The Trilogy - Jim Brown, Ernie Davis and Floyd Little

Sam Adams at the Rocky Mountain News has an excellent article related to the release of the movie "The Express: The Ernie Davis Story".  The article focuses on Davis's relationship with Little.  Davis recruited Little to follow him to Syracuse just as Jim Brown had recruited Davis.  All three wore the number 44 and each had an amazing career with Little breaking many of the records that were set by Jim Brown and subsequently broken by Ernie Davis.  The whole article is absolutely worth reading as is the video accompanying it (there is a link on the right side of the article to the video).  I will leave you with this quote from the article, but go read the entire thing.

"Floyd was probably the best of all of us in college," Brown said. "He doesn't get his due. The man should be in the (Pro Football) Hall of Fame. Here we are talking about Jim Brown and Ernie Davis, and there's Floyd Little - a three-time All-American who's probably better than both of them."

To be clear, Brown was talking about Little's college achievements but even that statement is remarkable considering that Jim Brown was probably the greatest all around college athlete of the last 75 years.
