We all know that Sam Bradford won the Heisman late Saturday night, but apparently FOX Sports didn’t get the memo. The network’s website had the headline right, but if you take a closer look at the copy, you’ll see that the whole article is centered around Tebow winning the award. Here’s a screencap via Deadspin….
What probably happened, is that Fox had prepared different pieces ahead of time and when the decision came down, the pulled the wrong one. It is pretty funny that they went as far as to say he’s only the second player to win back-to-back Heismans though.
