Now.. I am a BIG college and pro footbball fan.. I love the Miami,FLa Hurricanes in college and I am a Steelers fan in the NFL. My question though for today is... Who is Your Favorite College Football Player of All-Time?
I guess mine has to be QB Ken Dorsey of Miami,Fla
This young man did nothing but win at the U. He only lost 2 games in his career at Miami that in its self is awesome. I had some others and it was a hard choice.. like..Jim Kelly.. Bo Jackson.. Brian Bosworth ... Charlie Ward..
Now, lets hear ya'lls opinions and favorites.. Good Hunting!!:tt02:

Hard to pick one. Jerald Sowell, Shaun King, Justin Vincent? Might have to go with Sowell because I got to interview him for the Tulane Hullabaloo.

It's a tie for me... 2 Penn Staters

Ki-Jana Carter .... greatest college RB I have ever seen in person, and I have seen a bunch of good ones!

LaVar Arrington ... two words ... "F***ing Ridiculous" .... the Lavar Leap ... blocking the FG against Pitt as time expired ... knocking punters down on the ground and standing over them .... impact play after impact play after .... :blah: :blah: :blah:

I was about 12 when a friends dad took me to my first college game. He said Pitt had this great freshman RB name Tony Dorsett. I'll never forget that game or him leading the way to the national Championship 4 years later.

How 'bout Barry Sanders (1986-89)....played his first two years behind Thurman Thomas. 37 TD's his Junior year....If he had played since he was a freshman, he would have broke all the records. Just like he would of in the NFL.

Ruben Brown as a past player. Chris Long as a current player, hope the Steelers think about drafting him next year.

Eddie George has to be my favorite.

Lets not forget Antwaan Randle El.... first player in Division I history to pass for 40 career touchdowns and run for 40 career touchdowns.....7,469 passing yards, 3,895 rushing yards, and 86 total TD's

Being a Buckeye fan I would love to say Archie Griffin,the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner...however I was not alive when he played.I have seen video,and watching him was just awe-inspiring.

Eddie George was a beast,loved watching him run.

Ted Ginn Jr. was always dynamic no matter what.He caught TD passes,ran back kickoffs (I will always remember the kickoff return agaisnt the damn Gators),and punts too.I remember his TD run against Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl,that was just damn!

Troy Smith was an excellent player.He could throw it 74 yards with accuracy or tuk it down and run it 74 yards for the TD if need be.Forget his height,he's gonna be a star in the NFL,he will make teams regret passing on him (unless the Browns draft him).The Florida game was an anamolie,his o-line couldn't block...not to mention Tressel forgot how to run the ball so it's not like the defense was afraid of Pittman running through a gapping hole.

Anthony Gonzalez was just a great player.He threw blocks,had great hands,had deceptive speed.Kinda reminds me of Hines Ward,only white.

AJ Hawk is one of the best college linebackers ever.All he did was make plays.

Andy Katzenmoyer was a beast,what ever happened to him?Does he still have a spot on the New England roster?

Orlando Pace...all I gotta say is Mr. Pancake.

Craig Krenzel,probally the smartest man to ever play college football.

Maurice Clarett...well,until he bacame a complete dumbass.

Antonio Pittman,this guy was a workhorse as a RB and could have beaten Florida of Tressel would have stuck with him.He'll be a very good back for whatever team drafts him.

And everybody remember this name: Chris "Beanie" Wells.He wears #28 and will be the premeire back to Ohio State with Pittman gone.He'll break records and win a Heisman in his time as a Buckeye.

I will Never forget the run against the Seahawks when He (Bo) ran all over the top of Pretty BOY Brian Bosworth..:tt02:

Defense - Paul Pusluszny - the game against Ohio State in 2005, he was everywhere. I never saw a linebacker play a better game.

Offense - Tony Dorsett - How many players ever were a legitimate threat to go all the way everytime they touched the football. He was. For those who remember records, he seemed to run in 45 speed when everyone else was at 33 speed.

And I'm not even from Hopewell or Aliquippa, just worked out that way.

I agree. Touchdown Tony was an amazing player to watch. Always a threat to break one.

Bo Jackson Could Take It All The Way at Anytime Also... And I am guessing, but I bet Dorsett didnt have the world class speed that Bo did..:tt02:

mine would have to be Brady Quinn. im a big Notre Dame fan and ive seen every game that he played except for that ND-Wsh game two years ago, which was on my birthday! but when he first came to Notre Dame me and my brother watched his first start against Purdue, he kept getting knocked down play after play and he would get up like nothing happenned after that game i said he would be something special and looked what happened

Ugh... not to profile people from WVU, but you can probably watch him live on cops in 4 years, too...

Don't blame me... blame the WVU alum in the NFL (and soon CFL) :flap:

haha....yea i knew that would come sooner or later....but no this guy has been nothing but a class act since he enrolled there......what pisses me off is that with that pick the cowboys got from the browns i can see him as a top 3 pick next year and i dont want to see the cowboys snag him......the guy ran a 6.0 60 yard dash....i know they run 40's in the nfl but rodriguez had a fastest guy competition cause everyone was bickering who was the fastest on the team with pat white, steve slaton, and darius reynaud....yea the guy is amazing

I got 2 for ya. Ki Jana Carter. The kid was amazing. The Rose Bowl, the first offensive play...gone. He was a monster...until the Bungles drafted him and ruined his career with the torn up ACL. He was all class. He was the reason I became a Nittany Lion fan.

Paul Puz...the guy is all heart. He knows he isnt the fastest but goes all out. He was the motor that made the PSU Defense run.

I almost never follow college football. Too many teams and names to remember, but the one guy I did sort of follow was Jerome Bettis at Notre Dame. I nearly fainted when I heard the Rams traded him to us. I knew he was something special.

Kajana Carter the only college players jersey I have ever bought. LaVar is a very close second he was just awsome.
