Toby Gerhart finishes second to Mark Ingram in the closest ever Heisman vote. Both were deserving of the award, but you have to figure that some voters preferred Ingram because football is a team sport and Ingram helped his team win more games.

Congratulations on a great season, Toby. Best wishes next year, even if you don't stay at Stanford. But with Jim Harbaugh coming back next year, why not you to?

The first Heisman to a school that boasts one of the richest histories in college football.

Alabama has always played football as a team sport, not like golf.

Gerhart did very well placing second

If Gerhart received the Doak Walker award as the best running back in the country, how is it that he was beaten in the Heisman award by another running back?

Can someone say "East Coast Bias"?
