    I think Woody will have a huge year for the clones this year. Possibly leading the team in touchdowns due to his involvement in the passing game from what we hear of the new pistol and using him similar to a tight end. Not to mention the doubt that some on here have about our oline the big bruiser only makes sense. Thoughts?

    As long as ISU isn't handing the ball off to him in the zone read from their own 1 yd line again...

    We need more Woody! I think every knows that, not just at goal line when it's expected either. I see him getting 8-10 touches a game.

    I think rhoads does that to get some positive yards instead of White getting tackled in the end zone for a safety

    I think James White will lead us in TD's (not counting Richardson obviously). I do think Woody will have a nice year though

    I think Sam Richardson will light up some eyes with his running also.

    Nealy is a perfect back for the pistol set. And have to think that Wimberly being such an explosive runner will do great things this fall too. We are soooo stacked at RB!

    Not sure how I feel about this, I like the idea and ability of SR running, but hopefully it's by design and not necessity. And if it is design, then I hope it's not an awful lot, because if it is, then that means our RBs aren't getting it done and we run the risk of injury.

    Agree. Would prefer if we never called SR to run, and he only ran on busted plays, recvrs covered, etc. Less abuse to your QB and less likely to take a big hit running in that situation (I think).

    As far as Woody, who knows. There's talk of him doing everything except kicking PATs. I could see it and I think he can help in different roles. But I don't expect anyone to put up big numbers of carries, yards, etc. Just too many options at RB and receiver, and none seem to be world-beaters. So expect the offense to have a lot of different heroes in different games.

    I don't care if it's a walk on I've never heard of - I just want a sold running game and not this 1-2 yard zone read crap.

    Get at least 4-5avg and all is good.

    Although the 25 yards in OT against Okie State worked just fine.

    I think it is fair to call that a special circumstance. That was an impressive showcase by our Oline and by Woody.

    The worst way we could use Woody is as a specialty power back when the defense knows we are going to run it. You have to switch it up or you tip your hand, which we did a lot last year including that safety.

    I have to disagree with this; with the running backs we have this year if Sam is a leading rusher then the passing game is sucking and that still needs to be a key in our offense.

    More than likely, a majority of our rushing plays will be the zone read. In a typical zone read, there should be a 50% chance the QB keeps it and a 50% chance they give it to the running back. We will use anywhere from 3 to 6 running backs, but only one QB. Due to all this, it's very likely Richardson will lead the team in rushing.

    I don't think it is likely that he leads the team, but he will be up there. I think someone will definitely get 600-700 yards this year. Don't see SR getting that much.

    That was more Lichtenburgs fault for missing the guy he was supposed to block when he pulled. And more than that, it was Messinghams fault for calling a slow developing play like that from our own 1.
