Big 12: Felix 'Doc' Blanchard
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
With the recent passing of Felix "Doc" Blanchard, the folks at FanHouse.com posed an interesting question when they considered who the greatest living Heisman winners are.
Not surprisingly, the Big 12 was represented.
Oklahoma State's Barry Sanders was selected as the No. 2 living Heisman winner, trailing only double-Heisman winner Archie Griffin of Ohio State.
It's obvious why Sanders would be so highly ranked. His 1988 season might be the greatest in college football history with 2,628 rushing yards, 3,249 total yards and 39 touchdowns.
Behind Griffin and Sanders, Matt Leinart of Southern California was third, Tony Dorsett of Pittsburgh was fourth and O.J. Simpson of USC was fifth.
And 1972 Heisman winner Johnny Rodgers of Nebraska ranked among those players receiving honorable mention.
It was an intriguing list and the display with career video highlights of the top five finishers was pretty cool, too. Sanders' running style looks as scintillating today as it did during his college playing career.
