So Joe updated his "True To Your School" challenge with an entry for Florida, which I wrote about here yesterday with my own suggestions for Florida:
Joakim Noah? Check.
Al Rosen? Check.
Andy North (rather than my pick, Dara Torres)? Fine.
Emmitt Smith? Over my pick, Tim Tebow? ACK.
Yes, Emmitt had a Hall of Fame NFL career with multiple Super Bowls. But for college careers, Emmitt cannot compare to Tebow. OK: Maybe the point was to consider everything that player had done in their entire careers, college and pro. (See Rosen, North, Torres, etc.)
Yes, Emmitt is one of the greatest NFL players of all time -- certainly a top-5 all-time RB, but Tebow is one of the greatest college football players of all time. Ah well. I guess I see Joe's point. (BTW, Mrs. Quickie's favorite Florida football player all-time? Emmitt.)
