I second that. Dude was reeking havoc when he was in. Those long runs got a lot shorter. I saw him get skinny a couple of times and disrupt the play in the backfield.

I believe  it will  come down to what he does against Michigan State. They have been the Achilles' heel as of late. If he has a subpar performance in Norman there is plenty of time to recover. 

TTUN will be icing on the cake.

IIRC we had the same situation with Elliot when we were recruiting Dontre. I believe Elliot was told he would be the only RB and started to consider the home town team. I honestly think he would have taken a good look at Mizzou anyway, but i think  you can see the correlation.

I believe if OSU is looking to do better at his position, it is fair game for him to see if he can as well without  people saying he is afraid of competition.

I believe playing on 2 surgically repaired knees is not unheard of these days. My concern is perhaps this is not what our medical staff was worried about. Perhaps they saw something in the way the knee was repaired, which would be fine for a civilian, but with the demands of football it may not hold up. This scares me because if Mr. Davis continues to play, (Auburn has shown that they will not stand in his way), then he may have one more knee injury in him. The good news is I believe Dr. Andrews will properly repair this injury, and if the original injury reoccurs, he will make it whole again. 

I don't wish another injury on this young man.  It might be a good idea to repair both knees if in fact this is the case.

That makes sense. It could be a difference in philosophy. One doctor wants to prevent the inevitable. The other may know it is likely to happen but also knows he can fix it. I know all to well that some surgeons have a god complex and feel that can fix anything.

He was 258 in that film according to 247. If he can still move like that at 280 a lot of B1G defenses will be in trouble. Fortunately The B1G offenses have nothing to worry about.

I agree. What intrigues me is having another running back in this class was not a problem when it was Sibley, but now that the back is rated higher it is a problem. I don't want to imply that he was afraid of legit competition, but well... i guess that is what i am implying. 

If I had to choose I would still pick Dobbins. Akers has size, but given some time in the Marotti dojo Dobbins would even that advantage out. 

Oh and,

I think Lattimore doesn't win the starting CB job, but gets a crack at returns and excels.

I can't believe some of these people. Apple is a first round talent shutdown corner. Do I wish he would stay another year? Yes, and all of you probably do as well. You wanna know why? Because he is an elite player that should go in the first or second round. 

This kid was a 5 star kid that lived up to that rating. Now we want to diminish what he has accomplished here because we are a little butthurt to see him go so early. He has nothing to improve upon that he can't do at the next level, while getting paid mind you. Roby came back for his redshirt Jr year and got beat like a drum on occasion. He still went in the first round. Some project Eli to go in the first round now. That is probably the grade he received, so good for him. You think he should come back to learn a new defensive scheme with the possibility of being exposed. For what? So you feel more comfortable with the defensive backfield?  C'Mon man.

rant over...
