2. "If I sit out next year, I'll probably get the Heisman Trophy."

-- Tim Marshall, 1983 Preseason All-American, after sitting out the 1982 season with an injury

3. "It should be called the smoke filled room and The Tammany Hall Award."

-- Jim Murray, late Los Angeles Times columnist, on the behind-the-scene voting for the Heisman

4. "I don't have room for it. It'd just be something else I'd have to dust."
