The fact that Deshaun Watson didn’t win the 2015 Heisman is a joke.

Even five years later, Clemson fans all over the country still can’t believe Deshaun Watson didn’t win the Heisman Trophy.

While the quarterback is now living the dream and starring for the Houston Texans, it doesn’t take away from the fact he was robbed. Looking back at the numbers, it’s downright infuriating and borderline criminal.

While donning a Clemson uniform for three seasons, Watson was sensational. His 2015 campaign, though, was simply out of this world. But it still was not good enough for him to be crowned the top player in college football?

The ACC Network made sure to remind everyone Watson was snubbed

For the season, the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder threw for 4,109 yards and 35 touchdowns. On the ground, he added 1,105 yards and 12 more scores. More than 5,200 total yards and 47 touchdowns? Those are video game numbers.

Even more stunning, Watson finished third in the voting that year. Derrick Henry won the Heisman with Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey coming in second place. McCaffrey has a pretty great case as an all-time Heisman snub too.

While both had world-class years, and have gone on to be playmakers in the NFL like Watson, there’s no denying the Clemson star deserved the honor.

Not only was he the best player in the country, but he was leading the Tigers and Dabo Swinney’s offense as a sophomore. Despite not having the experience of an upperclassman, Watson continued to embarrass opposing defenses week in and week out.

Unfortunately for Watson, he didn’t win the Heisman in 2016 either, with Lamar Jackson taking home that honor. Watson did get the last laugh, however, as Clemson took down Alabama in the National Championship Game later that winter.

Yes, Watson may have never won the Heisman while with the Tigers, but that won’t take away from his incredible time with Swinney. For his career, the Clemson legend threw for 10,168 yards and 90 touchdowns and added another 26 touchdowns on the ground.
