Will Hawaii Have the Next Heisman Trophy Winner?

By

ColtBrennanColt Brennan, the University of Hawaii's quarterback had a season legends are made of. 

Colt completed the best statistical season by a quarterback in the history of NCAA football. This season he threw a NCAA record 58 touchdowns.  He had a total of 5549 yards passing, while completing 409 of 559 attempts.  His average passing efficiency was 185.96. 

His great stats tell only part of the story.  He was one of the runners up for the Heisman Trophy.  The reason given for him not being seriously considered was that he played for UH and didn't have a tough schedule.  Well let's look at that.  Against Alabama in the opening game of the season he threw 350 yards, 2 touch downs and completed 30 of 44.  Against Purdue he threw 434 yards, threw 3 touch downs and completed 33 of 48 attempts.  His stats all season were very similar in every game.

HawaiiBowlTo put the cherry on the top he had the 2nd half of a lifetime in the Hawaii Bowl against Arizona State.  After a tough 1st half that ended with ASU up 10-3, Colt stepped on the field in front of national television and made a statement that Hawaii fans will be telling their grandchildren about.  He finished the game with a 41-24 victory.  In the second half he threw 5 touchdown passes, made 33 of 44 attempts and finished with a total of 559 yards passing.

We are all holding our breath to see of he will be coming back or going pro.  If he comes back season tickets will be impossible to get and he will start the season as the Heisman favorite.

Randy as an avid football fan I must say I didn't know of him. Here in the northeast we must not get the farwest sports stats.

It does sound like this guy is for real. Hopefully he will stay in college.

Thanks Jay

Jay - He is big, has a super quick release and never panics under pressure.  If he goes pro I hope he goes to Chicago.  Da Bears!

Elaine - Ohio State had a great year; great team. 

If Hawaii was higher ranked and played more on National TV Colt would have taken it easily.  I expect Colt to have a bigger future in the pros.

I'm sure Hawaii does have a disadvantage due to your location. After all, I doubt Hawaii comes to mind when people mention "powerhouse football". ;-) Just happened to think of this ... your team would certainly have some big travel budget! Do many of your fans go to 'away' games?

Elaine -  Our fans travel a lot.  We do have a large number of players in the pros and our coaching staff has a lot of NFL experience.

I didn't know that about the NFL connection, but then I don't watch pro football - just college, and in particular, the Big 10, of course. I knew there was a "close" contender for the Heisman, as local news was concerned as to whether Troy would win it, but I didn't pay attention to who the contender was. Now that I "know" a Rainer from Hawaii, I'll pay more attention next fall.

Have a good year!

Colt had a great year but most of the polsters think their conference is weak. If he puts up these kind of numbers next year, he will have to be up for more serious consideration. After all, haven't they had a few Heisman winners from BYU?

Elaine - June Jones is our coach.  He was an NFL head coach for the Chargers.  His staff is mostly ex-NFL coaches or players.  He has done a great job with Hawaii.  We have a ton of high school players from Hawaii that go on to play at most of the big colleges and many on to the NFL.  Since June took over he has done a great job of keeping a lot of our best talent home.

Doug - BYU left our conference.  When they announced Deitmer won the Heisman, his team was number 8 in the Nation.  Hawaii destroyed them that very day in Aloha Stadium.  I was there and it was beautiful.
