Arizona Wildcats running back Ka’Deem Carey received two first-place votes on the 900 ballots that were cast for the Heisman Trophy.
So who had Carey No. 1?
The Heisman doesn’t release individual ballots, but voters are free to talk about their choices (although the committee strongly suggests waiting until after the ceremony to do so).
Now we know the identity of the one of the voters who put Carey at the top: Former Nebraska quarterback and 2001 Heisman winner Eric Crouch.
He told the Dan Patrick radio show Monday morning that he had Carey, followed by Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota on his ballot. Some Pac-12 love right there.
Carey finished 10th in the Heisman voting. Mariota was not in the top 10.
Crouch is getting some heat for leaving off the winner, Florida State’s Jameis Winston, because, he said, of some of the “unknown” regarding the sexual assault allegations against him (no charges were filed). Carey, after last season, faced misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct charges from an alleged domestic violence incident. Charges were dropped this summer.
Anybody seen who else voted Carey at No. 1?
