How does that support anything? Guess who else was ridiculous in college? Maurice Clarett, Cedric Benson, Curtis Enis, Darnell Autry, Ron Dayne, etc... the list of busts is way longer than the list of studs. Even the busts have nice looking college youtube videos. Arkansas runs a very wide open offense that allowed him to utilize his speed and look great. We all know he's got great speed etc... Most RBs that make it to the NFL... good ones and crappy ones alike, have youtube videos from college that make them look ridiculous. Posting youtube videos is pretty much meaningless for people who actually know what they are talking about.

we're not going to agree on this one, mcfadden may be a stud someday, i'm just saying 2 youtube videos is no argument.

I'm wasting my breath (so to speak) :-°

I don't know why I even try. There are 7 or 8 people that have posted in here disagreeing with GIG and none backing him. It is pointless. Good point Joel. I'm out now too... No use...

More than just him have told you. You show a couple videos and that is supposed to do something?

Got any film of his 17 carry 43 yard game against Auburn, or maybe his dominating 61 yard effort against FIU ;-7

My point is, a couple of videos can make anyone look great or terrible. Also, those games and videos are against college players and not NFL players. When you watch him closely in his games he does not have the make up to be a dominant running back in the NFL

My last comment will also be my last. It is fine to argue, but when someone can't even see the other side it is pretty useless. It is like arguing with your parents when they say "because i said so". McFadden is the best because this guy says so. Deal with it guys

I could bust out J Stew or Mendenhall highlights all day long. What would be the point though? Highlights are useless in this argument. What any of these guys have done on the field in college you can just about throw out the window....remember Reggie Bush? Look at some of his highlights, he was untouchable in college.

We've all seen the the clips...save em. Use your big boy words to back up your stuff dude.
