There are 55 living Heisman winners with votes that need to be cast by the Dec. 7 Heisman voting deadline.
It’s always fun to speculate how the past winners will vote.
I think a lot of former running back winners–everyone from Bo Jackson to George Rogers to Eddie George–will be psyched to vote for Mark Ingram.
Of course, Tim Tebow can count on at least two votes from past Gator winners. But will he vote for himself?
Colt McCoy will get votes from Ricky Williams and Earl Campbell. But he also might get support from the likes of Jason White, Sam Bradford and Eric Crouch–all former Big 12 quarterback winners.
There are 11 living Heisman winners from the West Coast. Most of them will probably go with Pac-10 candidates like Gerhart and Jacquizz Rodgers, though Reggie Bush might see a little bit of himself in C.J. Spiller.
All purpose whizzes like Desmond Howard, Tim Brown and Johnny Rodgers could also go for Spiller.
In a tight race, the votes of the former winners could be crucial.
