Who are college football's best running backs?

Yes, we know. It's been hard to focus on running backs when quarterbacks have been stealing the rushing spotlight (Taylor Martinez and Denard Robinson, we're looking at you). Still, there are many RBs that deserve your attention. LaMichael James, Kendall Hunter, Vai Taua, and Marcus Lattimore, just to name a few. How do you size up some of the premier running backs from the college gridiron halfway through the season?
