Not that he had a chance of winning the Heisman this year, but another candidate has been officially eliminated from the race as Oklahoma State’s Dez Bryant has been ruled ineligible for violating an NCAA bylaw.
Bryant’s exit could have an interesting ripple effect. For one, it would seem to make an OSU upset of Texas a bit more of a longshot, thus helping Colt McCoy’s candidacy. Bryant was pulling 2 points in the last HeismanPundit.com Heisman Poll, so his support (meager as it was) will go elsewhere.
Also, it probably narrows the Biletnikoff Award field to Golden Tate, Eric Decker and A.J. Green.
