With all of the debate about Jantz and Barnett, something that gets overlooked are the actual stats on running the read-option. Jantz has 53 rushing attempts already...he is averaging 1.5 ypc. He averaged 2.6 on 84 carries last year. As others have mentioned, it's like we are hell bent on fitting that square peg into a round hole. In comparison, Shontrelle Johnson has 42 caries and James White has 37. Barnett on the other hand...had 104 attempts for 437 yards for 4.2 ypc last year. All against Big 12 teams. It seems if the staff really wants to run the read-option as much as handing it off to the backs, then Barnett should be the guy...especially if Rhoads told Mess to run the ball more this year. If Jantz is the guy, why don't we modify our offense a little and play to his strengths??
