ya, Mike.

I couldn't agree more!!!! Even a couple of runs to keep the sticks moving.

Terrible play calling on offense tonight. All deep halls and too many 3 passed and out. Almost every run between the tackles was successful but they only did it like 10 times all game. Too many times trying to go wide and too many load up and go deep. Also too many drops.

Tua did hold it too long a couple of times but the poor play calling led to so many 3 and outs.

reminds of oklahoma game
 
Chase with the hot take here, sort of echoing what Saban said as far as a whole body of work, instead of one final game before the vote when Tua was injured on the 1st drive..

Defenses Tua Tagovailoa faced this season:
Louisville - 122
Arkansas State - 49
Ole Miss - 121
Texas A&M - 36
ULL - 95
Arkansas - 76
Missouri - 53
Tennessee - 50
LSU - 29
Mississippi State - 3
Citadel - 66 (Equated to 395.4 ypg) which is good for 66 in FBS
Auburn - 45
Georgia - 13

AVERAGE DEFENSE FACED: 58TH

Defenses Kyler Murray faced this season:
FAU - 90
UCLA - 105
ISU - 34
Army - 11
Baylor - 77
Texas - 68
TCU - 26
KSU - 73
TTU - 111
OKST - 99
KU - 80
WVU - 74
Tex - 68

AVERAGE DEFENSE FACED: 70th

Tua faced better defenses through his run than Kyler has, also facing multiple defenses stronger than Kyler's best defense. If it wasn't for Louisville and Ole Miss imploding on defense, Tua would have a much higher ranking than it even is.

Adjusted Ranks Removed two worst defenses:

Tua - 47th (-11)
Kyler - 64th (-6)

Kyler struggled mightily against the 58th ranked defense, only breaking through in the 4th quarter to make the game close, Tua struggled against the number 13th ranked defense.

Kyler has a loss, Tua does not. Kyler has played nearly 3 games more than Tua has in minutes during the season and plays in a very system-like offense. Nearly identical stats to Baker Mayfield, suggest that Oklahoma while strong, is just a system offense that anyone could run.
