Wanted some help on all-time teams
« on: May 21, 2022, 11:34:59 PM »
Now, for this exercise, there's no pleasing everyone.  I know this.  But I'm making all-time teams for Whoa Nellie.
I wanted to post who I've put on these teams and my question for fans of these programs is:  HAVE I LEFT ANYONE OFF WHO MUST BE ON THE TEAM?

Not nitpicking between similar RBs, not going by NFL fame, etc.  
Just tell me if I left someone off who 80% of fans of that team would insist should be on it.
Thanks.
.
Nebraska:
IBs - Rozier, Green, Phillips
WR/TEs - Morgan Jr, Bell, Rodgers, Fryar, J.Miller (TE), Anderson
.
UM
RBs - Wheatley, Thomas, Harmon, Hart
WR/TEs - Howard, Carter, Edwards, Mandich (TE), Manningham, Clancy (TE)
.
ND
RBs - Denson, Pinkett, Ferguson, Gipp
WR/TEs - Floyd, Tate, Gatewood, Brown, Eifert (TE), MacAfee (TE)
.
OU
RBs - S.Owens, Peterson, Washington, Sims
WR/TEs - Broyles, Clayton, Lamb, Hinton, Jackson (TE), T.Owens
.
OSU
RBs - Griffin, George, Cassady, QB
WR/TEs - Hill, Boston, Carter, Jenkins, Holmes, Galloway
.
I don't want these skill position guys to all be from the past 20 years.  I'm trying for variety while still getting the best guys in there.

not going to argue with Nebraska

Frosty Anderson??

80% of the fans today don't remember Frosty

Heck, they don't know Junior Miller or Johnny Mitchell

They'll take Frosty over the 25 guys with better stats but didn't stand out in such big-passing offenses.

I don't think I meant to do 2 TEs for ND....may sub in Rocket Ismail for Eifert.

I might take Calvin Jones over Green and maybe Johnny Mitchell at TE, but can't really say you're off on that group at all.

Yeah, Jones had better career numbers than Phillips, especially, but I feel like he's not held in as high regard (on the field).  I remember him and Derek Brown both doing big-time damage on defenses, though.
Mitchell was the other TE I thought about, but my customers probably prefer Junior.

I've got the big 10 helmet all-time teams done.  Working on the next 10 - Tenn, Fla, FSU, Miami, Aub, LSU,....ehh erm.....Iowa?  Warshingon?  Oregon?  Arkansas?
.
Hmmph.

I feel like everyone and their mothers could agree on the top 16 programs of all time are, in whatever order, but after those top 16......ick.  Clemson?  BYU?  UCLA?  There's definitely a drop-off after the top 16.  I don't think I previously realized that.

Anyway, on Tennessee.....it's tricky.  A few guys are left off because the played so far back and there aren't stats for them.  And then a lot of the name guys don't earn their way on.....no Jamal Lewis, no Alvin Harper or Carl Pickens.  No Willie Gault, even at returner.  And then at TE, Witten actually has crap stats, but he's kind of the choice by default.

No Dale Carter.  None of the Colquitts at punter. 
.
It's lame, I guess. 
.
The best thing UT has going for it is 3 guys who had 30+ sacks:  Reggie White, Derek Barnett, and Doug Atkins.  This has the highest sack rating of any team so far.

Guessing Peerless Price is there.  

Going back to N. The reason I think Calvin Jones over Green, he was A. Faster B. My recall is high avg per carry. No doubt shared load with Brown.

Green isn't even on the chopping block - Phillips is.  Green's yards, ypc, and TDs are all appreciably better than Phillips'.

I'd take Green over Phillips, but most Husker fans are enamored with Phillips for some reason

I just wish Green would have come back for his senior season to set many career records''

didn't care much about Phillips coming back

If you really want old school, there is Chic Harley, the player that basically saved Ohio State Football.  Ohio State use to be referred to as "The House that Chic built"

The man who lead Ohio State's first victory over TTUN
