Tebow broke Herschel’s SEC record for rushing TDs. In Jax. Against the Dwags. In a blowout. I was there. It was glorious.
Yes, he had one extra season as a part-time player, but he’s also a FREAKING QB! How many passing yards and passing TDs does Herschel have?
Imma say it again. TEBOW HAS MORE RUSHING TDs THAN HERSCHEL WALKER.

Hard to know where to begin. It’s not just a bad list, it’s a list void of consistency. You have people who apparently earned a lifetime achievement award and others who moved the needle for 15 months if that.
And then you have ...
#3 Bo Jackson. Why would I pick on this guy? He’s Superman. Easy. His numbers were very good, but he sat out important games and, all things considered, he’s 23rd but not #3. You gotta show up, man.
#10 Gale Sayers. I idolized the guy growing up based on what he did as a Bear. College? Are you kidding me? Even Sayers would admit it’s downright weird that he gets higher accolades as a Jayhawk.
#21. Peyton Manning. A stat hound who shrunk in big games, esp involving Florida, does not belong 55 spots in front of a guy who personally willed his team to a natty. It’s insulting.
#26 Deion Sanders. Hahahahahaha.
#38 Eddie George. Nice guy, hard runner. Now get the hell out of here.
The visceral bias against Tebow that exists in some people just baffles me. That kid has done nothing but spread excellence and positivity his entire life, and some people just can’t stand him for it.
And the way he was robbed of a 2nd Heisman was damn near criminal. I’ll never forgive all of those Midwest and Western region journalists who conspired to leave Tebow completely off their ballots so that Bradford would win... f*ck every last one of those bastards.
- Like x 10
Those are the two that jumped out to me as being crazy low, Tebow and Tommie Frazier.
And how the F does Peyton Manning rank ahead of Danny? Stats, no. Championships, no. Clutch performances, no. Both had talented teams around them so that's not it. Oh, and Danny was a saint while Peyton teabagged a team trainer. There is no metric by which Peyton was a greater college football player than Danny, none at all. In 1996, Danny beat Peyton at Tennessee and we went on to win the National Championship. Tennessee lost to an unranked Memphis team 17-21. Anybody ever remember Danny losing to a team like Memphis while only putting up 17 points?
SI can EABOD.
You are on the playground and named a captain and get the first pick. Who ya got?
There is not another player I pick ahead of him. Not Hershel or Bo, even though they probably get picked second and third. Neither of them could throw like Tebow and while he doesn't have the breakaway speed of Hershel or Bo, I trust Tebow to get 4 yards as much as either of them.
Those are the top 3 picks. The RBs after those two are a pickem. Reggie Bush was fast, so are plenty of others, but their odds of trucking a DL or a LB are nill. My money is on Tebow, Hershel, and Bo to truck damn near ANYONE.
It's kinda a homer article--but also hard to disagree with anything the author wrote.
Luck (to use one example) was listed ahead of Tebow--with nearly identical W/L records and passing stats...but minus Tebow's rushing stats or TDs and most importantly, lacking Tebow's 2 National Championships.
While I know it's impossible to truly compare players across different generations and time periods...no matter what metric one wants to use: Tebow deserves to be higher on a list of best **college** players of all time. Two Championships, a Heisman, and record-setting stats (many of which are still top 5-10.)
ESPN Ranks Tim Tebow as the No. 76 College Football Player of All-Time
The participants in this list clearly aren’t college football people. Their #1 player of all time scored a grand total of 21 TDs in his career and went 4-4, 5-3 an 7-2 in his three years of CFB. This is a list of NFL guys. The fact that Walter Payton, Jerry Rice, Steve McNair and Randy Moss are on the list but Danny isn’t completely invalidates the list. Those four guys made zero impact to college football, while Danny won 4
SEC titles, a national title and the Heisman. Calling this list a joke is the understatement of the century.
I saw this last week and can't give it any credit at all. Not that I am a Tebow apologist, I am not, but he is one of the top 5 or 10 college football players of all time. Now if they had ranked by position, that is a different topic. But as a "football" player, Tebow at 76 would be like putting Johnny Rodgers at 66.
Tim Tebow is Top Five all time and it's not debatable. Doesn't matter which criteria you use -- purely objective stats, or a subjective evaluation of the player's overall impact. Personally I'd argue he is #1, but I won't bother arguing with anyone who says he's not at least top five, because whoever says that doesn't know what they're talking about.
I didn't even know about this list until I was watching the National Championship game the other night, and they brought out the supposed 5-6 top players of all time, which I guess was based on this list. My immediate reaction when I saw the group was oh, this must be a random sampling of guys from the list. It can't be literally the top-ranked ones in order, because where's Tebow? What a joke.
Let's be honest, a lot of sports journalists these days are no different from regular news journalists when it comes to certain biases they have, their propensity for virtue-signaling and their low opinion of many of their own readers. What this ridiculous low rating was about was dissing the deplorable Southern White Americans of faith who are Tebow's most ardent fanbase.
