Notes from the Ceremony

  • Chris Fowler said there were 904 ballots returned this year - "a record number returned". Personally, I don't understand why you'd be a H------ Trophy voter and then fail to vote.

  • Also, he noted that two-thirds of the ballots had all three finalists in some particular order. Of the 211 ballots we had that had all three spots filled out, 164 had the three finalists and no one else -- roughly 77%.

  • Damn, Pete Dawkins is the man.

  • Tim Tebow for President? Yes, even though he was born in the Philippines, with American parents, he's still eligible as a "natural-born citizen". Just like John McCain.

Thanks to Stiff Arm for the acurate projections and observations. We are celebrating here in Soonerland.How deserving a young man Bradford is as would McCoy or Tebow would have been.I think all three will be rich young men and be playing on Sundays.Florida will be a tough match up as was Texas should be a great game.

Well, at least one voter is in prison. Doubt they would allow a convicted felon to vote.

This was the 50th anniversary of Pete Dawkins winning the Trophy. They mentioned that in addition to being the football team captain at Army, he was also the student body president and a Rhodes Scholar. Seriously badass. Oh, and later he became a Brigadier General.
