    Please nominate your players. I would like to see more participation, especially since most users have been at their respective schools for at least a couple seasons. I am not sure if I have any seniors to nominate but I will check out my stats tomorrow. I plan to nominate Larry Walters if he chooses to enter the draft.

    Couple rules before I get to the criteria
    - Graduating seniors or players entering the draft early are eligible for this year's class
    - Please include as much information as possible on the player, I have provided an outline in the section below
    - I'd also like a picture for each athlete, so make sure to save one before the last game of this season
    - There is no limit on how many players can be nominated from 1 team.
    After we have nominees the league will vote on which player or players should be inducted. It will work on a point scale which will be announced once I know the number of candidates. It is possible for more than one player to get in but it is also possible no players are elected during certain years.
    Outline

    I am nominating Robert Jiles for the Class of 2014
    Overall Rating 84
    Position: WR
    Career Stats 217 receptions, 3320 yards, 15.2 YPC, 25 TDS
    Jiles holds the records for single season and career receptions, single season and career reception yards at WSU

    When I took over WSU going to Season 3, I knew the only way this team would turn around was by passing the ball. In the third game of the season 3 Robert Jiles shined as I believe he caught 10 receptions and the game winner against Clemson which was ranked #8th at the time. At that moment I knew I had someone special. His overall rating may not be the highest, but he was by the far the best receiver I have had at WSU. Lastly, when I took over this program it was only a 2 star program, now as Jiles graduates this team is a 4-5 star program and a lot of this progress would not have been possible without Robert Jiles.

    Giovanni Bernard
    Overall Rating: 93
    Position: HB
    Career Stats: 788 rushes for 3998 yards (5.1 YPC), 38 Rushing TDs; 80 Receptions for 642 yards, 3 TDs
    Awards Won: None
    Team Accomplishments: 2x Chick-Fil-A Bowl winners

    If you hit CTRL-F on our game recaps threads and searched for the name "Giovanni Bernard", you'd hit it over and over. Remarkably consistent over his 4 years: 980 yards his FR (CPU) season, then 1064, 944, & 1010 as a senior. (If I'd known he was just 2 yards short of 4000 for his career, I'd have gotten those before pulling him in the bowl game this year.) Injuries robbed him of at least 7 games during the three years I had him or his totals would be much more gaudy, but Bernard was the mainstay of the Tar Heel attack ever since I've been here despite topping out with just 87 speed his senior year. When you don't have many great players you get attached to them, and I don't know what we'll do without him next season.

    Name - Roderick Smith
    Overall rating -
    Position - Halfback
    Career Stats - 412 carries 2,457 yards 41 rushing touchdowns; 33 receptions 369 yards 2 TD
    Awards Won - 2013 Doak Walker Award
    Team Accomplishments - Big 10 Championship (1), BCS Title Runner-Up (1)
    Coach's Comment - Smith played in a pass heavy offense but still managed to put up solid numbers. He was a key reason we were able to lose just one game last year as he didn't allow the defenses to cheat on the pass game. This season the coaching staff made some bad decisions early in games and often we were playing from behind. This limited the carries that Smith received in those games.

    FSU DE Jeremy Miller
    Overall Rating - 94
    Career Stats - 111 tackles, 83 TFL, 44.5 sacks (FSU record), 22 sacks in 2013 (FSU single season record)
    Awards Won - 3 ACC titles (2012-2014), 2013 Bednarik, 2013 Nagurski, 2013 Lombardi, 2 time 2nd team AA (2012, 2014) 1 time 1st team AA (2013)
    Coach's Comment - Miller was one of only two playmakers on a rebuilding FSU defense for the past 2 seasons, and it wasn't until this season that he actually had some other athletes (although young ones) on that side of the ball to help he and MLB Chris Wright. He was great at getting pressure off the edge and also made several key plays over the past 3 seasons. Just a good all around DE that is likely the best to play at FSU when you look at the whole body of work.

    @Papa Perry - I do have James stats if you want him nominated for HoF.

    I probably should have saved the stats for Texas running back Davis but I was running late for work this morning and I knew the advance would take awhile.

    I didn't think Davis was eligible because he left as a Redshirt Sophomore. I still probably would not have nominated him as he put up solid numbers in 2yrs but not Hall of Fame Worthy.

    Name - Sean Salas
    Overall rating - 98 OVR (RS) JR
    Position - Tailback
    Career Stats - 536 carries, 3443 yards, 6.4 ypc, 40 td's
    Awards Won - That's not how we roll at USC
    Team Accomplishments - In the two years as coach Sean lead us to two straight conference titles and this seasons Rose Bowl victory.
    Coach's Comment - Sean Salas put up great numbers in our system despite being part of a 3 man rotation the past two years. With an extremely shaky quarterback situation teams were stacking the box but Salas had numerous runs where he would just run over, through and around defenders on his way to first down after first down. Salas leaves behind a great legacy at USC and begins the new era of "Tailback U"

    Yes Jeremy Miller should have been included. I was pressed for time when making the list so I accidentally missed him.
