The “D’Onta Foreman for Heisman” chatter has been getting louder each week in Austin, but it finally grew national legs after his 341-yard performance at Texas Tech last Saturday.
Foreman now leads the nation in rushing yards per game (180.8) and is second in total rushing yards despite missing the Longhorns’ game against UTEP. He’s now been featured in one Fox Sports expert’s top five and was seventh on ESPN’s most recent “Heisman Watch” list.
All that is fine and dandy, but what this campaign really needs is a trendy hashtag. What’s that you say? There already is one?
This week, Texas has started using “#HEISforeMAN” in it’s tweets about the star running back, including a video posted Wednesday morning. It’s clever, it’s catchy and it’s started gaining some traction.
