Barry Sanders -- best ever -- Not debatable

by shane

This is NOT debatable. I know this is an sec website so you have to put YOUR best player ever and say it was THE best player ever but im sorry, barry sanders cannot be contested.

His Heisman year, barry sanders set 34 (34? yeah, 34) NCAA records. Were not talking conference or team records here, herschel, were talkin NCAA.

Over 2,600 yards (thats just rushing. add about 1000 more yards for all purpose) 39 touchdowns. (difficult to do even on playstation.) all of this in 11 games. rushed for 300+ yards in FOUR games. Averaged 7.6 ypc.

7.6 Thats 2 first downs every 3 plays.

IN 11 GAMES. 11. JUST 11.
THEN, during the Holiday Bowl, he scored 5 TD's AND rushed for 222 yds IN THE FIRST 3 QURATERS. He sat out the 4th quarter.

If you can derive any kind of argument against this guy as the best player ever, e-mail me at

There can be no question or argument that Barry Sanders was the greatest NCAA football player of all time. The person who posted previous to this said it clearly.

In 12 games, he rushed for 2850 yards. This was before they counted bowl game stats in regular season stats. By the way, this was all done his Junior year.

I'm not a Oklahoma State fan or a Detroit Lions fan, but I've yet to see anything close to Barry Sanders in NCAA.

Arguably, Barry Sanders is the best NFL rusher. Put him on almost any other team in the NFL that had a O-line, you may have seen a 20,000 yard rusher.
