This isn't meant to be a trash talk thread, but I put it here because I know it will end up there.

I don't get all the Nick Marshall hype.  Sure we was the QB on the national champs runners up.

ESPN and others have him as the top or one of the top Heisman players, top SEC player, etc.

I'm not saying he sucks, but the thew for a whopping 1,976 yards and 14 TDs.  

He completed more than 20 passes once all of 2013.

Then ran for 1,068 and 13 TDs.  (Which is impressive)

Some please help explain to me why the national media is all on his junk.  He is a good SEC player, but there are better QBs and RBs in the SEC than Marshall.

No way he's a Heisman hopeful....only thing I can think of is that they're trolling the hell outta UGA.

I did see improvement as the year went on. But, and I know this sounds like a broken record, but missing two entire games and only starting seven, Dak put up numbers that were damn near as good as Marshall's.  Suffice it to say, I don't think Dak is a Heisman winner, and I don't think Marshall is either.

Now, I can take the Posted Image from my own brethren over this.

He's Posted Imagein lucky as hell, I'll give him that.

Completing a 30 yd pass or however long it was to himself, that's hard to Posted Imageing do.

He's not a polished passer by any means but his decision making, especially in the run game was spot on last year. His last TD pass against us before the kick-six was such a heady play. Just shows how he's progressed in that system.

not bad for a guy that came in during the fall and won the job.   he has a whole year and summer to get better and learn more plays.    Better receivers around him.    His numbers will be better


Heisman    sure why not.   Who will do better?

You sure have found creative ways to introduce Dak into every conversation...

with the talent around him, coker could be mediocre and look like a franchise qb.

Marshall deserves credit for making good decisions most of the time, his instincts were solid last season. Malzahn put him into position to perform well, but like a lot of QBs he was flat in some games. Just so happens those games were the two Auburn lost.

I don't know about Heisman, but in that offense he'll put better numbers than last year more than likely, if he stays healthy.
