    Early word on running backs

    There's no question that A-Rob is the man at running back, but Coach Pope said today that Schwartz has been coming on strong. I'm really looking forward to watching him get some carries. I think he exemplifies the "hit you comin off the bus" attitude and I bet he's going to be a big fan favorite.

    I saw that interview as well. Sounds like it's pretty clear cut, right now anyway, that ARob is #1 and Schwartz is #2.

    When asked about Bo Williams.... Pope basically said he still had a lot to work on. He thought he could be decent if he could learn the system. Not real great words of praise at this point, but it's still very early.

    Sounded like James White and Blankenship will definately be RS to me? Pope said they are both good hard workers, but still have a ton to learn. Remarked that he's hopeful they can help in the future.

    I am assuming that Williams is having trouble with blocking and getting to the right place. RB blocking will is critical in the spread because there is alway going to be a chance of someone getting past the line untouched.

    Re: Early word on running backs

    Has there been any talk about moving White or Blankenship to another position - probably DB? I know that we have a good supply of corners, but Ash has a history of taking RBs and making them awesome DBs (Hobbs & Hicks come to mind). In a pass happy conference like the Big 12 wouldn't it be beneficial to put more speed in the defensive backfield?

    McCarney hardly ever recruited enough CB's. Many of the ones who did sign either didn't produce or failed to stick around. Ash had to convert RB's in order to fill the 2-deeps. The current situation is a little different. The past few recruiting classes have addressed the CB position from both a quantity and quality stand point.

    Jermaine Billips(he may have been pre-Ash).

    Re: Early word on running backs

    Why would White or Blankenship need to switch positions??? If they red-shirt this year, then it builds depth for the future. White could be the next A-Rob as far as I am concerned. Same build and can catch out of the backfield.

    If you are on here long enough, you'd believe that McCarney couldn't do anything right......

    White has looked pretty good (and ripped for a freshman) in the short time I have seen him in the video's. Did you see the blocking drill for RB video? White did a great job taking on the LB's, and he looked explosive.

    Hobbs and Billups, Atif Austin, these guys were moved to DB because that was the position where they could be the most successful. We told these guys they could come in and have a shot at RB, gave them a shot, and then converted them to DB, where the coaches saw them playing anyway when they recruited them (at least in the case of Hobbs and Austin, and I think they always knew Billups would be a better safety than RB).

    I am very excited about Schwartz. It's great to have a downhill runner who can deliver a blow. I can't wait to see him play.

    Yeah he did I was impressed with his aggressiveness blocking. I'm excited for Beau Blankenships future in this offense as an Arob type player or maybe a slot receiver. He looks really shifty.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
