Speaking of years Florida gave someone a costly only loss
Caused one of Sean McDonough's best voice cracks, lol.  "Green is behind the DEeEfense!!"

'97 FSU defense:  allows 40 yards rushing per game
'97 Fred Taylor:  160 yards and 4 TD

ELA, your order includes a first:  a team with 2 QBs, both of which contributed to the running game, but who's stats were so different, I need to make 2 unique rushing charts. 

2003 Penn State - Zach Mills and Michael Robinson

Like I said, it would be better if there was some amount of strategy involved, and if it was a DVD where you could scramble which plays were involved.  I also recall that there were too many decently positive gains, compared to negative or zero plays, that it was almost impossible not to score without turnovers
The college version had an outsized sample of BYU clips.

I guess I didn't remember Robinson being that involved in the 2003 team

We had some out of town family in that weekend.  We were all Gators that Saturday

Is there a more underrated RB in NFL history than Fred Taylor?  Maybe Frank Gore.  Is anyone aware that Gore went over 16,000 yards rushing?  The 3rd man to ever do that.

Curtin Martin was underrated until he wasn't.  

Taylor was 225 lbs and outran CBs.  He played in Jax and never had a lot of TDs.  But he was truly great.

And I see that I've gone and posted NFL stuff in my own college thread.  

I'm the biggest hypocrite here.

ELA, you mentioned The Game That Shall Not Be Named. 

I can still see one screen pass after another going to Chris Perry in the 4th quarter.

Taylor was 225 lbs and outran CBs.  He played in Jax and never had a lot of TDs.  But he was truly great.
Felt like injuries capped him in spots. Also was a little lost in a nice era for top RBs. Couldn't make the Pro Bowl much and was only twice better than 9th in yards. Seven nice to very nice years in Jacksonville, six sub-1,000. Nice receiver a few years there. 

I don't know I'd call him the most underrated (I don't know who would be). His talent and ability were great, but injuries kinda kept him just below that level. 

(One interesting thing is how "rated" changes. Like Corey Dillon was super good for a while and had that one super year in New England, but these days, does anyone care?)

Dillon was the first big college football player I was aware of as a JC transfer.  I know there had to be many successful ones before him, but he was the first I knew of as it was happening.
.
For Taylor, I had just watched a highlight video and he just routinely outran players 30 lbs lighter than him.

He came into the NFL right as I was getting into fantasy football, so he was definitely never underrated in my sphere

I'd bet you less than 5% of hardcore NFL fans know Frank Gore is 3rd in all-time rushing yardage.

I was a big fan of Sweetness for many reasons, so I follow those who get close or pass him.

I wonder how many more yards he would have had running behind that OL in Dallas all those years. 
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

Of course he's 3rd all time. He's been in the NFL since 1964. Only active NFL player with an AARP card. :57:
