Stovall was hosed for Baker. Alexander candidate twice, highest finish 3rd. TM 4th last Fall.

Of the two most recent Heisman winners, RG3 grew up an LSU fan. Manziel too, and sent LSU film.

I always felt that those who voted didn't want another LSU winner so close together. Jerry did so much, so well, he should have walked away with it.

Stovall was hosed as stated. He should have been selected hands down.

Would have been interesting to see how they did at WR.

Haha...iswydt.

I was talking to someone last week about how Les basically picked JJ over RG3 (don't know much of the details or how close RG3 was to actually coming to LSU). The other person said, "imagine how good 2011 would've been with RG3." My response was what you said above.

Yes, BC was 3rd in 58! Jerry Stovall runner up in 62! I had a picture of Jerry in my room as a very young Tiger fan that year!

I think Dalton Hilliard finished pretty high up one year.
