Blake Corum not focusing on Heisman numbers, potential accolades this season
Blake Corum is having a tremendous season for the Michigan Wolverines.
The star running back has rushed for 901 yards and 13 touchdowns on 146 attempts. Moreover, he has logged 124 yards or more on the ground over his last four games. Yet, Corum doesn’t sound concerned about any postseason awards that might come of it (Via On3 Sports).
“I honestly don’t care, that’s the truth.” said Corum. “If it comes it comes, if it dosen’t it doesn’t.”
Corum’s numbers are a huge reason why Michigan is 7-0 this season. With sophomore J.J. McCarthy at quarterback, he has helped stabilize some concerns about the Michigan offense.
666 of Corum’s 901 yards have come in conference play. Corum rushed for 166 yards and 2 touchdowns on 28 attempts in a 41-17 blowout over Penn State in his last game.
“I’m all about winning, I’m all about getting my team better and really just week to week I know if we keep doing what we’re doing and I handle my business there might be an opportunity for me at the end of the year to reach those goals,” Corum explained. “But as of right now we have five games left.”
Corum’s accolades might come down to a game against Ohio State. A big showing from him against the Buckeyes could have the Heisman folks calling.
