FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt is tired of the Sam Ehlinger - Tim Tebow comparisons. Klatt thinks Ehlinger is better and it may not be close.
On Thursday’s edition of Breaking The Huddle, Klatt made it clear that he doesn’t like seeing Ehlinger compared to Florida legend and former Heisman winner Tim Tebow.
Klatt went so far as to call it “an absolute insult” to compare Ehlinger to Tebow. He explained that Ehlinger is about the same kind of runner as Tebow, but “twice or three times the passer” that Tebow was.
Tebow also averaged at least 3.8 yards per carry in each of his four seasons. Again, if Ehlinger finishes above 3.8 yards per carry this year, it will also be his first.
But the stat that may mean the most to fans and historians is wins and trophies.
Tebow won two SEC and national titles (one each as a backup and one as a starter). Thus far, Ehlinger has none. And with one loss already, he may not even get a chance to play for a national title in 2019.
