Joe Starkey is the play-by-play broadcaster for Cal football on KGO radio 810 in San Francisco. On the final Cal broadcast (the Cal-UW game on 12/5/09), he announced that he was an official Heisman voter, and he was voting for Toby Gerhart (he didn't say who he was voting #2 or #3).

Posted by: Tim Koehler | Dec 7, 2009 11:41:29 AM

John Rhode of The Oklahoman:

Here’s who DID get my votes:

1. RB Toby Gerhart (Stanford): Tough as nails. Led the country in scoring with 26 touchdowns. Ten 100-yards games. Three 200-yard games. Has 311 carries so far and will likely carry 30-plus times against OU in the Sun Bowl. A stud.

2. DT Ndamukong Suh (Nebraska): If ever there was a time a defender should win the Heisman, this was the season and this was the player. Unfortunately, Midwest bias won’t be nearly enough for a boy named Suh to win the award, but he deserves to be on every ballot.

3. RB Mark Ingram (Alabama): The Crimson Tide, believe it or not, never has had a Heisman Trophy winner and it appears Ingram will fall just short this season. He averaged 6.2 yards-per-carry against the nation’s toughest defenses. There is hope Alabama won’t be shut out next year. Ingram is only a sophomore.

From voter Kevin Kugler's (1620 the Zone, Omaha, NE) Facebook

Kevin Kugler has guaranteed that Ndamukong Suh has at least one first place vote for the Heisman. His consistent dominance pushed him over Ingram and McCoy, IMO.

You may already have this, but Gene Menez at SI.com went 1) Suh; 2) Ingram; 3) Gerhart

Posted by: John | Dec 7, 2009 12:26:08 PM

SI's Menez picks Suh

Posted by: Caleb | Dec 7, 2009 12:28:00 PM

At the end of the Texas/Nebraska game, Kirk went over his Heisman picks and implied that he had Ingram and Gerhart as his top two. (Said that "their stock was up.") He then gave Ingram the slight edge. He said that he expected Suh "to be the #3 choice on a lot of ballots," and I assume he meant his as well. He said that both McCoy and Tebow had had a chance to make their case, but didn't capitalize on it.

I still have the video if you need the exact language he used.
