LIKE IT IS : No explanation for leaving Tebow off ballot

As expected, Tim Tebow took not winning the Heisman Trophy as well as anyone could, saying he guessed some people just hate the Florida Gators.
Of course that is true, but this wasn’t the first time an SEC quarterback has been snubbed by Heisman voters.
In 1997 Peyton Manning led the Tennessee Volunteers to the SEC championship with a 10-1 record, and on the final Saturday before the voting, Manning passed for four touchdowns to lead the Vols to a come-from-behind victory over Auburn, 30-29.
