Brian Bosworth named most hated college football player ever

A college football career only lasts four years, but a player can still make a lot of enemies in that short time frame.

As far as Sporting News is concerned, Brian Bosworth is the most hated college football player to ever play the game. The former Oklahoma Sooners linebacker, affectionately known as “The Boz,” made his fair share of fans angry in his career with the team.

Who did you hate more: Cam, The Boz, Winston, Johnny Football. Our 16 most hated.

In Bosworth’s two years in Oklahoma from 1984-1986, he was known for both his superior playing ability and rowdy personality. Bosworth had a hot temper on the field, and was not afraid to speak his mind on the NCAA – or really anything for that matter. The infamous linebacker made himself even less liked by failure to pass a steroid test before the 1987 Orange Bowl.

Bosworth has changed his ways and is a very different person today, as anyone who has seen the 30 for 30 documentary, Brian and Boz, will tell you. But, his actions during his college career make it hard for him to be anywhere on the list but the top.

Here are the remaining top 5 on the Sporting News list:

2. Jameis Winston (Florida State)
3. Cam Newton (Auburn)
4. Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M)
5. Tim Tebow (Florida)

Who do you think deserves a spot on the list?
