    CMC alluded last week to Hall needing to keep up the work and practice habits. There's exceptions and CMC has played guys like Mike Rose out of the gate because they earned it, but it takes a long while to get the physical and mental habits needed to get rolling in a college system.

    Let's be excited that it's happening in the most important part of the season instead of in some meaningless rivalry game.

    It almost has to be. I can't think of anyone else from that era who would be in a position to do it.

    Only able to see the highlights but whooo he's smooth in the open. And his acceleration out of contact is tough.

    His one cut and go style would have worked a lot better this season.

    BH chucking a safety and staying inbounds on his 75 yard td shows you the guy is a freak.

    Yeah, I think Hoppman’s frosh season would have been 1960. I believe Warren’s 2 games are the top 2 marks.

    Campbell seems to have a talent for bringing guys along and putting them in positions to excel in big ways. Plus he gave every upperclassman ample opportunities to take the spot. Nobody in the running back room has any reason to feel slighted they had their chances and plenty of them.

    Agreed. Fire CMC for making true freshman show consistency in practice first before using them. You want to see the transfer portal light up??? Just bring in untested freshmen and put them with the ones immediately. Let the man coach.

    For sure. David Montgomery is an all-time great Cyclone but Hall looks like he's going to be a special player as well. He's so explosive.

    Hard to believe how complete he is for a Freshman. He can block, catch, run guys over, and run away from everyone. Kind of reminds me of an A-rob, but with a lot higher ceiling.

    Y’know, I’ll be watching to see when his cousin, Davenport Central’s Roger Craig, weighs in. Craig was a really good back, and he was great at catching passes out of the backfield.

    Er, for the 49ers. Distinctly not for Tom Osborne’s Cornhuskers.

    I just want to highlight the one-handed, over the head catch he had that went for huge yardage. Most every single college football player drops that.

    Yeah, that was a crazy good catch, especially for a non-wide receiver, and for some reason it just got completely glossed over by the announcers.

    Well. Let’s see if he can bump those totals up a little the next few games.

    I thought he dropped it. It wasn't a good pass and it looked like it went over his head, but then he just kept running. Kid's a do it all stud and will be a big reason as to why we'll continue to win games.

    Ya he only had 183 yards. He's got a long ways to go to match Davis' single game record. (jimlad, but serious as a heart attack)

    I was actually thinking about just how bad defenses like OSU and KU’s are the remainder of the season. I don’t think he’s going to catch Warren’s freshman season total.

    Yesterday Whitver was trying to put a damper on the “Breece will break records” talk by saying, “How quickly people forget Troy Davis”.

    True, but Troy really only played two seasons, languishing on the bench as a freshman and then leaving early. Formidable numbers, but not insurmountable.

    He is just a Freshman, and it generally takes any freshman a few weeks of playing games to get the feel for how fast the game is, and what it takes to be a quality player at this level. Campbell is correct in starting him out slowly, and then reading how well things are going. The Clemson QB and the QB at Alabama were treated the same way. Both sat and watched the first few games, Purdy played one series I think before the OSU game, it was only after Kemp told the coaches that Purdy was ready to play, that they let him really take the field and he has not looked back since then.

    Patience is a virtue with young players, let not forget we also have another highly ranked freshman running back that hopefully we will red shirt and use both of them next season.
