Here's an interesting question posed by one of my favorite college football websites, Lost Lettermen.
Who is the most beloved player in the history of college football?
The Big 12 is solidly represented on the list with Tommie Frazier of Nebraska listed at sixth, Colt McCoy of Texas at No. 7 and Vince Young of Texas at No. 10.
Surprisingly, the winner of the balloting was a player who never won a Heisman Trophy and whose career ended 39 years ago.
It was Archie Manning of Mississippi, who was so popular to me that I named our family dog after him when I was 11 years old.
Ah, the memories of youth.
Anybody think any current or past Big 12 players were missed on this list?
How about Grant Wistrom, Chase Daniel, Adrian Peterson, Dat Nguyen, Eric Crouch or Todd Reesing?
I'm interested in your submissions.
