Ex-FSU RB: Cook not being Heisman finalist would be ‘a joke’


Florida State sophomore running back Dalvin Cook has turned a lot of heads this season, particularly in that he set the school record for most rushing yards in a single season. But he still isn’t much of a factor in the race for the Heisman Trophy, and one former Seminole isn’t OK with that.

Former FSU running back James Wilder Jr. took to Twitter and voiced just how he would feel if Cook was not invited to the Heisman ceremony next month.


Granted, Cook has had a good season to the tune of 1,475 yards and 16 touchdowns, but hasn’t received enough national attention on the same level as Alabama running back Derrick Henry, otherwise known as an army tank in a football uniform.

Cook deserves his due credit, but also hasn’t been nearly as valuable to his team as Henry.

Throw in fine seasons from Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, and Cook’s odds are looking slimmer and slimmer.

Sorry, Mr. Wilder, but you’d better get that NCAA protest ready.
