The SEC has produced one great running back after another over the past 30 years, from Auburn’s Bo Jackson to Florida’s Emmitt Smith to Georgia’s Herschel Walker.
With two historic seasons under his belt, Arkansas’s Darren McFadden is poised to join those great players in the annals of SEC and college football history.
McFadden and Walker are the only backs in conference history to rush for at least 1,000 yards in their freshman and sophomore years.
Former Georgia coach Vince Dooley said of McFadden, “He’s giving people fits and he’s going to give them more fits. I definitely think he’s the most exciting back since Herschel and Bo (Jackson).”
