Hmmm, last time I checked PSU was in the Big Ten, and Palmer was playing in a no defense league also known as the Pac-10.........

Check your strength of schedule calculations. SC has, by far, the hardest schedule this year.

From CNNSI:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Carson Palmer capped his rise from mediocrity to stardom by winning the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, taking the bronze statue back to the West Coast for the first time in 21 years.

The Southern California quarterback became the first player from the region to win college football's most prestigious award since running back Marcus Allen did it in 1981.

Palmer received 242 first-place votes and finished ahead of Iowa quarterback Brad Banks.

The senior went 16-16 as a starter before this season, unable to live up to all the expectations he brought with him when he joined the Trojans.

He turned around his career dramatically this year, leading the Trojans to a 10-2 record and a spot in the Orange Bowl -- against Iowa and Banks. Palmer's season highlights included a stunning performance against Notre Dame on national television, crucial for a West Coast Heisman hopeful who didn't get as much exposure as some of the other candidates.

He is the fifth winner from USC, joining Allen, Charles White (1979), O.J. Simpson (1968) and Mike Garrett (1965). USC now has the third most winners, behind Notre Dame (seven) and Ohio State (six).

In what was expected to be one of the closest races in Heisman history, Palmer won by 233 points over Banks. Penn State's Larry Johnson finished third, Miami's Willis McGahee finished fourth and teammate Ken Dorsey finished fifth.

It was the first time in Heisman history all five finalists received more than 100 first-place votes.

Palmer won five of the six regions. Banks won the Midwest with 289 points, 100 more than Palmer.

When his name was called, Palmer kissed his fiance. Their wedding is in July.

"My heart's about to come out of my shirt," Palmer said. "This has been amazing, this whole journey through this season."

What can I say, the Heisman sucks!

Palmer will go down in history with the likes of Crouch, Andre Ware, Gino Toretta, and Charlie Ward.

He also now is the frontrunner to be drafted by my hometown Bengals......

Its all downhill from here Carson, so enjoy your trophy...

Unlike Toretta and Ward, Palmer will probably actually make a career of playing football.

I hope he likes Southern Ohio in the winter.....
