Heisman winners only and those that would have received the Heisman had it existed then (e.g. Chic Harley).  Harley was voted with Jim Thorpe, above Red Grange, as the top two Running Backs from 1890 to 1940 and by all reports; he would have won the Heisman twice had it existed at the time (1916 to 1919).

Harley played 1916, 1917, and 1919 with the one year 1918 that he was in training for Army Aviation programs and never left the U.S. 

He is, after all, the primary reason we beat %ichigan in 1919:

Chic Harley made a huge impact in the game by intercepting four passes and scoring all points on offense.  Following the Buckeyes' 13-3 win, the legendary Michigan head coach Fielding H. Yost asked for and was granted a rare moment to address the Ohio State team and stated "You deserve your victory, you fought brilliantly.  You boys gave a grand exhibition of football strategy and while I am sorry, dreadfully sorry, that we lost, I want to congratulate you. And you, Mr. Harley, I believe, are one of the finest little machines I have ever seen."

Chic Harley made such an impact that someone wrote his name on the front of the program (that is not Chic in the photo, as this was at UM).

Everyone needs a stepping stone; without them we never take our bosses job, go up the ladder of life, and in this case... win National Championships.

In response to this wonderfully historic thread; I present my 1919 Ohio State vs %ichigan game program and two tickets to our first OF MANY victories against TTUN.

Prior to 1919 the Buckeyes had not fared so well and had lost 13 games and tied twice.  Since 1919 “The Rivalry” has Ohio State vs. Michigan nose to nose with OSU posting 46 victories, UM 45 victories, while sharing four ties.  Chic Harley made a huge impact in the game by intercepting four passes and scoring all points on offense.  Following the Buckeyes' 13-3 win, the legendary Michigan head coach Fielding H. Yost asked for and was granted a rare moment to address the Ohio State team and stated "You deserve your victory, you fought brilliantly.  You boys gave a grand exhibition of football strategy and while I am sorry, dreadfully sorry, that we lost, I want to congratulate you.

and FSU is playing HORRIBLY.  They really are playing about as ugly as a team can play and the old luck meter has been pegged; time they lose... oh and Jame-the-rapist breaks a leg or something.
