Football Twitter wants Caleb Williams holding Heisman Trophy right now
After USC Football QB1 Caleb Williams' dominant, four-touchdown performance against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, football fans all over the world all had one reaction. And it was the same reaction.
That reaction was the strong feeling that Williams needs to be the Heisman Trophy winner. Football Twitter went absolutely insane over his performance, and rightfully so. ESPN's Stephen A. Smith even thinks it's a done deal:
And...he very well might not be wrong. Williams secured the 11th win of USC's season on Saturday, and it wasn't even close. SC won 38-27, and secured their remarkable SEVEN-game turnaround after adding Williams to the team this offseason. They went 4-8 last season in the worst year in program history, and now after adding the Heisman front-runner, they are 11-1 just 12 games later.
And Heisman front-runner he most certainly is. Longtime and legendary College Football Writer and Radio Host Arash Markazi made sure to post what he feels is Williams' true 'Heisman moment:'
USC Football QB1 Caleb Williams scored THREE rushing touchdowns for the Trojans against Notre Dame.
Caleb Williams was as elusive as it gets for USC Football on Saturday; having MANY of those highlights where he evaded the entire defense. He truly doesn't feel pressure. He had 35 rushing yards, and his passing was about as efficient as it gets too.
He was 18 of 22 passing, for 232 passing yards. That's 10.5(!) yards per pass attempt. Local beat reporters covering the game knew the Heisman when they saw him:
He's truly having that type of year. One of the most impressive parts of Williams' season has been his ball security. He has lost zero fumbles, and thrown just three picks. He didn't have any turnovers against ND.
His top competition, Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud, had two interceptions this week. He's now up to double the INTs Williams has this year. FS1's Shannon Sharpe talked about Williams now being the true Heisman over Stroud:
Williams is now up to 9.1 yards per pass attempt, and 10.5 adjusted yards per pass attempt. That means he now has 3,712 pass yards on the season, and there's still two games left. His four TD's also mean he's at 44 total touchdowns (34 passing), and there's still two games left.
This type of performance has forced ESPN's Jorge Sedano to already declare Williams as the best college quarterback he's ever seen in his life:
It's important to be real and truthful about this: Caleb Williams is the best player in the country. There is no excuse to not have him as the Heisman front-runner right now.
A player with those 3,712 passing yards and 351 rushing yards with a conference championship and bowl game still on the way? If those aren't Heisman numbers, nothing are.
