Freshmen have to develop as players and develop the trust of the staff. It's not rocket surgery.
Too bad Purdy kind of sucked in the 2nd half. Relatively speaking.
Everyone thought Breece was going to be a stud. It's been the rumor for 6 months.
My completely premature comparison is Terrell Davis. One cut and go type of guy, physical runner, can catch it and is a willing blocker. Not a make you miss in a phone booth guy, but enough to turn a form tackle into an arm tackle, most of which he breaks.
I think I said something about BH going down on first contact against UNI. I also remember the announcers saying that Breece missed some opportunities to bounce the run outside in our early games.
Breece looks like a completely different RB in the last 2 games. I agree with others that his running style is closer to ARob than DM. But looks like he can catch the ball as well DM. We will have to see if defenses change things up against him now that the secret is out.
He got 11 carries in Game 1 (Lang had 14). It’s not like he didn’t get an early opportunity, he just wasn’t as good and needed more time to adjust. Against Baylor and Iowa no running back got much of a chance imo. Lang was getting the job done against ULM and TCU.
If only he could put two halves together. He was bad in the first half against WVU.
*This is jimlad city. I'd hope that was clear.
I once predicted that if the tight ends got more targets, that their production in the offense would go up. Feels good to look like a geneous.
Next challenge...Spelling Bee!
I was hoping you got the reference.
Wasn't that essentially a one-handed catch?
He left yards on the field on several plays against West Virginia, but not against Texas Tech. Adding that extra effort when it looks like the play may be ending really paid off for him.
Campbell also mentioned something about Hall needing to get used to being a college student etc. so apparently he just has expectations beyond the football field too.
And this is not a knock on Hall, just what CMC went with. The intensity of college classes can suck for a freshman and getting into that rhythm can take some time (like for some of us that liked some freshman classes so much, we took them again!).
Agreed and if you put gas in a car the gas gauge will go up. Sorry, don't take offense. It's a boring Sunday and a work day tomorrow.
"Breece, man, he’s electric,” Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy said to Cyclones247. “He runs hard. He has great vision. When I hand the ball off to him, man, he makes things happen.”
Hall made plays all day in Iowa State’s 34-24 win over Texas Tech. The Kansas native rushed for 183 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries to go along with three catches for 73 yards. In a week of stellar freshmen performances – Purdue wide receiver David Bell was a monster – Hall stood out. It’s why he’s the 247Sports True Freshman of the Week.
Watching Hall run, reminds me of David Johnson when UNI came into Jack Trice and upset us twice. Johnson, I think is still playing for the Arizona Cardinals but his running style - lanky, deceptive speed and able to break arm tackles is the same.
