UCF's Smith going for rushing record

Any thoughts on Smith going for the record today??

Here are some stats to think about when comparing Smith to Barry Sanders.

Smith 188 ypg, 5.8 ypc, 13 games
Sanders 238 ypg, 7.6 ypc, 11 games

Smith will have an additional 3 games after today's bowl game to break Sanders' record. Should this be taken into consideration when we talk about the record??

Smith has had an outstanding year, but as good as he is I don't think he can hold Barry Sanders' helmut. It reminds me of when Ricky Williams broke the career rushing record in tremendous fashion and then Ron Dayne broke Williams' record a few short years later. As great as Ron Dayne was in college, he wasn't nearly as good as Williams in my opinion. Smith with most likely fall in the same category as Dayne. He will break the record held by Sanders but he won't be remembered as one of the best ever.

GO OWLS!!!

I'm glad he didn't get it. To mention Kevin Smith in the same sentence as Barry Sanders is a joke. I'm sure all the UCF Fans think he should have won heisman. While his rushing total was impressive he did it in 3 more games then Sanders (probably Dickerson as well, who's now # 3 on the list) and Sanders had 225 yards and 5 TD's in his bowl game for which those stats at the time did not count. Pretty sad that a guy who has rushed for over 2,000 yards in a season would have been 3rd round pick or possibly 4th round pick had he declared for the draft. Goes to show you even NFL scouts think he's overrated

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

How about you let the draft actually happen and see where Kevin goes before you make asinine comments and further embarrass your "fan base".

What do you think 3rd round? AT LEAST 3rd round I'd say. Definitely not in the first he won't be a good pro player anyway except for warming the bench

Nah not really… You'll see come draft day when you sit there on the first day and watch the whole thing and to no one's surprise… Kevin Smith's name not drafted. You must be drinking the Kool-Aid if you really think he's a 1st rounder

There will definitely at least 12 RB's taken before Kevin Smith.  Especially with McFadden, Slaton and others coming out.

He'll be a 3-4th round pick.  Which I don't know what UCFers are upset about.  Curtis Martin was drafted in the 3rd round.

Like things, love people.

No, I meant your typing is on a 3rd grade level.

How do you know his words per minute? 

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
