To the poster who questions Wilbur Marshall's place on the list, I am curious if you saw him play college?
quote:No doubt he was a force, and one of the greats. But I also saw Dorsey and Peterson play, and Alan Faneca, and Michael Brooks; are there any of those you could say weren't a "force"?
Marshall was a force and I certainly have no problem with where he is ranked.
Dorsey, Emmett Smith, Peterson, Reed, Hilliard, Faneca, Mawae, Ingram, Bradie James, George Teague, Jamal Lewis or a host of others
quote:I think his point was that such a ranking is subjective enough that several dozen more players could easily be argued worthy (including several from LSU). I don't believe he was actually suggesting that 8 of the top 16 SEC players in the last 30 years have been from LSU.
come on. I am an LSU fan and can't even make the case for 7 other LSU players to make the list. Objectivity may be in order. While they were all excellent college players, I dont see them as top 16 since 1980.
Tebow at 2 is dumb, no way he was better than Bo
Pollack being 9 is retarded
sCam Newton should be nowhere near the list, neither should McFadden
Not knocking any of those guys but you could arguably replace any with the following; Dorsey, Emmett Smith, Peterson, Reed, Hilliard, Faneca, Mawae, Ingram, Bradie James, George Teague, Jamal Lewis or a host of others. Even one-hit-wonder Cam deserves a mention for one of the all-time great collegiate seasons.
quote:I was torn on Mawae, as well. There was so much crappiness on those teams he played on (especially the coaching staff) that it was really difficult to gauge how well he was doing his job. Ultimately I couldn't put him in simply because I couldn't see enough success in his body of work, even though I knew it likely wasn't his fault.
I love Kevin, but NFL=/=NCAA.
even though I knew it likely wasn't his fault.
quote:Heh, yeah, meant to take that out. Turns out it was Joey Kent I was thinking of, a bit earlier than I thought ('93-'96).
must have been really good to where you cant even remember his name
