As much as I dislike Alabama fans, I just can’t agree with the premise behind this ... that Saban was overlooking Trask. He also didn’t shill for Jones post game. Saban is in many ways the ideal coach. Runs a tight program, all about team, will bench a selfish player (shoe toss cough), etc. The bad about all of this is that the BCS and now Playoff system is designed to concentrate championships in an elite group of now four or five teams. All the recruits know this and flock to Bama, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Clemson. Giving the Hiesman to a player with an NFL line and lottery pick running back over a player outside the ‘elite four’ with superior numbers simply makes the problem worse. The pitch to the top QB prospect now is ‘If you want to win the Heisman you have to go with the team set up to make the ‘playoff’ every season if you want a trophy. Just look at Trask - record setting numbers but no Heisman.’ It’s just another way to stack the deck. They are destroying college football.
