Default All-Time Gamecock Team - DB (Poll)

Now that the off-season is here, let's continue our endeavor to name the CockyTalk All-Time Gamecock Football Team. We had previously voted for QB, WR, RB, TE and LB. Those votes are still open and you can reach them by clicking the links at the bottom of this thread.

Now, we are going to vote on the greatest DBs for the All-Time Gamecock Team. This time you are going to vote for your top FOUR DBs. The top FOUR will make the team.

If you feel I left someone out, please post that person's name in this thread.

Default Re: All-Time Gamecock Team - DB (Poll)

I chose,

Brad Edwards
Bobby Bryant
Bryant Gilliard
Dick Harris

Note:I probably would have put Ko Simpson in if he'd stayed. I just don't think two years is enough to judge someone on.

Freeman and his damn comment after one of our clemson losses. "I guess I should have played the ball!" Damn it you are a DB! That's your job. To play the ball.

btw,
I still think he is a great player. Plus he went on to play for my dolphins for a few years, but I couldn't vote for him because of that statement.

Default Re: All-Time Gamecock Team - DB (Poll)

Two guys who I think deserve to have their names mentioned on the list are: Tony Watkins and Rashad Faison. I wouldn't put either in my top 4, but I think they deserve to be on the poll.

I voted for Brad Edwards, Ko Simpson, Dunta Robinson, and Sheldon Brown

I'll give my age away now, but Alex Hawkins and Bobby Bryant are two of the best to EVER play here. Bryant could close unlike any other. Alex Hawkins was just...Alex Hawkins.

I went with Harris and Edwards as the two best. Then I picked Dunta and Goodman.

Ko could have been, but two years is not enough to put him here IMO.

I wanted Faison in my top 4. The only reason he didn't get drafted was due to his size not because of his performance.

I voted for Dunta, Ko, Eiland, and Brown. Yeah, I hated to see Tony Watkins and Rashad Faison weren't on the list. I would have picked them both. I'm only 25 so I don't know much about some of those guys. I do know Rick Sanford is from my home town of Rock Hill. My dad says he was overated.

What? No Tyler Hellams? I may be older but a 4th quarter punt return for a 7-6 victory over Clemson is certainly worthy.

Default Re: All-Time Gamecock Team - DB (Poll)

I agree about Tony Watkins. The best tackler out of all the guys that made the poll. He was tough as nails. Some of you older guys will remember him playing with a cast on his hand after breaking his thumb. It was kind of criminal the way he used that cast! Another DB, not that I think he's the greatest of the DB's to play at Carolina, but I'd have to give Frank Adams an honorable mention also. Good return guy (witnessed a kickoff return for a TD, La Tech?) played above his abilities with a lot of heart against awesome SEC competition.

How can Terry Cousin even be listed as an option on this poll. He had a decent NFL career, but I'm sure most Gamecocks like me are still wondering how the hell he wound up in the NFL.
