STAR WARZ: REGGIE BUSH VS. LEONARD FOURNETTE

STAR WARZ: REGGIE BUSH VS. LEONARD FOURNETTE
Match-Up: Reggie Bush vs. Leonard Fournette The War: Who’s Better? Match-Up Preview: Two revolutionary college players go head to head to find out who is No. 1. USC tailback Reggie Bush is known by many as the greatest college football player that has ever lived. LSU Leonard Fournette has only been in college football for 1 year and a half and the sophomore tailback has already broken numerous NCAA records and has put together a very stellar Heisman campaign. Reggie Bush seen as a god in Southern California, a sportscenter highlight every time he touched a football. Leonard Fournette is already a Bayou legend, but is only scratching the surface of what he can really do. Today, Kaboom! Magazine.com “Star Warz” goes in-depth into both of the college careers of Reggie Bush and Leonard Fournette to find out the answer to arguably one of the toughest question in NCAA history…….who’s the better player? Tale of the Tape: 13-leonard-fournette-rb-lsu_pg_600 Leonard Fournette AKA: The Beast Pos: Tailback Height: 6’1” Weight: 230 College: LSU Career Highlights: 2x USA Today High School All-American, & 2014 ESPN #1 High School Football Recruit Strengths: LSU’s sophomore has been the most dominant player in the country, and one of the most physically gifted runners in college football history. Fournette may only be 19 years old, but that doesn’t the fact that he is a man amongst boys on that football field. He is the most complete tailback that we’ve have seen coming into college since Adrian Peterson. He has the speed to run past you and the power to run through you. He is also an exceptional blocker in the passing game and can catch the ball coming out of the backfield, making him a threat on 3rd and long. For being such a young back, Fournette has already shown that he can shoulder the load highlighted by a career-high 31 carries performance against top 10 ranked Florida where he ran for 180 yards and 2 TDs. When Leonard Fournette has the ball in his hands, you either do one of three things….lead, follow, or get the f*ck out the way. Weakness: Potential is a lot like pressure, you can either turn into a diamond or a very busted pipe. Leonard Fournette is already looking like a once-in-a-generation athlete, but with the pressures of ESPN fame, a college playoff run, a very tough SEC conference, and a Heisman trophy campaign he can quickly become the likes of Joe McKnight, Knile Davis, or Lorenzo Booker. Another weakness for Fournette is we just don’t know if his body can hold up to the punishment of college football. Everyone knows that Fournette can punish a defense, but with all the carries, plus blocking, and cheap shots every defense gives him to slow him down; he can easily become the next Todd Gurley than Bo Jackson. Only time will tell. ncf_g_rbush1_576 Reggie Bush AKA: The President Pos: Tailback Height: 5’11” Weight: 205 College: USC Career Highlights: 2x AP National Championship, 2× Consensus All-American, 2004 BCS National Championship, 2005 Doak Walker Winner, 2005 Walter Camp Award Winner, 2005 AP College Football Player of the Year, & 2005 Heisman Trophy Award Winner. Strengths: The college football version of “The Flash”, Reggie Bush is arguably the most electrifying college football player ever. He was a dynamic playmaker as a runner, receiver, and returner. Outstanding agility and quickness, Reggie always had the breakaway speed to take any touch the length of the field….and normally he did. Weakness: Was Reggie Bush a tailback who could be a wide receiver or a wide receiver who could be a tailback? Reggie was never your traditional tailback which was an incredible gift to have, but also could be a limited curse. It’s no secret that Bush only needed 2 or 3 plays to put the game out of reach as he has always been a home-run threat. East or west Reggie could get the angle and leave defenders in the dust, but when SC needed him to go north and south for the tough yardages on 4th and 1, he was about as useful as tits on a bull. The presence of LenDale White precluded Bush from demonstrating he can find the same success needing to run inside more and proving he can handle carrying the load throughout a season. dt.common.streams.StreamServer And the winner is……: Instagram or twitter? Prince or Michael Jackson?cookies and cream or chocolate chip ice cream? When you’re starting a fantasy college football team, you couldn’t go wrong with either Bush or Fournette. It’s more about personal choice, if you asked 10 people who would they rather have on their team Bush or Fournette? you will get 5 for Bush and 5 for Fournette.  It would be great if we could have both, but since we can only choose one, we have no choice but to go with none other than…………Leonard Fournette. Reggie Bush is a Ferrari that everyone dreams of having, but Leonard Fournette is the durable Dodge truck that everyone can afford, but can do everything you ever need. Both men had the speed to leave defenders in the dust, both could break linebackers ankles with incredible spin moves, and both are exceptional pass cathers, but only Leonard Fournette could actually be effective on all four downs and inside the goalline. Bush was like a unicorn at USC, but with talent like Matt Leinart, Lendale White, Steve Smith, Dwayne Jarrett, and many other stars you could name, he never had to put a team on his back and carry them to a championship like Fournette has proven he can do at LSU. Ultimately you just have to ask yourself one question “If you were a defender who would you be more terrified to see coming your way Reggie Bush or Leonard Fournette?” 10 times out of 10 you’re gonna say Mr. Fournette.
