Another thing I'd add is I really think Williams had to carry less of the total load for his offense than Fontenot.
Sure, Smith and Quinn are great, bu Carter and Dunbar ain't bad.
And Rummel O-line>Barbe oline
And Rummel RB>Barbe RB, although I liked Barbe's RB, he was more of a slot receiver coming out of the backfield at about 150 pounds sopping wet.
In one sense, that hurt Williams numbers vs. Fontnoet. On the other hand, Fontenot carried such a huge burden because of that. He didn't get protected particularly well and there was no power running game. They had the best offens in the state simply because he could run around and throw to great receivers. But the key was, he could run around.
I think you plug Kennon into Rummel's offense and he does as well as Williams. But if you plug Williams into Barbe's offense, he doesn't do as well as Fontenot.
So they made the right choice.
I agree on Roth though. I think Roth should get it if, for no other reason, Rummel went unbeaten in the regular season and beat some quality challengers and Barbe was sort of out-coached for a night in a loss to STM when STM kept pulling things off like faked punts and onsides kicks and all that. Roth should have won.
