So much focus falls on the top two tiers of college football that we sometimes forget about the great stories from the lower divisions.

One such story unfolded today in Silver City, New Mexico, where Danny Woodhead of Division II Chadron State set the NCAA all-divisions career rushing record in a 21-0 win over Western New Mexico. The senior halfback broke the mark of 7,353 previously held by R.J. Bowers of Division III Grove City College, the only other player in NCAA history to rush for 7,000 career yards.

Following a 208 yard performance on Saturday, Woodhead's record currently stands at 7,441 yards in 38 games. With five more games on the schedule this season and 19 career 200-yard games to his credit, it's scary to think about what he could do to that record before his time at Chadron State is done.

Very cool. Think he could be drafted?

USA Today had a story about Woodhead about two weeks ago that suggested he had a future as a kick returner in the NFL.

My guess is that someone takes a chance on him late on the second day of the draft and he sticks as a special teams player.

In the second round of the playoffs last season, this guy rushed against West Texas A&M for more yards than we had total offense. He's really a treat to watch!

That said, Go Buffs!
