    Yeah he's one of the best of all time for sure. I dont think he's above Barry Sanders though. Barry should easily be in the top 5.

    He's in the top ten for sure. Top five is pushing it.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    1. Ricky Williams - because he stayed all four years, I have to give him the edge.

    2. Herschel Walker - I would put him #1 if he had stayed for his senior season.

    3. Troy Davis - Back to back 2000 yard seasons, even when every single team knew he was all our offense had. We may have lost alot of games, but it sure as hell wasn't his fault.

    4. Barry Sanders - 2628 yards and 37 TDs in one season

    5. Ron Dayne - Boring, but his stats speak for themselves. Over 7,000 career rushing yards.

    others: Tony Dorsett, O.J. Simpson, Doak Walker and Archie Griffin.


    Sure, luck means a lot in football. Not having a good quarterback is bad luck

    There are so many great college RBs that it would be a hard list to make. Troy should make the list just on the fact that he was our offense and everyone knew he was getting the ball, but he still made the yards. I've never seen a back like Barry Sanders before, the guy was so far out of everyones league.

    1. Barry Sanders; remember he left after his junior year too, and played under/with Thurman Thomas until his (Barry's) Junior year.

    There has never been anyone like him before, or since. Nobody with his agility.

    IMO: Barry Sanders was the best of all time in college and in the pros. I remember watching Barry at JTS. His run down the East side to the South end zone is one I will never forget.

    When that play was happening, my Dad leaned over and said, " pay attention, the best running back in my time is making an unforgetable run". And it was&#33; I think ISU fans were happy to see that run that day, even though it was against us.

    then 15-20 years later we sat together to watch "The Run", and I said the same thing to him as he did me for Barry... we both got a kick out of that...

    oh, the memories...

    I tried finding this run Barry had at Jack Trice on youtube.com and can&#39;t.

    If anyone has a video clip of it, I&#39;d sure enjoy seeing it&#33;

    based solely on NCAA I&#39;d have to say Reggie Bush. What he did was just unbelievable. The hype hes recieving and all the media surrounding him. You have to go beyond stats and on other attributes like instinct, finding the holes, breaking tackles, and also blocking.
