"It has been an honor to even be mentioned with Herschel. It is very humbling and I’m sure when I sit back and think about I’ll realize how cool it is. To be able to break the record against Georgia would be extra-special."
-- Tim Tebow, on the opportunity to break Herschel Walker's SEC record for career rushing touchdowns... ironically, against Walker's Georgia Bulldogs this weekend. (h/t: Only Gators)
We will dig into the Tebow-Walker dynamic later in the week, but -- given the superlative-driven, history-making nature of Tebow's season (which has gotten lost in the crazy of the last month) -- this record-breaking moment is a big deal... and not just for the symbolism.
If there is one player who has more cred than Tebow among "Greatest College Football Player of All Time" contenders, it is Herschel Walker, who enjoys an on-field mythology as great as any player in college football history. Topping Walker's record would be a huge notch in the Tebow-GOAT argument.
