    RB situation

    Bruns mentioned that Duran Hollis got dinged up with a possible hip pointer. If he has to miss a few games, we only have 2 RB's that are available. Do we pull a RS off of Nealy or Standard if one other guy gets dinged up as well. I would think that would be in an emergency situation only and I doubt this would be needed. Any idea which one of those two backs would see the field first?

    Re: RB situation

    I think they only pull a redshirt if White or Woody were to get injured during the game.

    Re: RB situation

    It'll be Standard, if they need one. He's the pure RB from the class and was stated in fall practice to be close to ready to play.

    I think Standard is the more productive back long-term, and that is exactly why they should not burn his redshirt this year.

    Plus, Nealy gives you the pass catching option out of the backfield.

    Re: RB situation

    How long does a hip pointer keep you out? If we can get through KU, we have a bye week after that. Would give him 3weeks to recover.

    Re: RB situation

    Unlikely but I could see a situation that CPR runs Steele in at RB at the end of a game to avoid burning a redshirt.

    Re: RB situation

    I believe Gary was a RB at his JUCO.

    That would be kind of badass. We could do a lot of halfback passes.

    Re: RB situation

    I think we'll use Leo to get through the game if White gets injured before they burn a RS.

    That's what I was thinking too.

    Re: RB situation

    I doubt that CPR would burn a RS unless both White and Woody. I would think he would have a backup plan to avoid pulling one and still think he would only do it if one of these guys would be done for the year.
