Melvin Gordon Thinks the Dallas Cowboys Should Keep DeMarco Murray

The Dallas Cowboys appeared to finally get their act together last season on offense thanks to their ability to establish a running game, something they have not been able to do for some time. As nice as it was, it may not last. Two of the main components, wide receiver Dez Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray, are set to become free agents and will cost a pretty penny. Jerry Jones...

Melvin Gordon: Falling Short Of Barry Sanders’ Record “Sucked A Little Bit”

Melvin Gordon was an absolute monster for Wisconsin in 2014, rushing for 2,587 yards and 29 touchdowns, and posting a crazy 7.5 yards per carry on the season. Even with those ridiculous numbers, Gordon fell 41 yards short of Barry Sanders’ single-season NCAA record of 2,628 yards. He was asked about the record, and admitted that he was a bit disappointed that he couldn’t break...

Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Running Back

No doubt that the 2014 season will be one not soon forgotten in Badger lore. It’s hard not to always want to remember one of the best single season’s from a running back in the history of the game. However, 2015 promises to be very different. That’s because the Badgers have no Melvin Gordon to look forward to seeing run wild on college defenses. Instead, it will be Corey Clement’s...

WATCH: Melvin Gordon Destroys Auburn with Epic TD Run

Some said Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon was overrated. Some said he wouldn’t produce at a high level in the Big 10. Heck, some have even said he’s not going to be a good pro. We wonder whether those people watched Gordon’s ridiculous touchdown run against the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day. H/t SB Nation Did we just see Gordon carry that Auburn defender...

The junior Wisconsin running back, through three quarters, has already rushed for 208 yards and two touchdowns against Auburn in Thursday’s Outback Bowl. His latest score showcased why he’s considered one of the best running backs in college football. Facing a 4th-and-1 on its own 47-yard-line, Wisconsin, trailing...

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon Says Pittsburgh’s Paul Chryst Would Be A “Great” Hire For The Badgers

In all likelihood, Melvin Gordon’s final game as a Wisconsin Badger will come playing under Barry Alvarez, who is coaching the team’s bowl game against Auburn Jan. 1. Gordon, a redshirt junior, is likely to declare for the NFL following this season.  So, the Badgers’ Heisman finalist doesn’t really have to worry about who will be replacing departed coach Gary Andersen. Still...

WATCH: Melvin Gordon breaks record with 408 rushing yards

When TCU’s LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for an eye-popping 406 yards on Nov. 20, 1999, it seemed unlikely that anyone would come close to matching his total. Except Melvin Gordon just did it. In three quarters. The Wisconson running back racked up 408 rushing yards on just 25 carries in three quarters against Nebraska on Saturday, breaking Tomlinson’s record for the most rushing...
