In 2001, Gore's true freshman year and only truly healthy season at Miami, Frank was downright scary running the ball. That team had Clinton Portis, Willis McGahee and Najeh Davenport, who each have run for over 130 yards in a game this season in the NFL, and Frank Gore made those guys look like Division III prospects when he came into the game and got some carries.
The 2001 Miami team might have been the most talented of all-time, and the one thing I'll remember was how special Frank Gore was running the ball. It was similar to the way Adrian Peterson impressed everybody this year, though Gore is smaller but probably hits the hole faster.
Frank obviously needs to slim down; he's gotten a little too heavy and lost some speed in the past two seasons. He looks fat out there, along with Tyrone Moss, who I'm really down on right now.
Frank's family is in desperate need for money. His mom has some serious health issues and Frank is the man of the family and needs to take care of everyone. Even as a third or fifth round pick he'll make enough money on his first contract to help out his family a ton.
