Walker vs. Tebow

Now that Tim Tebow has tied Herschel Walker, will he be able to break his record against Georgia this Saturday?

Rex Robinson has a good piece on whether Herschel Walker or Tim Tebow should be considered the "best" college player. He chooses Walker, and has a good rationale.

But if you turn the tables, and ask the questions, "should Walker be considered the best ever based on runs alone? What are Walker's throwing stats?" There's a good argument for both.

Here's the money quote:

I know Herschel Walker.

Herschel Walker was a teammate of mine.

And you Mr. Tebow, are no Herschel Walker!
