Keep it in the Clemson family. It was before my time, but everyone says Skip Wise was special.

Sadly, I think DW4 has derailed a potential HOF career. Time will tell.

Instead of arguing James vs Jordan, we'd be arguing Bias vs Jordan

Excellent choice

Barry doesn’t need a do over, he had a HOF career. In 10 seasons too. Left the game on his own terms and never looked back.

I don’t know why I took the question as someone who’s in the HOF but would make it again if their career restarted.

Ernie Davis would have entered the NFL HoF, but he died of Leukemia at age 23.

I'd love to see what a healthy Sammy's career would've looked like.

Not that I liked him being a coot, and I certainly did not want him to give the coots something to crow about, but Marcus Lattimore's career being cut short was a shame for him.

That’s a good call. A great person. Not sure if he would have been a hall of fame type running back (NFL), but he never had a chance after the that knee injury.

How about Charlie Ward, if he had forgotten the hardwood?
