Help us track down the remaining votes.
So, which voters are we still missing? Out of the 926 Trophy voters, we know the identities of just over 600 of them. Of those, we've now tracked down the ballots of 226.
Here's the list of the nearly 400 people who we know are H------ Trophy voters (or, at minimum, were voters very recently) but for whom we don't yet have votes.
Start by using the power of Google. Dig around, look for blogs, twitter feeds, facebook pages, and - last but not least - email addresses. If you do contact one of these folks directly, please be polite. There's no point in arguing with them; the ballot deadline has come and gone, and they couldn't change their mind if they wanted to.
Also, if you're going to be helpful do three things: #1, list every vote you find (not just the ones you agree with; the point isn't to "win" the StiffArmTrophy projection, it's to get it right.) #2, list all three spots on the ballot. #3, state your source - if there's a link, provide it. We need to be able to confirm that these folks are ACTUAL voters, and not just folks talking about "my vote" as a hypothetical thing.
And remember, there's another 300+ voters whose identities are still secret. We'd love to track down a few of them - but we'll be especially careful to verify that they're really a voter.

His picks in Tuesday's paper.
eric crouch and johnny rodgers heisman winners
Rick Karle FOX 6 Sports Birmingham Alabama said last night that he is a voter & that he voted #1 Ingram.
Why does stiff arm say that Eddie George voted Gerhart number 1?? I heard him with my own ears say on CBS a couple of days ago that he voted Ingram in the top spot.
Eddie George did NOT vote Gerhart #1. He said he voted Ingram #1 but stiff Arm says that he voted Gerhart?? Whats up with that?!
Per video on ESPN.com
Kirk Herbstriet - Ingram
Mark May - Ingram
Todd McShay - Gerhart
Lou Holtz - McCoy (don't know if he has a vote or not but was part of the video)
On Harry King's vote, you have McCoy then Tebow. I emailed him and asked him who #3 was, and he said Suh.
Also, if you listed voters by state, it might help us track down who our local people are and listen/watch them on radio/tv and see what they say. That is a long list :)
Tim Cowlishaw is indeed a voter. And his blog says he voted for:
Yeah, Eddie George voted for Mark Ingram, yet you have him down for Toby Gerhart. If you've got the interview linked, I'm not sure how you could have missed this. Makes me question how accurate the whole 'big chart' is.
Here's the link to where Eddie George states he voted for Ingram... he says it about 35% of the way through the interview, FYI.
Ed Grisamore says that he has been a Heisman voter since 1994. He has not posted his vote that I can find. He works for the Macon Telegraph in Macon, GA. Http://www.Macon.com/194/story/930955.HTML
Phillip Marshall retired from the Huntsville Times last year in June. Of course, I have no idea if he still has a vote or not.
Spencer Tillman just stated on the radio in Birmingham that he voted
That differs from what you currently have for Spencer.
Tom Shatel, Omaha World Herald disclosed his Heisman Ballot: 1. Suh, 2. Ingram, 3. McCoy. Here's the link: http://www.omaha.com/article/20091207/SPORTS/712079847

Spencer Tillman said on 94.5 WJOX in Birmingham that you have his vote wrong. 1. Ingram 2. McCoy 3. Spiller
Jeff Shearer-WSFA Montgomery...says he is a voter, although I don't see him on your official list
Spencer Tillman was just on WJOX sports radio in Birmingham, AL.
He voted Ingram 1st and McCoy 2nd but didn't hear his 3rd Choice.
He was originally going to vote McCoy 1st but changed to make Ingram 1st.
Doug Harris of the Dayton Daily News announced his vote in the paper today:
I'm not the admin or anything but people...if the name you are submitting is not on the list above he either (A) already has it (likely) or (B) it isn't a confirmed voter he has on his list.
Adam Zuvanich of the Lubbock Avalanche Journal Stated that he is a voter this year. This is how he voted:
Yeah.....quit being so lazy people. If you really want to help, Check the list of voters that haven't been confirmed yet. If your info is not from someone on the list......keep it to yourself. Nobody has submitted anything new yet today.
Sam Kouvaris in Jacksonville, FL voted Tebow #1. Can't remember 2 and 3.
Spencer Tillman said he voted Ingram, McCoy and Spillman in that order
on WJOX 94.5 this morning.
C.J. McCarthy will reveal his on Friday...
Thanks Kirk. Some people are spending their workday on this site, and if I'm wasting my day looking here I at least want new info :)
"Spencer Tillman just stated on the radio in Birmingham that he voted
Agree heard him say samething on 94.5 talking to Jay Barker.
Tulsa World's Guerin Emig
In the end, I went with Ingram, Gerhart and Gilyard.
...hey everyone, someone just anounced Sam Bradford just won the heisman....LOL
On Dave Matter's twitter, he gave Suh his #1 vote (11PM, Dec 5th), and Ingram and Gerhart were on the ballot (8:55PM Dec. 5th)
Here's the link (lol): http://twitter.com/DMATTER
I don't see Ray Melick of the Birmingham News on your list of voters, he may be one previously unknown. In the link above he is a little vague on who he voted for but on Jox 94.5 yesterday he said his vote was
I heard the same thing RTR12 heard. Was on The Opening Drive on WJOX in Birmingham. Spencer was on the phone talking with the hosts, and he went
Sorry messed up the vote of Ray Melick, it was
Spencer Tillman said on JOX 94.5 this morning that he voted 1.Mark Ingram 2.Colt McCoy 3.CJ Spiller
To clarify the above post, Spencer Tillman said that before the championship games he publically stated that he was planning on voting McCoy one, but that it was very close. This morning he stated that after the championship games, he flipped McCoy and Ingram and voted Ingram number one.
Dan Bickley/Arizona Republic
Spencer Tillman just stated on JOX 94.5 in Birmingham that he voted
Paul Gattis of the Huntsville Times isn't publishing his vote due to Heisman rules.
Here's another voter:
Radio Host, Dunaway & Brown
690AM - Birmingham, AL
This was stated on their show and also posted to their twitter page (http://twitter.com/Dandbradio)
Eddie George said he voted for Toby on some rivals.com video.
Anyway, Monte Poole (not on the list) says he voted for Toby #1:
And I'm guessing Mark Whicker voted for Gerhart #1 too:
Here's another voter I didn't see:
Radio Host, Dunaway & Brown
690AM - Birmingham, AL
This was stated on their radio show and confirmed on their twitter page (http://twitter.com/Dandbradio).
dth Eddie George said he voted Ingram on that video but he thought that Gerhart might win.
http://twitter.com/Dandbradio is the correct link.
On the 12-7 ESPN-U College Football Podcast (at 14:30), Ivan Maisel and Pat Forde declared their ballots (with Ivan also mentioning Gene Wojciechowski's Ballot in a email):

Skip Bayless has (1) Suh
Spencer Tillman just stated on JOX 94.5 in Birmingham that he voted

2. Tim Tebow
3. CJ Spiller
Mark Brennan posted his votes on the Fight on State premium message board this morning:
I'd link the post, but if you're not a paying subscriber you can't see it.
Here is where Spencer Tillman just this morning stated that he voted Ingram #1, McCoy #2, and CJ Spiller #3. I think we need to tighten up the ballots we already have. That's both Eddie George and Spencer Tillman that have voted for Mark Ingram #1, and StiffArm has posted otherwide.
The Spencer Tillman interview this morning.
Mark Brennan gave us his list this morning
it is a pay site so not sure how else to verify it but here is the link
Tom Shatel, Omaha World Herald.
(that was going into the last weekend though)
Randy Kennedy, Sports Editor for the Mobile (AL) Press-Register is a voter. He voted 1 - Ingram, 2- McCoy, 3 - Suh. Mike Herndon, also of the Mobile Press-Register is a voter. His ballot ??. Also, I do not know if they are voters, but some folks worth investigating are Scott Hunter, Gentry Estes, and Don Kausler. Hunter has been a long-time sportscaster in the Mobile area (and he is an Alabama Alum). He stated on-air the other day (before the SEC Champ. game), that he would vote Ingram # 1. Estes is the Mobile Register Alabama beat reporter and he lives in Tuscaloosa. Kausler is the Alabama beat reporter for the Birmingham News. Hope these ideas help!!
Neal McCready no longer works for the Mobile Press in Mobile. The local radio station fired him from his afternoon sports radio show because he wasn't Pro Bama enough and he quit the Press Register. He now works for the Ole Miss Rivals website as their beat reporter.
Beano Cook on The Heard

Kevin Scarbinsky of The Birmingham News indicates he voted for:
1. Rolando McClain, Alabama.
2. Mark Ingram, Alabama.
3. Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska.
Beano Cook just told ESPN Radio he voted:
It's not concrete, but his article on December 7th did list his top 5:
No identity, but he seems like a voter.
Gerhart, Suh, Spiller, Ingram
Jeff Shearer - WSFA TV Montgomery, AL
I look at Gerhart and say wow! I am a tryed and true Alabama fan also. But I also look at Ingram and say wow! So in fairness and with the intent of unbias, I compared the numbers , not just the final numbers but actually looked into how those numbers were obtained. 1) Gerhart is the workhorse of his team (the star) so he gets 90 % of carrys, Ingram is a star among stars, he shares his carries with 2 sometimes 3 other running backs, But still puts up heisman numbers. 2)Ingram had some 60 carries less than Gerhart and is only 200 yards less. You factor his 6 plus yard per carry average and you can add at least 360 yards and given the stats go ahead and add 6 more td's. 3) For the first time that I know of you have a back in Ingram who more than 60% of his yards come after first contact. 4)Ingram is the best player on the best team in the country. Although Gerhart is awesome, he could not carry his team to a victory every time, Ingram however did on numerous occassions, without Ingram national championship is out for Bama. 5) Ingram had almost 200 total yards and 3 td's against the no1 defense in the nation in what was portrayed as the true national championship game. +++++++ I will not try too argue that the sec is harder or tougher because that is opinion and that is my opinion. But in being unbiased looking at the FACTS Ingram is the most deserving candidate according to the heisman guidelines as to what it represents. Also an intersting fact is that Vegas also has Ingram as the winner, they acurately picked Bradford as the heisman winner with the exact same odds, so unless they are willing to throw away millions of dollars then the heisman belongs to Ingram.
I don't know what it is, but I can guess:
3. No vote
Ignore my last post. The voter is Randy Powers.
Poole: Suh is close, but Heisman choice is Gerhart
So does anyone know who Spencer Tillman voted for? I haven't seen it posted in the comments yet.
Monte Poole. Gerhart #1. Suh not on.
Only about 10 post on who Tillman voted for this a.m., easier if you read.
mark may says mark ingram is his number 1
Are you at all concerned about systematic interference by the Heisman trust? They obviously are not a fan of your site, having threatened lawsuits and such - but I'm sure they want nothing more than for you to get it wrong.
Dan Patrick, on his Tuesday morning show said that the Heisman Trust had asked him not to make his vote public. If they are asking voters to not reveal their votes in a systematic way that would really distort your projection. Say they only asked voters who they know voted for the winning candidate in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic (the regions without top candidates and therefore with the fewest number of publicized votes).
Based on the small sample size you have for those regions my rough estimate is that they would only have to hide 5-10 known votes from each of those 2 regions if they were doing it strategically. Plus its easy for them to intimidate voters with a veiled (or not) threat of taking away their vote next year. All-in-all it'd be relatively easy for them to manipulate your projection given your transparent methodology.
While in retrospect it should be statistically easy to observe if this kind of manipulation was done (if your projections for those regions are way off), I'm not sure what, if anything, you can do to prevent this in advance.
Is this something you've thought about or observed in years past?
So I guess that We all know that Spencer Tillman voted Ingram 1st... We don't need the info anymore. I will keep you updated if he changes he's mind...LOL

ENOUGH WITH THE SPENCER TILLMAN VOTES!!!!
Mercury News San Jose Monte Poole
Did not pick Suh though he regrets it still thinks Toby should win.
Brad Edwards on Birmingham radio
Heath Kline (sp?) - radio guy in Columbia, SC (107.5 The Game) is a voter.. He said the other day that his three were McCoy, Ingram & Suh but he didn't say in what order he voted.
I didn't see him listed as one of the voters. He maintains that he is.
