No, please be that guy! Wish I could blame autocorrect, but it's just a mental block. I'm like the catcher who can't throw back to the mound when it comes to that name.
With Burrows injured, that's not surprising but when he's back that may change again.
Well, I don't really know if I can compare them if H-backs are included because the offenses are so different. Comparing different eras is, as a rule, pretty difficult. But certainly there's an insane amount of talent on this team. I think we've seen better depth at pure tailback before. In 1992, for example, we had:
A young Joey Galloway might have been an H-back on that team. How sick would that have been?
Still listed as OL on the team roster and hasn't been able to practice due to recovering from injury. We'll see.
His foot cracks the Earth every time he takes a step.
Typing is hard.
Should have read 2009 and 2010. Fixed.
I can only speak to that Liberty Bowl, having talked to several players the night before their trip. I don't think the team was down for some of those Citrus Bowls or Hall of Fame Bowls. They just didn't get it done for a variety of reasons - coaching, execution, turnovers, etc.
In several of those games they were actually the lower ranked team going into SEC territory (the dirty little secret SEC fans like to overlook when they talk about our head-to-head bowl record against them is that they often had a second-place SEC team in the top 5, playing closer to home, while we were a third or fourth place Big Ten team ranked at least 4-5 spots below them, so they were SUPPOSED to win those).
