The college football world and Alabama fans are in shock right now.

Four finalists were chosen Monday for the Heisman Memorial Trophy presentation. The coveted bronze award that goes to the most outstanding player in college football will be presented Saturday in New York City. Bryce Young (Alabama), C.J. Stroud (Ohio State), Kenny Pickett (Pittsburgh), and Aiden Hutchinson (Michigan) are the finalists.

Three quarterbacks and a defensive lineman make up the group, but the best defensive player was left off. Will Anderson, a sophomore linebacker for Alabama, has been the most dominant defensive player in college football.

He leads the nation for sacks (15.5) and tackles for loss (31.5).

Anderson is the most impactful player in the sport; however, he is not a finalist for the Heisman.

Tide fans, current players, and college football reporters took to Twitter to voice the disappointment of Heisman voters.
