Who are you more upset with the most...

Bryce Brown and Lorenzo Booker have to be the most overrated backs

Joe McKnight is the saddest story

He wasn’t #1, but Lorenzo Lingard, was a 5-star #2 ranked back in the Nation...

& Has done absolutely nothing in college.

The most overrated #1 I can think of was Thomas Tyner who signed with Oregon.

Darrell Scott who went to Colorado was another who was SUPER overrated.

Demetrius Summers at South Carolina was another highly overrated #1 5-star RB as well.

I didn't know that McKnight was killed.

He had one of the baddest highlight tapes I've ever seen. Top 10 in my 20 plus years of watching those things.

Thought Jaime Harper was coming here to be our next great linebacker.

Side note, love a good “let’s remember some guys” thread. Reminds me of the good ol days before the internet was just a shopping mall.

He may have been in college, but that mf was RIDICULOUS in High School. Bruh had us on SKATES for 4 quarters lol.
Imagine if he chose a school that would have used him like a Chip Kelly Oregon offense. Would have been a monster at Oregon.

What happened to Lingard , he was billed as a GOAT before he played .
He went to turds after giving up on learning our playbook he was to again be GOAT is he still a GOAT?

Long overdue for a position change, at this point.
