Progressives Not Complaining About the Heisman Anymore

The sports pages read like any other section of the paper now with the pushing of approved narratives in between box scores and game recaps. Ray Rice picked the wrong year to punch his wife. Adrian Peterson picked the wrong year to beat his kid with a switch. In another year, they would have returned to the field. In War on Women progressive hysteria, they are sitting at home, suspended without pay. We know this because there are players playing today who did far worse off the field. A common refrain in the 2000s was that the Heisman trophy had become a quarterbacks award. This peaked in 2009, as sports media was a bit worried that, gosh, it would go to Colt McCoy, quarterback of the University of Texas. The complaints have died down. Why might that have changed? Let's take a look at winners.

Here are the quarterbacks who won the Heisman from 2000-2008. Rather than post pictures, I'll break it down by race.

In 2009, a running back won the award, breaking the streak. A new streak started though of quarterbacks winning the award in 2010, and it is ongoing with the win last weekend by Marcus Mariota.

Here are the quarterbacks who won the Heisman from 2010 to this year. Once again, let's break it down by race.

Notice anything different? The media, including pre-game show hosts now do not care if the winner is a quarterback because the winning quarterbacks look a bit different. For some odd reason, the Heisman going to running backs only between 1972 and 1983 was not a problem (all blacks and one white). Starting in the '80s, the college game developed better passing offenses that put up staggering numbers, and voters took notice. A further shift has occurred where teams have transitioned more to "spread offenses". Some spread offenses are "option read" that often employ a quarterback who has the option to run but starts from a shotgun position.


In essence, they brought the old option back but in a passing formation. The option read spread offense values a different skill set than pure passing spread offenses. Quarterbacks needed to run more in these new offenses, and because of diluted defensive talent, the running quarterback is more effective in the college game. To use a progressive buzzword, these offenses are more inclusive. This allows for the "general" of the offense to look a little different and rack up amazing numbers. If their team has a tremendous season, the voters will want to reward who they think has been the key to that contender's situation. Thankfully now for progressive sports reporters, they can vote for quarterbacks without feeling any pangs of white guilt.

When are you going to kill everyone who tries to prevent you from having a country of your own?

Don't you have one already, your home country of Poland?

And remember the last winner was a black male accused of raping a blond White girl.

Unfortunately SOBL can't call Poland his home, so my leaving won't do him any good.

Yeah and Canada hasenough Asians that I might as well move to Japan. Scotland and France have enough Moslems, and England is a lost cause.

If only they were all Japanese! Instead it's hordes and hordes of crass Chinese and Indians and Filipinos. Canada is really just as doomed as the US, only it will take them slightly longer to get there. At 14.2% Asian (as always, assume the official number is way lower than the real number) they're probably already at a tipping point of permanent cultural debasement.
