Ricky Watters, Marshall Faulk, Terrell Davis, Edgerrin James, Jahvid Best, Saquon Barkley, Karreem Hunt, Alvin Kamara, Miles Sanders.
That’s a bunch of All-Pros, a couple of Super Bowl champions, SaQuads, and Cal’s own Jahvid Best. What happened to him?
Anyway, Miles has been fantastic so far. What a shame that he plays for the Eagles, am I right?
