Jason White once won the Heisman Trophy over Larry Fitzgerald and Eli Manning. He also split the vote the next year with his freshman running back Adrian Peterson. He should be thankful that he was surrounded by so many truly great players and came away with some hardware. In one of the most bizarre ballots out there, White completely left off Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, who is expected to be the favorite entering Saturday’s ceremony.
Who did he put on instead? None other than Landry Jones.
Landry Jones- 3989 yards (7.9 YPA), 29 TD, 10 INT, 13 “rushes” for -103 yards
Johnny Manziel- 3419 yards (8.5 YPA) 24 TD, 9 INT, 184 rushes for 1181 yards, 19 TD
Oklahoma quarterbacks have to stick together, I guess.
