    How in the hell did I lose the Heisman?!?

    Between the 3 ODs that I've played in I played 15 seasons combined and I have played 10 seasons in my offline dynasty and I've never won a Heisman trophy (but at least I've won 5 National Championships in those 25 seasons). This year was easily by best opportunity to win a Heisman and I lose out to PSU's WR and I'm asking you guys why in the hell did that happen. Here are their stats (which don't even seem like they're in the same ballpark to me, but maybe I'm just being a Homer).

    PSU's WR:
    REC YDS YPR TD YPG DROPS PUNT RTN PR YDS PR AVG
    56 1167 20.8 14 97.3 14 11 33 3.0


    Mich's HB:
    CAR YDS YPC YPG TDS 20+ BTK FUM REC YDS YPR TDS YPG DROPS KR KRY KRA PR PRY PRA
    207 1705 8.2 142.1 28 22 17 5 17 294 17.3 1 24.5 0 9 206 22.9 12 138 11.5


    So, they both returned some kicks/punts and my guy had over 10 times as many yards and a much better average on punt returns. My guy had 294 receiving yards and a TD while averaging 17 yards per reception while the PSU guy had 0 rushes, so again, my guy dominates PSU's guy for the secondary stats.

    Now let's compare the primary stats. My guy had more than 50 percent more yards than his. His guy had a great 20.8 yards per reception while my guy had a ridonkulous 8.2 yards per carry. On top of this, my guy had twice as many TDs as his guy! (plus the 1 receiving TD as well) As far as I can tell, the only category that his guy has the advantage is that his team is ranked 3 places higher than mine, won 1 more game than mine, and beat my team.

    Did his guy win the Heisman because his team won the Big 10 and had 1 more win than me despite having much, much fewer yards and TDs or am I missing something else?

    You lost because the heisman logic in the game weighs receiving stats way too heavily. In C2C I lost the heisman with my Texas HB (who broke the single season rushing TD record) to a WR who everyone agreed shouldn't have won.

    WR always wins the Heisman. My QB lead it the majority of the year and doesn't play for one game and loses. Heisman logic is really screwed up in this game.

    Your guy didn't win because he was injured. This is a bug that existed in '09 and carried over to '10. Your guy could put up 10,000 passing yards and 150 TDs, but if he's injured when they do the vote, he'll get no votes (I'm sure you noticed your guy didn't even make the top 5).

    Hm I never knew that but I figured the injury is what did him in. I would have still lost to a WR lol.

    That's funny as hell, that's my first Heisman in an OD... I never look at the Heisman race, so I didn't even know I was in the running for it. :D
