      Saw that. It will be interesting to see what becomes of that.

    PA you hit the running between the tackles problem nail right on the head. The problem isn’t lost on Coach Freeze an Coach Luke either as evident from reports. Good to see the ole boss and particularly the ole rascal using those noodles so well.

      Reb, a lot of people will be able take away that perimeter run game if the Rebels can’t off-set it by running between the tackles more. There are a lot of factors that go into who carries the ball. When Jeff Scott has been as good as he’s been, you want to get him the ball. You also want to be balanced and get the receivers involved in the passing game, and you want Bo Wallace doing what he’s doing in the read option. There are only so many plays to go around, but if I’Tavius Mathers is really your best power runner see what he’s got.

      On a side note, I get tickled at your “noodles” reference.
