Jerry the Jacket said:If Andrews is our next A back star he will be our first one. We just have not had anyone break out at that position. I know some really liked Roddy Jones and Orwin Smith but neither really were All Conference first team or potential All Americans. Up to now, Coach Johnson's offense has not really produced any great a backs.
Anthony Allen was a great A-back. Of course his season at A-back we had 2 NFL RBs (including him) in the backfield and an NFL receiver which helps. I agree that Roddy and Orwin were more of running back by committee. Roddy threw a bunch of blocks that sprung Orwin loose and Orwin held a lot of players bringing back Roddy's long runs.
