Why it doesn’t matter whether or not Georgia’s Todd Gurley wins the Heisman

Why it doesn’t matter whether or not Georgia’s Todd Gurley wins the Heisman

In my lifetime I have never had the pleasure of watching a Georgia Bulldog win a Heisman Trophy.

Since when were Vandy fans so obnoxious? I guess I never knew since we rarely lost to them.

It was not a big surprise to me though. I…
