Are we supposed to assume since Cameron Artis-Payne is not a “me” guy, that Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb are?
Artis-Payne is one of the best backs in the conference, no doubt, and is definitely a work horse, as he leads the SEC in carries. But if you’re spinning stats to make a story, note that he’s well behind the pack in yards per carry. (Georgia’s two selfish bastards rank ahead of him.)
If he’s longing for recognition, CFN has some advice:
There’s no hotter running back in the country than Auburn senior Cameron Artis-Payne, who was one of the big bright spots against Texas A&M, tearing off 221 yards and two touchdowns averaging 7.37 yards per try. With a good mix of speed and power, he’s doing a great job of being the new Tiger running star, with seven 100-yard running games in the last nine outings. With WR D’haquille Williams out with a leg injury, Artis-Payne will have to do even more.
If Auburn wins, he’s likely to play a big part in that. The acclaim will follow. Sorry if that’s not good enough.
