Sports Illustrated's Best College Football Player by Number

I found this pretty interesting. gave their list of the best college football player to wear each number 1-33.  Their were 3 of particular interest to the Titans:

#9 Steve McNair
Nicknamed Air for his aerial show at Alcorn State, McNair is the only player in NCAA history to gain more than 16,000 yards (16,823) in total offense during his college career. He finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1994.
#10 Vince Young
Few college players are more associated with winning. Young finished with a 30-2 career record and his .938 winning percentage as a starting quarterback ranks sixth best in Division I-A history. In what many consider the greatest Rose Bowl performance, Young ran for 200 yards and threw for 267 in a 41-38 win over USC.
#27 Eddie George
As a senior George rushed for a school-record 1,927 yards and 24 touchdowns, including 314 yards and three touchdowns against Illinois. He won the Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award in 1995.
It is a pretty interesting list.  Go take a look at the whole thing if you have time.
