Some Things You Might Not Know
Posted Dec 10, 2006
Most college experts say that the Southeastern Conference is the best conference in college football, but did you know that only 5 SEC schools have produced Heisman Trophy winners. Georgia (2), Florida (2), Auburn (2), LSU (1) and South Carolina (1) are the only ones. I know South Carolina wasn't an SEC school when George Rogers won in 1980, but here is something that you might not know.
The SEC winners were...
Frank Sinkwich -
Billy Cannon -
Pat Sullivan -
Herschel Walker - Georgia (1982)
Bo Jackson - Auburn (1985)
Danny Wuerffel - Florida (1996)
Like I mentioned above there was also George Rogers.
Three schools have won 7 Heisman Trophies... Southern Cal,
... technically the Buckeyes have just have 6 winners... Archie Griffin won the award twice.
are the only schools in the top-10 in most wins that have had zero Heisman Trophy winners.
By the way, Georgia is 11th all-time in wins.
The conference with the most winners is the Big Ten conference has had 15 winners total. But if you want number irony... the Big 12 has 12 and Pac-10 has 10.
If you think the SEC is being mistreated in the Heisman Trophy... the SEC has only have had 2 Butkus Award (linebacker) wins. The award started in 1985 and Derrick Thomas won it in 1988 and this year
Even lower is the Bronko Nagurski (top defensive) Award. The award started in 1993 and
is the only winner. At least it was Champ.
would have been the first sophomore to win the award if he would have won. When Herschel was a sophomore he came in 2nd place behind Marcus Allen.
Speaking of Herschel, Herschel Walker was the first number 34 to win the Heisman... Bo Jackson and
also won it with that number.
Georgia has won its share of awards...
Before McFadden won it this year,
was the only SEC player to win the Doak Walker Award (running back).
They have 2 Maxwell Awards (outstanding football player). The 2 Awards are more than any other SEC school. Charley Trippi and Herschel Walker are the 2 winners.
Bill Stanfill won the Outland Trophy (interior lineman).
But, Mr. Award for Georgia should be
. Pollack won the...
Bednarik (top defensive)
Hendricks (defenisve end)
Lott (performance and ethics)
All of this happened in 2004.
