    This one was easy. Take away Chubb’s injury season??? The distance would’ve only widened! DGD’s (all of these!) for life!!! GO DAWGS!!!

    For 6 games, yes. For a career, it's Chubb/Michel.

    But I would take Gurley over any of them.

  • pgjacksonpgjackson Posts: 1,584 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Aside from the actual statistical advantage of Chubb/Michel...what made them unique is that BOTH were capable #1 RBs. Marshall was never going to be a #1 RB. He was a sufficient #2, but he never had the stuff to be a feature back. Same with Brown. Chubb and Michel were both able to carry the load as feature backs.

    Gurley and Chubb would've been one of the nastiest in my opinion. The way we employ our backs now though would've been even more special with Gurley, Chubb, Marshall, and Michel. Could you imagine everyone healthy and hitting the field together throughout the game with the Payne Train leading the way? Sheesh.

    Best individual back? Gurley. Best duo? Chubb/Sony, hands down.

    Marshall was the #1 back outta HS and thrown into a gauntlet. I think without injuries his career would've arced like Michel since he was the better overall back not just the runner Gurley was. But it's a difference in perspective i guess.

    Why was Crowell/Ealey not a choice?

    Every one talked about Marshall coming out of hs but I told my friends that TG would be the man for one reason, he ran hurdles on his track team.

    And he ran hurdles over opposing tacklers as well. Lol

    Heck yeah he did. Robert Griffin is another outstanding hurdler.

    Loved the duo of Hampton & Worley.

    Yall are so quick to forget Gurshall. Big If, but if both would have been healthy their whole careers I don’t think y’all would be saying Chubb and Sony

    ALSO it’s pretty insane that Gurley, Marshall, Sony and Chubb were all on the same team..

    Marshal was never in the class of either Chubb or Michel though.

    No Brainer. Michel will succeed and possibly win ROY. Seems everything those **** Patriots do turns to gold. I'll turn the hate down on em since they picked two Dawgs. Gurley and Michel...starting backs at big market/ exposure teams. I think Chubb will be just fine also if he can escape the NFL version of Hades

    Marshall was nowhere close to Michel. He was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. Had a decent freshman year, but after that it was not much. A total of 1300 yards rushing his whole career.

    Michel/Chubb

    Since Chubb & Michel are the NCAA duo record holders for the nation? I do believe now that they are the ones that (as a duo) will be the MOST remembered for now, until perhaps another UGA duo comes along and breaks their collective mark. The bar has now been set. The number is now at 8,259 combined career rushing yards. That IS the NCAA combined career rushing yards record. That is freaking incredible!! The ones who set it? They are (and always will be!) DGD's forever, in the tandem of Nick Chubb & Sony Michel.

    Sony's freshman year: 410 yds 5 tds 6.4 YPC

    Marshall's freshman year: 759 yds 8 tds 6.5 YPC

    Not sure how you can say Marshall was nowhere close to Michel. Keith was never healthy after his freshman year. He was on course to be a stud.

    How?

    Marshall - 1379 rushing yards, 24 TDs. 7th round NFL draft (#242 overall)

    Michel - 3613 rushing yards, 33 TDs. 1st round draft pick (#31 overall)

    Very simple comparison. Marshall was nowhere close to Michel.
