I wouldn't. It never really seems that the best "player" wins the award. It is whose team is the best and also who got the most publicity. I would say there are more busts than great players who win the heisman. Also, just b/c you are successful in College doesn't mean you will be in the pros
Ask any Florida Gator QB about that last statement .
Seriously, I figured the number would be higher than 8 but not that much higher. I've seen enough Heisman winners bust in my lifetime to know not many of them turn out to be great pros.
Ask any UF offensive player that played under Spurrier
Spurrier - ya mean that Heisman winner the Gators turned out in 1966??? Whatever became of him?
In 1976 he was the starting QB for the Bucs who didn't win a game. Beat that!
I am too young to remember that; I simply remember him as the constantly red faced coach of some terrible redskins teams.
