Top 5 Heisman Blowouts

Top 5 Heisman Blowouts #1 OJ Simpson Sports ilustra University of Southern California 1968 What most people forget, is that before Simpson became an alleged murderer (yup, we still have to legally sprinkle an allegedly in front of it) and convicted Charge kidnapper, Simpson was one of the single greatest running backs in NCAA and NFL history. #2 Jason White University of Oklahoma 2003 He received the Heisman Trophy in 2003 after throwing 40 touchdown passes while collecting his first of two "Quarterback of the Year". White became one of the only modern winners of the award not to be selected, at all, by any team during the NFL Draft. Today, White is living the dream as a shoe store employee who has the ability to talk about the time he scored four touchdowns in a single game. SOOVERS 28 #3 Billy Cannon Louisiana State University 1959 As the 1959 Heisman trophy winner, Cannon was one of the most electric players in the nation while leading the LSU Tigers to their first ever National Championship. Cannon made several memorable plays, including an 89-yard punt return for a victory over the third-ranked Mississippi Rebels. In 1983, Cannon was caught with $50 million worth of counterfeit currency that he buried in his backyard. Ended up serving two-and-a-half years in a Federal Penitentiary and then became a dentist. #4 Andre Ware University of Houston 1989 He set all kinds of records while putting up 4,699 yards and 44 touchdowns. He was picked for the Detroit Lions but was out of the league within 48 months before Al Davis (the guy who saw potential in JaMarcus Russell) dismissed him. Played in Canada and Germany for a time after. Now is a college football sports broadcaster. #5 Rashaan Salaam University of Colorado 1994 During his career at Colorado, Salaam became one of the most successful backs in conference history. Was soon after selected by the Chicago Bears. Salaam narrowly missed becoming the next Walter Payton after leaving the NFL within 48 months before becoming, as his biography notes, "the fourth most prolific rusher in XFL History as a member of the Memphis Maniax." 2012 Top 5 Candidate's for the Heisman 2012 Season #1 Passing RAT YDS TD INT CMP% 167.4 2020 12 69.7 Rushing YOS TO YPC 748 19 4.9 Collin Klein QB (Kansas State) 2012 Season #2 Receiving REC YOS YPR TO 18 리 9 12.2 Rushing YOS TO YPC 1360 19 G.8 Kenjon Barner RB (Oregon) #3 2012 Season Passing RAT YDS TD INT CMP% 168.1 리 58 20 GG.0 Rushing YDS TO YPC AJ McCarron -43 -1.1 QB (Alabama) 2012 Season #4 Tackles TOT SOLO SACK 90 40 Interceptions INT YOS TD Б 35 Manti Te'o LB (Notre Dame) 2012 Season #5 Passing RAT YOS TO INT CMP% 140.1 1753 14 56.9 Rushing YOS TO YPC Braxton Miller QB (Ohio State) 11GG 13 6.3 textbook recycling Sources Salaam %23 %23
