We still won without Marcus, but of course our defenses during Marcus' tenure were insane. Hard to choose but I will go with Davis on this one. Just my gut feeling.
Not sure how long you have been watching gamecock football, but Marcus won us quite a few games.
Both backs are fantastic though. MD has a little better measurables, but Lattimore had more of the intangibles.
