    Did you even watch the Alabama/Kent St. game? The offensive line was horrible. It's the biggest concern right now among the Bama fanbase. Alabama's offensive line isn't EVER supposed to look that bad. Hopefully Saban just wasn't trying to show too much that game...


    As far as SEC backs go, Bama, Tennessee, LSU, UGA, Florida, Ole Miss, Auburn, etc... have produced some pretty damn good ones... the list is too long to make.
    What SEC RBs recently have been so great in the pros, good enough to dismiss the RBs out of Va Tech??
    On the list you mentioned, which schools were the last ones to produce a 1000+ rusher in the NFL??
    SEC RBs despite what you might think aren't tearing it up in the pros.

      I haven't seen a player hit the hole with such acceleration in quite some time. Sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's bad, but when it's good, he's going for at least 30-40 yards and most likely is gone. When it's bad, it's just a no gain or one yard gain.

        Arkansas isn't doing too shabby in that department.

          I see a lack of input on your behalf in that thread therefore I can't really tear apart your rankings after one week.

          Other than being a 5 recruit, Richardson has done nothing in college for so many 'Bama fans to think he's better than Ingram.
          "The thing with Trent is you know where he's going to run, and he's coming right at you between the tackles," said Lorenzo Ward, the defensive coordinator at South Carolina. "We watched a lot of film on Trent last year before [playing Alabama], and we thought he was better than Ingram."

          Those 'Bama fans are such homers...

            Well the NFL's leading rusher last season was a UDFA out of Tennessee...

            McFadden and Felix Jones are both productive backs. Hell, even Peyton Hillis rushed for 1,000 yards.

            Most of the best backs from the SEC that have been pro-bowlers in the league for the past decade or so and even re-wrote record books in some cases (Shaun Alexander, Jamal Lewis, Deuce McAllister, Fred Taylor, etc.) are retired now... and a new wave of talented backs are coming to replace them.

            Name ONE VT back that's ever so much as made a pimple on Shaun Alexander, Jamal Lewis, Deuce McAllister's, or Fred Taylor's ass...

            What are you even arguing?

              I'm not sure what kind of time table you're putting on this so let's check out the last 5 years? What kind of great NFL RBs has Va Tech produced?

              Last season, SEC running backs that ran for 1k:
              Arian Foster, Tennessee
              Peyton Hillis, Arkansas
              Darren McFadden, Arkansas

                  Lacey and Flowers had no trouble getting getting yards against the "tough" Kent State defense. They had more yards on less carries.

                    Hell, Felix Jones also has a good shot to run for 1k this year. Would finish off the Arkansas trifecta.

                      That's fine. Just that lately SEC RBs, I'm talking about roughly the last decade haven't been dominant NFL performers.
                      Neither has anyone ever from Va Tech in recent memory ever rushed for 1k in the pros, but it's not as if the pro bowl teams of recent vintage have been dominated by SEC backs.
                      Hillis was a 7th rounder, Foster was a street FA out of Tennessee and up until last season McFadden couldn't stay off IR.

                      For the last decade, the record of SEC RBs has been less than the reputation of the conference IMO.

                        Has there ever been a college backfield to produce three 1000-yard seasons at once? As is quite possible this coming season?

                          I would bet no.

                            First team that came to mind were the Miami Hurricanes in the early '00s that had Gore and McGahee on the roster but the other RB was Payton or Davenport.

                                Gore, McGahee, and Portis were all on the same team?
