Baylor's Robert Griffin III (RG3) has shred every defense he has faced this year. Through seven games, his statistics are through the roof as he has led the Bears to four wins and two losses. If the Heisman Trophy Award was really given to the most dominant player in college football, then RG3 would almost assuredly be at least invited to New York for the ceremony. However, that is not what seems to control how people vote.
Instead, voting for the Heisman Trophy Award seems to go to the best offensive player on the best or one of the best teams in the Nation. Currently, Baylor is not ranked, and they still have three very tough games. They have to travel to the #4 Oklahoma State Cowboys, and they will host the #3 Oklahoma Sooners and the #24 Texas Longhorns. There is a very good chance the Bears will lose at least two of those games, if not all three.
If the Bears were to lose four or five games on the season, will RG3 have a legitimate shot at winning the Heisman Trophy Award?
