They don’t like rewarding the Heisman Trophy to people who do what they were expected to do. It doesn’t go to solid, consistent performers. It goes to flashy superstars. It goes to the guys who shock the world with almost above-human performances time and time again. It goes to guys that everybody has been amazed by and enamored with. It goes to legendary performers who leave lasting memories for decades to come. I dare say that this is the problem for both Ingram and McCoy – this year there just isn’t enough of a national love affair with these guys. So who are we in love with? Who shocked and amazed us?

“You see, Ohio State backup quarterbacks Rob Schoenhoft and Antonio Henton transferred last year, leaving Pryor, senior Todd Boeckman, and 26-year-old ex-minor-league-baseball-player and walk-on Joe Bauserman the only quarterbacks on the roster.
