SI.com released a list of the top 15 running back in college football. Click here for the article.
Marshawn Lynch is ranked #1. I have written a lot about Marshawn in the last couple days so I will just state that I agree wholeheartedly with this list. Read the post below for an interview with Marshawn also on SI.com.
Here is the list:
1) Marshawn Lynch, Cal
2) Steve Slaton, WVU
3) Ray Rice, Rutgers
4) Mike Hart, Michigan
5) James Davis, Clemson
6) Darren McFadden, Arkansas
7) P.J. Hill, Wisconsin
8) Garrett Wolfe, NIU
9) Ian Johnson, Boise St.
10) Kenny Irons, Auburn
11) Antonio Pittman, Ohio St.
12) Yvenson Bernard, Oregon St.
13) Jonathon Stewart, Oregon
14) Ahmad Bradshaw, Marshall
15) Branden Ore, V. Tech
Here are some random comments about the list:
- Both James Davis and Darren McFadden split time in the backfield. Why do they get the nod over CJ Spiller and Felix Jones. I think by this time next year it is possible the Spiller is the starter for Clemson.
- If this poll was done 2 weeks ago, Garret Wolfe is in the top 5 and Ray Rice is not. Also, Jonathon Stewart is much higher.
- I would put Pat White, WVU at number 11 on this list.
- Ian Johnson is ranked too low.
- Number 14 and 15 can be any decent starter for any team in the BCS conference.
