QB's have always been the face of their team. Peyton Manning (University of Tennessee) and Tim Tebow (University of Florida), wont have a chance to play each other till next year or later, but let's compare their College Passing Careers to see who is stacking up a better NCAA resume.

So far, Tebow has played in fewer games (roughly 15 less), but the numbers are something surprising.


Passes - 1354  Comp - 851  Comp % - 62.85  Yards - 11201  Yds/Comp - 13.16
TD - 90  INT - 33  ATT per INT - 41


Passes - 749   Comp - 492  Comp % - 65.68  Yards - 7033    Yds/Comp - 14.29
TD - 73  INT - 12  ATT per INT - 62

I have always joined the crowds in thinking that Tebow was more effective because of his feet and perhaps defenses do have to play him differently because of his running abilities. However, it seems by comp percentage, yards per completion and attempts per completion that Tebow even wins the passer competition with the Future Pro and Eventual Hall of Famer Peyton Manning.

But to be honest, when I heard a sports reporter talking about an upcoming story on "Superman," my first thought was that it was going to be about Tim "Superman" Tebow.
