Ranking the runners

Ranking the runners

I'm about to turn in my vote for the Doak Walker Award finalists. We are given 10 semifinalists and asked to rank them from 1 to 10.

Here's my top five. Let me know what you think:

1. LaMichael James, Oregon. The nation's leading rusher showed his stuff against Stanford.

2. Montee Ball, Wisconsin. He's got 27 touchdowns. No need to write anything else.

3. David Wilson, Virginia Tech. The best player on the most underrated team in the country.

4. Trent Richardson, Alabama. Didn't have his best game in Alabama's lone loss.

5. Joseph Randle, Oklahoma State. He has 21 rushing touchdowns for a team that throws all the time.
