  • Joe Burrow was almost an afterthought.

  • 298th ranked player in the Class of 2015 a transferred quarterback playing for a team that is always one with defense.

  • By the end of the year, though, he was a household name, putting together the single greatest season I've ever seen by any quarterback.

  • Yes, good.

  • Hello, Quick History Lesson.

  • Borough transferred to L s U from Ohio State and was set to run an offense that fans have been complaining about for years under head coach Ed Orgeron in Burrows.

  • Words People thought it waas Stone Age, but plot twist.

  • Jamaar Chase.

  • Not exactly a juggernaut opponent, but that drive ended in Joe's first touchdown pass of the year to Jamaar Chase.

  • Spoiler alert.

  • He catch 19 Mawr Golden tickets just by himself during the season.

  • Joe spread it out from the get go, though going full you get a touchdown and you get a touchdown and you get a touchdown.

  • Tap dancing to the tune of five touchdown tosses in that game alone.

  • But fine.

  • I hear you.

  • What about when he played against?

  • Well, an actual viable opponent didn't take long against Texas.

  • But not everyone was convinced.

  • Who's your Heisman Trophy winner?

  • Jalen Borough to jump Joe Burrow?

  • We knew that everyone was gonna doubt it until they saw it against Florida, Auburn and Alabama the world had no choice but to believe.

  • After L S U ran through each of those teams, capped off by a hero's welcome for Borough in Baton Rouge.

  • When the Tiger's playing got back from Tuscaloosa, this is what snapping an eight game losing streak to Alabama looks like.

  • Sure, there were other incredible games, and we'll get to Senior Night against A and M in just a few.

  • But one of the remarkable things about this season was Burrows.

  • Consistent dominance before the college football playoff.

  • He'd already put up 4700 passing yards and 51 total touchdowns for the unbeaten Tigers, and Joe wasn't afraid to remind us all after the SEC championship that he knew it all along.

  • That red borough, that's e a u X.

  • It spoke to his connection with Baton Rouge, with Louisiana with Cajun culture and with the L S U community that bonded with their quarterback in such a palpable way.

  • My gosh, when I saw the other day with him walking out with Borough on the back and his mom and dad right there, just It's incredible.

  • Yeah, he threw three touchdowns in the game.

  • Yes, he tied the single season SEC record of 44 touchdown tosses that night, a record he eventually trampled all over by 16.

  • Yes, he also broke the L S U record for single season passing yards and touchdowns in that same game.

  • But that jersey, the single most viral moment in sports that night was what Borough was asked about.

  • Below was the early favorite, with Clemson's Trevor Lawrence right on his heels.

  • Lawrence struggled early in the season, and his candidacy took a small hit.

  • But in the meantime, Oklahoma's Jalen Hurts vaulted into the top spot with some incredible numbers in the Sooners offense that it produced back to back Heisman winners.

  • If defense is more your speed, Ohio State's Chase Young was showing off a level of dominance that had analysts telling me he was better than either of the Boaster brothers, who had each been top three NFL draft picks.

  • Young's teammates, quarterback Justin Fields, ultimately beat out two and Trevor to be a finalist.

  • By the time the trophy was handed out, there wasn't any mystery.

  • Joe Burrow locked up the Heisman and locked up.

  • Probably a top five draft pick in the NFL.

  • You'd like to say that you won't be emotional, but, honestly, who knows?

  • This is kind of a dream come true, so we'll see.

  • It's gonna be surprised to me to Burrow.

  • That's not a Heisman win.

  • That's Heisman history and a complete but woman.

  • Also fun fact.

  • If you think these battles are best settled on the field.

  • By the time Joe Burrow was a national champion, he defeated to a Hurts and Lawrence each head to head along the way.

  • Dominance for to the victor go the spoils and holy cow.

  • Did Joe get his way?

  • Already told you about the Heisman Records, he said.

  • And maybe the coolest moment of the Heisman ceremony was watching the always level in cool borough break down and be so really, I fully expected to win it.

  • But when you get up on the stage and realize the moment in the magnitude of this trophy and all the people that have helped me through, my journey just started flowing through my mind.
