Common lore amongst Husker fans is that Eddie George's 1995 Heisman win over Tommie Frazier was a giant screw job. Frazier's career doesn't need an introduction to Husker fans - he's still arguably the best player in Husker history.
At least Frazier finished second. Despite being the best defensive player of his generation, Ndamukong Suh finished fourth in the 2009 Heisman voting behing Alabama running back Mark Ingram, Stanford running back Toby Gerhart and Texas quarterback Colt McCoy.
You've seen the videos of their best plays a thousand times, so I'm not going to bother with any of them on this post.
LIKE HELL I'M NOT! These things never get old, especially in July!
Below are the top five voting totals from the 2009 and 1995 Heisman Trophy, taken from sports-reference.com.
