Greatest College Running Backs
The Contenders: Page 3
I can't believe no one has mentioned Walter Payton nor Gayle Sayers, next to Barry Sanders, the best ever! Gayle Sayers total yrds in one game, one season, and the most TD's in one season (36) and the most TD's in one game (6) still stand to this day!
One of the Best
Gale Sayers was best ever and not even listed! Probably because most of people reading these lists are too young to remember him.
The Kansas comet! #1 people don't even know!V 1 Comment
Straight monster. Could be one of the best ever. Speed power agility.
He's great at the university of Georgia!V 1 Comment
If he had a good line. Enough said
The best "all-around" athlete in the history of the planet; if he was alive today he would be a bigger celeb than Michael Jordan and LeBron James combined..V 3 Comments
Archie was definitely better but if you have a top 50 and Eddie George isn't on it, you're crazy.
Overrated. Ahman Green was a better back back then than Eddie George.
Electrifying scorer that could change the game. He should be ranked much higher. He had world class speed. He was mis used in the pros and he didn't get the Reps so his talent was a waste. He will be remembered like Lawrence Phillips, would have, could have. So sad... Only if you guys go to youtube and see the talent they had. Very Special and elite group!
He had the cuts and the speed as a WR/RB he had fingers made of maple syrup... Should I go on
Alabama Best Back Of All-time
All everything for 4 years in Tuscaloosa.
Mix of Jim brown and Earl Campbell. Would have won Heisman if healthy. Great hands and could break tackles with ease.
Should be around 15
He couldn't be tackled.
He's beter than nick chubb
Was appalled that no one has tossed him into the mix earlier... Heisman year followed by a season as runner up...7.4 + 6.7 yds per carry... One helluva back
Billy Sims was a 220 pounder with Barry Sanders moves with Earl Campbell power. How could he not be top ten. Come on now!
Sims was hands down the most electrifying runner in college history. Your list sucks!
Better than Barry Sanders period. If he never got hurt he would be one if the best. Back when he got injured you were considered done. So again if he played today he would have footmen good treatment and hopped back on the Lion. Rick Kane was the man for the Lions until Billy showed up. Rick Kane played at Amador high in Pleasanton ca and San Jose st and Oregon before Detroit pick him up. Also a track Star. Talented!V 2 Comments
