1) If he were so great, he wouldn't have gotten the most 1st place votes and finished THIRD!!! His season was not even in the same vicinity as Bradford, McCoy, and even Harrell.
2) I'm not mad that McCoy didn't win or rather that Bradford won. I personally think he had an equally as deserving of a season, but it is what it is. I was just wondering if the BCS tie break for the Big 12 would've made a difference. I'm not convinced it would have.
3) Tebow is a great college player, but the "experts" are over-hyping Tebow to title him the "best player to ever play on the college level in terms of pure talent." He's nowhere near the top of the list. Heck, Harvin, his own teammate has more talent than him. McFadden did last year. I think McCoy is more talented this year and beyond -- he's a better passer, faster runner, and more prolific. Bradford by fat outshines him in the passing game. You can't question Tebow's heart and the fact that he's a great kid, but that has nothing to do with on field talent.
4) Don't even begin to compare him to VY. Tebow was on a championship team 2 years ago as a solid contributor, but in a gimmic kind of way. You can look at just 2 games and see what kind of player VY was in college. Pick either of the UT Rose Bowl victories and you'll see what he can bring to the table. Tebow is nowhere close to that level. He had a great year against the worst teams the SEC has put on the field in a decade or more. Even at that, it wasn't close to what the Big 12 guys did. Heck, Charlie Ward was just as good if not better. So were SEC guys like Walker and Bo.
If Tebow gets a chance to play in the pros, I'm not sure how he'll do. His head is much better suited for the game than VY, but he'll have to change his game completely. He's used to being bigger, stronger, and often faster than everyone else on the field (much like VY was), and that will change. There's no question he's a great leader, but I don't know how that translates into the NFL. He may be a great and elite collegiate player, but no way is he anywhere close to the "best ever."
