I can see the arguments about SEC Freshman of the year with what Lattimore meant to his team, his 1000+ yard season and 17 TDs, but can disagree with them, as Murray had a 3000+ yard season and 24 passing and 4 rushing TDs. However, that isn't an apples to apples comparison, so there is room for debate. I can't see how you pick Taylor Martinez over Aaron Murray, when you are comparing apples to apples.
A quick review of the stats reveals the stark differences in the season the two QBs had:
|Rush Yrds||Pass Yrds||Plays||Tot Yrds||Yds/play||Pass TD||Rush TD||Rating||Yds/game|
Murray was 33rd in the nation in total offense, compared to Martinez's 59th. They had equal numbers of ints (6), despite Martinez throwing 117 fewer balls. Murray's cohort in QB rating (he was 9th) is Jeff Godfrey of UCF, Ricky Stanzi of Iowa, Andrew Luck of Stanford, and Greg McElroy of Alabama. Martinez's (he was a respectable 38th) cohort includes Christian Ponder of FSU, Zach Collaros of Cincinnati, Tino Sunseri of Pitt, and Carson Coffman of Kansas State. When you throw the scoring difference in (28 TDs to 21 TDs), the pick becomes laughable.
Hey, I get these are really just made up awards. They do mean something to the kids and their fans, so at least be open about why you are picking these players. Clearly it wasn't for their statistical performance.
