Default Random question: Should NIU QB Jordan Lynch be in the Hiesman running?

Obviously there's more football left to be played, and I know NIU is a mid-major BUT...

NIU is 8-1 on the season, with their only loss on opening day to Iowa by only 2 points I believe.

Passing
Lynch has just under 2,000 yards passing, 17 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions.

Rushing Lynch is 2nd in the nation in yards
He has 1,185 yards rushing, 15 touchdowns, and is averaging almost 7 yards a carry.

I understand it's very difficult for someone that plays for a small school to win Heisman, but do you think his name should at least be in the hat at this point?

Before you ask, yes I did go to NIU, but that was a while ago. Still root for them but am not a crazy fan haha.

There are guys putting up numbers around that playing against the big boys, so no. However, those are impressive numbers.

out of curiosity, who?

Lynch has better overall numbers than Braxton Miller. Sure Miller plays better competition, but as I said, Lynch's numbers are better

Klein for K State.

And I love NIU. Been on the campus a few times and absolutely love DeKalb.

Im not saying Lynch should win, just that I think he deserves to be in the top 10 on the rankings

Also, out of Curiosity, how are those numbers better? Not including the games today here are their stats

Klein
157-246 63.8%
1956 yards
14 touchdowns

6 INT
110 Rushes
703 yds
6.5 average
10 touchdowns

Lynch
129-211 61.1%
1710 yards
13 touchdowns
3 INT
149 rushes
1049 yards
7 average
13 touchdowns



those are pretty equal! I think Klein is better, but taking away competition, I think I like Lynch's numbers better.

not sure how Klein is doing today, but Lynch had like 250 yards passing, 4 touchdowns, 140 yards rushing with 2 touchdowns

I'm basically just playing devils advocate here because I think it's an interesting discussion, so please don't take anything personally!

Like you said, Klein is playing against better competition. No one ever said Danny Woodhead should win the Heisman.

I remember Garrett Wolfe was Heisman hopeful for awhile at NIU. Still a great run of games by him!

The first 6 games, he averaged 224 yards a game. Absolutely insane.

And then the Bears drafted him 2 rounds too early and he's no longer in the NFL haha

Optimus Klein has probably got this on lockdown. This years crop of candidates is kinda weak and the powerhouse schools have a lot of good guys siphoning stats away from each other.

Indeed he did, I still think T'eo isn't nearly as dominant as Suh was in college.

I'd be impressed if he didn't do it in the MAC. Omar Jacobs, anyone?

Yeah, he was really good, but it also doesn't help that his team finished 8-3 that year. If NIU can beat Toledo next week, they have a good chance at sneaking into the top 25 i'd say. That would certainly get Lynch more attention

But, once again, they're in the MAC. Their biggest win right now is over Kansas...his stats are impressive, but the level of competition is not. The year Colt Brennan through for 5,500 yards and 58 touchdowns, he didn't finish in the top ten.

That is very true, but whether it's fair or not, Lynch's duality makes him a more attractive choice.

He's on pace to throw for 2,600 have 23 Touchdowns and only 4 INTs, and rush for 1600 yards and have 20 touchdowns.


when is the last time a QB did that? Robinson in 2010 is comparable but he wasn't as efficient a passer

Yep, I graduated in 08. How is the hype around campus? I hear they still can't fill Husky stadium. The convo is a bit of a joke, or at least was when I was there

For those interested, NIU is playing on ESPN2 right now, a big game by Lynch could put him in the top 10 and a win by NIU will probably get them ranked!
