OFFENSE
Harry Trotter?  More like Charles Jones, imo.  God bless him, but there's no way he should ever be getting 16 touches in a game.  Deuce is my favorite offensive player on our team and is going to have a bonkers career, IMO!  Everything I hoped Warmack could be.

Skylar Thompson still looks like a sophomore.  I like CK as a human and football player and recruiter, but i think he's done a remarkably bad job of developing Skylar Thompson.

agree fully on these points. i had a mini-argument via text during the game about trotter after i dubbed him harry "two-yard" trotter. he is not a threat. he seems like a stud IRL, fwiw.

was disappointed in Skylar but i think he was in pretty intense pain most of the game.

yeah i'm sure trotter is a baller IRL, but he's a crappy big 12 runningback.  they say runningbacks are a dime a dozen, and I think that's pretty much true for 90% of them -- with the exception of 5% at the top and 5% at the bottom.  trotter may be that bottom 5%.

What's the line?  -21?

The game is in two weeks bub. If this is going to be an "all timer ass beating" you're going to need to give me more than 21.

Doesn't matter, the Deuce is loose.

I think he got dinged up in fall camp a little bit -- if memory serves it wasn't a covid issue that kept him out on saturday.  maybe like a shoulder or elbow or something.

I loved Deuce this game, but we need a Wright or hell Trotter to be our 1-3 yard guys. Using Duece to run between tackles is very loller to me. Love the kid, but being 5'5" and 165 isn't going to cut it.

You say that, but I trust Deuce to get that yardage more than the others.  Dog fight size all that.

Often times, those short yardage situations are where you bust the big ones.

LRBIQ here.  Did we lose our running back by committee from last season?  Is
Trotter all that was left?  De V. is a true freshman, correct?

The other two from last year were grad transfers. This year will also be running back by committee, all Klieman teams have been, but the other dudes are hurt or rona'd.

Klieman inherited a roster with 0 scholarship running backs so yea I’d say that’s a fair assessment

Is there a recording of the game I can watch while teleworking so that I can make some competent posts about gridiron football?

Can/have you made posts about the work situ abroad? In the appropriate thread of course.

Earvin opted out. Probably good because he had concussion/s last year.

I thought he looked great in his opportunities.
