Herschel Won Dickerson's Heisman?

And who is that Arps girl, anyway?

Very interesting article by ESPN. In case the link ever stops working, ESPN discusses the notion that Eric Dickerson had a better year than Herschel the year that Walker won the Heisman. Had Craig James not gone to SMU, Dickerson would have amassed more carries and likely achieved more touchdowns and total yards than Walker. As it was, Dickerson and Craig James both attended SMU, leading to the two tailbacks sharing carries as part of the "Pony Express" attack.

Craig James signed after Dickerson, but went to SMU anyway since his girlfriend was going to the school.

Pony Express or Power I?
