Rules: Only use a player/coaches standing in college football. They're alot of players/coaches who were some of the greatest in college, but never panned out in the NFL. This TD is to not only highlight them, but also players/coaches who were a hit in college, and then continued the same success in the NFL.
Follow my example. Also, a PESOBACK can be used (even if they didn't play the hybrid position
COACHING STAFF **head coaches CAN be coordinators
Also, to save charecters, I will enter the Offense and Coaching Staff now, and then will add the defense in during the next argument. Thanks for playing.

HB: Herschel Walker, University of Georgia

HC: Bo Schembechler, University Of Michigan
OC: Steve Spurrier, South Carolina

Alright, there's my Offense. Since this TD is about college football I concentrated a bit more on that aspect for my picks as opposed to which players became the bigger NFL sensations.
Set your Defense No-Huddle and best of luck to you.

I would like to thank Hootz for replying and commend him on an outstanding team. Here is my defense and on the next round of arguments I will be arguing the offense only...and then the defense for the last argument. Best of luck to you, as well, Hootz.

My Defense is now set and this TD is a lot harder than it appears. It required hard work and more researching than I had anticipated.
Along the way on a sad note I discovered that Reggie Roby had died several years ago.
I would also like to give kudos to LB Shane Conlan of Penn State. One of my favorites.
Ok No-Huddle, I'm hanging tough here and await final arguments. Bear in mind that each of us has only ONE arg left for closing. I'll follow your format and hope that we can pull this off with just 1200 characters left to go.
Good luck and enjoy the rest of the TD.
