    Thanks LF....I’ll be keeping an eye on all running backs.....Hopefully we will find a few diamonds in the rough....Looking to get 1000 yards out of Laird, Ouellette, IEriksen, Epstein, Borghi as freshman??....Probably not.....
    I hope Nolan Eriksen gets close.....
    My big concern is Beau Bisharat.....They talk about the transfer getting most of the carries this year.....Bisharat is a Junior this year, turning down Standford looks worse and worse as the years go on.....I’m rooting hard for BB getting Lindsey-like carries......He could be a 1000 yard back easy.....Remember, this guy is no preferred walk on, he was a highly recruited big running back......

    I hope Bisharat actually gets a chance as well. He is up against the caste system though and he might of been sold a bunch of BS to commit to Colorado so they would not have to lose him to another Pac 12 team.

    BYU redshirt junior Beau Hoge has transitioned to running back.

    Hoge (6'1/220), the son of former NFL running back Merril Hoge, appeared in three games at the quarterback position last season. "It was kind of tough at first when [the coaches] approached me about it," Hoge said earlier this month. "But at the end of the day, it is all about whatever is best for the team." With Hoge's position change the race for the BYU starting quarterback job is down to three competitors: senior Tanner Mangum, sophomore Joe Critchlow and freshman Zach Wilson. Mangum started eight games last season for BYU, which opens its season September 1 at Arizona.

    Just perused my SI college football preview edition. Funny how they have Stanford’s Bryce Love as the Heisman front runner...........somewhere between Reggie Bush and Bryce Love I heard that PAC-12 running backs couldn’t win the Heisman because they didn’t get enough ‘East coast exposure’ and played a ‘weak schedule’........LOL.......along with Toby Gerhart and Christian McCaffrey

    While looking to find out where Quaide Weimerskirch from GA Tech transferred (he transferred to D2 University of West Florida) I found out their returning starter at RB is also white! His name is Chris Schwarz and he is a 5’10” 205lb JR, he had 999 all purpose yards last season, hope they can perform well and maybe get NFL looks in a couple years. Despite being D2 West Florida is a solid team, they made it to the championship game last season in only their second season of having a football team.
