Question about Heisman and Archie

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by Ginn4Heisman, Dec 9, 2004.

    Does Archie get to vote on 2 ballots since he won the Heisman twice?

    You sure about that Soldier? I had no idea if so...I do know there are 52 former winner votes counted this year. Not sure how many past winners have passed on...

    I would guess that this is a result of when the Downtown Athletic Club was in financial dire straits a while back, and Suzuki of America offered a ton of money as a corporate sponsor if fans could participate in the form of one vote. In fact, the Heisman website states, "In 1999, the American Suzuki Motor Corporation, as a major sponsor, developed a special program to allow the public at large to become part of the balloting process by permitting one (1) fan vote eligible in the overall tabulation. This program continues in 2004, bringing the total number of voters for the 2004 Heisman race to 923." I doubt very seriously if that one fan vote will affect the outcome.

    Personally I think its cool that a fan can vote on the Heisman. I know I would love to vote and be part of the history of voting for a Heisman.


    I hope I can be the fan next year!

    Isn't it one "fan vote", not "one fan" vote? I'm pretty sure it's a vote determined by a poll at www.voteheisman.com:

    "As the presenting sponsor of the Heisman Trophy, American Suzuki Motor Corporation will be casting one official vote for the winner of the Heisman Trophy based on your votes."

    Archie Only Votes ONCE on Heisman

    Perhaps I am being cotrarian today.

    My take on the Heisman vote count is NO second vote for Archie.

    The Heisman site quotes thus:
    Here is a list of the 52 living prior Heisman trophy winners.

    Unless one of the old warriors has gone to meet his maker these 52 - with the 870 media "experts" plus Joe Six-Packs one collective vote constitutes the 923 total votes counted. If Archie got 2 bites at the cherry it'd be 924 votes total.

    Interestingly - no-one knows who the 870 "experts" are, though the advisory group includes some likely candidates.

    AHHHH

    I see. I didnt even know they did that. But I'm kind of slow to begin with...lol:)


    Well that's still kind of cool. We all can hit that site up all the time next year and vote for Ginn

    I came to this same conclusion based on a particular formula that I use to help me make a decision as to whether something is true or not. Although my formula does not require ANY facts it does allow for me to change the resulting answer as many times as necessary to end up with an answer that duplicates, in the end, whatever turns out to be the right answer!

    Sandgk, that's how I took it as well but I can see both arguments. When everyone was answering so matter-of-factly, I figured I was eating dumbass sandwiches again:roll2:

    We need some confirmation here...someone call 1460
