After what controversial Heisman Trophy season did the Heisman committee begin requiring that the votes be due after the final regular season games? Who won the Heisman in the controversial season, who was the runner up, and what was the controversy?
(Note: The votes aren't required to be turned in after the regular season, but they aren't due until after it's done.)
I read "regular season" as "bowl games." My b.

(The controversy with Young and Bush in 2005 was a post-bowl controversy. That issue persists.)
Yeah, I read "regular season" as "bowl games." That's on me.
Random hint that probably doesn't help:
I'll continue to let you guys think about that one and give you a second question to juggle:
As of the end of play today, what school has the most losses in college football history?
Ole Miss? Kentucky..

Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
Incorrect. Ole Miss actually has a winning record all time and less than 500 losses. The all time losingest team has 633 losses after today.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Correct. Indiana and Northwestern entered their contest today tied for the most losses all time. Northwestern's victory put Indiana alone in first place.
Next question (but don't forget the Heisman question from above):
Identify the RB duo:
In just three years playing together, this tandem had a combined 8294 rushing and receiving yards and a combined 66 offensive touchdowns.
Eddie George in 1974.
Anthony Davis finished second.
The ballets were due before the end of the regular seasons and before that year's USC-ND game in which Davis scored 26 of USC's 27 points, so it let people to wonder who the real winner should have been.
Correct on the year and close enough on the story. Davis scored 4 TDs against #6 Notre Dame and led his team to a 49-0 second half and a 55-24 win.
One minor correction:
Eddie George?! LOL Try Archie Griffin. In all likelihood, Griffin would have won the Heisman either way, as the margin was huge, but it probably would have been closer.
Some silly OSU player, they are all the same to me
Bush and White
McFadden and Jones is correct. FTR, here's Bush and White's combined stats as a pair:
8201 rushing and receiving yards, 95 offensive touchdown.
What Super Bowl champion head coach was once the head coach at a military academy?
Incorrect. Lombardi only coached pro football.
This coach won 2 of the past 26 Super Bowls.
Correct. Parcells coached at Air Force in 1978.
He coached at Air Force Academy.
Weekly Iowa-related question:
Hayden Fry's amazing coaching tree extends beyond just college football. This past week, former Hawkeye defensive back Bo Porter assumed the helm of what professional franchise?
He also wasn't the head coach.
