Defense still wins Championships
On PTI today they discussed Carson Palmer's Heisman votes. Apparently his ballot looked like this:
1. Leinart
2. Bush
3. Jarrett

They basically said he voted for the other 2 guys just to ensure that no other "real" contenders got unnecessary votes that would hurt Leinart and/or Bush. I know there's such a thing as team spirit, but this is ridiculous!

That'd be like Archie voting for Ted, AJ, and Nuge.


EDIT: Sorry for watching E$PN programming. Please do not ban me, I promise it was an accident!

I hope leinart wins. He deserves it. anything to keep Jason White from getting two in a row is good.

I think they should take voting rights away from people who don't do justice to the system. They have an obligation to vote without personal bias. I wouldn't mind him having Matt and Reggie 1-2...but the Jarrett vote shows no class.

I'm sure that Archie didn't vote for Eddie or Orlando Pace either.

...and I said I had no problem with him voting two deserving candidates 1 and 2 on his ballot didn't I?

Archie most likely didn't vote Eddie, Glenn & Hoying 1-2-3 just to take votes away from Frazier. You have an obligation to college football to vote for the best three players...if you don't, the trophy is a joke.

Uh, why wouldn't have Archie have voted for either of those two? Does he tell the media who he votes for?

Incidently, Eddie voted for Charles Woodson...he admitted it and took the heat....from Tennessee fans who wanted him to vote for Peyton Manning. :lol:

A rather bogus 3rd place vote. He could have kept his credibity by voting Arrington third, which would show Pac-10 loyalty, and not hurt Leinart and Bush, since Arrington had no shot at the top 3 spots, despite being very deserving.

In my opinion the award is already a joke. The best player hasn't won the award in a few years. Wasn't Larry Fitzgerald the best player last year? Eric Crouch in 2001?

I do see what you are saying with regards to Jarrett. I don't see a problem with him voting for Leinart and Bush though. If they don't want voters do that sort of thing they should limit the ballot to the finalists, then it would be impossible for someone to vote for Jarrett.
