Mark Ingram- 2010 Heisman Favorite?

10

3. Mark Ingram, RB Alabama Why He Might Win It: The reigning Heisman winner will once again be the signature star on a veteran offense. Already considered a top ten overall NFL prospect, he has the talent, he has the line in front of him, and he has the No. 1 team in the nation going into the season. Always playing big in the big games, he gets a chance to showcase his talent against Penn State, at Arkansas, at hope against Florida, and at LSU in national spotlight games. Why He Won’t Win It: Besides having a mega-talent in Trent Richardson taking away some of the carries, and with a bit more of an emphasis on the passing game, Ingram has some barriers, but his biggest problem is going to be himself. Heisman voters have a huge bias against former winners and have no interest in voting anyone into the Archie Griffin legendary status (as Tebow, Matt Leinart, and Jason White recently found out). There’s a huge bias against former winners, and unless Ingram is amazing and there are no other viable options, unfairly, there will be a hard ceiling he’ll bump against.
