Sports Illustrated Declares This College Football Program 'Running Back U'
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Sports Illustrated declared Alabama "Running Back U"...
quote:

In an era when the running back has been devalued, Alabama has had three RBs drafted in Round 1 since 2010, the only program that can boast that accomplishment. Late-first-rounders Mark Ingram (2011) and Josh Jacobs (’19) have delivered, while Trent Richardson (the No. 3 pick in ’12) is more of a cautionary tale. Overall, the Tide has had 10 running backs drafted over the past decade—no other program has had more than eight (our rankings include fullbacks, such as Bama alum Jalston Fowler, a fourth-round pick in ’15).

Read how they determined it here.

I knew it was Bama because of the bias but Georgia or Wisconsin should've been #1.

There was one week last season that Bama had 5 or 6 rbs starting for NFL teams. That is impressive

Not sure if the numbers, but Wisconsin always seem to have a solid back!

If you take actual history into account I'm pretty sure USC or Ohio St wins with Bama nowhere close
