Two Cal Players on ESPN List of Top 100 Running Backs of Past 60 Years

ESPN recent put together a ranking of the top 100 college running backs in the last 60 years, and although Cal is represented by two players on the list, one former Golden Bears star is conspicuous by his absence.

ESPN used the 60-year span because in 1965 the NCAA repealed the rules enforcing the use of one-platoon football, ie, players required to play both offense and defense. Two-platoon football took over and the running backs began to shine, being the prime offensive weapon until quarterbacks gradually took over.
