    Who is the greatest college football player of all time?

    I'm a Cane, so you can't say I'm biased, but I'm going with Tim Tebow. I know it's hard to pass Archie Griffin and his two heismans, but I'd give it to Tebow, the body of work is simply astounding, a heisman, two national championships, another BCS bowl win, all the records he broke. That's my vote, what's yours?

    Tebow isn't a bad choice... this is a tough question to answer though. You can make an argument for several players. Herschel Walker, Tommie Frazier, Marcus Allen, Hugh Green, Ricky Williams, Orlando Pace... it's tough to decide just one.

    The homer in my wants to say Tebow. But I'm just not quite sure. Another Heisman or another championship would have really made it a much easier case.

    I think it's Herschel.

    If Tebow beats Alabama in the '09 SEC title game I think they go on to beat Texas and it's an easy choice. Sadly, they lost.

    I'd love to make a case for my fellow Cane, Ken Dorsey, but he's not quite on that level lol. Still, we've had our share of greats, particularly from the '01 team.

    I immediatly thought Bo, but Walker is a great choice as well. Can't go wrong with either honestly

    Red Grange says the Illini homer.

    I'm taking this to mean the most impressive player of all time, so I'll go with Barry Sanders.

    If Tebow went on to win the National Championship in his senior year I think it would have undoubtedly been him. In the end, I think it's between Tebow and Walker for me.

    Tough to pick just one. Herschel is for sure there. As is Archie. As is Tebow even though I don't like him. The homer in me with throw Charlie Ward on the list.
