I actually liked watching Ingram a lot. He seems so consistent.
Richardson doesn't strike me the same way. He seems like a freak athlete who can light up some teams but doesn't seem like he has the consistency of Ingram. Just my opinion.
Jamal Lewis, Travis Henry and Travis Stephens on the same team still boggles the mind.
And Shawn Bryson. How is that possible?
I haven't seen his hs clips, but I haven't seen anything from him that impresses me.
Travis Henry ran like he owed Child Support
Not as much as John Henderson and Albert Haynesworth lining up side by side.
And not winning a mother[uck fay]ing thing...
I feel like you slapped me with the truth.
And that was the essence of Fulmer's legacy post 1998. We had the jimmy's and joe's to go on a nice little 3-4 year run at the top with perhaps 1 more NC or at least playing for a couple. Those opportunities only come around a program once or so in a lifetime unless you're the modern Florida or Alabama or Ohio State. Fulmer just wasn't big enough for that task. He caught lightning in a bottle in the run up to 1998 and once the reality set in that we were a top program with the Florida States, Alabamas, Miamis, Ohio States, Nebraskas, etc., Fulmer just wasn't prepared and didn't have the make-up to handle it. Plus the margins of great vs. good at the level are slim and he wasn't willing or able to surround himself with a top staff to keep us at the top, cough, cough Randy Sanders, cough, cough. Just too many holes on his staff.
Where did his vision go? he ran decently against oregon last year
Don't forget Travis Henry in that top line. Dude was just a ball of muscle.
I think Ingram is better as well. Richardson almost certainly has some better physical attributes, but Ingram had an innate RB sense about him. He had the ability to make cuts, but there were no wasted cuts. Just enough to get him past the defender and further downhill.
Henry is my favorite of all of them.
Extremely well put.
