One other interesting call by the conference SIDs…
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
Dak Prescott, QB, Miss. State
Runner-up: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
TOP HEISMAN CANDIDATE
Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
Runner-up: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
… seems like an incongruity, but really isn’t when you think about it. It’s a judgment that Chubb plays for a team that surrounds him with more talent than Prescott enjoys and is perceived to have a greater upside for success this season than does MSU.
With that in mind, voting Chubb second for league MVP is a helluva compliment. So is naming him the best blocking back in the SEC.

Leonard Fournette? Seriously? All he had to do was tell everybody that he was Heisman worthy? If only Todd Gurley had known it was that easy.
Anybody seen stats on improvement in ball security for running backs between freshman and sophomore years?
I don’t know, but chubb was darn good at it anyway. He had 2 (fla and tech). They were huge fumbles, but that ain’t many for all the times he carried it.
South Carolina ?
Don’t think he fumbled in Columbia. Only had a few carries.
One would assume that everybody concerned is working on that…reducing the number of carries per game would seem to be a good thing in that regard.
Chubb is a great kid, appears to have the potential to be a historically great back, here’s hoping.
Best running back since Hershel book it,,,,,,,
