BTN To Unveil All Decade Running Backs

The Big Ten Network, this week, begins to unveil its All Decade football team. They begin on Monday night, with one of the most loaded positions on the board---running back. It will be interesting to see who ultimately is chosen out of an incredible list of options. My guess is former Buckeye Ezekiel Elliott will be a first teamer along with Penn State's Saquan Barkley, but arguments can be made for many other great backs. Wisconsin alone produced Jonathan Taylor, Melvin Gordon and Monte Ball this past decade. In addition to Elliott, J.K. Dobbins and Carlos Hyde could get consideration. Other great options Big Ten options include Michigan State's Le'Veon Bell and Jordan Howard of Indiana. Ultimately, if I had to pick one, Zeke would be my choice. He not only was a electric runner, but he could catch out of the backfield and in terms of blocking, I've never seen anyone better. Not to mention, the one thing Zeke has that no other candidate does is a national championship ring--and a run to the title that included a 220 yard game vs. Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game, a 230 yard performance vs. Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and then 246 yards to cap off the title vs. Oregon. Just for fun--below is a trip down memory lane with some Zeke Elliott highlights.
