    If Chubb is not injured, Walker is in his rearview mirror. I watched both in person and HW has nothing on Chubb. So to say he is heads and shoulders above everyone else is simply wrong. The stats do not lie.

    Running: HW = 5.3 ypc NC = 6.3;

    Receiving: HW = 9.3 ypc NC = 11.6 ypc;

    Yds from Scrimmage: HW = 5.4 NC = 6.5

    Walker's stats from his Bowl games are not counted. Which is a d-a-m-n shame because if they were included Tim Tebow would not have broken his record. It's insanely unfair Walker's Bowl Game stats are included, but Tebow's stats are included.

    I would think a good stat to enable such comparisons would be a stat of each of the above Georgia great's best single season, not just their career stats. With Georgia's current talent level and platoon philosophy for most position groups, it will be difficult for a player under Smart to match those career numbers.

    @CDDawgs The point is the volume Herschel had and the burden of the offense he had to carry. Chubb was able to come out and rest when needed, and UGA also had good offensive weapons around him.

    The fact Herschel AVERAGED 30 carries a game is pure greatness, and he played with a separated shoulder to deliver a national title.

    Few belong in the same sentence with Herschel Walker, arguably the greatest College Football Player of all time.

    NC27 is one of my all-time favorite Dawgs. I own 2 jersey's, one is Herschel's (shipping mistake) and one is Chubbs. That being said, Herschel is still the GOAT.


    NC27 played in 47 games through his career at GA, HW34 played in 36, 3 of which I don't think include stats as they were bowl games and those weren't counted at the time. NC27 had the benefit of an entire season's worth of games more than HW34 and still was 500 yards short. HW34's yards came against defenses that KNEW he was getting the ball, and they still barely could slow him down.


    Chubb played in 6 games the season he was injured. He had amassed 747 yards on 92 carries (this against a couple of tune-up teams). Add 650 yards to that and 120 more carries, based on a rough average of his other season averages and that puts him at around 5,400 yards total for his career on around 880 carries. By comparison that's 150-200 yards more career yards than HW34 and 115 fewer carries. With what would have been around 56 games played to HW34's 36 games played. There's nothing in there to suggest he would have left HW34 in his rear-view mirror.


    By that same thinking, give HW34 another half season and he's gonna be closer to 6,000 career yards on 1,150 career carries. Give him a whole other season and chances are HW34's rushing record would have never been broken, across all of college football.


    I understand yards per carry is better for NC27, but he got breaks and breathers. HW34 didn't. I'm too young to have remembered HW34 playing, but I do understand what he did and how significant and dominants it was. He's a player I don't think will ever be matched.
