Take Tebow off Florida they would still be in the top 5, Same with McCoy and Texas, I can’t say that about Oklahoma, that is allllll Bradford.
If you replaced Bradford and Tebow with [AVERAGE D-1 QB], then I think OU and UF could still finish in the Top 15, and certainly finish in the Top 25.
Do the same with McCoy, and I think the Horns are 8-4 at best.
They’d have had a hard time beating OU, OSU, TT, and Mizzou without Colt McCoy running the offense.[/quote]
Okay, so you’re saying that last weekend, without Harvin, Ingram, and Rainey, an (AVERAGE D-1 QB) could have fit those 3 tight passes into the endzone like Tebow?
Tebow doesn’t have the numbers because he plays in a conference known for its defensive play. Even though the SEC was CLEARLY down this year, every defense that Florida played this year averaged an overall defensive ranking of 39th in the nation, opposed to 80th, which was Oklahoma’s final opponent’s defensive strength. I have no source, but I did see it on an NCAA show the other day on ESPN. I’m sorry, but anyone who plays against a Big XII defense every week is going to put up huge numbers. Look at a chump like Chase Daniel.
If anyone deserves to win over Tebow, it’s McCoy, because he’s the only player whose dynamic is almost as good as Tebow’s. Shut down the pass, and what exactly is Harrell and Bradford good for? Nothing. And no, the criteria for Heisman doesn’t just boil down to passing efficiency, but there’s not a whole lot else besides that to discuss concerning Big XII QBs.
The fact is, McCoy did the most with less out of anyone in the Big XII. Tebow will not win again, because all of the other QB’s numbers are inflated. If I had a vote, and was forced to vote for someone not Tebow, as a college football fan it’d be McCoy - easily.
