Arkansas running back duo named best in college football

There have been some pretty powerful duos of running backs in the past when it comes to college football. Who can forget the combination of Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas? Or what about Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson terrorizing the SEC? Or how about LenDale White and Reggie Bush at Southern California? They were all terrific running back duos. We now know the next great running...

Photo: Melvin Gordon, LenDale White And Chris Johnson Are Hanging Out Today

Melvin Gordon knows a thing or two about playing running back, and the Wisconsin alum and San Diego Chargers’ first-round pick seems to be spending time this Memorial Day Weekend with two other guys who do as well.  Gordon posted this photo on his Instagram a short time ago. In it, he’s with former Tennessee Titan runners LenDale White and Chris Johnson. It looks like the trio...

What Happened to the 2006 NFL Draft Class?

With the 2015 NFL draft just around the corner (Thursday, April 30th) I started to think about some of the past drafts and one that really stood out to me was the draft class of 2006. Pre draft everybody on the planet felt this could potentially be one of the better drafts of all time. From top to bottom there were so many great college players entering the draft that entire franchises...

USC Football: Replacing Buck Allen

Entering spring practice, the USC football coaches are faced with the tall order of anointing a successor to the program’s most statistically productive running back since Reggie Bush and LenDale White roamed Heritage Hall.  Buck Allen, a redshirt junior in 2014, opted to forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and make himself available for the NFL draft.  As Steve Sarkisian’s...

Chris Johnson Needs to Take Some Responsibility For His Own Shortcomings

Former East Carolina running back Chris Johnson was supposed to be the next great thing when the Titans took him in the first round of the draft back in 2008. He showed some promise when he shared time with LenDale White during his rookie season, but the following year when he got the bulk of the carries and gained over 2000 yards.Everyone assumed it was going to be smooth sailing...

The Most Undeserving Heisman Winners of the 2000's

Here’s hoping the Heisman Trophy voting becomes a little more rigid and meaningful and a lot less political.The former Heisman winners and the media decide who the best college football player is each year. The last three seasons, the voting populous got it right – but that has not always been the case. Whether it has been Eric Crouch of Nebraska or Darren McFadden finishing...

By any measure, Titans have struggled to run ball

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Ground it down to any statistic, and the Tennessee Titans haven't been able to run the ball well at all this season. They are assured of finishing without a 1,000-yard rusher for the first time since 2005. They rank 28th in the NFL, averaging only 87 yards a game, and are 23rd averaging 3.9 yards per carry. Nobody has run for 100 yards in a single game with...

Five draft picks why the Titans won’t make the playoffs

The Titans are still paying for taking bad quarterbacks in the top ten. Not once, but twice, over the course of the last nine years. Neither player panned out and they’ve already moved on to rookie Zach Mettenberger at this point. The Titans seem to be drafting better as of late so the jury is still out on how those players will develop, but their miserable season suggests they’re...

Comparing Sunday Night to Two Steelers vs. Ravens Games of the Past

Football is really a game of emotion, and when you look at a matchup between two teams you can’t just look at what’s there on paper. You have to look at the context that surrounds each match-up. The circumstances of this Sunday’s game remind me of two Ravens week tilts of the past, and I’m hoping it’s more like one than the other. Those first game was a November 5th,...

HAVE A DAY, LenDale White. Have. A. Day.

Deadspin - Former NFL running back and USC alum LenDale White was having a good time at the Trojans' game against Colorado, until he wasn't. White says he was kicked out of the Coliseum after Saturday's game; he also had words for athletic director Pat Haden and the program.Sounds pretty fishy to me.

LenDale White complimentary of Buck Allen's running style at USC

Don't ask Buck Allen what former running back LenDale White said or did on Twitter. He won't be able to comment. Adding to the uniqueness of Allen is the fact that the star tailback is not on social media -- he's oblivious to it all. "I can't even help you with that," Allen told a reporter who mentioned something to him about White's recent Twitter outbursts related to USC. Before...

Nelson Agholor caught three TD passes from Kessler in the blowout victory for the Trojans (5-2, 4-1). On USC’s opening possession Kessler found Agholor for his first touchdown pass of 16 yards.

Report: Former USC RB LenDale White Escorted Away From USC Locker Room, Angrily Tweets About Wanting AD Pat Haden Fired

Today should be a good one for USC fans and alumni. The Trojans had no issue running over Colorado, finishing with a 56-28 win against the Buffaloes. Of course, not everyone at The Coliseum is happy with how the game went.

Some of that criticism could have been aimed at the USC passing offense, which has not held up its end of the deal while the Trojans...

Tennessee Titans Possibly Have a New Thunder and Lightning Combo in the Works?

In today's NFL the trick to a good running game is no longer having one stud running back that can tote the rock 25-35 times a game for every game of the season. No, the secret to rushing success is having at least a two-headed monster (if not three). Kansas City is enjoying that right now with Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis and Philadelphia with Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy.Tennessee...

I love…the idea of Jackie Battle at fullback

When the Tennessee Titans have had the personnel to do so, I’ve long clamored for a bigger running back to be shifted to fullback. Even with LenDale White and Chris Johnson, I thought that a one-two punch in the backfield could be terrifying for opposing defenses. If said running back that’s being shifted to fullback can block, you’re losing virtually nothing from lining up...

Since the days of Eddie George in Tennessee, the Titans have relied on the power running game to chug the offense along.
