#1
Let's take a look at the candidates in this discussion:


1. Tommy Frazier - Nebraska - Frazier led his team to back-to-back consensus national championships in 1994 and 1995, and he remains the only quarterback to have done so since the 1950s. The 1995 Nebraska team is considered to have been one of the most dominant in the history of American college football. In a 2006 ESPN.com poll, the results of which aired on Sportscenter, the 1995 Nebraska team was voted the best college team of all time. In 2004, CollegeFootballNews.com named Frazier the #33 player on their list of the Top 100 Greatest College Football Players of All-Time.

Career statistics

Passing: 250-509 (49.1%), 4,003 yards, 47 TD, 18 INT

Tebow finished the regular season( His first as a starter) with 217 completed passes in 317 attempts for 3132 yards gained and 29 touchdowns with six interceptions?giving him the second highest passing efficiency in the nation with 177.8. Additionally, he rushed 194 times for 838 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground through 11 games. Tebow's 51 touchdowns were more than 87 Division 1-A Teams scored. His career statistics have the potential to be mind blowing. Tebow became the first Sophomore in history to win the Heisman Trophy in 2007.


3. Pat White - West Virginia - Career statistics include 327 completions in 509 pass attempts for 4,207 yards, 35 TD's and 16 INT's. 493 rush attempts for 3,506 yards and 39 TD's.

YOung won that national Championship all by himself almost. He was spectacular early in that comeback win over Ohio State on the road. And he was even better against USC. The guy was unstoppable. He got Mack Brown off the hook. Big time.

The game I will never forget that yr, Texas-Ok St...Texas was getting destroyed at the half, I think they were laying 21 and were down by like 21 at the half, soemthign crazy, not only did they comeback but they came back and covered, by 7!

I am pretty sure on the facts...one of the biggest pointspread comebacks I've ever seen, maybe the biggest.

Right. USC was unbeatable at that point. Great game. I think the game you mean was against Michigan in that Bowl game when he just dominated them. He had that long stride and was so smooth as a runner. He ate mich up. Memories!
