Jameis Winston just won the 2013 Heisman Trophy. It was no real surprise at all that the Florida State QB would win the trophy after an outstanding season. What was surprising to some is that he was completely left off 115 ballots:
Winston on 785 ballots out of 900 tabulated, or 87% of ballots.

Even with being left off 115 ballots he still had the 5th highest margin of victory in the modern era. This no doubt had to do with the allegations of sexual assault against him. They really should make everyone who left him off the ballot explain themselves.
No charges were filed against him by the State’s Attorney.
