ESPN’s David Hale compared the college stats of Clemson Tigers running back Travis Etienne and Florida State Seminoles legend Dalvin Cook, concluding that Etienne is the better back. I’ll concede that Etienne has the superior stats, however, supporting cast is important, and Etienne played with two generational talents at quarterback, as well as a far better offensive line. Who do you think the better back is? Whatever your opinion, I’m sure all FSU fans can rejoice in not having to play against Etienne anymore.
I loved Dalvin and did my best to convince people he should have gotten Heisman love. But there is no logical argument that he’s better than Etienne. And the comparison is pretty easy since they finished within 1 carry of each other. https://t.co/HYk866YYCh pic.twitter.com/r1C9XujcvN— ️♈️ (@ADavidHaleJoint) January 6, 2021

Tamorrion Terry and Asante Samuel Jr. are together preparing for the NFL Draft and as the old adage says, iron sharpens iron:
There were plenty of great coaching performances across the country to choose from this year (i.e. Luke Fickell and the 9-1 Cincinnati Bearcats, Jamey Chadwell and 11-1 Coastal Carolina), as well as bigger names like Nick Saban, Lincoln Riley, Matt Campbell, even Ryan Day. But your Pro Football Focus coach of the year is * drumroll * ...............................................Dan Mullen, head coach of the 8-4 Florida Gators:

Remember earlier when we made fun of Pro Football Focus? Well, now we’re not. Jalen Ramsey has been a monster in coverage for the Los Angeles Rams, and we have the stats to prove it:
