Time to offer a big thank you to the Heisman Trophy Trust.
As a condition to continue to vote for the award that goes to college football’s top player, balloters now are under orders not to reveal their votes before the announcement.
“Disclosure of votes prior to the announcement,” William Dockery of the Heisman Trust wrote, “possesses the potential to not only compromise the integrity of the selection process by possibly influencing other voters, but also to deprive the public of the traditional suspense and debate.”
Sure, the Interweb world will still conduct its worthless weekly Heisman polls. At least now it will stop the incessant bombardment of voters with emails begging to know who they picked.
As a longtime Heisman voter, I say thank you, thank you, thank you.
