I personally doubt ED, Charles Waggoner & CJ would have all graduated together from SMU, simply too much talent, someone would have transferred out.

I’m grateful for everyone’s contributions and the word ‘Greatest’ is open to interpretation, but if recruited today, I suspect the list would go something like this:

1st - Eric Dickerson

Next tier - Charles Waggoner / Craig James / Reggie Dupard (a 1st round NFL draft pick)

5th - Open to debate, but I’ll go with Dallasite Wayne Morris, who happened to have a 9-yr NFL career.

The M & M Boys with Alvin Maxson and Wayne Morris were pretty special before the Pony Express came along. Both went on to play in the NFL. Another in a long line of great RB tandems at SMU
