Halfway through his College Football Confidential survey, one star running back paused and took a deep breath. "This is hard," he said. "It's like taking the SAT again." Yes, we know. But bold questions require bold answers, and that likely 1,000-yard rusher and 134 of his peers provided that level of top-secret intel.
