College players under the most pressure to perform?

Just recently read an article that was saying Florida's John Brantley was under the most pressure to perform. I agree he has a ton of pressure but I don't think he is under the most. Here is my list;

1) Greg McIlroy - To me he has to be under the most pressure. He is the QB of the top team in the country and now that he has an inexperienced defense, he must prove he is capable of taking over a game and lead Alabama back to the National title game.

Without top talent around him like other QB's, Locker must turn water into wine in  order to maintain his draft stock. He could stand to lose millions if he doesn't will his team to victory on a weekly basis.

3) Kellen Moore - He is in prime position to lead the first non BCS school into the title game, especially if they can get by Va Tech early on. Coming off a monster season, fans are expecting even bigger numbers and a run towards the National Championship.

My favorite one of all time is when he said this;
"A kid once asked me where Lions come from. I told him that when my blood is spilled and the sun hits it, Lions are born."

I didn't realize the amount of risk ESPN was taking when they hired him to help do their show, MMA Live.

How Matt Stafford is spending his vacation before camp

Not sure if anyone has seen these pics yet but looks like Matt Stafford has come a long ways since his days of playing with kegs during his college years.

Nothing says franchise pick like a guy waiving his middle finger around and hanging out with a bunch of skanks. Looks like another Matt, Matt Leinart.
