LAME. JD or CJ is better than Choice or Ore.***
MaxPower
Locker room material - should motivate JD and CJ***
kjetz
I agree...Let them shove it down their faces***
colemanfan
I'm a big Davis and Spiller fan, but I disagree.
HokieHiVPI1
What about Choice though?***
maximusAF
Ore is not the BEST rb. He is the most productive on the
ctigers90
How is he not the best? He has excellent vision.
HokieHiVPI1
lol...
cugrad2000
You can't go wrong with Ore, Davis, Spiller, or Choice.
HokieHiVPI1
look at YPC-- not even close-- JD was hurt for latter part
ctigers90

HokieHiVPI1
It completely negates your First Team claim.
Catahoula
They did alot better....
BigCUFan®

Also, take a look at YPC from last year:
ctigers90
Only two ACC games w/ 100 or more yards rushing !?!?!?
BigCUFan®
But who does he REALLY have to share carries with?***
reflux
That's why he should be considered the best.
HokieHiVPI1
Ore is really good, but he's third string at Clemson.
cugrad2000
Alright...we'll agree to disagree.
HokieHiVPI1
What? That makes less than no sense. If he had to share
reflux
I wish Ore had a great RB to share carries with.
HokieHiVPI1
Your logic is outrageous...
Catahoula
