It’s a common tale in Heisman history.
BYU’s Ty Detmer won the award as a junior in 1990, but finished a distance third behind Desmond Howard in 1991.
“The hard parts winning it again because the expectation level goes up,” Detmer said earlier this week. “I felt like my senior year I was a much better player than my junior year. Smarter, less turnovers. Didn’t have as good a stats, but I felt like I was a better player my senior year. But the expectations were different.”
Expectations will by sky high in College Station next season. The move to the SEC, hiring Sumlin and the second Heisman in the history of the program _ and first since John David Crow in 1957 _ have Aggies’ hopes soaring.
“The award for the program is huge,” Sumlin said. “There’s a lot of programs out there that don’t have one. It took a long time for Texas A&M to get to two.”
Maybe Manziel can buck the trends again and A&M won’t have to wait so long to add a third.
