how can you be the best player in college?
- Marcus Allen

It actually took me a year to learn how to play running back -

It's so unfair, because there is a bias that takes place.
- Marcus Allen

I just felt like reflecting on my junior year,
when I didn't know what I was doing,
I left a lot of stuff out there.
Actually, I gained close to 700 yards more and I took
myself out of a lot of games.
- Marcus Allen

You know, I think when I reflect on it,
I think there's certainly a sense of history.
When you have ambitions to play this game,
you want to be one of the best ever,
and you want to play so well and be so effective that
you want people to remember your name 100 years from now.
- Marcus Allen

You've got to be extremely careful, because you could be with a great team,
and you could be the product of a great team.
There are some players that stand out despite the teams that they play on,
and there are some players that are good because of
the team that they're with.
- Marcus Allen

It really lasted the whole game, because I was really untouchable,
unstoppable that game.

it was really amazing.
- Marcus Allen

Going in, I knew I wasn't one of the top ones,
because I didn't even make the pre-season All-American team.
That shows you what people thought of me right there,
so I knew I had to go to work.
- Marcus Allen

To be a winner of that, and to fall in the long line
of traditional great backs at USC,
to have your name in perpetuity, the fact that your
parents are like icons...
that's the greatest thing.
- Marcus Allen

That's why, to experience that, you know for a fact
that a human being is capable of so much more,
because to go to that place and to step outside yourself
and observe yourself do these things,
while the rest of the world is moving in slow motion,
is really incredible.
- Marcus Allen

because you are doing something against nature.
