    What is your all-time Buffs team?

    Nominate your favorites and maybe one of us will get off our ass and do something with it for football that rises close to the level of what Goose is doing with our basketball history in the hoops forum.

    I can only speak for players I've seen so here goes:

    Quarterback: Darian Hagan
    Runningback: Rashaan Salaam
    Fullback: Hemmingway/Vickers
    Wide Receiver (2): Rae Carruth/ Michael Westbrook
    Offensive Line (2): Andre Gurode
    Defensive Tackle:
    Defensive End:
    Linebacker: Alfred Williams
    Cornerback: Deon Figures
    Safety: Michael Lewis
    Kicker: Mason Crosby
    Punter: Mitch Berger
    Returner:Ben Kelly

    These are off the top of my head. I could probably come up with better names if I had any sort of a memory.

    Quarterback: Darian Hagan
    Runningback: Rashaan Salaam. Loved EB, but Rashaan won our only Heisman
    Fullback: Brandon Drumm. Tough one here, as Hemmingway was a stud!
    Wide Receiver (2): Michael Westbrook, Mike Pritchard. Pritchard doesn't get enough credit, probably our best WR all time. Westbrook was good, but injured a lot.
    TE: Daniel Graham
    Offensive Line (2): Joe Garten, Jay Leuwenburg.
    Defensive Tackle: Joel Steed
    Defensive End: Technically Alfred Williams was a hybrid LB/DE
    Linebacker: Matt Russell

    Punter: Tom Roeun

    This would be my list as well except that I would put Barry Helton in for Punter. Leash has it correct on Prichard. He was truly electric and probably the best all around receiver we have ever had. I will also never forget watching him in the Pigskin Classic in SoCal when he stepped in for EB and dropped a 300 yard rushing day on TN. He was amazing and one of my favorite Buffs of all time.

    Figures was great, but I don't think Hudson is getting enough love at DB.
