you are entitled to your opinion but just answer me this, do you hate USC? im asking because you believe Ian Johnson and a true freshman at Colorado will be better than either Mcknight or Stafon Johnson? Please explain.

1. Chris Wells, Junior (next year), Ohio St.
-Is a big back with speed who can take over games, as he did many times in his sophmore season.

2. Eugene Jarvis, Junior, Kent St.
-Is a little guy who isn't at a powerhouse school but he is a great runner who had a big sophmore year.

3. LeSean McCoy, Sophmore, Pittsburgh
-Is a complete RB, he will be a good one.

4. DeMarco Murray, Sophmore, Oklahoma
-Very exciting runner who will get to carry the load with Allen Patrick gone, I think he will handle being the go to guy very well.

5. Knowshon Moreno, Sophmore, Georgia
-Had a great freshman year but may not be a go to guy next year. Possibly the hardest runners in the nation.

Honorable mention

-PJ Hill, Junior, Wisconsin
-Ian Johnson, Senior, Boise St.
-Keiland Williams, Junior, LSU
-Noel Devine, Sophmore, West Virginia
-Damion Fletcher, Junior, Southern Miss

It actually has a lot more to do with the line that USC is losing. I understand that they consistently have a very good running game, but when you lose both of your guards and your all-american LT, it hurts the running game severly. I like Johnson and McKnight very much and was a huge fan of Marc Tyler coming out of HS, but I just feel that they just won't be that productive next year.

I actually agree with Moody being great next year. It broke my heart when he left (but we have so much depth at HB I dont blame him). I think with Tebow and Harvin taking pressure off him he will be deadly.

fair enough. in response though im not too worried. kris o'dowd is our best player on the line anyways. if you saw the nebraska game he was pancaking at least 2 defenders at a time and opening up monster holes for the backs. i dont think our run game will be less productive than last year but i guess your concern is justified.

A perfect example is all of the schools in Florida and producing QBs. The list of QBs who had successful college careers, but horrendous NFL careers is pretty long for Florida, FSU, and Miami QBs. Jim Kelly is an exception.

you completely missed the argument... the argument was that those schools have a position where they constantly produce great college players who suck in the pros...

Wow...I feel stupid for only reading the 1st and last posts of that discussion. We do have a bunch of those lately too though.

I actually like Michael Bennett and Brian Calhoun (and Stefan Lefors) so I wasn't sure what was going on.

his parents are both deaf, thats why he learn sign language. also louisville has a sign language school. I believe it was John L smith who was the coach who recruited him, and John L Smith knows sign language. that is why he went to louisville

JJ has bulked up to 218 and looks quicker, but he's still not even the best back on our team. No way he's top 5.

I think Ian Johnson earned his share of the spotlight after the Fiesta Bowl...

Lippencott is interesting from what I've seen. I didn't know Savage and McRae were still eligible. I've never seen Unga.

Lippencott is interesting. He has good size and good athleticism. Savage and McRae aren't eligible(see new list lol). Harvey Unga is someone I saw that had good stats as a running back in BYU's offense. He was a threat running and catching the ball alike. Big bruiser but has the speed and quickness to break one every time he touches the ball.

Whats up with all the mentioning of CJ Spiller in the top five? He's not even the best running back on his own team. Many people compare him to Reggie Bush, and I'd have to agree. Of course, I'm talking about last seasons Reggie Bush, not USC's Reggie Bush. Just like Bush, Spiller simply can't run inside. He tries to bounce out everything and juke, cut, spin, whatever. It didn't work last season. Sure he makes a few highlight style plays when does get open. But last year at least, that rarely happened. Not to mention he'll be running behind a new offensive line this year.

He's already behind Royster and Carter, and will probably be behind Beacham come summer.
