I was watching ESPN's Pardon the Interruptionyesterday and one of the many subjects analysts talked about was the topic of Tim Tebow. I was naturally interested about what the three analysts had to say (one being Skip Bayless). As my eyes were glued to the television, Skip was talking about all of Tebows records and the Gators' National Championship titles in the past few years.

PTI is a show that I generally like and I think they give interesting insights on different subjects happening in college football currently. But a comment that Skip Bayless made regarding Tim Tebow as being "the greatest college football player of all time" struck me as an odd and uninformed opinion. I generally don't prefer Bayless because he gives some far-out predictions on the week's college football games but I do like some of his logic. I saw little to no logic in his comment... Plain and simple. Most of us generally know that ESPN is somewhat biased to Tebow, and don't get me wrong, he's a good kid and I respect him... I just don't respect some of the insight "analysts" give.

Although Tebow is a good guy on and off the field and he does stand out from the crowd, I don't see him as earning the title of "The Greatest College Football Player of All Time". That's a hefty conclusion if you ask me, seeing that there's over 100 years of player history to study. I credit Tebow with some accomplishment, but nothing would ever let me say that he is the best to ever play the game. I credit the team, more than the player.
