Everyone expected a tight vote for this year's Heisman Trophy. The closest race ever did unfold with Alabama's Mark Ingram pocketing the most prestigious of college football awards. He did so by a razor-thin margin (28 points) over Stanford's Toby Gerhart. It marks the Crimson Tide's first-ever Heisman winner, a surprise considering the Tide's illustrious history. I have only one problem with Ingram's crowning. He is not the best player on his own team. Defensive lineman Terrance Cody owns that distinction hands down. The Heisman winner signifies the nation's premier collegiate player for that season. So I have a major issue with Ingram taking home the hardware. The nation's best player cannot be the second best on his team. The voters who backed Ingram dropped the ball.
