Who is #1?

That is the question that keeps message boards fueled up and running. There is no definitive answer. It's all speculation and left to the eyes of the beholder. The fact that there is no right or wrong answer will not stop fans from debating their opinions for days, weeks, sometimes years about who is the best, Barry or Emmitt, Miami '01 or Nebraska '95, Wuerffel or Manning? The list goes on and on.

Today, we are asking you the question. Who is number 1? Who is the top back in the South this year?
