POLL! Which individual football season was most deserving of a Heisman?

Drew Lock’s Heisman campaign is in full swing, so we’re looking back on past Heisman-worthy campaigns

Daniel point

As Pete has pointed out for two days in a row, Drew Lock’s Heisman campaign - and the personal #ProfileSZN that goes with it - is in full swing. Lock’s return to Columbia is generating a lot of hope among the Mizzou faithful, and the university is capitalizing on it by hyping that Lock could become the program’s first Heisman Trophy winner.

However, Lock isn’t the first player who’s ever had a Heisman-level season. For our weekly poll, we asked which player from Mizzou Football past was most worthy of college football’s highest individual honor.

The results were... overwhelming, to say the least:

The ensuing replies echoed the poll’s clear sentiment:

No arguments here, Mr. Bearded Ceramic Man.

While the argument probably isn’t as clear-cut as presented here, it does look like Daniel deserved more serious consideration more than a decade removed.

Well, technically you can vote against him. I mean, I did! But there’s no doubt Daniel was probably Mizzou’s best shot at the award so far this century.

Even though the Twitter poll has wrapped up, we still want to know: Which individual football season was most worthy of a Heisman Trophy?
