The Alabama Heisman curse seems to be rearing its ugly head.
Mark Ingram’s hopes for the trophy took a major hit today, as he rushed for just 32 yards on 16 carries against Auburn. The Tide pulled out the game, but he was a complete non-factor in the dramatic win and now he might even be hurt heading into the SEC title game.
It will take a huge performance against Florida combined with a Colt McCoy tank against Nebraska for Ingram to jump back on top of this contest. And even then, I think we are looking at a squeaker of a race.
As it now stands, McCoy is the strong favorite to capture the 2009 Heisman Trophy.
