We all remember how good Bo Jackson was. Maybe the best
college back of all time. Super guy also. But here is a short Video you may enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-hn5pHK1Qk&t=170s

If so, we picked a lackluster football program in comparison to jump on the bandwagon to!

It's always been fascinating to me that the greatest talents as your prototypical oversized homerun RBs all came out right in a row. Walker, Dupree and Bo. There have been only a handful of others that were in the ball park of those three.

I'm gonna get beat up for this, but I think Bo was the best.

You shouldn’t get beat up for it. I share your opinion and I am sure others do as well. Bo was special. Not many athletes in history could match him.

I’ll back this as well. The guy threw out Harold Reynolds (& for reference, Reynolds stole 250 bases in his career, he was not a slow guy) at home plate from the warning track on the fly. The Bosworth play was/is overblown IMO (there’s not a LB made who would’ve stopped him with that angle) but that doesn’t detract from the caliber of player he was. Dude was 1 in a million.

Those 2 could cut and change direction almost like a smaller back. Walker had to stutter step before he could do that, or at least that's what I saw when he played for Dallas.

Maybe I’m alone but I just don’t see his career warranting him the best ever. Yes he was a freak and an injury shortened his career. But I don’t remember thinking he was the best back in the NFL, even when healthy. And without checking I don’t remember any national championships, rushing titles or Super Bowls.
