While this comparison and these stats have no real standing in the Heisman discussion, should both players excel in their conference championship games, some voters might choose to peek at career numbers before filling out their ballots. Also, about 10,000 Texas fans have visited the site and a decent portion of them keep reminding me about McCoy setting the total wins record.
Whatever way you look at it, these are the two best quarterbacks of the past several years. They’ve dominated statistical categories, games, their conferences and many of the national races. I’m going to let you do your own analysis…just providing the numbers. Note: Tebow only started three years. He participated in the offense as a freshman, but I have broken down some numbers into total and “as a starter”.
The most important stats (to most). Wins, win% and championships.
And, finally, context. Who’d you do it against? Seems some of the readers don’t see the relevancy in this stuff, but why do we keep stats if not to compare? And if opponents don’t really matter then why don’t we consider FCS and even high school teams/players for the big awards and bowl games?
