Tennessee fans and the college football world were shocked when Hendon Hooker was not chosen as one of the four finalists for the Heisman Trophy Monday night. Hooker was the favorite to win the award entering November but even after tearing his ACL, the senior quarterback seemed to be a lock to be in New York City as a finalist.

Hooker had an incredible 2022 season, completing 70% of passes for 3,135 yards, 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. The North Carolina native added 430 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.

Take a look at how the college football world reacted to Hooker’s exclusion as a finalist.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter

I love Stetson Bennett’s story and he is a hell of a quarterback who’s probably going to win two national championships. But who is voting for him over Bryce Young and Hendon Hooker for the Heisman?

Hendon Hooker being the best player in America for two-thirds of the season and not even getting invited to NYC is crazy.

What even is this award anymore?

Heisman voters not sending Hendon Hooker and Blake Corum to New York is an absolute joke.

Heisman finalists are announced: Caleb Williams, Max Duggan, Stetson Bennett and CJ Stroud

Happy for those four – but it’s an absolute EMBARRASSMENT that Hendon Hooker and Blake Corum didn’t get invited to the ceremony

Why is Stetson Bennett a top 4 #Heisman finalist? He has a cool name for sure, but Hendon Hooker is far more deserving no?
