Re: Davis or Lattimore?
Ask in 2 years. Davis is awesome and shows a lot of promise for sure. I think he's great and am very impressed so far.
Marcus was amazing out of the shoot- no redshirt year. His faith, maturity, leadership, character are things that make him a great person and I believe that carried over to the field making him and those around him better players. In other words, his influence on the TEAM is something unparallelled by any Gamecock I can remember and I was a student when George won the Heisman. And infact, forever I will remember the entire TN bench going on the field out of respect and concern for Marcus- that young man touched many through his battle to come back and his positive persistence for excellence.
Marcus played possibly beyond physical talents and just somehow made things happen that seamingly were impossible. How many second effort yards did he rack up?
Today, Marcus has my vote as he had time to prove much more than just a few games with outstanding results. My hope is Davis continues his great performance, steps up as a leader and in 2 years when asked the question posed above my answer will be- "Flip a coin because they're interchangable parts with greatness both on and off the field and are true team players who make a difference every down."
