    James White

    Everyone else has their thread, and I think James deserves one of his own. A couple of absolutely huge plays to help bring the Cyclones back and keep them in it. I love his speed hitting the hole, but especially when he gets into the open. It's been a while since we had a back who couldn't get run down from behind.

    Our stable of running backs is absolutely loaded for the future.

    His wheel route in OT was a thing of beauty!

    You could see him delaying, hiding, behind the line until the linebacker moved to the left to follow JB, then he took off.

    Yeah, I noticed that on the replay too. Just that 1/4 second was enough to have the defender drop back and cover someone else.

    He turned it up and on when he saw the huge whole to the left side on his long td run. He. Cut. It. Up.

    He is doing a great job and really easing the blow that came with losing Shontrelle for the year.

    Re: James White

    White has proven time and time again that if the O-line can get him to daylight he is a gamebreaker. The kid has the speed and cutting ability to take it to the house anytime he touches the ball. Having a threat like that in the backfield certainly makes life much easier for a redshirt freshman QB.

    Hopefully Shontrelle can recover from his neck injury and join White in the backfield next season.... and the Duck... can't forget the Duck. He showed he has gamebreaking ability too. My God.... we have DeVondrick and Standard as well.... The wealth he have at the RB position is absolutely ridiculous.

    You need to be careful saying this. We are one injury away from burning a redshirt on one of those guys. White goes down and we will have to to recover that dimension of the offense.

    When you use a smaller back, you better have some in reserve. They can go down to injuries in short order. Even if you recruit bigger backs this happens. Look at our neighbors to the East. Last year they raved about their RB depth, but through one calamity or another they were using a true freshman as their only option at the end of the season.

    This late in the season in that scenario they might consider having Woody carry the bulk of the load with West and/or Gary getting some carries as well. It also helps to be able to have your QB's carry some of the rushing load.

    Re: James White

    James White is crazy fast. A few times this year he has turned the corner and nobody has caught him. That speed coupled with Barnett at QB makes for a difficult match up for any defense.

    It seems like his speed is deceiving to a lot of defenses, they take an angle not realizing how fast he really is and he's gone.

    I can't believe I forgot about Woody!!!! That kid is a bruiser. Love it when he wraps both arms around the football and lowers his head like a battering ram going straight ahead. His 2nd run in the 2nd OT was a thing of beauty. Pretty sure he got hit by all 11 guys on Okie State's D and that couldn't stop him. BEAST MODE!

    True, on his first TD run I would have sworn he was not going to make it. Defender looked bad on the chase.
