Is Tim Tebow the Tyler Hansbrough of football?

Posted by TopOfTheThread on January 2, 2010

Here’s a thought … (we did watch the Tebow cam)

Is Tim Tebow the Tyler Hansbrough of football?

  • Both had exceptional collegiate careers.
  • Both won NCAA Championships.
  • Both won the top collegiate individual awards (player of the year and Heisman Trophy)
  • Both are hard-working, good citizens.
  • Both will have difficult times in their professional sports (NFL, NBA). Hansbrough may actually have a better chance of making a “good length” career in the NBA than Tebow  in the NFL.

Congratulations to Tim Tebow on a great collegiate career. Please be open-minded in the NFL.  You may need to be a part-time hybrid quarterback and receiver.  Get in the league and show your value. All the cards will then fall into place. We wish you the best.

Kevin Love of UCLA joins the NBA draft — He too is better than Hansbrough

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 18, 2008

Now Kevin Love of UCLA will be entering the NBA draft. He is ready. Big body at 6-10″ and 270 lbs. He can step right in to the NBA and be a 12 pt 8 reb guy on day #1. He will fit into most teams as a signifcant contributor.

Michael Beasley of Kansas State will be a better pro than Love.

… And Both Love and Beasley will be better than Tyler Hansbrough….

It’s hard to argue otherwise.

Michael Beasley vs Tyler Hansbrough — College Hoops

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 15, 2008

Michael Beasley of Kansas State is headed to the NBA. He declared his intentions today. He will be a great professional player. Athletic. Talented. No doubt about it….

Let’s face it. Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina “was” a great college player. The problem is a part of his college game was, often, he pushed and forced his way around. He won’t be able to do that when he plays with “adults” in the NBA.
