Midweek Debate: Bishop Sankey

New, 31 comments

The Husky running back is one of the best in the country. We want to know how you see his season unwinding and where you feel his place will be historically.

Bishop Sankey has run for 369 yards and 3 touchdowns so far this year, while kicking in 75 receiving yards and another TD. These numbers put him on pace for a season of 2400 rushing yards, 19.5 rushing touchdowns, 488 receiving yards and another 6.5 touchdowns through the air.

Obviously, these numbers aren't very realistic (for comparison, Reggie Bush's Heisman winning junior season went 1740/16 rushing and 478/2 receiving) or at all sustainable. We know the Huskies will see defenses better equipped to stop the Husky rushing attack, and Steve Sarkisian has admitted that the early load placed upon Sankey has been a bit too heavy.

However, it's pretty clear that he's on track for a monster season, which could -- and likely will -- eclipse his monster season from a year ago. So the debate this week is two fold:

What kind of numbers do you see Bishop Sankey ultimately putting up this season?

And if he has the kind of season that it looks like he's about to have, where do you rank this young man among the all time Husky great running backs?
