When it comes to the Heisman race, it’s hard for a player to do much to help his cause in the spring.
But, there are plenty of things a player can do to hurt his cause.
To illustrate, it looks like a pair of Oregon Ducks might have suffered mortal blows to their Heisman hopes. Even if they end up not being suspended for significant portions of the season, it is highly unlikely that Heisman voters will forgive the kind of thuggery (allegedly) committed by Jeremiah Masoli and (admittedly) commited by LaMichael James.
Heismandment No. 10 still stands–you can’t be a known jerk or social deviant and still win the Heisman.
