Ranking the SU FB Eras

Buddys article (which made no sense) compared the 10 best years of Ben and P. It got me thinking of comparing the SU RBs. So I took a look at SU RBs that had over 1500 career yards and broke them down into eras.

1. Ernie Davis- during his three years (1959-1961) Davis rushed for 2395 yards, leading SU to a 26-5 record, a national title, and he won a Heisman Trophy.

2. Malcolm Thomas/Rob Konrad/Kyle McIntosh- this should be named the McNabb era. From 1995-1998 SU went 35-14. For their careers they rushed for 2199, 1524, and 1926 yards.

3. Robert Drummond/Daryl Johnston/Michael Owens- these are the guys that brought SU back. From 1985-1989 SU went 41-17-1. During that time they rushed for 2164, 1706, and 2009 yards.

4. Jim Nance/Floyd Little/Larry Csonka- Nance followed ED and then joined with Little who then joined with Csonka to lead SU to a 43-19 record. They rushed for 1605, 2704, and 2934 yards.

5. David Walker/Terry Richardson- from 1990-1993 the led SU to a 33-12-3 record while rushing for 2639 and 1523 yards.

6. Jim Brown- he started it all going 16-9 from 1954-1956, rushing for 1652 yards.

7. Dee Brown/James Mungro- while they did play a role during the McNabb era, they really werent the main horses until after. From 1999-2001 they produced a 23-13 record. For their careers they rushed for 2657 and 2869 yards.

8. Martin Januszkiewicz/Roger Praetorius- from 1970-1972 SU went 16-15-1 while these two rushed for 2069 and 1772 yards.

9. Robert Avery- he rushed for 1705 yards as SU went 15-18 from 1975-1977.

10. Jaime Covington- he held the fort the years before the resurgence rushing for 2188 yards as SU went 14-19 from 1982-1984.

11. Joe Morris- our career leading rusher with 4299 yards was only able to lead SU to a 19-25-1 record from 1978-1981.

12. Walter Reyes/Damien Rhodes- from 2002-2005 SU went 17-30 as these two rushed for 3424 and 2461 yards.
