John Clay despite what some Badger troll fans would lead you to believe is still having a pretty nice 2010 season, as such John Clay has been named as a semifinalist for the Doak Walker award. What this means is that a group of people out their actually thinks he is one of the 10 best running backs in the country which just might mean he might be one of the best backs in the Big Ten and yes even one of the better backs on the Badgers roster.
For those of you who still doubt John's resume remember that he is averaging 103.2 rushing yards per game good for 13th in the nation while sharing carries and playing hurt. In addition he had a big game against OSU becoming the first back to gain over 100 yards on them in 29 games and followed that up with 2 touchdowns and 91 yards against Iowa, all in all two big wins aided by the star back isn't to shabby. The other thing Clay brings to the table is consistency with his 12 one hundred plus yard games in the last 14, not many backs can lay claim to that.
Ron Dayne of course won the Doak Walker award in his senior season and was a finalist before, the other Badger backs to be named semifinalists are Anthony Davis, Brian Calhoun and P.J. Hill. It is surprising that either Moss or Fletcher weren't named semifinalists but they were sharing caries most of the time. Of course the Badgers look to already have the next in line for at least a semifinalist showing in James White, but lets not look ahead.
Show some love tomorrow if John can tough it out and get on the field against Indiana, he has earned it.
