    Zach Laskey...he's working his tail off. I look for him to have a good year. Like what he brings to the table.

    He's a tough runner. Gets fired up and takes on anyone. Did you see him against fsu in the champ game and in bowl game. He was fired up in the defenses face

    Sims is gunna have his hands full holding that starting spot IMO. I think they'll split snaps 60/40

    Love the competition brewing there. I am expecting a dog fight this summer for that spot.

    Travis isn't going to lie down either.

    Travis won't know the play book nd will be behind on his blocking. Both things will cause pawl to give him the shirt

    Oh I expect Travis to RS but I expect him to compete hard. He is very talented and is probably the best talent we have at that position.

    Think he could be a decent back out of the pistol. He lacks the ideal size to be a good option at Bback. His lack of mobility surprises me and scares me some. I think he'll be in a few plays for some special stuff like a wheel route outa the backfield. He's not an every down back iMo

    I like both sims and laskey but i want one of them to take 70-80% of the snaps. I think as a team we need a real feature back that fills the stat sheet. We need one b-back over 1000 yards every year. As a fan I want the position to get that many but this RB by committee doesn't attract a Jon Dwyer.

    I think we should put Snoddy next to Golden on Kick Returns

    Snoddy doesn't have the ability to make a cut and go. His shuttle time had been discussed on here and ST before. His speed is straight line, he doesn't move very well side to side or in traffic. I love his speed but right now it's just track speed, it hasn't translated yet

    If Snoddy has that straight speed we should give him a shot situationally at WR in a big game. Let him burn some VPI CB and Safety down the sideline for an 80 yard TD pass. Nothing he has to go up and grab, but I'm sure it's easy to hit him in stride when he has 2-3 steps on the guy behind him. Probably won't work more than a few times, but his speed is insane if we can find a way to use it

    He's too damn slow.. And has 0 ability to shake anyone. He's just not a BCS starter.

    I disagree.  He's not any slower than Sims.  Btw, what the heck is a BCS starter?  If he's the best Bback at GT, he starts, it's that simple.

    Laskey's legs never stop chugging.  He is a more physical runner than Sims.  He may or may not be as quick or fast as Sims but he is just as good as Sims if not better imo.

    If you wanna get technical, Matt Connors may be the fastest through the first five yards. He hits the gap very quick

    if you watch the virginia game over again from this past season, snoddy has a couple of runs and there's one where he breaks through into the secondary and puts on a big burst of speed. i think he's easily our fastest b-back, maybe our fastest player. gotta use that speed somewhere

    Connors is a solid player. At this stage I think he is ahead of Snoddy.  I hope Connors gets a chance to play some meaningful snaps.
