Hey, guess what.
Trent Richardson did not win the Heisman Trophy.
I know this, although you wouldn't notice by reading my stories from Sunday on the Buffalo Bills' game against the Cleveland Browns. Throughout the day and night, I made references to Richardson, the rookie Browns running back, being the Heisman winner from Alabama.
He actually did go to Alabama. I got that part right. And the Bills' defense did snuff him Sunday. That also was true.
But Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy, the Hobey Baker Award of college football.
I'm sorry for the repeated errors.
Like people who say "pacifically" or "supposably" or "could of," I have a tendency to confuse the star of a given year's national championship team with the Heisman winner. I used to do the same with Vince Young in 2005 and Al Gore in 2000.
So to make sure I don't make the same Richardson mistake again I will write the following sentence 500 times in my Trapper Keeper:
Trent Richardson did not win the Heisman Trophy for 2011.
I regret the mistakes. Thank you for your patience.
