Yesterday, our Bud Elliott outlined some of the reasons that Florida State running back Dalvin Cook may not have garnered the sufficient votes to earn a trip to New York City for the 2016 Heisman Trophy presentation.

In fact, Cook’s exclusion from consideration for the country’s top individual award has been lamented by numerous media members who cover the national stage. I’ve included a few of them below, because after your family’s Thanksgiving visit, you’re probably already angry enough and could handle seeing that not everyone else thinks you’re crazy:
