Re: Heisman vs MVP
Funny, I was thinking about this (College MVP) just a couple of days ago, but mainly because the Heisman has become a QB award in recent years(only two RBs have won the Heisman since 1999).
Reminded me of the 1978 AL MVP - Ron Guidry was 25-3 with 200+ Ks and a sub-2.0 ERA for the Yankess that year and was considered the hands down favorite for the MVP . . . but Jim Rice lobbied hard and was ultimately successful in persuading voters that the MVP should go to an everyday player, esp since pitchers already had the Cy Young.
