Doughty winning the Baugh definitely is silly. That trophy though only concerns itself with passing, not overall QB performance. He did beat both in yards and TD so I could see why some would vote for him. Still, how you vote against 38:2 does not compute for me.


Next it will be interesting to see if the 5 major selectors for the 2014 All-American team all give it to Mariota or if at least one honors Boykin. Since 2004, there have only been two times were all five gave it to the same QB (2006 Troy Smith, 2009 Colt McCoy)

in 2004, three went Matt Leinart (Heisman winner), two went Alex Smith, who was one of 5 invited to NYC that year:
1 Matt Leinart * Southern Cal JR QB 267 211 102 1325
2 Adrian Peterson * Oklahoma FR RB 154 180 175 997
3 Jason White * Oklahoma SR QB 171 149 146 957
4 Alex Smith * Utah SR QB 98 112 117 635
5 Reggie Bush * Southern Cal SO RB 118 80 83 597

in 2005, three went Vince Young, two Matt Leinert (they were #2 and #3 in Heisman, Reggie Bush won)

in 2006, all five went Troy Smith (Heisman winner). Brady Quinn was only other QB in Heisman Top 5.

In 2007, four went Teb3w (Heisman winner), one Matt Ryan (Ryan was #7 in Heisman behind 5 QBs: Teb3w, Colt Brennan, Chase Daniel, Dennis Dixon, Pat White)

In 2008, two gave it to Bradford, two to McCoy, one to Harrell (none went Teb3w who was in that Top 3 Heisman race with Bradford and McCoy)

in 2009, all five went McCoy (who was only QB in Top 3 Heisman race, none went Teb3w although Teb3w got invited to NYC as the 5th finalist)
1 Mark Ingram * Alabama SO RB 227 236 151 1304
2 Toby Gerhart * Stanford SR RB 222 225 160 1276
3 Colt McCoy * Texas SR QB 203 188 160 1145
4 N-kong Suh * Nebraska DL 161 105 122 815
5 Tim T3bow * Florida SR QB 43 70 121 390
6 C.J. Spiller * Clemson SR RB 26 31 83 223

in 2010, four went Cam Newton (won Heisman in landslide), one went Kellen Moore, who was a junior that year and was one of the 4 invited to NYC for Heisman:
1 Cam Newton * Auburn JR QB 729 24 28 2263
2 Andrew Luck * Stanford SO QB 78 309 227 1079
3 LaMichael James * Oregon SO RB 22 313 224 916
4 Kellen Moore * Boise State JR QB 40 165 185 635

in 2011, three went RG3, two went Luck. They were #1 and #2 in Heisman vote

in 2012, four went Manziel (Heisman winner), one Tahj Boyd (not in Heisman Top 10, only QBs who were: Manziel, Collin Klein, Braxton Miller, Jordan Lynch)

in 2013, three went Winston, two McCarron

in 2014, one has already gone Mariota, waiting on other four

Also, there is still the Manning Award which is announced Jan 12 after the national championship. This allows them to evaluate the play of the QBs in the postseason. For example, in 2006 they gave it to JaMarcus Russell, who didn't even finish in the Heisman top 10. But the only two QBs in the Heisman Top 5 (and the only Power 5 QBs in the Heisman Top 10), Troy Smith and Brady Quinn, both got their butts kicked in the postseason: Troy Smith lost 14-41 to Florida and Quinn lost 14-41 to JaMarcus Russell and LSU, which helped make Russell the #1 overall pick that upcoming draft

add 2014 Mariota...all five gave it to him. Unanimous All-American.
