    Back to running backs:
    What do you think happens, if after spring, some running backs are staring at not making the two deep anywhere entering fall camp? Knowing we are getting two that will leap them in the fall. That’s where I think the attrition will raise its ugly head.

    I doubt Kirvonte will have the same success in Patenaude's system vs the Triple. This offense is going to require much more zone reading by rb's which he basically had to do none of in the triple outside of an a gap vs b gap decision.

    Sorry to bump again, but I agree he would have won the starting job and if as good as I think , coach would be still here.

    IMO, Lucas has a good motion- less wind up - more up and out. Will see in spring if he can read PROGRESSIONS and stop, pop w ZIP.

    Remeber there is no two deep, per se. But I would be surprised if we don't lose a couple of RBs who don't find themselves Above The Line.

    It took a year to get him to not read and run thru the hole. I think he will be fine if he still has the burst.

    Imo, it will take the freshmen a while to get anywhere near to benson is in pass blocking.

    The guy was like a tree stump . He read the rush, -centered up, got just low enough then flipped the rusher.
    Needed even more next year. I would like to see him, griffin, Cottrell in at same time - run heavy package. Cottrell can block too.️‍♂️

    I knew that would come up. If the players don’t know, they’re not very bright.

    So why hasn't anyone else transfered if there's an issue? We had many players transfer under Paul. So was there an issue?

    Agreed, hehe. No question there won't be enough carries to go around, even with a few guys changing positions. Shoot, I expect Jamious to get 60 percent of them right out of the gate. Patenaude is gonna need to be creative, regardless.

    No kidding. I feel like I need to put a disclaimer in my signature so it's automatically appended to every post!

    Most of those transfers were either grades of playing tine and it usually happened after spring

    I’m not sure who will win the Starting QB or RB jobs but I do know they will be elite, we haven’t had this type of Depth at Both positions probably ever.

    RB, for sure. QB, I am not sure about. We have 5 of them, but only 2 were recruited as conventional QBs

    Not seeing elite talent anywhere on our team right now. It will take several years to build that.

    If the new staff is the problem with Parker, then why did we have multiple starters leave under CPJ's tenure? Were things not peachy then?

    His dad said the new staff wasn't the reason for the transfer. Maybe he is lying. At the end of the day, no one but Parker knows the real reason.

    Most likely scenario is that he left to improve his NFL prospects or play for a team that has a shot at a natty, probably both.

    Sometimes I feel like Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?"

    Well know more after spring in all likelyhood at least one qb will transfer my money is on lucas for that if he doesnt win the starting job and I wouldnt fault him KSU just graduated their qb and he could probably win them an fcs championship.

    Agree on the pass blocking. I think we have a good problem at the rb position with all the potential talent!

    From what I’ve seen from the new OC, Mason and Griffin fit what he likes to do the best imo. That’s who I think will be the two guys getting the most touches.
