I’ve been watching College Football since I was about 5-years-old. In that time so many great players have come and gone, but time and time again the players continue to remind me how much they shaped my ideal College Football player regardless of system, team or coach. Until unseated, these 5 players are my All-Time best. #CollegeFootball

Top 5

1: Reggie Bush: The most dynamic runner in space I have ever seen. (I still to this day wear number 5 in any football video game) #WeAreSC#USCTrojans #PAC10

2: Tim Tebow: The heart of champion. Hated the guy but couldn’t keep away from watching his games. #TebowTime#SEC#FloridaGators

3: Ricky Williams: The most powerful runner I have ever seen. Short runs, long runs, ran with power, speed, finesse, and could run out of a traditional I-Formation #HookEm#TexasLongHorns#Big12

4: Johnny Manziel: The most dynamic QB I have ever seen. There was nothing he couldn’t do with a football. Off the field antics aside, dude was a nightmare to defend. #JohnnyFootball#GigEm #SEC

5: Charles Woodson: 2-way player and only defensive player to win the Heisman. #CWood#MichiganWolverines#BigTen

It is cupcake week across the nation with big time SEC Programs taking a week off to get a win after paying smaller schools with big time pay checks to take a beating. While it doesn’t always work out that way and upset minded team’s make the SEC Powers sweat, this time around the majority of the games shouldn’t be much of a struggle.

School  Name                              Host Opponent                          Payout
Nicholls State                                  Georgia                                        $525,000
Wofford                                            Ole Miss                                       $400,000
Prairie View A&M                          Texas A&M                                  $450,000*
Western Kentucky                         Alabama                                      $1.3 million
Arkansas State                               Auburn                                         $1.3 million
Jacksonville State                          LSU                                               $600,000
