    A-Rob cracks the Top 10 nationally in rushing yards

    With 453 total and just 11 yards behind the top rusher in the conference.

    KSU's Thomas is right behind A-Rob. Who would've guessed the game at Arrowhead featured two of the top rushers in the country?

    Heh, and there were still people arguing for him not to be the starter this year. He's special, and he's probably still not getting enough touches.

    Do you know how serious his injury is?

    Good for ARob. Hope the groin doesn't bother him. He's off to a great start.


    You can have it Fast, Cheap, Reliable.....Please pick TWO!

    this isnt true... most of the people on this board were very clear coming into this year that A-Rob was the man, but everyone was speculating if Schwartz or Bo would takes some touches from him, and if so, how many.

    Pretty sure no one was wanting A-Rob out of the starting spot.

    You still heard it on occasion.

    I hope he's healthy, fwiw.

    Re: A-Rob cracks the Top 10 nationally in rushing yards

    ARob IS our team right now. Hope that groin isn't too serious.

    Who would start in his absence? Swartz? would we throw a lot more? Either way we'd be in big trouble.

    Oh no, it's true. A decent number of people wanted Bo to start right away and that player is not even in the 3 deeps.

    Re: A-Rob cracks the Top 10 nationally in rushing yards

    I still think that time will show that A Rob isn't the best back that we have on scholarship right now. I am glad to see though that this offensive set has allowed him to make good reads and show his talent. With the way he's playing right now and assuming he stays healthy, I can see him cracking into that 1200 yard season category. I hope his ankle is better by KSU.

    And who exactly do you think is the best RB on this team?

    Please state who is better and put some facts behind your position.

    You ARE aware Troy Davis doesn't play for us anymore correct?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: A-Rob cracks the Top 10 nationally in rushing yards

    I was excited about Bo with all the hype. With that being said, if he was good enough to be our ARob he would be playing now. You could see last year that ARob had some special talents. Now with defenses set up to stop the pass Herman knows to give him the rock and let him have at it.

    No kidding. Why would we be running him nearly exclusively if he wasn't the best back.
