We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

If we do numbers 1-99, I nominate Nile Kinnick for #24. He was the 1939 Heisman Trophy winner and passed up pro football to join the military during WW2. He was killed during a test flight in 1943. If citizenship and leadership (he was team captain and student body president) mean anything, Kinnick gets the nod here. Plus, he delivered the greatest speech in Heisman Trophy history.
The Great 34 Debate
Bo or Hershel?
Good story, didn't know that
Lee Roy Jordan - 54
Derrick Thomas - 55
OJ Simpson - 32
Jim Brown - 44
Barry Sanders - 21
Peyton Manning - 16
Lawrence Taylor - 98
Warren Sapp - 76
Ed Reed - 20
Ronnie Lott - 42
Suh - 93
Just some that I think fit the bill
#15 Frazier or Tebow
I say Tebow
Mario Edwards Jr imo
I say Frazier, but I would also argue that he's the greatest college QB of all time. No one ever ran his team's system better than he did.
#56 - Alvin Mack
Everyone has V Young locked in at 10?
Derrick Brooks wore 10 didn't he?
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
I would say Frazier even though I don't want to.
I still have nightmares from that Fiesta Bowl.
Could make a case for Eric crouch at #7 as well.
Would still have Vince at #10. Guy won a NC by himself.
How? No player that Rex Grossman outshines could be considered the best ever.
If we factor NFL production in as well, then no homer at all.

To be fair Grossman was great that year. I still think Grossman should have won the Heisman that year.
Crouch won it because of one play.
Brooks never finished ranked outside of the top-5, won a NC, and won his conference 3 or 4 times I think.
Just saying the argument could be made for the longevity of success.
Plus, QBs can take a game over...LBs is a different story

Loses points for "retiring" while in camp his rookie year.
Skill position numbers are easier to have good debates on, so here are some of my picks on line numbers:
#38 George Rogers.... Not anyone even close here.. The sentimental vote is Chucky Mullins of Ole Miss but Big George is one of the Greatest of all time.

VY was certainly more valuable to his team.
Neither of the other two single handedly won a title.
#20 Tucker Frederickson
SEC All Century Team
Played fullback and safety
6th in Heisman voting
SEC Player of the Year
Consensus All American
I nominate Sean Taylor for #26, Michael Irvin for #47, and Ray Lewis for #52, and also Warrick Dunn for #28.
