When it’s all said and done, Heisman Trophy winners are elevated to another stratosphere in college football.

Every season, the award is handed to the one player who night in and night out, dominated the competition. But while few can deny whether or not they deserved the award, sometimes, the Heisman can become a bit hyperbolic in nature.

For some reason, the Heisman can represent some sort of perfection. Not necessarily in terms of wins and losses but in overall play of a certain individual. We’re here to officially put an end to that ever-growing notion.

Despite putting up ridiculous numbers, leading their respective teams to an enormous amount of success, and putting the entire college football world on notice by taking home the Heisman, every winner of the award has thrown together a few duds.

With this year’s winner getting closer and closer to being announced, it’s time that we looked back at some of the low moments of past Heisman winners. We aren’t here to heap praise on their shoulders and inflate their egos more than it already is. Instead, we simply want to point to a time where past Heisman winners looked beyond normal.
