....that will mean three of the last four Heisman Trophy winners have come from the SEC West Division. Insane.
Winning three out of four from the same conference has only happened four other times.
The SEC in 07, 09, and 2010. USC did it by themselves in 02, 04, and 05. And the Pac-12 did it (courtesy of USC again) in 65 (USC), 67 (UCLA), and 68 (USC). (that streak was interrupted in 1966 by the Ole Ball Coach). The Pac-12 also did it 67 (UCLA), 68 (USC), and 70 (Stanford).
But now that we have conference divisions....it's insane to think three of four will come from the same HALF of a conference.
I also noticed that three of the last four Heisman Trophy winners played some college football within about 100 miles of each other in south-central Texas (Waco, Brenham, and College Station).
I also noticed that the last two in a row played high school football within 125 miles of each other (Kerrville, TX and Copperas Cove, TX), and college football within 95 miles of each other.
PS. I'm not from Texas, so I'm not pointing it out because they are from Texas. I just thought it was interesting, and would be just as interesting if they were from New Mexico or Maryland.
