Robert Griffin III has captured the hearts of the college football world, welcoming in the new season with an absolute spanking of TCU thus far. Griffin is other-worldly, carving up the Horned Frogs defense and giving the Bears a 47-23 lead in the third quarter. He's playing a video game on rookie and making it look so, so easy.
First, the measurables: 17-20 for 327 yards and five touchdowns. Again, it's the third quarter and this is the TCU defense. This doesn't happen to the TCU defense. And this isn't Griffin running around and making plays with his feet, either -- the Baylor quarterback is throwing an absolutely beautiful ball, especially on deep routes.
Kendall Wright and Terrance Williams have been all too happy to take advantage of Griffin's prolific display. Wright has 10 catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns while Williams has four catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns. Not to belabor the point any further, but words can't express how well Griffin is passing.
Whatever, let's just start this now: Robert Griffin III for Heisman. I don't care that it's Week 1, just hand him the trophy for the endless entertainment he's brought to America this evening.*
*Yes this is extreme hyperbole and we're not even ashamed of it.
