BCS National Championship: Point-counterpoint

Who’ll have the bigger game, Bradford or Tebow?
Columnists Berry Tramel and John Rohde debate who’s going to have the bigger game tonight, Tim Tebow or Sam Bradford:

Tramel: In the derby matching Heisman Trophy winners, I think it’s more likely that Tim Tebow plays well. I base that solely on running ability. In games like this, great pass rushes can take throwers off their game. Tebow has his running to fall back on.

Rohde: And what if Tebow has no place to run? The Sooners are stronger against the rush, which means Tebow more than likely will have to rely on his arm. And if this comes down to a throwing contest, I’ll take Sam Bradford.

Tramel: Bradford’s upside for this game is higher, no doubt. If he gets time, OU will score and score big. But rarely in championship games does a quarterback get a lot of time to throw. That’s why Tebow is dangerous.
