As I watched the Heisman trophy presentation last night, I couldn’t help but contrast the acceptance speeches from the last two years. Cam Newton had a much different demeanor as he accepted the award than Mark Ingram’s demeanor the previous year. I pulled the videos this afternoon to watch them back to back and it was even more obvious to me. Both speeches are just a couple of minutes long, so check them out and share your thoughts with me in the comments section.

Cam Newton – 2010 Heisman

Mark Ingram – 2009 Heisman

What are your thoughts when watching these two speeches?
