There is a difference between a draft bust and a team making a bad pick. Bo was a fulltime, all star baseball player that Tampa Bay selected with the #1 overall pick and couldn't sign. Bad pick. As a part time football player, he was a 7th rd pick. Good pick.
Even knowing what we know today, if Bo Jackson was in the 2013 draft and he was committed to football, he would still be the #1 pick in the draft. The other running backs discussed in this thread, like Blair Thomas, wouldn't be considered in the 1st round.
Winning winners who win > whining whiners who whine.
I dont see how you can put Kijana Carter or Alonzo Highsmith on the list
It is like the people who say Steve Emtmann was a bust
They had multiple, devestating knee injuries but IMO would have all been Pro Bowl players
Whoever said Bo Jackson hardly started any games has no clue
He was so good, he put an NFL and CFB HOF player on the bench
I also don't see how you can say Marc Ingram is a bust aftet just two seasons
Not all RBs, but....
Hawaii, Syracuse, Notre Dame
Hawaii, Boston College, Utah State, Notre Dame
Fresno St, Boston College, Notre Dame
That's USC's OOC schedule from 2012, 2013, and 2014. Who's hiding?
Wouldn't you think Alabama beats the best team on those lists by 4 TDs? Maybe something like 42-14?

Yes Reggie Bush is a bust since he has not lived to his top 5 pick billing, and is already on his second team.
I wish it was a conspiracy. That's just me admitting he was my favorite pro athlete and I can't accept he was mortal. Yes I know it's a double standard seeing as a couple on my list also were cut short due to injury, but I just can't accept it with BO. With some we assume they will be great, with BO though, most people from all walks of life were 1000% positive he would, it never was a question.

Looks about the same as yours, IMO.
Playing cupcake FBS teams is USC's claim to fame these days. Any old cupcake just to hold on to the ability to say you don't play any FCS schools. Plenty of FCS schools could beat Hawaii, Fresno St, and the likes. Hell Notre Dame couldn't have won the FCS National Championship this past season.
After seeing us play Notre Dame, I wouldn't say they were any better than WKU or FAU this past season. They were a joke and I feel sorry for teams that sucked bad enough to get beat by them. That rivalry has turned into a fraud and a publicity stunt and nothing more. USC playing ND is about equal to ND playing Navy.
WVU, Va Tech>anyone USC is playing OOC......and I agree that's not saying much.
Then take off Ki-Jana Carter for the same reason. ACLs were serious injuries 15-20 years ago.
F the NCAA
F the BOT
Reggie Bush is not a bust. He's been a productive player both for NO (albeit more as a receiver) and Miami. He was drafted far too high, but that's not his fault.
Injuries can definitely make a player a bust.
If they didn't perform for whatever reason, they are a bust. Sucks and terrible luck for them, but thats the way it goes sometimes imo.
Carter, Highsmith and others are busts.
What does it matter? Alabama would wipe their collective asses with USC and Kiffin.
Oh, and Alabama has a pretty good record of winning the "main OOC game"....also known as the BCSNC. STFU and GTFO.
Haha, your penis envy for Alabama is entertaining.
FSUe? theres only 1 FSU to my knowledge
weve got 2 on there. thats not a huge amount spread across 30 years
FSU Ambassador to the masses
This thread sucks now.
Teein' Off on Links
Assassin is super jelly of Alabama.
This is true.
He is definitely right there with old aubie as resident historians on the topic.
I dare you to tell David Pollack he is a bust to his face
Using your logic, Ernie Davis was a bust because he died of Leukemia after his rookie year
I use the word logic hesitantly

7-6, getting ass raped by a 6-7 ga tech team has left you butt hurt.
Wait till the sanctions kick in.
This is why i feel SEC fans should start complaining about other conferences conference schedules and why other conferences should always be behind the SEC going into the National Championship game or ALL Rankings...
Oh wait,,, That is already happening.

Dude can't be a USC fan can he? Why is he Talking about vacated victories? I mean really? What has USC done lately? When is the last time they won a national championship? Oregon's little Sister IMO..
Ask the Bengals if he was a bust.
Here is the definition of a bust that most go by:
"A draft bust occurs when a highly touted or highly selected draftee does not meet expectations. This can be for a variety of reasons, but the most often noted are injury or inability to perform at a professional level."
PS: I dare you to tell anyone to their face he is a bust. Bet you won't tell Jamarcus Russell to his face that he is a bust even though everyone on the planet knows he is.
