The Heisman is awarded for many reasons. Reasons not necessarily clear, consistent, or entirely agreed upon.
Sometimes, players win on a two-, three-, or four-year body of work. Sometimes they represent a smaller part of a winning institution. And sometimes, they win because no one else is stepping up.

Maybe their selection was political; maybe it was controversial; or maybe it was just plain lazy. Either way, why these ten men own trophies is grounds for serious debate.
