Heisman voter: It's time for transparency in the vote

Over at the Gainesville (Florida) Sun, Heisman voter Pat Dooley argues that it's about time for some transparency in the Heisman balloting.

You hear those of us in the media screaming from the top of the building that the coaches must have transparency when it comes to their poll. We won that battle finally, but shouldn’t the Heisman votes also be made available to anyone who wants to see them? I want to know the 43 people who voted Tim Tebow No. 1 on their ballots. I want to know which 538 people left Ndamukong Suh off their ballots and which two voted Golden Tate first.

I couldn't agree more. At a minimum, the Heisman Trust should reveal who the list of voters are.
