    Other than how he how handled his crootin, Jerious would still be my pick. So versatile and explosive. He single handedly got the FL coach fired when we "Croomed" them. I'll never forget the long TD Run to seal it. Would a Gayle Sayers comparison be accurate?

    Can't go wrong on this question but I'll give you why you would choose each.

    Miller - Miller had football speed. He had great hands, could block and was nasty in the open field with shifty moves. Remember that BYU catch and run in Provo? Still remember Mike Tirico calling that great run after catch. Miller time baby.

    AD - In Leaches O when the OL don't run block much and it is one on one, big man on big man. Give AD the ball and a cloud of dust and you got 5 yards. A weapon he would be in the air raid.

    Norwood - two words - explosive speed. Get him ball anywhere in space and its over. He might break records in this O.

    All three are True Maroon and all Dawg. Leach could win with any of them.

    Norwood for any offense. He was amazing in the Croom offense. Imagine what he'd do in the Mullen spread & he'd still be great in Leach offense out in space.

    Dicenzo is my favorite MSU player (to watch) of all time, so that's any easy decision for me.

    This is the correct answer. Miller and Dixon would both be good in this offense and Miller is extremely underrated because his 40 time doesn't match his football speed. But I don't think people realize how good Norwood was. He was better than his college and pro career would indicate. He was hamstrung in college by shitty coaching, and then he didn't land in the right situation in the NFL and also battled injuries. But he was better than Dixon and Miller.

    Dicenzo Jr. is faster than his dad, I wonder if he has the same moves on the field. I think he is just now getting recruited.

    Precisely what I think too. Norwood could do everything and was extremely explosive too. Love all of them though.

    I remember the catch. Seems like we were driving towards the north endzone and he caught the ball on the west sideline.

    I'd go with Norwood, but I'm a little young to remember how well he caught passes in college.

    My wildcards would be Josh Robinson or Vick Ballard. Josh was a bowling ball, but he was shifty as hell and could make catches. Vick could do EVERYTHING and I think a Leach RB has to be able to do a good bit of everything. His vision was his only elite aspect, and I think that would mesh well with the system.
    WHY IS EVERYONE YELLING?!?

    YES YES YES YES YES! Do you know anywhere where I can find that catch. It is so irritating that it isn't on ANY highlight real from State or anywhere. One of the best catches ever.

    Walter Packer would be the best--

    I played against him in Hs. Greatest back I ever saw in HS.
