Former Rams running back Eric Dickerson in life after football.
Jilted players go hand in hand with any Hall of Fame vote. In an effort to write the wrongs, SB Nation's college football gang is rolling out their own Hall of Fame, and today's vote features a pair of pretty famous players from both the Los Angeles Rams and the St. Louis Rams. They need your votes.
Eric Dickerson is one of several running backs up for a vote. Because this is about these players' college careers, their is no need to rehash their professional accomplishments. Vote here. Here's the low down on Dickerson:
Eric Dickerson, SMU Mustangs
Part of the "Pony Express," Dickerson rushed for 4,450 yards and 47 touchdowns in his career. Dickerson had 28 career 100-yards games. All of that despite sharing a backfield with Craig James.
And Holt (Vote here):
Torry Holt, N.C. State Wolfpack
Total of 3,379 receiving yards is tops in N.C. State history. ACC player of the year in 1998, when he had 1,604 receiving yards. Had 31 receiving touchdowns and two punt return scores.
No offensive lineman before and no offensive lineman since has been a Heisman finalist. Pace and Jonathan Ogden are widely considered the two best offensive linemen of all-time and happened to come to the peak of their powers around the same time. Pace allowed but two sacks during a three year career and started from his first day on campus until his last his junior season. Former all-Big Ten defensive lineman Matt Finkes would say of Pace "he was so frustrating to practice against I would go lineup on the other side of the line... So I could face Korey Stringer." Pace is one of the three best offensive linemen of the last 30 years and it would be a crime to not include him as the actual hall's already done.
Any other former Rams that belong on the CFB Hall of Fame list? Remember, college accomplishments are considered, not their work in the pros.
