This list is full of not only good college football players but even great ones. However, this list isn’t about who is the greatest football player of all-time. It is about the college players who captured our imagination. The football players who we couldn’t take our eyes off of or stop talking about. Some of them became legends and others disappeared into history. Regardless of their future professional success, for a short amount of time all of these players were celebrated while captivating the nation.

The sports hype machine has become bigger and bigger as time has gone on. The days of people learning all their sports news from Howard Cosell are long gone. From the inception of the first 24-hour sports news channel, to the internet and now social media-the hype is on the brink of being out of control.

Some of us have an insatiable thirst for sports information, others of us know way more about these players than we ever wanted to know. Before we might not have known any players until their junior year of college, now we know about them as sophomore’s in high school.

Most of the players on this list are recent due to increased media coverage. The older players were so good they became legends without the benefits of twitter or even Sports Center. The list is littered with not only multi-position athletes but multi-sport athletes. Most of all, the list is full of great stories and legends, that will always be remembered.
