System Players

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by NOTREDAMECHIEF, Apr 4, 2005.

  1. The JJ thread made me think of this one. What average player college player was made look great by the system? Whom are the most over-rated?

    What are we basing this on? Players who look great in college but not so much in pros? In that case, my answer is pretty much any option-style QB, or any QB whose strength is the run (except, maybe, Vick). In the pros, the run-first QBs don't cut it (again, exception: Vick), while they can run circles around opponents in the small-time, non-BCS schools.

    But I definately agree that the Fla QBs typically aren't worth a handful of poop in the NFL.

    Beat me to Klingler... Although Charlie Ward was the Best QB in NYC for quite some time.

    Name a Wisconsin Running Back.

    Ummm... Any Meatchicken Player wearing #1.

    Barry Sanders... Oops... no he was good.

    Ryan Leaf... Did we get to him? Akili?

    Any Texas Tech quarterback since Mike Leach got there. Although they aren't ever highly drafted, they do break all the passing records. For the same reason, Timmy Chang.

    Take it on step further with Florida. All of their WR's under Spurrier. How many got drafted in the first round? And how many actually ever did anything in the NFL? I'm sure there are a couple, but I can't think of any.

    Rashan Salaam at Colorado.

    Ken Dorsey
    Jason White
    Kliff Kingsbury

    Oklahoma's defensive back seven (except for Roy Williams) the last few years.

    Let's not rag on Chang...yet. Timmy throws the prettiest ball you have ever seen, but he's wildly inconsistent.

    You beat me to it!

    He was made to look like an absolute world beater by the Wisky system.

    Got the pros -- dud, significantly below average -- in a system that should have allowed him to shine once again.

    I'm gonna bring back that old signature if we keep on talking about that dope.
