Heisman Trophy notebook: Three candidates made for a tough ballot

/> Among the top-10 Heisman finishers with first-place votes: Texas quarterback Graham Harrell (13 first-place votes), Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree (3), Iowa running back Shonn Greene (5), West Virginia quarterback Pat White (3), Southern California linebacker Ray Maualuga (2) and Michigan State running back Javon Ringer (1) all received first-place votes.

Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla said he voted Oklahoma State QB Zac Robinson No. 1, though the result wasn't included in the report because Robinson didn't finish in the top 10 of the overall voting.

I love this Heisman Trophy

Bradford, McCoy and Tebow learned this week they had something in common besides football: they all love country music.

ESPN's Heisman telecast listed Bradford's favorite country music artists as Oklahoma native Garth Brooks and Kenny Chesney.

OU booster and country music star Toby Keith, however, didn't make the cut.

Heisman reunion

Twenty-six Heisman winners attended the presentation Saturday.

That figure included Sooner Heisman winners Steve Owens (1969), Billy Sims (1978) and Jason White (2003).

Former Sooner running back Billy Vessels, who won the Heisman in 1952, died in 2001.

A barrier no more

Last year, Tebow broke new ground as the first sophomore to win the Heisman.

Saturday, Bradford made it two sophomore Heisman winners.
