Who Are the Greatest of All Time To Play College Football?

Forgive me, folks. I'm a die-hard 'Bama fan, and I totally bleed Crimson blood. Yet I live in "Tebow-land," Florida.

An article in the Orlando Sentinel on Sunday morning had the headline "THE GREATEST," which started me thinking: Who would I consider the greatest of all-time to put on a college jersey and hit the line?

Of course, I'm partial to 'Bama, but I thought of a few that didn't play at the Capstone, and I just wondered what you folks thought about who was the best of all time. 

My vote goes to Jim Thorpe...even though it was like, what, 50 years ago that he played. Or maybe even Red Grange, from a time when men were men, helmets were made of leather, and shoulder pads were nonexistent.

Let me know what you think. This certainly could be a fun debate!
