To his credit the game he had in win over Miami was more impressive than the records. Other than the Miami game, he lit up a bunch of bad defenses & before getting completely shut down in the final two games. I mean the dude tossed close to 30 picks, so it was similar to a system anomaly like when Andre Ware won it a few years earlier. Look at all the TTU QBs (Kingsbury, Harrell, etc) that put up bigger #s than Detmer...nowhere near winning the Heisman.

I’m obviously biased, but I still maintain Rocket was more deserving. Considering all the records Detmer broke, it was still a damn close vote when comparing to other years.

What folks don’t appreciate is how well Rocket performed all 3 seasons despite having future NFL skill players all over the field competing for touches. Rickey Watters, Reggie Brooks, Jerome Bettis, Tony Brooks, Derek Brown, Irv Smith, Rodney Culver, Pat Eilers, Anthony Johnson.

Lou could only do so much. Remember he had Rocket play RB a lot, too. But, you’re right he would’ve rewritten the record books had he had more touches.

Second, ND beats #1 FSU in the “Game of the Century” only to lose a heartbreaker the following week to top 25 ranked BC team on last play of the game. Both teams won their bowl games leading ND & fans to assume a split title. But Bowden was the media darling & had always been the bridesmaid so they were gonna make sure he got his “lifetime achievement” award as well.

Even if a CFB fan can make an argument that ND didn’t deserve at least a split of the ‘93 title, then their logic should award a split of the ‘89 title to ND b/c there’s no rational reason to shut ND out in both instances.
Reps. Been arguing this exact scenario for years. In my non-Humble opinion, we did win the title in 93'. 'They" the media said all month before the bowl games If we win and FSU wins by less than like 5 or 6 points we should win the Title. Then they awarded Bowden the title because he'd fought so hard for so many years... and deserved a title. (his only 1) BLah Blah Blah. We won We should claim the Title and put It on the banner.
