I guess if we count part white there has to be some. Draw the line at half white then?

Who is actually pretty black. So the Momma has to be white right?

Nick Goings had a decent season a few years ago filling in, can't remember the stats but I think his season was alright.

edit: 821 yards and 6 tds, not quite, but close.

We have a dynasty league that drafts college players into a farm system. McGuffie lasted until the 3rd and was risky at that. He should be AWESOME in college. However his running style probably won't translate in the NFL unless he matures a lot in college. He tries to hurdle people constantly and makes moves that won't shake NFL players. High School it will work 99.9% of the time. College... a fairly good amount... NFL... nah... He should be nice at Michigan. With what Rich did at West Virginia... I assume he will bring that same wide open style to Michigan. That style will fit Sam well, I just don't see him being a great pro back....

my 2 cents.

Mike "You're In Good Hands" Alstott came close in 1999 with Tampa Bay with 949 yards rushing and 239 yards receiving. He had about 6 good years with them.
