Teddy didn't do anything to lose the Heisman either. His numbers this year were superior to McCarron's but because his defense gave up 38 pts to UCF he was taken off every ballot the next day. He had to put up huge numbers this year to prove himself 'worthy' of the award because he plays in a smaller conference. He had no room for error when it came to the race.
His "error" was throwing for 341 yards and 2 TD's in "his" loss.
