The first player I can remember doing the “Heisman Pose” was Desmond Howard back in 1991 against the Buckeyes. In the years since couple others have tried, and like Howard they totally screwed it up. Let’s take a look:

Here’s the aforementioned Desmond Howard. Cute but incorrect.


Here’s Patrick Peterson giving a good but ultimately mistaken effort.


 Next up is USC’s Adoree’ Jackson from yesterday with what can only be described as an awful attempt. Dude looks constipated or something.


Why are these wrong, you ask? Because they’re not posing like the Heisman Trophy. Not even close. As you can see, the back leg is bent and the front foot is firmly on the ground, unlike the nitwit pea brains I’ve shown.

And so I ask again, why can’t anyone get the “Heisman Pose” right?


Gimme a holler.
