Stiff Arm Trophy

Heisman Projection: First numbers, 34 ballots

Posted by Kari Chisholm on December 5, 2011 in News.

Well, folks, it's time to release our first batch of numbers. We are a long, long way from having a complete projection - so hang tight, we'll have a big explosion of numbers today since the deadline is tonight. (Last year, we had 217 ballots tracked, and 313 in 2009.)

For the tenth year in a row, we're going to attempt to project the outcome of the greatest individual award in sports, the Heisman Trophy. We've been right nine out of nine years.

But to do this, we need your help. If you read/see/hear someone identify themselves as an official voter (with or without their vote), post a comment on our voter tips line, share a note on our Facebook wall, or send us a note on Twitter (@stiffarmtrophy). If possible, provide a link (or at least tell us where you saw/heard/read it.)
