ESPN's Edward Aschoff started a debate with Chris Low on Wednesday about who should be considered the SEC's franchise player. Aschoff settled on Georgia Bulldogs QB Aaron Murray over South Carolina Gamecocks RB Marcus Lattimore, Arkansas Razorbacks QB Tyler Wilson, Alabama Crimson Tide RB Trent Richardson or LB Dont'a Hightower, or Vanderbilt Commodores LB Chris Marve.
It's an interesting question, as it's one that's usually only asked of pro teams since it factors in age and affordability, [Auburn joke].
Andy Hutchins of Alligator Army, SB Nation's Florida football blog, prefers Lattimore on the grounds that the Carolina bruiser is more likely to lead his team to a SEC title than any other player in the conference. Not that USC is the most likely conference titlist, you understand, but -- you understand. How do you feel about this?
