Who is the best running back in Miami history?
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org || Twitter: @insidetheu
I think Willis McGahee was the most talented runningback, if only he didn't get hurt.
...........Even sponge knows its about the U
Frank Gore. So much talent and skill. Even with his devastating injuries he was productive. Love them all of course though.
Frank gore hands down... All said and done barring injury Duke gonna have something to say
All of them!!!! Period!!!!
Alonzo Highsmith but give Duke Johnson 2 more yrs and he will be the best
I agree bruh..The edge aka sweet feet5 was the best..if he would've stayed all 4 dude would've held all rushing records.. But DUKE is gonna be something special.. In the words of Comedian Mike Hart " Heads gon Rollllllllll".
"O.J." Anderson played on crappy teams at Miami with less then average offensive lines yet broke all Chuck Foreman's records. First round draft pick pick eighth overall pick. First Miami back to rush over a thousand yards. Rush 1605 yards his first year with the St. Louis Cardinal's which were not a very good team at 5-11. Played from 1979 to 1992 in the NFL finished his career with New York Giants fumbled only three times in 739 touches with the New York Giants from 1987-1992. He is only one of four running backs in NFL history to score rushing touchdowns in two Super Bowls and win Super Bowl MVP (only Franco Harris and John Riggins accomplished this feat before Anderson, and later only Emmitt Smith achieved this feat)
Chuck Foreman and OJ Anderson are 2 great backs that many Miami fans don't remember because the played prior to the National Championship teams.
Alonzo Highsmith was probably the best fullback and best combined Boxer and NFL player. Only 1 loss in his boxing career with 23 knockouts.

I can't name just one. So, I'll go with Ottis Anderson, Edge, Willis McGahee, Clinton Portis and Frank Gore
Hard to say, best athlete is Willis, Best Vision Frank, Best one cut is Clinton, Best all around Edge
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds.
Just took me to school.
I agree they were all great. Hard to mention another school that has had so many good backs.
Eddie Dunn, Donald Bosseler, Pete Banaszak, Melvin Bratton, Najeh Davenport, Chuck Foreman, Alonzo Highsmith, Edgerin James, Clinton Portis, Willis McGahee, Cleveland Gary, Ottis Anderson, Frank Gore and Tom Sullivan are just a few that come to mind.

id have to say edge even though we have had great ones for the past decade and a half id say him because he had the best natural vision, not as much speed he had a mini emmitt smith to him but its very hard to choose
USC's is insane:
Charles White, Marcus Allen, the Juice, Reggie Bush, Anthony Davis
I think its a tough question but Edgerrin James wins out
Envy the past, Fear the future
Wow, that's too tough! Lets not forget Melvin Bratton, he was a
Leader on the team and a damn good back.
"Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeeeelll what the Link is cookin"
Not even close!
