    FSN: A-Rob the North's 3rd best RB

    Just read this breakdown of the Big 12 North's running backs by Fox Sports Net.

    They have A-Rob third behind Daniel Thomas and Roy Helu Jr.

    Your thoughts?

    That's not going to go over well with the "ARob's going to win a Heisman this year" crowd...

    Re: FSN: A-Rob the North's 3rd best RB

    What are the odds that when FSN did this they took into consideration how much time A-Rob missed last season making his overall numbers less gaudy? 3 quarters of the KSU game, 2 quarters of the Baylor game, all of the Nebraska game, and 1 or 2 quarters against A&M.

    That's okay though. A-Rob will have something to prove.

    Behind Thomas yes, but I would but him ahead of Helu.

    They will be in for a suprise, he was the 2nd best running back in the league last year and had a nagging injury.

    I think this is all about the potential they see for this year as, I don't believe Helu played a full year last year as well.

    Roy Helu Jr.??? Give me a break. Before that chump can even be ranked he needs to learn how to hold on to the football. He has a severe case of Adrian Peterson syndrome.

    Yeah, I know he missed some time last year as well. I'm just not sure how much.

    I dont even see either one out rushing ARob when we play them. This is fine with me, more motivation for ARob!

    A healthy A-Rob is better than both Daniel Thomas and Roy Helu Jr.. The only thing ranking him behind Thomas and Helu Jr. is the writing on the front of his jersey. I hope A-Rob and the entire team use the lack of confidence by the media as motivation. Go A-Rob and Go Cyclones!!!

    I hope A-Rob reads that.

    They did call us the Darkhorse in the North, so it was a reasonably complimentary piece. Not bashing on A-Rob as much as it was man-loving Helu.
