Roberto Aguayo Didn't Win This Year's Lou Groza Award For Best Kicker, And #FSUTwitter Is Furious

Tonight's College Football Awards didn't wind up being all that suspenseful. Marcus Mariota cleaned up, winning the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien, and Maxwell Awards. Melvin Gordon won the Doak Walker, Amari Cooper the Biletnikoff, and Scooby Wright the Bednarik Award. There was one shocker in a category that seemed like it was just as clear cut as any of those awards. Maryland's Brad Craddock, and not Florida State's Roberto Aguayo, took home the Lou Groza Award for best kicker. In less shocking news, Florida State fans on Twitter were not happy about it.

">@LouGrozaAward, but Aguayo's 53-yarder vs MIA down 6 with 7 mins to go was bigger than any kick Craddock made this year. #Noles

No offense, @LouGrozaAward, but Aguayo's 53-yarder vs MIA down 6 with 7 mins to go was bigger than any kick Craddock made this year. #Noles

Aguayo, the defending Groza winner, is 25-for-27 this season, and a perfect 53-for-53 on extra points. He is also 3-for-3 on kicks of 50+ yards. Craddock is 18-for-19 and is also perfect on extra points, connection on 41. Both are great kickers, but it was certainly surprising to see someone other than Aguayo take home the hardware.
