Who remembers this guy? He finished second to Barry Sanders in rushing during the 1988 season.

^^^I remember he played for Chicago for awhile......He may have been 2nd in rushing in 88', but second to Barry in all~purpose yards that year was some back who played for San Jose St.....then later went to the Phoenix Cardinals, and went to the Probowl his rookie year.....and then became a star on some obscure nintendo football game..........................................I just can't put my finger on his name...............................all I know is that guy definitley deserves a highlight reel if Darrin Lewis has one.

^^^Naw..........It's only poison at Tournaments where I have to play against teams that completely outclass the Cardinals.....other than that, Johnny Johnson was an elite back who I looked up to since I was in single digets.  People need to know about "best that never was" players like him.  They defined an era......and there's nothing kool-aid about Johnson.....more like a 100 proof top shelf Bourbon.

I decided to make a generic top 10 plays video, complete with the ALL CAPS clickbait part in the title.

A guy who played for an Ivy League school, yet was a heisman winner. He was a single-wing tailback, so Kazmaier was essentially the QB of the team. In today's game, he'd be considered an exciting Manziel/Vick/Lamar Jackson type of dual threat QB.

DJ Dozier wasn't the most gifted athlete of all time, but he knew how to run effectively and just got yardage. I really enjoyed making this video. Also, the cover is one of the more iconic images in CFB history:

^^^He wasn't the MOST gifted athlete, but he was a pretty damn good one...he had a burst that few backs his size had, plus he could crush a baseball and run the bases exceptionally.....he was another Bo, just not as fast.  He was drafted by the NFL and the Major League.

He was a good athlete, but nothing spectacular. He wasn't a great baseball player either. Dozier was a good player who had nice quickness, but wasn't anything spectacular. The only reason that I made this video is because he always seemed to be popping up in the games I was watching for other players videos. Eventually, I decided that I might as well take advantage of all of that video just sitting around and made a video of Dozier. And this was the result.

Well......you know what they say......opinions' are like a$$holes.....everybody has one ;)   ......in the 80's, when he played for Penn State, and he was in his mode, I think he was one of the best college players in the country. (eazily top 10)  .....He also had a knack for saving his best $#!t for the big games...he reminded me a lot of Franco Harris for the Steelers.
