Justin Blackmon - Arrested for a DUI during this season.
And the guy who may or may not of known about money his dad took is the one who's lack of integrity warrants being left off a Heisman ballott. Ummm....okay. Something doesn't seem right here. Some people need to get off their moral high-ground, turn off ESPN and look at the facts.
There is a substantial difference between Newton and everyone else in the conversation. When Newton is found out and it will happen, he will not be eligible this season and as a result will not be eligible for the Heisman.
The comparisons are completely and totally inconsequential. O.J. Simpson is still a recognized Heisman winner. Reggie Bush is not.
