Lindy's top 100 for 2010 Top 5
 
1. Seantrel Henderson
2. Lache Seastrunk
3. Darius White
4. Marcus Lattimore
5. Matt Elam
I'd say that worked out pretty good for us. Would not swap Marcus for the 4 combined.

Elam and Seastrunk were pretty good. The others, not so much.

Uh, Matt Elam was 1st team All-American. And Seastrunk avg'd 7+ ypc and was 1st team All Big 12. These guys weren't busts.

CHS, I'd still take Latti 'cause our program fed off his atti. How many of those others were even better men than players?

Your honestly telling me youd take a player that was a better man. Than a player that was a better player? Not saying latti wasnt as good as the other. Or anything like that. When he was heakthy he was the best in the nation. Im talking in general.

At the end of the day W's are all that matter for a program.

I'd take the AA safety and the RB who stayed healthy but that's just me. Appreciate everything Lattimore did but impact on the field trumps PR impact for me.

Elam + Swearinger would've been one of the most terrifying big hit tandems in SEC history.

Just because Marcus is a great person doesn't mean other players aren't great people as well.

Even after the way everything turned out I would still take Marcus and be happy that I got to see him play for us.

I would take a Marcus Lattimore any day, any year regardless of who else was available.

I would loved to have seen him play healthy for 4 years and see what kind of numbers he would have put up. Marcus has that rare unique quality to make others around him better.

Ahh, Tony, tks for trying to put wds in my mouth, but I said the ones I wanted to w/o your help.

W's don't just appear one day out of thin air. They only appear after a program has developed a winning attitude, and IMO Latti helped us do that more than any other player in recent memory.

Is PR impact really all you saw, CHS? If so, I pity you, not Latti.

You pity me? Are you being even remotely serious?

Latti had more of an impact on his team than those players had for theirs I would take him everytime

And play alongside the level of QB play we saw last year.

Weird, I could've sworn Seastrunk and Elam helped get their teams to BCS bowls.

I would take Marcus over those other guys every day of the week and twice on Saturday against Georgia.

Gotta also consider landing latti had a direct and positive impact on us getting some other big name in state player as well as the ambassador he'll be for us long term.

For me, once the garnet glasses are taken off, this is where lati's overall value for OUR program exceeds any SINGLE one of the others. I agree had he stayed healthy his on field impact may have come close to equaling even two of the others. He had that much upside as a talent. However a significant aspect of value for any athlete is his ability to actually be on the field and contribute whatever his talents are and lati is one of many examples of talent that be it injury,as with him or other factors like for some others, he was unable to stay on the field, unable to have the impact his talent indicated possible.
His most significant contribution was to influence the immediate classes in state that followed his and the potential still lies that he may have a long term impact as he combines his NFL plateform with the off field influence, character and loyalty to SC that several have mentioned. Lets hope for him and for us his NFL play earns the ear of current and future prospects. Given that ear his voice will certainly favor us.
