Letters: Jayden Daniels is a legend and deserves the Heisman

In response to Bobby Brettel’s letter to the editor, “Who cares about Daniels winning the Heisman?” Every LSU fan and the entire LSU Tiger Nation cares, along with any true college football fan.

Louisiana players have only won the award twice in the Heisman’s 88-year history, thus the coverage by The Advocate.

Jayden Daniels is the only college QB to pass for 350+ yards and rush for 200+ yards in a single game, and that was against an SEC defense.

Daniels is the only player in FBS history to pass for over 12,000 yards and rush for over 3,000 yards.

Not sure why LSU coach Brian Kelly is even mentioned in Brettel’s letter regarding the Heisman, but he is only in his second year at LSU and took over a program whose roster had been decimated by graduation and transfers. In his first year, he took LSU to an SEC championship game, which is by far and away the most challenging conference in college football.

In his first two years, he has a chance to have back-to-back 10-win seasons which has never been accomplished by a coach in their first two years at LSU.

His three losses this year were to Top 10 teams, and that is with the worst defense in LSU memory, thus another accomplishment by Daniels. 

Willie Fritz has done a remarkable job coaching Tulane’s program and making them relevant for the first time in over 40 years, but the AAC is not the SEC, and many of Tulane’s wins have been with last-minute heroics against marginal opponents.

Geaux Daniels! Geaux Tigers!
