    The Candidates
    [​IMG]Isi Sofele - Cal [​IMG]
    276 carries 1404 yards(1st) 5.0 avg 16 TDs(1st)​
    85 overall 91 speed 91 acceleration 87 agility 82 break tackle​
    - Sofele is small back at 5'7 186 lbs. Coach IrishBearcat relied heavily on Sofele giving him the most carries of any back in the Pac 12. His quick burst coupled with his solid speed lead to a break out year.​
    [​IMG]Ryan McCants - Oregon State[​IMG]
    252 carries 1386 yards 5.5 avg 10 TDs​
    80 overall 86 speed 89 acceleration 75 agility 82 break tackle​
    - McCants is a big power back listed at 6'0 233 lbs. He bruises his was through defenses to the tune of 5.5 yards per carry. Coach MNoffke should be given some credit as he found a way to make McCants, who has average attributes, a star in his system.​
    [​IMG]Cameron Marshall - Arizona State[​IMG]
    213 carries 1348 yards 6.3 avg(1st) 9 TDs​
    87 overall 88 speed 91 acceleration 88 agility 83 break tackle​
    - Marshall is listed at 5'11 217 lbs. He has average speed but his acceleration gets him to and through holes where his natural running ability can shine in the 2nd level of defenders. His big play ability is evident as he leads the Pac 12 in yards per carry.​
    [​IMG]Jonathan Franklin - UCLA[​IMG]
    192 carries 1069 yards 5.5 avg 12 TDs​
    89 overall 90 speed 93 acceleration 89 agility 80 break tackle​
    - Franklin may be the most talented of the bunch and also the most underused. While UCLA was carving up defenses through the air most of the time, Franklin quietly made the most out of his limited carries. With his elite speed/accel/agility combination, Franklin was able to dance, dazzle, and move through Pac 12 defenses in route to a Pac 12 championship.​
    • 3 out of the 4 candidates are Juniors
    • Chris Polk lead the Pac 12 in average rush yards per game before getting injured and falling out of the race. Before the injury, Polk was a virtual shoe-in for the award.
    • The North and South both had 2 players represented.
    • Isi Sofele is the only candidate who didnt record a receiving TD this year.

    Dont forget to Vote!

    Hell of a write up CoachRedd, this is what I'm talkin bout!

    Is the poll going to be kept private, or does it show the votes at the end of a certain time?

    RB Isi Sofele had 101 yds on 20 carries and a 20 yd TD in the bowl game. Ended the season with 296 carries, 1505 yards, 17 TDs.

    I'm glad you put the Bowl stats because I just realized my player has bowl stats while the other 3 dont. If I can get -Cougars- and MNoffke to post their RB's bowl stats I will edit the post and redo the stats.

    The votes are supposed to be public.

    AND...you bet your ass I voted for my boy Marshall.
