So, is the Maxwell Award a consolation prize to the Heisman?

Last night Vince Young brought home the Maxwell Award as College Football Player of the Year. I haven't heard it said as such, but this award lately sounds like the booby prize given to the Heisman Runner Up if there isn't an obvious single choice that year.

Maxwell Award Winners
2005 Vince Young, University of Texas (1,346 points to Bush's 1,095)
2004 Jason White, University of Oklahoma (730 votes to Leinart's 164)
2003 Eli Manning, University of Mississippi
2002 Larry Johnson, Pennsylvania State University
2001 Ken Dorsey, University of Miami
2000 Drew Brees, Purdue University
1999 Ron Dayne, University of Wisconsin
1998 Ricky Williams, University of Texas
1997 Peyton Manning, University of Tennessee

Heisman Award Winners
2005 ???
2004 Matt Leinart, USC
2003 Jason White, Oklahoma
2002 Carson Palmer, USC
2001 Eric Crouch Nebraska QB Sr. 770
2000 Chris Weinke Florida State QB Sr. 1,628
1999 Ron Dayne Wisconsin RB Sr. 2,042
1998 Ricky Williams Texas RB Sr. 2,355
1997 Charles Woodson Michigan CB Jr. 1,815

I think the Maxwell is voted on by more coaches while the Heisman is purely former winners and media - correct me if I'm wrong, but that might have some impact due to the jock-riding the media's been engaged in w/ Bush this season.

Seeing Payton, Drew, and Eli on the Maxwell list makes we wonder if maybe the Heisman should be considered the booby prize for the Maxwell!
