    2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    1. jarvis west. he is finally showing us what he can do the last couple weeks. he needs 10+ touches per game. i dont like seeing him take a knee a yard deep on kickoffs though

    2. shontrelle johnson. he can flat out make people miss in space. his numbers are not great because alot of times he has defenders in his face immediately. use him in the passing game, run the option with him. do whatever it takes to get him the ball with some room to work. i have never seen a back at ISU who can juke people the way he does. such amazing foot work

    Re: 2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    I'm a HUGE Jarvis West fan, and I would definitely agree that he should be one of our go-to guys

    Johnson? Not so sure. I like White more. Seems like when someone busts out a nice gain, that person is James White.

    I agree with Jarvis West, but the second should be Quenton Bundrage. He continues to improve every week. And I would rather see White get more carries than Johnson right now.

    I have to agree with Jarvis West for sure. Another guy that should get the ball more is Ernst Brun. He's been one of the more reliable options this season. (Already has school touchdown record for TE)

    I could not agree more. Quenton has proven he can catch reliably. And in the last few games he has had a play or two where he made a guy miss and got some more yards.

    (1) Hard to get the ball when you're on the bench, injured. Most officials will rule those incomplete passes.

    (2) He needs 4 more TDs to break the TE season record, and 13 more for the career record.

    Re: 2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    White is better between the tackles and it showed when we were without him, Johnson more dangerous elsewhere.

    Hard to argue that we shouldn't keep going to J West, 4 tds in two weeks. The way OU's defense played his big dive for the end zone could have been a 7-4 point swing for us. He did have a couple drops.

    Agree about Jarvis, disagree about Johnson.

    Re: 2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    Johnson ignores his block and bounces too many outside. He shines when the play is set up for him to run outside, like the play when Woody was in to block for him.

    Love Jarvis, but he was scaring me when he was juggling those kick returns and just had to down them.

    lol I read the thread title and immediately I thought West and Bundrage. Then I saw SJ mentioned and I immediately thought White needs more carries.

    Anyways, I'm excited. Not just for the future in general but these next three games specifically. Jarvis had somewhat of a breakout game last week and Bundrage had some pretty good catches this week and last week. These guys don't drop as many balls as most of our receivers although there were some, but have quite the ability to catch a ball and pick up some yards after the catch.

    Manatee fan here. Glad to see Bundridge getting some love over here. I'm not sure this years Manatee team could possibly be any better than it is but I sure hated to see Quinton and Quenton leave.

    Re: 2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    thats what i meant about johnson is that i like to see him in certain situations. white is the better all around RB, but shontrelle is fast and has amazing moves so he needs to get the ball somehow. not behind the line of scrimmage. swing passes, options, whatever. he really faked some guys out today... bundrage should definately see more PT

    Re: 2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    I actually liked the swing pass to White to give him a chance to run over some cbs. Bundrage seems to want the ball, ie going after it, which apparently you can't teach. West makes plays, causes penalties, and aside from that direct in the hands drop, is a nice playmaker. I'd like Chris Young to attack the ball more when he's thrown to, seems like he has the physical assets but not the mentality that it's "his ball".


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: 2 guys who need to get the ball ALOT more

    JW is such a better back than SJ... SJ doesn't run between the tackles well. SJ runs EVERYTHING outside without the speed to do it. SJ still thinks he can juke everyone but ends up going down at first contact.

    JW - yep!
