Say what you will, I have my opinion, you have yours. If Chris was so much better, why did Major come in and outplay him. Why did he start and dominate the Holiday Bowl. Huh, I don't know either, but I have my suspicions. Applewhite having the helicopter dad is laughable without evidence.
You are entitled to your opinion, but not your own facts. You claimed that Applewhite basically played with no one, but Simms did. The lunacy of this is that their careers at Texas overlapped a bit, so they played with many of the same dudes. But only one of them played with a real heisman (before it became worthless) trophy winner.
Yes, on occasion Simms as out played by Major. You also forget/ignore that Simms out played Major. For example, Simms was replaced by Applewhite for the bonfire game, and manufactured 0 points, and fumbled the game to a loss. Applewhite could play, but he wasn't walking on water in spite of what the remnants of Heaven's Gate thought. 22-8 < 26-6 And again, you have not addressed that Major had multiple season-ending injuries while Simms did not (at Texas).
Lastly, in the interview Simms stated Applewhite had a helicopter dad. There is little reason to doubt his honesty. We all heard rumors that it was Simms dad that was trying to force playing time for his kid for years when he was on campus. Yet, Simms clearly stated his dad hardly ever got involved with his son's playing or went to his games. Simms heard the rumors and addressed that in the video above.
