    Maier, UCD, pure numbers and the football team is very good this year. Seems to be head and shoulders above the rest.

    I like Christion over Maier by a hair right now. Better rushing numbers plus a higher pass efficiency rating (overall numbers are less due to 165 less pass attempts on the year than Maier).

    Of course last year that didn't really work with Briscoe vs Streveler so my vote is probably more along the lines of what they should do rather than what they will do.

    The Payton should be the best player, not the best stats, but since it is usually the best stats, I feel like the voters will choose Maier. So that's why I went with him.

    He has not just the stats, but he also has the results.

    The argument can certainly be made that Maier both has the best stats, and is the best player this season.

    I feel like the best player was either Jaquan Keys, Taryn Christon, Tom Flacco, Jake Maier, and/or Devlin Hodges.

    I have seen Maier play multiple games this year, he came to play against ISUo, but I don't know if he is the best player or somewhat of a benefactor of Keelan Doss being the best WR in the FCS (yes I know Stewart is good too) with the next two players behind Doss almost equaling Doss's stats alone. If Maier wins it, he will truly earn it and I will be proud of him, but I feel like the other 4 I listed, are just as good if not better. (At least we won't have a 2nd helping of Streveler being stiffed this year).

    Re: Who will win the Walter Payton Award?

    The only knock I can find on Maier is his 6.98 yards per pass attempt. That's pretty average as it stands at 55th in the FCS. Christion is at 9.05 yards per pass attempt. Easton Stick is 9.09 yards per pass attempt. Lovett is at 8.24 and Flacco is at 7.76. Because of that's he's down at 24th in pass efficiency nationally.

    You can claim that's normal for a volume passing offense like UC Davis runs but Samford runs a similar offense and Hodges averages 8.12 yards per pass attempt.
