    Who do you think was the greatest of all time?

    For my money, it has to be Herschel Walker.....

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    While Herschel Walker was big and strong he was not the type of runner that was famous for doing what he did in that clip once he got in the NFL. In the NFL it was his jaw dropping, NOS injected, catapult assisted speed that I remember the most. He running style was usually to jog or tip toe behind his blockers, find a seam then hit the afterburners. Because of his size he was strictly a North-South type of running back, but all he needed was to get loose for just a step. Just one. If he got that, you would not catch him. If he caught a screen or hook pass out in space, he was gone.

    My vote for best college running back though would be Mike Rozier of Nebraska (Who's Heisman Trophy was sandwiched between Herschel Walker's and Doug Floutie's) or Earl Campbell, the Texas Rose.

    Yep...couldn't disagree with that...but it's close with Barry.

    You'll have to watch his 88 Holiday bowl when he went for 5 scores.

    quality isn't that good.

    Most of my exposure to either of those two was after they turned pro.

    Both were incredible, but Barry was the best running back EVER in professional ball. I cannot imagine it being very different in college ball.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    He's the best I saw.

    I never saw Archie Griffin, but two Heisman's is impressive.

    If you pay close attention you'll see another Hall Of famer for the opposing team.

    Before OJ was a half back by the name of Ernie Davis. Was the firt Black winner of the Heisman Trophy.

    I also think Fran Tarkenton was under rated in college and as an NFL player. Hell he been retired for 30 yrs and still holds about a half dozen NFL records.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    The Pitt QB, Martino, Barbarino, Bambino, whatever, didn't he have a mediocre year or two in the NFL?:D
