Sanders Deserved Just What He Got

December 10, 1988

It is my understanding that the Heisman Trophy is given to the best college football player, not the best pro prospect. To imply that Barry Sanders doesn't deserve the trophy because his team played some very bad teams (Jim Murray's column, Dec. 2) is ludicrous.

Sanders may have gotten a lot of his yards against inferior teams, but he also had great games against Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado and Texas A&M. He was truly outstanding. He deserves the award. Please don't demean his receiving of it.
